Is Leonardo DiCaprio’s new girlfriend a 26-year-old Kosovan beauty queen?

These are some photos of Leonardo DiCaprio in Miami in late January. Leo was in Miami for several weeks, partying with Gerard Butler, Mel Gibson and Bradley Cooper, and of course the P-ssy Posse (Leo’s constant entourage). I kept looking through this photo set to see if I could determine who these ladies were, but I still don’t know for sure. Did Leo bring some girlfriends along or were these just some girls he picked up in Miami? And is one of them a Kosovan beauty queen? Because allegedly Leo’s new girlfriend is a Kosovan beauty queen named Aferdita Dreshaj. As opposed to 19-year-old Hungarian underwear model Barbara Palvin.

Leonardo DiCaprio sparked rumours he may have been taken off the single market after he was spotted frolicking with a mystery blonde in Miami. But Leo fans can relax as the Hollywood actor’s mystery blonde has been revealed as Kosovan beauty queen and Miss Universe Kosovo 2011 finalist Aferdita Dreshaj – and the stunning model has said they are just friends.

Leo, who split from Victoria’s Secret model Erin Heatherton last year, was pictured shirtless getting cosy with the stunning model.

Dreshaj told E! news: ‘We were all just hanging out as friends.’ On her Twitter feed the blonde describes herself as a model, singer and beauty queen.

Earlier that same day, a shirtless Bradley Cooper had also been spotted with Leo on the balcony, watching passers by on the beach.

After failing to pick up an Oscar nomination for his role in Django, Leonardo seems to have snubbed awards season, preferring to relax in the sunshine state.

At the beginning of January he was spotted on board his yacht with Naomi Campbell and this weekend he was reportedly enjoying the Miami nightlife.

Yeah, Leo doesn’t have female friends, last I checked. I also glanced through Aferdita’s Twitter, and… she looks like Leo’s type. Which is to say she could be either of the women in these photos, and she sort of looks interchangeable with several current Victoria’s Secret models. Celebuzz had a “Seven Things To Know About” piece and they claim she’s 26 years old – which is still not an amazing age difference, but it’s way better than 19-year-old Barbara Palvin. Also, Aferdita is six feet tall. Good to know!

    I wish Leo would go for a REAL woman instead of a stick figure. Guess a woman with some curves would be too much for him to handle!! Waiter… Please bring that girl a cheeseburger…I’ll buy!!!

    Does he have one skinny leg?
    I’m so creeped out by GROWN adults dating teenagers/really young adults. I don’t know how old Leo is (mid-30′s?) but he has no business with a 19 year old. Relationships like that can mindf*ck you so hard. Not that ones with peers can’t, it’s just a really strange dynamic

  3. T.C. says:

    All these Leo dating stories are well placed PR stories for no name models to get some press.

  4. Oops says:

    I thought she denied it … I’m sure another blond model in her early 20 will appear

  5. Maria says:

    The woman in the photos actually is Kendall Kowitz, another model Leo was hanging out with (I know, surpise!). The woman he was photographed with on the balcony is Aferdita Dashaj.

    After the news about Aferdita broke, Kendall tweeted the following: “Don’t ask to make you my priority if I’m going to be your last option.”

    I find his rotating stable of interchangeable women to be so distasteful. I like him as an actor, but my God is he a shallow man.

  6. MG says:

    I just read a story that he was dating that Robbie chick, his co-star in the Wolf of Wall Street????

  7. SleepyJane says:

    Leo is looking awful as of late.

  8. Tulip says:

    @Lizzie 1013. I saw your comment and laughed! Then I read Jinni and Maria’s comments and felt bad. And then I thought, I just want this man to see what a woman his age looks like, with a slower metabolism (like his) and maybe some cellulite. He’s in total denial about what the hell age has done to him (and you KNOW Leo doesn’t say no to cheeseburgers himself but he hangs around women who would have to say no, just so they could maintain their weight. ). Yeah. Date a woman your own age just once to face your fears Leo. Jerk.

    So now Leo’s moved on to beauty queens? Oy. In some ways he’s worse than Clooney, and he started much younger. Leo hasn’t looked hot to me since Titanic/R+J. These days, he’s downright appealing. Oh well, at least the girls get a lot of media mileage.

