Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid were seen cozying up to one another in New York in their first photos together since dating rumors began.

The pair were spotted locked in conversation while hanging out with friends at a party in SoHo.

The photos are the first time the two were spotted together since newly single DiCaprio allegedly "hooked up" with the model in recent months.

The actor made headline for continuing his infamous pattern of not dating women over the age of 25 by splitting from girlfriend Camila Morrone months after her 25th birthday.

But his rumored relationship with Hadid may break the mold.

Are Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid dating?

Reportedly, DiCaprio, 47, has been quietly seeing Hadid, 27, after ending his relationship with Morrone who he had been dating since January 2018. 

"Leo is definitely pursuing Gigi," a source tells PEOPLE.

Another source adds, "They've been seen hanging out with groups of people. It's only been a few weeks since the split. Since then, he's been hanging out with friends and family."

Another source told Us Weekly that, so far, feelings have not been reciprocated.

“Leo does have his sights set on Gigi, but she hasn’t shown an interest,” the source revealed. “They’re friends, but she doesn’t want to be romantic with [him] right now.”

Gigi Hadid and Leonardo DiCaprio were first linked earlier this summer.

"Leo and Gigi have hooked up a few times this summer,” a source told InTouch Weekly. “They have known each other for several years. They’re super attracted to each other. She is exactly his type: gorgeous, sexy but low-key with a one-of-the-guys attitude.”

The source continued, revealing that DiCaprio and Hadid are just "casual." 

"[It's] not a constant thing. But they have lots of mutual friends,” they added, however, another source noted that the two are just simply hanging out as close friends.

According to a July blind submission posted by Deux Moi the model and the "Great Gatsby" star "partying close together at The Ned (formerly known as The Nomad Hotel)," while in New York City.

While the rumors were never confirmed by Hadid or DiCaprio, the actor would have reportedly still been in his relationship with Morrone. 

Though, according to Entertain Times, a source claimed that DiCaprio had shown interest in Hadid while still in his relationship with the actress and model. 

“They’ve known each other for years. Of course, they were catching up and he was flirting… that’s who Leo is! He was definitely enamored by Gigi,” the source claimed, referring to Hadid and DiCaprio's rumored appearance at The Ned.

The source continued, alleging that the two have partied together in the past. Three years ago, Hadid and DiCaprio were spotted in Miami until 6 a.m., though they had been joined by other A-list celebrities, including Hadid's sister, Bella, and close friend Kendall Jenner.

While DiCaprio has been rumored to have "hooked up" with Hadid, there was also recent speculation that the "Inception" actor was allegedly seeing 22-year-old model Maria Beregova after the two were photographed together in St. Tropez.

The photos, which were captured in July 2022, showed DiCaprio leaving a nightclub in St. Tropez with a group of his friends, including fellow actor Tobey Maguire. 

According to the Daily Mail, DiCaprio and Beregova met while they were both in the French town after Beregova had flown in following her divorce from husband Ahmed Masoud Abdelhafid, 30, a Monaco-based businessman and fashion mogul.

As for Hadid, the model had split with boyfriend Zayn Malik back in October 2021 after dating for six years and welcoming their first child, daughter Khai, the previous month, following an altercation with Malik and Hadid's mother, Yolanda.
