LEONARDO DICAPRIO LEAVING WIFE FOR GIRLFRIEND
August 28 2010
Los Angeles, CA – It’s never a healthy thing to poke ones nose into other people’s business despite the fact that all of us do it regularly. While we may feel guilt in butting in on the lives of people we know, no such inhibitions exist when it comes the
rich and famous. With them the social barriers are totally removed and just about everything is fair game. Their loves and their breakups are often as compelling as the stories they give us on the big screen or in music.
Surprisingly Leonardo DiCaprio was suffered little of that intervention despite being one of the biggest movies stars in the world. True, people involve themselves to some degree but all in all, for a star of his stature, DiCaprio has been relatively free from nosy neighbours trying to get into his business. That is even true this year when he became, arguably, the star people always expected him to be. No longer struggling in mid-range movies, DiCaprio headlined two blockbusters this year and did it his own way, finally making him a real movie star. Along with that success though has come a new wave of interest in his personal life including the recent revelation that he had been granted a restraining order against his estranged wife and is co-habituating with another woman.
“She repeatedly tried to contact me, sending me unwanted and unsolicited letters in which she expressed delusional thoughts and irrational feelings, calling and showing up at business I am associated with and, most recently, locating and traveling to my private residence acting aggressively and yelling and screaming,” DiCaprio told the court in a prepared statement. “I am frightened of Ms. Bistriceanu and feel that my personal safety, and the personal safety of those around me, is in jeopardy.”
It was also revealed that his wife, 41-year old Livia Bistriceanu, is pregnant with his child, something the actor denies. He is currently dating model Bar Refaeli who is apparently well liked by his family despite being a home wrecker.
“This, frankly, is something I think few people would have expected coming from DiCaprio. He has built this reputation as a good guy, as a caring and sensitive person interested in charity and just generally being nice. Sure he’s a movie star and cavorts with other rich and famous and beautiful people but that’s to be expected. The fact that he is married, married surreptitiously I might add, and has been cheating on his wife is really disturbing and could turn all the good will he has earned in the last year away,” said Scrape TV Entertainment analyst Tracey Temple. “I mean this is Hollywood and I’m sure people will eventually forget about things, probably, there’s no guarantee. This baby thing really complicates things. A shattered relationship is liveable, but ditching a baby is something else entirely, particularly if the baby is indeed Jesus Christ. He would be risking billions of fans all around the world if he is indeed the father of the saviour and that will hurt his future box office take.”
If DiCaprio were indeed the father of Christ he would also be God rendering box office receipts largely irrelevant.
“Frankly this woman sounds a little off. She’s on all kinds of medication and appears pretty delusional so perhaps it makes sense that he would want to get out of the relationship but it’s really a matter of how you deal with it, from a business perspective anyways,” continued Temple. “It would be a shame to see his career undone by this kind of thing. Say what you want about him the guy has put his time in and paid his dues. He’s earned this latest success and it would be a shame to see everything fall apart because of a little personal indiscretion.”
Church officials had no comment on the situation.