  10. vvvoid says:

    Aferdita is fit to be part of his harem or whatever, but he’d never roll her out as the new model girlfriend. He is very particular about his type, and if you google images of her you’ll see that she goes into drag queen way too easily. He likes them bland and inoffensive. Kowitz is way more his type I’d say.

    • Maria says:

      Completely agree about Aferdita. Your comment that she “goes into drag queen way too easily” made me laugh; so true). There’s no way she’s getting introduced to Mama Irmelin. There’s something about her (the clothes, the obvious plastic surgery, the makeup, etc.) that looks trashy. While Leo clearly has no problem with trashy, those girls don’t make the “official girlfriend” cut.As for Kendall, he doesn’t look interested in her,so I will be surprised if she makes the new model girlfriend cut either.

      • vvvoid says:

        His pathology is deep, my god. Looking at photos of mama Irmelin, it’s strikingly obvious that he goes after girls who resemble a young version of her. Wow.
        I was so thoroughly in love with him when I was a kid after watching Romeo & Juliet. Kind of got over it after Titanic came out [though I did see it in theaters 5 times].
        Is he known to be a cheater or anything? I haven’t heard that. Seems like he has shallow, inoffensive relationships with shallow, inoffensive women.

    • Christina says:

      ”She goes into drag queen way too easily” LOL! Is she by any chance friends with Gerard Butler’s Romanian ‘model girlfriend’?

  11. Mia 4S says:

    26? Careful Leo she’s probably at least very close to wanting to have an actual conversation. ;-)

    So if he’s taking time off will this be what we have to look forward too? A model revue? I mean Gatsby apparently sucks and that Wall Street movie seems redundant so it could be a long time before Leo is interesting again.

  12. Simmy says:

    Yawn. If he ever dates someone close to his own age, that will be worth gossiping about.

  13. Jan says:

    Why do people care who he dates? He is a single, rich, good looking man. He can date who ever and how ever many women he wants. I have not heard any rumor he is someone’s daddy, which means he wears his “socks”. Good for him. See as many women as you want Leo. You are single and free.

  14. Hmmm says:

    It looks like he leads such an empty life.

  15. KCO says:

    The blonde model is Kendall Kowitz. She’s a sweet girl from Portland, who moved to LA
    a year ago or so.

  16. Chelsea's handler says:

    I wonder if Leo ever gets sick of the site of the hanger oners who use him to get women that would otherwise be out of their league.

  17. mytbean says:

    I just re-watched Man in the Iron Mask and thought how ironic it was to see Leo play the philandering Louis XIV…

    • vvvoid says:

      He had already stole my little 4th grade heart by Romeo and Juliet, but he sealed the deal with Man In The Iron Mask. Oh man, he always played those ”help me, I’m vulnerable and sensitive” roles so well back then. Even as a 9 year old I wanted to nurture him and kiss those pretty, almost painted lips. Jack Dawson, Romeo, Louis XIV’s twin brother Philippe, etc., he was the epitome of Prince In Distress and it worked me right over.
      Same with Brad Pitt in Interview With A Vampire. That was the greatest celeb crush I ever had. I remember being like 8 and sobbing when I realized Louis wasn’t real and that Brad was the real person and he may be nothing like that, lol. Existential crisis similar to being younger than that and realizing I’d never be a genie like Barbara Eden.
      Leo went downhill big time though. I still love him [Calvin Candie ftw] as an actor, and his life seems vapid but also pretty harmless. Just a tad creepy.

  18. Mr.Smurf says:

    Ugh, what’s wrong with him? I have no issues with anyone dating someone a lot younger, as long as it’s legal. But seriously, at least date someone who can sound intelligent.

    I’m not saying all models are stupid, but they’re not around to name all the amendments to the constitution.

    The fact that he’s dating only models says t here things:
    A- he is gayer than gay
    B-he’s still heartbroken over Gisele
    C- he’s just a playboy who wants no commitments (nothing wrong with that)

    Despite all you guys who think he’s ugly, I actually think he’s pretty cute. He needs to keep scruff though, if not a full out beard. He looked beautiful in Django Unchained- and was great in it.

    I guess it’ll have to take hearing something worse about him than being a mama’s boy. I don’t think he can be worse than the very immature boys I have to put up with at school.
