Leonardo DiCaprio Brushes Off Bear Rape Controversy And Parties With Lenny Kravitz, Lupe Fiasco, Everyone Else

Oscar or no Oscar, every dude under the age of 50 is living vicariously through Leo. Unless your name is Tom Brady, who wards off scandal like he has the backing of the Illuminati, the New World Order, and SEAL Team Six at all times, you read DiCaprio party stories and just shake your head and smile. It’s beyond the point of jealousy. Sometimes, you just have to tip your cap to a guy.

Well, our boy is at it again, this time in the lead up to Art Basel Miami, an art fair for the elite, by the elite, that I’m not going to go in to detail on. Just know that it’s one of those deals where you’re probably considered peasant scum trash if you used a NetJets membership to get there rather than your own private jet. Leo, who’s in Miami working on an upcoming documentary, has had himself an above average last few days according to Page Six.

He hit the town Sunday at Scarpetta with LIV nightclub impresario David Grutman.

Next, on Monday, he was at restaurant Milos with a group that included Kravitz — who’s mounting a photo exhibition called “Flash” during Art Basel as one of many musicians this year with art shows — and Time Warner’s biggest shareholder, Vivi Nevo.

The party then headed to the grand opening of Chris Paciello’s latest nightclub, Rockwell, where “Transformers” director Michael Bay, Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, Grutman and Syracuse and NBA star-turned-DJ Rony Seikaly were also partying.

Alright, if you had the former Heat great, Rony Seikaly, in your office “Who Will Party With Leo?” pool, hats off to you. I had no idea he was doing club gigs now, but 6 years in Miami probably changes a man. Also, Michael Bay? That’s just explosive. But it didn’t end there because Leo and the ageless wonder, Lenny Kravitz, poured gasoline on the fire.

Spies said Kravitz and DiCaprio, seated at adjoining tables, were sent eight bottles of Dom Pérignon. But throughout, “Leo kept a low profile, wearing a hat and enjoying his time with his friends. It looked like it was just a guys’ night out before Art Basel.” The new spot’s run by Paciello — previously of South Beach clubs Liquid and Story — with brother Keith Paciello and Mio Danilovic.

At 2 a.m., rapper Lupe Fiasco performed, and “Leo and his crew of friends were singing along with Lupe the entire time.” Leo partied till 3:30 a.m., while Kravitz called it a night at 2:45 a.m.

From now on when I’m wearing a hat, drinking Dom, and butchering Lupe lyrics, I’m telling people that I’m just keeping a low profile. The balls on this guy. Best part? According to Page Six, he’s jetting out of town the day Art Basel starts. Such a power move to max-out at the pregame and bail on the main event. Vintage Leo.

Big few days, Leo. There’s Oscar buzz for your performance in “The Revenant”, and the movie got all kinds of free pub via Matt Drudge and the great bear rape controversy of 2015.

And you’re still dating Kelly Rohrbach. Way to finish Q4 strong.
