After Naya Rivera embarked on a romance with David Spade back in April, we thought nothing could surprise us anymore when it came to Hollywood hookup rumors. Boy, were we ever wrong!
Bella Hadid, who has been straight-up slaying as the new Queen of Cannes, had our jaws dropped over the buzz about who she’s been getting extra friendly with while attending the French film festival.
The 20-year-old model, who last dated Selena Gomez’s boyfriend The Weeknd, was apparently spotted chatting it up with one Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio at the amfAR charity gala, where she walked the runway as part of the “Fashion for Relief” event.
The rumors apparently began to fly when a single Hadid placed her hand on the newly single 42-year-old’s shoulder, all but causing a Twitter firestorm.
While DiCaprio would appear to be a total 180 from Hadid’s last beau, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time he’s hooked up with a model of the moment — The Revenant actor been linked to everyone from Gisele Bündchen and Helena Christensen to Bar Rafeali.
Still, a source for E! says we’re not to believe the hype, and that the two are “just friends.” And yet… we can’t quite seem to fully shake the idea from our minds. After all, where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire… usually. Right?
What do you think about these two as a possible new thing? Tell us over @BritandCo.
