Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Releases Statement on Involvement in Malaysian Corruption Scandal

A spokesperson for Leonardo DiCaprio‘s foundation, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, has released a statement regarding the organization’s link to a multibillion dollar Malaysian corruption scandal.

“Several months ago in July, Mr. DiCaprio first learned through press reports of the government’s civil action against some of the parties involved in the making of The Wolf of Wall Street. He immediately had his representatives reach out to the Department of Justice to determine whether he or his foundation, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF), ever received any gifts or charitable donations directly or indirectly related to these parties, and if so, to return those gifts or donations as soon as possible. All contact was initiated by Mr DiCaprio and LDF,” the statement read (via Deadline).

Leonardo‘s foundation is said to have received millions in donations from the 1MDB Malaysian sovereign wealth fund. The money from that fund was laundered in the States.

In addition, the statement said that Leonardo has remained silent on the matter “out of respect for its ongoing investigation, which has touched many charities, hospitals and individuals, who may have been unwitting recipients of funds now in question.”

    Regardless of his “involvement”, he will remain unscathed. Bet on it.

    Repost my answer to @Revengefan0101
    since this issue seems forbidden on the other channel.

    Hi! She was one of the “wolves” she has a wolf tattoo. I believe they were just friends.They have only one picture together.
    I have no idea where this rumor came from. Crazy 90s.

    They could have hooked up.

  • moviebuff

    Is that Sarah Gilbert?

  • Guest

    Quincy Jones daughter.

  • bee

    I don’t think so.

  • Guest

    Why . She’s pretty.

  • bee

    P*ssy Posse was in full swing in the 90s, and Leo’s obsession with blondes models as well.

  • Guest

    Womanizer loves beautiful women. Doesn’t matter blonde or not.. Leonardo been with women of other races.

  • bee

    This man is openly dating blond models for over 20 years. All we hear about another kind of girl is rumor without evidence

  • Guest

    Doesn’t mean they didn’t hook up on the down low. . Womanizer loves beautiful women. Don’t mean dating.

  • Guest

    Agree.

  • bee

    Beauty is a concept. What is beautiful to one may be ugly to another. And if I see Leo choosing the same type of woman again and again, it’s obvious what he likes. Following the logic, Kidada is not pretty towards his eyes. Dating or hook up the boy has a type. JMO

  • Guest

    Like I said on the down low not openly dating, big difference.

  • LOL Blue

    I love you Mr. Bitter :) :)

  • bee

    Why hide? Kidada is not pretty towards his eyes. So why sleep with her?

    Because that is what womenizer does.

  • bee

    I only hear about two girls who are (or were) part of this group. Sara Gilbert (who is a lesbian) and Kidada who often go out with the group. (In the 90′s.) For me the wolves see them as “boys”

    reference 28 sept 1998 for kidada jones

  • Shadow

    What about the gfs of the wolves, is it suggested that they are passed around among each other?

  • Shadow

    He has been w brunette s too,there are pics maybe not as many s blonde but rhianna. Chelsy. Miranda Kerr, Katie clearly, Caroline the Australian. Model the list goes on…

  • bee

    Yes, “brunettes”( hair only)
    but still models and with green/blue eyes as Caroline Austin, Chelsey Weimar, Georgia Fowler . Yes, Katie cleary (I remember ) I think she fits in the same rank as Denise Schaefer fits. And I’m not sure if it’s a good category. Miranda Kerr? It’s more like a rumor. About Rihanna, I think the same as Kidada Jones.

    Tobey will gain a reintegration party. I think it’s like a divorce party.

  • Dream Girl

    Is Tobey a part of the wolf pack already? Does he have the wolf necklace?

  • also…
  • bee

    Of course he’s girl. He is one of the oldest members. I bet the necklace will return.

  • bee

    He looks thirsty . Let’s hear more things like “I danced with Spiderman” lol. About the club, it proves that even if we have no sightings … Leo is still thereπŸ˜•

  • Dream Girl

    He needs to join gamblers anonymous or some kind of rehab for that, its a bad addiction for him and he needs some kind of intervention and a support system. I hope he recovers and finds the right path in life.

  • Dream Girl

    He gonna need rehab soon.

  • moviebuff

    πŸ˜’ Yeah. Let’s give credit to the NY Post for referring to Leo’s latest “gal pal”. That’s fair. Not “GF” not a fling…a pal that’s a gal.

  • moviebuff
