A tabloid story claiming Leonardo DiCaprio snubbed Justin Bieber in a Cannes club during the film festival last month is doing the rounds, partly because it’s the kind of item many hope is true and mostly because it’s DiCaprio and Bieber.
Justin Bieber snubbed by Hollywood actor cum appalling dancer Leonardo DiCaprio at a Cannes nightclub?
Star magazine is currently claiming DiCaprio rebuffed Bieber at the Gotha Club as the two stars partied separately during the Film Festival last month.
It’s worth mentioning Star’s sourcing in their story – the magazine published 19 false rumors in March alone – is described as “sketchy” by Esquire.
There’s another reason why the story is interesting.
Apart from the fact that it may not be true, what’s missing from most if not all reports on this story is a recap on DiCaprio’s seedy conduct at Gotha when he was photographed grinding on three different women, according to multiple outlets.
As previously reported, both Leo and Justin arrived separately and partied at Gotha on May 19, the same night rapper Rick “Bawse” Ross was in the house to perform.

During the evening Bieber joined Ross onstage.
The 20-year-old was later snapped partying shirtless and – at one point – rapped to Tupac’s “Dear Mama” before reportedly hooking up with Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima.
So, not a bad night.

Not according to Star:
A source purportedly recalled “Justin was strutting his stuff all over the club, walking around shirtless and scoping out chicks. But when he heard Leo was there, he had his bodyguard muscle a path to where Leo was sitting,”
Magazine editorial continues:
“Hoping to party with the Wolf of Wall Street star — and the bevy of girls in his VIP area — the Biebs sent his goon to ask permission.’Justin was nodding and smiling in Leo’s direction, but Leo just shook his head no and waved him off,’ the alleged source added.”
“‘He thinks Justin’s a little twit. Leo doesn’t want or need photo ops with publicity-hungry, manufactured pop stars.’”
Meanwhile Leonardo — who may or may not have snubbed Bieber — was pretty busy doing this and probably wasn’t interested in any male bonding that night, Bieber or otherwise.

Despite recent reports that the Oscar-nominated actor and supposed girlfriend, model Toni Garrn were moving in together, the only thing Leo moved in on at Gotha was at least three women, the New York Daily News reports.
From photos, Leo can be seen very much up in the personal space of married model Katie Cleary, 32, a former America’s Next Top Model contestant.
The 39-year-old went on to hit on at least three other women in the club. All in front of each other. While looking like a Shameless extra.
And things got even messier for Leo.
In a video showing DiCaprio wandering around in the parking lot just after he left Gotha, he got into a van where a drunk woman — who looked like she needed to vomit — had to be let out.
We’ll leave it readers to decide if DiCaprio really snubbed Bieber. But from the look of it all, Leo was intent on skanking out not hanging out that night.
