Is Leonardo DiCaprio Engaged To Kelly Rohrbach? Let's Not Rush Things, People
Despite tabloid rumors to the contrary, it looks like Leonardo DiCaprio is not engaged to Kelly Rohrbach, his girlfriend of four months. Of course, this news will either leave you feeling deliriously happy (yes! I still have a chance!) or devastatingly sad (I just want him to find true love!), but let's just take it for what it is: two people enjoying the beginnings of a fairly new relationship plagued by supermarket tabloid reports that they're already set to make a lifelong commitment to one another. And if there is one lesson to be learned from Taylor Swift's "Out of the Woods" or "I Know Places" (truly, the greatest manifestos of all celebrity relationships) it's that unfounded rumors like these can take the fire out of a relationship before it even really has the chance to begin. To put it simply? Let's not rush it.
The world began freaking out that long-time bachelor, short-time Titanic survivor DiCaprio was officially off the market thanks to an OK! Magazine insider who described, in detail, how the actor popped the question to the model.
"It wasn’t planned. It just happened," the source said of the engagement, which allegedly took place at an Italian restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. "They were enjoying a bottle of red wine and engrossed in conversation as usual — it's pretty obvious that they’re in love from the way they’re always touching and smiling."
When the Wolf of Wall Street star revealed he "wanted to spend the rest of his life with her," the model was "shocked," the insider claimed, adding that once "Leo convinced her that he meant it," Rohrbach "agreed with a kiss." This would be cool and all, except for the fact that OK! is notorious for publishing untrue stories and GossipCop — known for shutting down fake OK! rumors — allegedly got the real story from a DiCaprio source. One who claims that the engagement rumor, is, in a word, "garbage."
I mean, I get it. I have literally no relationship with the actor except for the time he filmed part of Wolf of Wall Street in my hometown and DiCaprio took a selfie of us and was the nicest guy ever and my life was made, but of course I still want the guy to settle down and be happy — if that's what he wants. But let's not get ahead of ourselves and throw the actor and his girlfriend of four months into a marriage right away. OK, OK?! Whether or not DiCaprio and Rohrbach will ever tie the knot, it's important that they, like any couple — especially any couple navigating the tricky spotlight of fame — live in the moment and not be bogged down by rumors urging them to speed up their relationship. It's a little foolhardy, to be honest.
And at the end of the day, wouldn't the world like to hold onto single Leonardo DiCaprio for that much longer? Because, just like Rose at the end of Titanic, we'll never let go, Jack. *throws Heart of the Ocean into the water*
