Leonardo DiCaprio rang in the new year on a yacht off St. Barts, per a report on Page Six. Reportedly joining the 48-year-old Oscar-winner was Victoria Lamas, the 23-year-old model he has been seen with following Gigi Hadid dating rumors. Though the official word is that DiCaprio and Lamas are just friends, the tabloid noted this is their “fourth hang out in less than a month.”
Lamas is the second of three daughters of actors Lorenzo Lamas and Kathleen Kinmont. Victoria did not appear on the short-lived 2009 reality series Leave Ot to Lamas, which featured hijinks between her father, stepmother, and other half- and step-siblings.
Papa Lamas had previously told the New York Post that he knew his daughter “liked [DiCaprio] very much” but was not apprised of the specific circumstances. He did, however, use the word smitten, then joked he didn’t want his daughter taking any “trans-Atlantic cruises with Leo,” a reference to the fate of the passengers in Titanic. (Dad jokes!)
Not only did the Caribbean-based yacht stay afloat this New Year’s Eve, but it also held a surfeit of celebrities. Page Six reported that Drake was aboard, as was DiCaprio’s old buddy (and current Babylon scene stealer) Tobey Maguire.
E! News noted that on the night before New Year’s Eve, DiCaprio, Drake, Lenny Kravitz, Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup, Taika Waititi and Rita Ora, and Chase Hudson were all at the Hotel Emeraude on St. Barts (officially the Collectivité territoriale de Saint-Barthélemy) for a UNICEF gala.
Leonardo DiCaprio broke up with Camila Morrone, his girlfriend of four years, last August. It has been noted from time to time that the Revenant and Wolf of Wall Street star has a tendency to date younger women. Indeed, the data shows that the actor, historically, has a cut-off after the age of 25, so let’s check back on all this in two years.
In case you were wondering what DiCaprio did last New Year’s Eve…he and Morrone were on a yacht off St. Barts with friends like Lukas Haas after attending a party with Jeff Bezos.
