Shortly after refusing to enter a party because Keeping Up With the Kardashians was filming inside—"He didn't want to be filmed for the show, he wouldn't have wanted to be filmed for anything," the source elaborated, "but especially not that one,"—Leonardo DiCaprio is once again in the headlines for his admirable bravery when faced with Hollywood's tabloid fodders. This time: Justin Bieber.
Now, in an effort to be responsible, we do need to point out that this rumor was published by the not-quite-reputable Star magazine...but whatever, it's hilarious anyway. According to the report, DiCaprio refused an invite to party with Bieber when they ended up at the same club because, and this is verbatim, "he thinks Justin’s a little twit."
We'll just include the Star excerpt to explain the whole story, because they explain it with so much class:
“Justin was strutting his stuff all over the club, walking around shirtless and scoping out chicks,” a source tells Star. “But when he heard Leo was there, he had his bodyguard muscle a path to where Leo was sitting.”
Hoping to party with the Wolf of Wall Street star — and the bevy of girls in his VIP area — the Biebs sent his goon to ask permission. “Justin was nodding and smiling in Leo’s direction, but Leo just shook his head no and waved him off,” a witness tattles. “He thinks Justin’s a little twit. Leo doesn’t want or need photo ops with publicity-hungry, manufactured pop stars.”
Making this story more likely, as Uproxx points out: The two were at the same club, according to multiple reports from actual reputable sources like Esquire—and Lainey Gossip has photos (which include Bieber with Rick Ross—AMAZING.) It doesn't sound farfetched either, so we're actually leaning towards believing this.
You go, Leo. Stand up for what's right.
