Well, this is unexpected! One of Leonardo DiCaprio’s former flames gave him a late night call to congratulate him on his long-awaited Oscar win on Feb. 28 – Rihanna! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY what RiRi said to the actor, here.
Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio, 41, and former lover Rihanna, 28, are on pretty good terms, because the singer called him up late on Feb. 28 following the Academy Awards. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she wanted to congratulate him on his overdue Oscar win. Find out what she said to Leo, right here!
“She was very happy that he won an Oscar last night and decided to congratulate him briefly via FaceTime,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It was a very quick conversation, and Ri told him she was ‘proud’ of him.” So sweet! Rihanna and Leo haven’t been caught out together since they secretly dated in May 2015, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t care about the actor, and Feb. 28 was a major night for him. You can stream Riri’s music RIGHT HERE.
So how did Leo feel about her reaching out to him? “Leo was speechless because he wasn’t expecting her to call,” the source explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “Leo thanked her and held up the Oscar so she could see it. That was pretty much the extent of their phone call.” It sounds like it might turn into a date sometime soon, though. “It’s a big deal for Leo, and Ri wants to at least take him to dinner so they can celebrate soon.”
So does that mean a reunion might be in the cards? Not so much. “Rihanna can’t stand Leo sometimes because he’s such a bad boy and a player,” the source continued EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “Clearly, they’re not dating but they do have a connection and continue to talk and even FaceTime.” We’re glad they can be so civil.
Leo’s rep denies that Rihanna called Leo to congratulate him.
