Neelam Gill denies being Leo DiCaprio’s ‘new flame’ as she vacations on his yacht

The rumors about Leonardo DiCaprio and Neelam Gill started around the Cannes Film Festival. People saw them together at one of the hotels, and while the rumors weren’t very specific, it did seem interesting. Neelam is 28 years old and British-Indian. Leo seemed to raise his age cutoff to 29, so I thought it was more than possible that Neelam and Leo were actually happening, especially since Neelam kept flying out to Leo’s location. A month ago, she was on Leo’s yacht for several days, alongside friends and Leo’s parents. In recent days, she’s been back on his yacht as the boat makes its way around Sardinia. Again, other people are around and there seems to be several model-looking women on the yacht. Which brings me to this: Neelam is now formally denying that she’s Leo’s new girlfriend.

Neelam Gill is putting those Leonardo DiCaprio romance rumors to rest. On Friday, the model and DiCaprio were spotted yachting together in Sardinia, sparking speculation that the pair was an item. Just hours after the two were pictured together, Gill, 28, took to Instagram to speak her truth.

“Just to clear up any rumors… I am not Leonardo DiCaprio’s ‘new flame,’ ” the activist wrote. “In fact, I am in a committed relationship with his good friend, and have been for many months now. The only reason we have been pictured in the same vicinity is because I have been there with my partner. I hope this clears up all the false stories.”

The last time DiCaprio, 48, and Gill were spotted together was in the presence of The Wolf of Wall Street actor’s other rumored fling, Gigi Hadid. In June, the models arrived at an up-scale London restaurant first, followed by DiCaprio and his parents moments later.

The first rule of Leo D’s Girlfriend Experience is that you don’t talk about Leo. That being said, when he has an official girlfriend, she’s always free to confirm the news and she usually does just that (think Camila Morrone and Kelly Rohrbach). It would be a new thing if Leo really was dating Neelam and she just denied it outright on her social media. So… Leo is not dating a Desi girl. But he’s good friends with Neelam’s boyfriend or girlfriend. Hm.

    I believe her.
    She’s very pretty but he goes for blondes.

  2. snappyfish says:

    I know she is friends with Tatiana who is with Toby so I’m guessing she is with another member of the posse. For wherever Leo is, Toby & Lukas are close behind

  3. AlpineWitch says:

    His dating life has become such a mess that now women runs to deny it haha
    Lol how the ‘mighty’ has fallen…same with Tom Cruise

  4. Twin Falls says:

    She’s very pretty. I wonder why it bothers her for people to think she’s dating Leo if she’s okay with riding around on his yacht. Like what’s really the difference and why would his friend care if they aren’t even publicly acknowledging that relationship? Rich people problems.

    • C says:

      To be fair she says it right there that she’s dating someone else, so, yeah, I can see wanting to clarify it.

      • Twin Falls says:

        I guess saying I’m in a relationship but I’m not going to say with who just know it’s not Leo seems odd to me.

      • BQM says:

        @twin falls She could want some privacy about her personal life. Hence not naming her partner and, more importantly, not wanting the attention and hassle that goes with Leo rumors.

      • Twin Falls says:

        She probably does and I understand that’s a reasonable want.

    • Fabiola says:

      She must be dating his friend that’s the only reason I could see her denying it

  5. manda says:

    People magazine is so annoying. They just give bare minimum details written on a fifth grade level. Is she an activist? Maybe talk about that some more or not at all, but don’t just call her an activist without some explanation.

    That being said, she is gorgeous!

    • Eurydice says:

      I’ve seen her called “model and activist” in other articles, but I suppose it depends on what is meant by “activist.” From what I’ve seen, she’s talked about her own issues with stress and depression from the pressures of the modeling world. Maybe that’s enough to influence her social media followers, but I haven’t seen that she’s done anything that doesn’t relate to herself – then again, I don’t follow her.

  6. L4Frimaire says:

    Last thing she wants are a bunch of krazy Karens swarming her with racist BS if they think he’s dating her. I’d be all “ Leo who?” as well.

    • Coco says:

      Neelam has a boyfriend someone on here pointed out that her boyfriend posted pictures of them at party with Leo.

      The first time the media tried to links Leo and Neelam together at a “private dinner” that was actually group dinner and she with her boyfriend.

  7. Sunnee says:

    I believe she’s dating his childhood friend Ceopardo diLaprio. Lol

  8. Saschafrom76 says:

    This is the last article I’ll ever click on about his gross transactional relationships he’s no better than Weinstein and Epstein makes me sick. I don’t watch his movies for decades wish he’d just go entirely away lol barf so I’ll just ignore his stories🤣

  9. jferber says:

    Well, if they are dating, he’s increasing the age of his model friends by single digits–Gigi was 27 and this woman is 28. Progress?

  10. Dorianne says:

    Kudos to her for clearing THAT up. I just don’t get why these young women want to hang out with Leo. Maybe 20 years ago. Neelam is there with her significant other. But what about the others? At 48, does Leo still have that much clout? He’s past middle age. It just seems so ick. A commenter over at Daily Fail called Leo the 21st century’s Hugh Hefner. I don’t imagine that’s a compliment. Hef was the epitome of creepiness.
