Leonardo DiCaprio has denied the rumours that he and Maya Jama are 'secretly dating'.
The rumour-mill first started turning when the pair were previously spotted meeting up in London, Paris and New York City - with many believing that they were talking their budding romance international.
However, the A-lister has since confirmed the status of his relationship with the Love Island host.
Maya and Leo first made headlines together when they were papped partying together two nights in a row in London over the Bafta weekend in February and then again in New York, when they both found themselves in the Big Apple for work.
And, just last month, the duo were seen with a bigger group leaving the Le Piaf club in Paris.
Sounds like some pretty memorable first dates if you ask me - definitely a whole lot more different than the typical: "Wanna get drinks?"
A source revealed to The Sun that the two speak regularly and that they have, in fact, been on a handful of romantic outings.
They said: "Maya and Leo are in regular contact and have been on a string of dates.
"They have both recently come out of long-term relationships so neither of them are rushing into anything — they are having fun and seeing how it goes."
The source continued: "They live in different countries and Maya has had a long distance relationship before and knows it’s tough, so they are taking things a day at a time.
"Leo has certainly been wooing her though, he loves spending time with her."
I'm sure he has.
But a rep for Leo has since told the Mail Online that the rumours about him and Maya dating were not true.
This, of course, isn't the first time the 'Titanic' star's love life has been in the spotlight.
Last summer, Leo split up with his girlfriend of over five years, Camila Morrone who he had a staggering 22-year age gap with.
He's been previously called out for dating women much younger than him, with Katherine Ryan dubbing him 'gross', 'weird' and downright 'creepy'.
The news follows Maya calling off her engagement with to Australian basketball player Ben Simmons, 26, after just one year together.
Before that, the radio DJ had a famous four-year relationship with the rapper 'Shut Up' rapper Stormzy, 29, which came to an end in 2019.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Maya explained how age had a pretty big part to play in their break-up.
She told the outlet: "We were so young when we met, just beginning our careers. I don't think either of us knew it was going to be such a big thing."
While the dating rumours have been denied, it's clearly not stopped fans from jumping to their own conclusions about the Hollywood legend and the British presenter.
