Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has won a lawsuit against the French magazine which falsely reported of pop singer Rihanna being pregnant with Leo’s child. Earlier this year, there were speculations about something brewing between the Wolf Of Wall Street star and Rihanna.
However, in an issue published by the French magazine, the cover story “Rihanna pregnant with Leonardo’s baby: He doesn’t want the baby” made Leo furious. According to the IANS report, DiCaprio has successfully sued the magazine and they’ve been ordered to pay around $8,800 in damages and legal fees.
The owner of the magazine, Frederic Truskolaski, reportedly said they didn’t know if Rihanna was pregnant. “We thought she might be. We were not sure, of course,” he admitted.
The actor had originally sued the magazine for 18,000 euros in damages and attorney fees, which is said to be the maximum allowed under the French law.
DiCaprio reportedly wasn’t just suing because of the story, but also the use of images of him which is said to be against France’s privacy laws.
