The real-estate developer isn’t buying the recent dating rumours about his daughter.
Mohamed Hadid, the father of supermodel Gigi Hadid, has dismissed rumours that his daughter is dating Leonardo DiCaprio.
Speculation that the two were dating began after they were spotted hanging out together in recent weeks.
A source told Page Six: “They have mostly been hanging out with groups and solo a handful of times.
“[DiCaprio] is not someone who is in and out of relationships. He doesn’t jump around hooking up.”
They added that the pair are “taking it slow”.
Mohamed, however, has spoken out against the speculation and maintains that the pair are just friends.
He told the Daily Mail: “I met Mr. DiCaprio in St. Tropez four or five years ago and he is a very nice man. I liked him.
“They are friends. They have known each other for some time. I don’t think they are dating. I believe they are just good friends. But I really don’t know. I don’t comment on my daughter’s personal relationships. I have no say in who she’s dating.”
Just a few weeks ago, news broke that Leo had ended things with his former girlfriend, actress, and model Camilla Morrone. It’s understood that they had been dating for five years.
At the time, a source told The Sun: “Leo and Camila ended their relationship over the summer.
“There are no bad feelings between them. It just came to a natural conclusion.”
Gigi, meanwhile, was previously in a relationship with One Direction singer Zayn Malik. The pair were in an on-off relationship for years, but eventually parted ways last year.
They officially split last year following an alleged altercation between Zayn and Gigi’s mother Yolanda.
They do have a child together – a daughter called Khai – and are reportedly enjoying their co-parenting journey.
