Is Gisele Bundchen stepping out on Leonardo DiCaprio?
The Brazilian model was spotted at a party in Rio, smooching with a model named Andre Rezende, according to a source.
“It was at a party thrown by Marian Ximenes, a Brazilian actress, and her boyfriend, filmmaker Pedro Buarque,” notes the source. “She was there dancing until 5 a.m. The buzz is that they were canoodling and kissing.”
DiCaprio’s spokesman was dismissive of the story, but says he doesn’t comment on the star’s personal life, and Gisele’s rep says she knows nothing of Rezende, and that DiCaprio and Bundchen are still a couple.
Moon over Washington
One of the deep pocketed-Bush fans helping foot the $40 million tab for George W.’s inauguration is Reverend Sun Myung Moon. The controversial head of the Unification Church — whose followers are sometimes derisively called “Moonies” — reportedly funneled $250,000 towards the lavish bash.
“The $250,000 cash contribution, which represents the limit set for such gifts, comes from the Moon-controlled Washington Television Center,” according to CultNews.com. “The Bushes do have a long-standing and fruitful relationship with Rev. Moon, which is why the South Korean religious leader makes it a point to attend their inaugurations and he can count on good seats.”
“Don’t be surprised if George W. Bush pumps out a last-minute pardon for Rev. Moon on his tax-fraud conviction just before leaving the White House,” CultNews’s Rick Ross tells The Scoop. “After all, Reverend Moon has been very good to the Bush family and he may think they owe him one.”
Notes from all over
Beyoncé Knowles wants people to know that she is not jealous that Angelina Jolie topped Esquire magazine’s sexiest lady list. “There was this big thing in a magazine saying I was mad at Angelina Jolie because she came number one in a sexiest-female poll,” Knowles said, reports the Calgary Sun. “I’m not mad that I’m number five. I’m mad I’m listed at all. Every woman is sexy because she can give birth to a baby. That’s sexy in itself.” . . . Jude Law is planning to marry fiancée Sienna Miller in Fiji, according to U.K. reports. . . . Nicole Kidman has a mortal fear of butterflies, reports World Entertainment News Network. “Sometimes when I would come home from school the biggest butterfly or moth you’d ever seen would be just sitting on our front gate. I would climb over the fence, crawl around to the side of the house — anything to avoid having to go through the front gate,” Kidman reportedly said. “I jump out of planes, I could be covered in cockroaches, I do all sorts of things, but I just don’t like the feel of butterflies’ bodies.”
