Leonardo DiCaprio is not giving up his New York City “bachelor pad” to permanently live in Los Angeles with girlfriend Camila Morrone, despite a false report. Gossip Cop can correct the story. It simply isn’t accurate.
According to OK!, the actor will be relegated to LA “for the foreseeable future” while working on his latest movie with Martin Scorsese, Killers of the Flower Moon. An anonymous “insider” says this has inspired DiCaprio to sell his Manhattan apartment and permanently move into an “LA love nest” with his girlfriend.
“It’s the perfect time for him to make this move,” says the tabloid’s supposed source. “His New York condo was never much to [Morrone’s] taste. It was basically a man cave where he and his buddies could party.” The outlet goes on to say that DiCaprio is willing to move cross-country for good if it will make his girlfriend happy.
The premise is coming from an untraceable source, but Gossip Cop ran the story by DiCaprio’s rep, who tells us on the record that it’s “false.” Not only is the whole article a work of fiction, but it also seems to be based on an incorrect assumption about the filming location of the actor’s upcoming movie.
Killers of the Flower Moon is based on a non-fiction novel about the murders of Osage tribal members in Oklahoma and the founding of the FBI. Earlier this month, Scorsese posted pictures of himself on Instagram scouting shooting locations in Osage County, Oklahoma. Although the filming locations haven’t been set in stone yet, it’s fair to assume that Scorsese will want to focus on the geographical places where the source material actually occurred.
Simply put, DiCaprio’s new movie won’t be shooting in LA, so the idea that he’s decided to live there full-time because he’ll be in town anyway isn’t accurate. It should also be noted, the actor already owns multiple properties on the West Coast, where he spends plenty of time. It’s not as if the actor is a born-and-bred New Yorker who’s been refusing to live anywhere else.
Of course, OK! has a very poor track record when it comes to reporting about the movie star. Gossip Cop busted the magazine a few weeks ago for falsely claiming Brad Pitt had helped DiCaprio propose to Morrone. That didn’t happen, and this latest article doesn’t make any mention of the actor and his girlfriend being engaged. In May, the tabloid wrongly reported that Morrone was upset about DiCaprio’s keeping in touch with his exes. That wasn’t true either, but the outlet likes to mix in phony drama along with stories about fake engagements and living arrangements.
