Leonardo DiCaprio's Stepbrother Is On The Run


Adam Farrar, Leonardo DiCaprio’s stepbrother, is on the run from US police, according to reports.

An actor and director himself, Farrar currently has a warrant out for his arrest, after he failed to turn up to court over a petty theft case.

44-year-old Farrar and his partner Charity Moore were arrested in January and charged with trying to steal goods worth less than £700.

Bail was set at £2100 for the pair, but neither showed up for the hearing on February 18.


Farrar is the other son of DiCaprio’s father, George, who moved in with Farrar’s mother Peggy when he split with DiCaprio’s mother when young Leo was just one.

It’s said that he’s struggled with drug problems in the past.

“Adam continues to run away from responsibilities and it’s going to land him in jail again,” a family source told The Sun.

“He’s struggled before with drugs and although he makes promises to get clean, he gets caught up in something else.


“Leo is sympathetic but this is the latest in a long line of offences and he’s at the end of his tether.

“He got fed up with Adam asking to borrow money and not paying it back. No one knows where Adam and Charity have gone.”

It was Adam who first inspired the young Leonardo to go into acting, after landing roles in adverts, movies and TV shows like ‘Battlestar Galactica’ spin-off 'Galactica 1980’, and 'Quincy M.E.’.


While Leonardo’s career took flight in the 90s, Farrar’s faltered, his last booked job on IMDb listed as a small role in Burt Reynolds crime drama 'Pups’ in 1999.
