On early Friday morning, Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid were spotted in Soho, leaving the restaurant Cipriani Downtown after reportedly enjoying a large, late dinner at the high-end establishment. Page Six reports the pair were not seated next to one another during the meal, which included a group of over twenty people, including musical artists FKA Twigs. They also left the restaurant separately a few minutes apart just before 2 AM.
Despite the lack of proximity, the sighting has fans wondering if the pair are dating again. The 48-year-old actor and 28-year-old model were rumored to be seeing each other last year, though the relationship supposedly fizzled out after they spent the holidays apart — Hadid with her daughter Khai, who she shares with her ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik, and DiCaprio with a bunch of friends on a party yacht.
After the end of their relationship, DiCaprio was romantically linked to models Irina Shayk, Eden Polani, and Victoria Lamas while Hadid did not appear to be publicly dating anyone. However, Hadid and DiCaprio have been spotted a few times together in recent months, including a pre-Oscars party in March hosted by Darren Dzienciol and Richie Akiva where a source told People, “There was no PDA, but they were together nearly the entire night and barely moved from their spot.”
In February, they were seen at Casa Cipriani in Milan at a dinner with Kendall Jenner and Dakota Johnson. Group dinners seem to be their thing. The former couple initially separated because Hadid was too busy being a mom to 2-year-old Khai. A source told Page Six in 2022, “Gigi doesn’t have the energy to run after DiCaprio… His routine is too much for her.”
At the very least, they remain friends who dine.
