Leonardo DiCaprio has filed a lawsuit against a French publication that claimed Rihanna was pregnant with his child.
The Wolf of Wall Street star is suing Oops! magazine after they claimed the actor wasn’t taking responsibility for the child they reported Rihanna was carrying.
The story claimed Leo did not recognise the child as his own but the actor says the story was completely fabricated.
Leonardo’s legal team have filed the suit in French courts and have demanded the magazine retracts the story which he said is “pure fantasy”.
The actor plans to sue for €18,000 in damages and legal fees, which is the maximum amount allowed by French law.
Showbiz website Gossip Cop claims the actor was made aware of the story while in France for the Cannes International Film Festival.
The actor also claims that photographs published by the magazine are strictly against France’s privacy legislation.
The case is set to be heard in Paris on June 16.
It may seem strange, having watched Leonardo DiCaprio grow up on the big screen, but the actor does not really appear to have aged at all. Having just reached his 40th birthday, DiCaprio remains (almost) as youthful as he was when he starred in Titanic, a film that was shot when he was 22.
