Laura Whitmore's ex-boyfriend Rory Williams says the pair had already split by the time those Leonardo DiCaprio rumours surfaced after the BAFTAs.
The Sunset Sons frontman, who performed in Dublin on Tuesday night, broke his silence about his split with the Irish tv presenter, saying they had quietly parted ways in February. Whitmore, (30) who was hosting the BAFTAs red carpet for their YouTube channel, spent the night partying with the Oscar-winning actor.
Leo (41) reportedly partied the night away with the Bray native and pals in his hotel suite, including supermodel Lily Donaldson, in celebrations that went on until 5am. But Rory explained that the couple had already split, making it "complicated" when he was still linked to the popular tv star after the red carpet event.
"People thought we were still together when the story broke," he told the Irish Daily Mirror. "It made it a bit more comlicated. I had been out the night before and got really drink. I woke up the next morning hungover, I looked at my phone and had about 50 messages telling me about Leo, I was like 'What the f*** is going on?'"
"I'm a bit fan of the dude, so our pictures being put next to each other was very surreal. It's pretty f***ed up. I take it with a pinch of salt."
At the time, it was reported that DiCaprio had first spotted Whitmore at the amfAR gala in New York and "made a beeline for her" when he saw her again at the BAFTAs.
Meanwhile, Laura is reportedly dating former Game of Thrones star Richard Madden for the last number of weeks. "They met at the BRITS last month, and they spent the entire weekend after that together,” a source told heat magazine.
“Since then, they’ve hung out almost every day. Laura thinks it could be something really special. They tried to keep it low-key for as long as they could, but she’s really happy.”
