Playboy model says Leonardo DiCaprio had surprising answer when asked why he never dates anyone older than 25

Hieke Konings claims to have met DiCaprio on a night out in Los Angeles

Playboy model Hieke Konings has claimed Leonardo DiCaprio had a surprising answer for her when she asked him about dating women over the age of 25.

DiCaprio, 49, has been a heartthrob for millions of people ever since he took on a leading role in the 1996 film Romeo + Juliet, and starred as the charming young Jack in Titanic.

Decades later, DiCaprio is still devastating fans by striking up relationships with people who aren't them, but over the years the actor has gained attention for his involvement with women up to the age of 25.

Countless memes have been made about the actor 'breaking up' with women once they reach the age of 25, with some of his previous relationships providing fuel for the jokes.

In 2016, DiCaprio was linked to actor Nina Agdal, but the pair went their separate ways when Agdal was 25 years old.

One of DiCaprio's more recent relationships with model Camila Morrone also ended just one month after she turned 25.

Now Konings, 22, has shared claimed about DiCaprio after she allegedly had an encounter with him at an invite-only nightclub in Los Angeles.

Konings said she was approached by DiCaprio's security.

The Playboy model, who appears on the cover of the Dutch edition of Playboy, said: "I saw him sitting there in his black hoodie and black cap and we made eye contact."

Konings claimed DiCaprio's manager told her the actor wanted to talk to her, so she went over to his table and took the opportunity to ask DiCaprio about the alleged under-25-trend.

According to the model, DiCaprio had a surprising response as he admitted he was 'guilty'.

Konings further claimed she shared a snog with DiCaprio, but despite what many of his fans might expect, she said it was 'not the best' she'd had.

Konings then said she told the star she 'didn't know him well enough' to take anything further, to which DiCaprio responded 'sweetly'.

It's unclear when Konings' alleged encounter with DiCaprio took place, but most recently the actor has been linked to Italian model Vittoria Ceretti - who, it's worth noting, is 25, and has been since June 2023.

DiCaprio and Ceretti were spotted getting ice cream together in Santa Barbara in August, before being spotted again the following month dancing in Ibiza.

Ceretti has modelled for the likes of Alexander McQueen and Versace during her career, and in November an insider told Us Weekly DiCaprio was 'completely smitten' with the model.

“It's going so well that Leo’s actually being exclusive,” the source claimed. “Vittoria is all he thinks about.”

UNILAD has contacted representatives for DiCaprio for comment about Konings' claims.
