Is there a Bro on the planet with more admirable swagger than Leonardo DiCaprio? Last week I blogged about how he refused to go to a party because the hobbit mafia known as The Kardashians were in attendance, complete with Bruce Jenner’s son DJing and the hobbit Vito Corleone himself fist-pounding. Today another story about Leonardo DiCaprio’s general Hollywood Bro-ness hits the gossip rags, this time involving every Bro’s enemy #1, Justin Bieber.
Star Magazine reports that Leo threw some serious party shade to Bieber at the Cannes Film Fest last month. Dude is picky with who he’s pictured hanging out with. I can’t blame him in the least. The details:
“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.”
Star Magazine is one of those places that reports on “sources” without saying who they are. But our friends at Esquire point out that yes, they were at the same club on the same night in the South of France. Yes, there are pictures. Yes, douche-king Justin Bieber took his shirt off. Why the hell would anyone as cool as Leonardo DiCaprio want to be seen in public with someone who isn’t wearing a shirt?
Once again, well played, Leo. Your status as Bro King amongst mortals continues to amaze us. You keep being you.
