Leonardo DiCaprio, Nina Agdal involved in car accident.
The Revenant actor Leonardo DiCaprio and his model girlfriend Nina Agdal were reportedly involved in a car crash. The 41-year-old Oscar-winning actor was in the car with Agdal when the accident happened on Saturday afternoon in East Hampton Village, New York, according to The Indian Express.
A Mini Cooper hit the back of their car. An ambulance was called to the scene 'as a precaution,' but it was just a minor fender bender.
'Leo and Nina got rear-ended, but everyone is doing fine. It was Leo’s friend’s car,' a source said.
DiCaprio was supposed to host Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton fundraiser scheduled for Tuesday in Los Angeles, but now he won’t due to a scheduling conflict.
The move came as 41-year-old star has been linked to a USD 3 billion Malaysian embezzlement scandal.
His rep Shawn Sachs has, however, maintained the scheduling conflict forced the actor to bow out, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
An unidentified source close to the event has claimed the reason DiCaprio backed out was work-related, that his current project will keep him in New York until Wednesday.
The actor is taking his documentary 'The Turning Point' to the Toronto Film Festival in September. He is not currently filming a movie as an actor.
Josh Schwerin, a spokesperson with the Clinton campaign, said any suggestion that the scandal is connected to DiCaprio dropping out 'is completely false. It’s not at all true.'
'If we could have had the event at his home, we would have loved to. He was gracious enough to find us a new host.
We hope to do something with him in the future,' Schwerin said.However celebrity couple Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel eventually step in to host the event at their own house.
