Brazilian model Kat Torres may have lied about her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio for publicity. Last week, the former beauty queen claimed she is dating the “Great Gatsby” actor.
Torres, 24, who was born in the Brazilian city Belem, told Brazilian newspaper Extra, “I met Leo in Cannes. We were staying in the same house at the festival,” which took place in May. Regarding photos taken of the pair at the time, she said: “I really don’t know how the photographers got the picture because we were well guarded and no one could come close in any circumstances.”
Torres even complimented her “new boyfriend,” saying, “Leo is amazing, but I worry about what he will think about me talking to you. We have a pact that nothing can ever be said about our relationship.”
However, on Thursday, DiCaprio, 38, was seen dining in New York with German model Toni Garrn, whom he has been dating since at least June, and the pair later headed to Merchants River House in Battery Park.
According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the actor’s friends are calling Torres’ bluff. “[He] met Kat once five months ago with Toni. They aren’t dating.”
DiCaprio has dated a slew of beauties over the years, including Victoria’s Secret models Erin Heatherton and Gisele Bundchen.
