DiCaprio was spotted laughing uproariously when Lady Gaga won the Globe for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel, and made an even more ridiculous face when she “accidentally” bumped into his chair on the way up to the podium to accept her award.
When asked about the face after he won his own award for his role in The Revenant, he told Entertainment Tonight, “I just didn’t know what was passing me — that’s all!”
But his explanation does not hold water, according to one insider.
“Leonardo was talking shit about her even before the show started because he did not think she deserved to be nominated,” the source told Radar Online. “It got back to her obviously.
“She would have ignored it, but when her name was announced as the winner, Leo was laughing so loud that people far away from his table heard it. He was making a total scene.
“Gaga was not about to let him steal her moment and she wanted to shut him up,” the source added. “She sure did.”
And Gaga’s fiancé, Taylor Kinney, took it up with DiCaprio, too.
Another insider explained, “Taylor was not going to let anyone make fun of his future wife, even if they are an A-list actor. It was her moment to shine and she worked very hard for that award.”
“He basically told him in a non-confrontational sort of way that he should apologize to her because it was flat out rude and extremely unprofessional.”
Gaga has not commented on the feud, preferring to focus solely on her accomplishment.
