Victoria’s Secret models seek restraining order against Leonardo DiCaprio
MANHATTAN - On Wednesday, a lawyer for Victoria's Secret's "Angels" filed papers in New York District Court seeking a restraining order against Leonardo DiCaprio, "an actor who was popular 25 years ago and refuses to leave my clients alone," according to court filings.
Over the last 20 years, DiCaprio has stalked at least ten Victoria's Secret models, including Nina Agdal, Bridget Hall, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigova, Bar Refaeli, Anna Vyalitsyna, Kelly Rohrbach, Toni Garrn, Erin Heatherton, and Gisele Bundchen, according to court papers.
As DiCaprio has aged, the lingerie models he targets have gotten younger.
"His boyish obsession with Victoria's Secret models was weird when DiCaprio was in his 20s. Now that he's in his forties, it's creepy. Though my clients have complained about DiCaprio's unwanted advances, this rapidly-aging AARP member continues to insert himself into young women with whom he has no legitimate business," she said. "He thinks he's Benjamin Button, and my clients are sick of it."
Victoria's Secret's attorney outlined a disturbing pattern dating back to the 1990s, whereby every year, DiCaprio, would order "approximately 5,600 copies of the Victoria's Secret catalogue then attempts to buy the women he sees featured in it. Not the bras, but the women," she clarified.
Rubin said DiCaprio is particularly "excited by buy-one, get-one-free offers."
As a heterosexual white man, DiCaprio's reputation as a disgusting, entitled, and modelizing infatuate was cemented in Nancy Jo Sales' seminal 1997 NYMag profile, "Leo, Prince of the City," which details DiCaprio and his "Pussy Posse," a sexist cabal with chimpanze-like mating strategies. Sales writes that a New York magazine photographer first snuck "Leo and his boys, then uninvited, into a Victoria's Secret event" in 1996.
"Since that fateful day, for more than two decades, when it comes to protecting the wider female population from Leonardo DiCaprio's ancient, deeply objectionable penis, Victoria's Secret models have shouldered more than their fair share of the burden - with Rihanna and Blake Lively offering the briefest of respites. Enough is enough," she said. "I ask the court to intervene."
Judge Pamela Spacer granted the restraining order, which prohibits DiCaprio from coming within 90-feet of any Victoria's Secret store, fashion show, party, or vagina and all models younger than 36.
