After dating for about a year, Leonardo DiCaprio and model Nina Agdal have split up, People reported on Thursday. "They broke up four days ago," a source close to the couple told Bustle. "But they remain friends. It was amicable."
I personally think it’s good to hear that the two are still cordial, and that the breakup didn’t ruin their friendship. Long before their relationship became romantic, DiCaprio and Agdal were reportedly spotted way back in 2014 at the same Super Bowl party, according to the Daily Mail. At the time, Agdal was dating The Wanted's Max George, and DiCaprio was rumored to be going out with model Toni Garrn.
A year or so later in 2015, Agdal told Cosmopolitan that DiCaprio had never hit on her when she was asked at a Sports Illustrated event. "Of course I've met him, but Leonardo just goes out with the same group of people as everybody," Agdal said. "So I hate that people, like, start stirring stuff up, because he's just in the same area. That happens a lot. But that's gossip, right?"
Cut to 2016, DiCaprio and Agdal were spotted at the Cannes Film Festival, according to The Sun. Then, a few months later the two were photographed kissing on a beach in Malibu.
At first, sources claimed that DiCaprio and Agdal were keeping things "super casual," according to Us Weekly. However, as weeks turned into months, and months turned into almost a year, it was starting to seem like DiCaprio and Agdal were in it for the long haul.
It's a bit disappointing (as it always is with celebrity couples you follow) to hear that DiCaprio and Agdal have broken up. Thankfully things are amicable, and who knows, perhaps this breakup will only be temporary. I know from experience that sometimes not being with someone can make you miss what you had, and see things from a totally different perspective. Either way, here's wishing both DiCaprio and Agdal both health and happiness in their newly single lives.
