I was shocked to see new photos of Leonardo DiCaprio this week – because they weren’t taken in Cannes, but in New York. How is Leo still in New York when Cannes – and all the parties in Cannes – has been underway for a full seven days? There’s time. The amfAR gala is on Thursday. Or …maybe not. amfAR in Cannes has always been closely associated with Harvey Weinstein. The foundation itself has been affected by that connection since the revelations about Harvey were made public. Maybe that’s why Leo is avoiding the festival – not because he doesn’t party anymore but in the wake of Harvey’s scandals and the Cannes reputation for being two weeks of debauchery (Page Six’s headline last week about Cannes had the word “hookers” in the title), perhaps he’s been advised to stay away, or at least put his Cannes model action on pause for a year. You know that there have always been rumours that Leo allegedly has his people calling modelling agencies and flying girls in for his yacht parties as entertainment, right?
Leo and his current bonafide Camila Morrone were papped yesterday in New York in matching white tees. The night before, he and Camila had dinner with Hailey Baldwin. Shawn Mendes was not there. Is that inevitable though? Are we going to see Leo leaving a restaurant one day with Shawn Mendes? Will Shawn Mendes apply for Wolf Pack membership? I want to believe that Shawn wouldn’t want to be part of something so f-cking stupid.
