A new report claiming Margot Robbieâ€™s husband Tom Ackerley fears Leonardo DiCaprio â€śis out to steal his wifeâ€ť is completely false. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. Weâ€™re told itâ€™s total nonsense.
Robbie and DiCaprio, who played a married couple in 2012â€™s The Wolf of Wall Street, are expected to team up again for Quentin Tarantinoâ€™s new movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. According to New Idea, the reunion is causing major tensions between the actress and her husband, whoâ€™s supposedly very jealous of the movie star.
A so-called â€śsourceâ€ť tells the magazine that Ackerley â€śis particularly wary of Leo given heâ€™s such a ladiesâ€™ man and knowing his reputation.â€ť As the story goes, Robbie is begging her husband â€śto understand that work has to come first and she will always remain professional at all times,â€ť but the assistant director is â€śconvinced Leo is out to steal his wife.â€ť
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who tells us on the condition of anonymity that the outletâ€™s article is fabricated. In fact, Robbie has debunked past rumors about her and DiCaprio having any sort of romantic connection. â€śWeâ€™re friends. Those rumors were inevitable, but thereâ€™s no truth to them,â€ť she told Vogue Australia.
In a subsequent interview with People, Robbie described DiCaprio as a â€śwonderful big brother,â€ť but further noted there were no sparks between them on the set of The Wolf of Wall Street. The actress even joked that her friends got â€śupsetâ€ť when she told them â€śthere werenâ€™t any fireworksâ€ť between her and the movie star. Instead, Robbie says DiCaprio â€śtook me under his wing and always looked out for me,â€ť so thereâ€™s no reason to believe heâ€™d try to pursue her all these years later. And given Robbieâ€™s own comments, it doesnâ€™t make sense to allege her husband is concerned about them being co-stars for a second time. Ackerley already knows he has nothing to worry about.
Additionally, E! recently published an article detailing Robbie and Ackerleyâ€™s strong marriage. An insider told the site that the actressâ€™s husband â€śis very supportive of her.â€ť As Robbie herself stated, itâ€™s â€śinevitableâ€ť that the tabloids would create a nonexistent romance between her and DiCaprio. New Idea is attempting to do so once again now that the former colleges are set to reunite. Thereâ€™s just still no merit to it.
