Leonardo DiCaprio enjoyed a late night at the U.S. Open tennis tournament on Wednesday (03Sep14) when he chose to stay up to watch Novak Djokovic defeat a weary Andy Murray. The bearded movie star sat in a luxury box to watch the match of the day at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York.
DiCaprio was joined by his mum Irmelin.
The three-hour-plus match ended after 1am local time and now number one seed Djokovic will play Japanese tennis sensation Kei Nishikori in the semi-finals this weekend (06-07Sep14).
Leonardo DiCaprio has played matchmaker to help his beloved mother find love again. Irmelin Indenbirken, who divorced the actor's dad George when he was a baby, joined her son at an Independence Day (04Jul13) party hosted by Madonna's manager Guy Oseary in Malibu, California, where she showed off her beau of one year, a suitor named David, and it appears she has the Titanic star to thank for the new man in her life.
A guest who asked David about his romance with Indenbirken tells the New York Post's Page Six column, "He said Leo and his (own) daughter, the wife of a Black Keys band member, set them up on a blind date, and they've been together ever since."
The source adds, "The two danced next to Leo... and partied away until the wee hours."
The holiday bash was a double date for the mother and son - DiCaprio was joined by his new girlfriend, Victoria's Secret model Toni Garrn, who he has been dating since May (13).
Other guests at Oseary's lavish party included Charlize Theron, Owen Wilson, Mel Gibson, Woody Harrelson and George Clooney's girlfriend, Stacy Kiebler.
"My mother is the centre of my life. To have a woman like that in your life, who is strong, who'll be honest with you about who you are, that's something I treasure. And it's something I look for in a woman." Leonardo DiCaprio has a close relationship with his mother Irmelin.
Apparently not all rumors are true - go figure. It had been circulating the Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio had called it quits earlier this week. For those of you who haven't heard the story and have been living under a rock this week, supposedly Blake met Leo's mother, Irmelin, and it didn't go very well. She seemed less than thrilled with the actress' seemingly stuck-up personality and told her son to dump her immediately because mama knows best. Irmelin was reported stating the Gossip Girl actress was "too far up herself for him," which is just a round-about way of saying Blake's a conceited brat that can't talk about anything but herself. Ouch. True, but ouch.
This is one piece of gossip that certainly didn't work in this girl's favor -- but luckily for Blake, the rumors are false! The duo is still seeing each other despite what the recent tabloid rumors are claiming. A source close to the couple confirmed that Blake and Leo are still together and going strong (whether Momma DiCaprio likes it or not). Sorry ladies, it looks like this hot hunk is still off the market after all.

The British tabloid Now is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio dumped Blake Lively because his mother didn't like her. The article quotes numerous sources, who say things like "Blake's a total mess," "She tried hard to impress Leo's mum when they met but Irmelin couldn't stand her," "Blake was nervous so she did talk a lot," and "But his mum says all she did was talk about Gossip Girl and how she's a Chanel model." So essentially, it sounds like Blake tried too hard to impress "mum" Irmelin and came across sounding extremely conceited. I guess now all we can do is wait for evidence to the contrary. - Now

Fernando Flores, one of Britney Spears' former bodyguards is suing her for harassment and for some reason he's deemed it necessary to tell the media how disgustingly unhygienic she is. In papers Flores filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court allege Britney continuously exposed herself to him and made sexual advances towards him. One of the documents reads, "The sexual advances were unwanted for a variety of reasons. Spears had obnoxious habits, such as chain-smoking, making her smell continually of stale tobacco. She broke wind or picked her nose unselfconsciously and unapologetically and she was constantly and gratuitously loud and profane. She did not bathe for days, did not use deodorant, did not brush her teeth, did not fix her hair, did not wear shoes or socks." So some judge somewhere is going to have to rule whether Britney is disgusting or not? That's a real job? - Toronto Sun
The actor is currently at Germany's Berlin International Film Festival, where he's showcasing his latest movie Shutter Island, accompanied by family matriarch Irmelin Indenbirken and his on-off girlfriend Bar Refaeli.
And DiCaprio, 35, insists he's proud of his close relationship with his mother.
He says, "She just likes to come with me on occasions like this. And when I have the opportunity to take someone with me, I'll do her the favour. Especially Berlin - she's got relatives here and loves travelling through Europe. She loves taking part in my life.
"You can call me a mummy's boy, but I think it's cool to have her with me."
