Leonardo Di Caprio Throws Explosive Pre-Oscars Party At £9m LA Mansion
With an Oscars Best Actor nod last night, Leonardo DiCaprio spent the weekend preparing for one of his biggest ever tear-ups.
But as one of Hollywood’s most notorious party lovers, he did it in his trademark style.
The A-lister kept a low profile in the run-up to the big awards ceremony at LA’s Dolby Theatre.
He wore a baseball cap pulled down over his face as he turned up with model girlfriend Camilla Morrone to a pre-party thrown by super-agency WME.
But I can reveal Leo — who was Oscar-nominated for his lead role in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood — then quietly quit this sophisticated soiree in favour of a wilder do until 5am in nearby Beverly Hills.
It was thrown at a friend’s £9million mansion complete with under-ground night-club. Leo got on the booze with fellow ladies’ man Jamie Foxx and they were soon swarmed by models.
But the night descended into chaos as the home was overrun with mystery gate-crashers who had got in by scaling a nearby fence, and a heavy-duty security team was called in to bring the mayhem under control.
An insider told me: “Leo had tried to go incognito, in his usual black cap, and he headed straight for the underground club, which was very dimly lit.
“He was drinking and smoking with Jamie, who was with a huge crew and some hot models. Adam Sandler was there, too.
“It all started pretty chilled out but as the night went on, many of the guests were totally wasted on booze and weed and suddenly it was just chaos and security couldn’t keep control.
“Word had got round about the party being the place to be with so many big stars turning up and people were even trying to break in via a building site next door.
“Many of those partying didn’t even know whose house it was.”
Leo, who plays ageing TV star Rick Dalton in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, was competing for the Best Actor spoils against Antonio Banderas, Adam Driver, Joaquin Phoenix and Jonathan Pryce.
His girlfriend Camila, 23 years his junior, made a rare appearance without him at the Chanel And Charles Finch pre-awards bash.
The pair have been dating since 2017.
Despite his heavy night with Jamie Foxx, party king Leo found the energy to hit the town again late on Saturday at Fox Studios’ annual Night Before bash.
Movie awards aside, Leo sounds like he’s winning almost every night to me.
