Actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Sports Illustrated supermodel Bar Refaeli have reportedly split after dating for 5 years.
The couple began dating in 2006 and broke up for 6 months in 2009. The couple got back together the following year and Refaeli later said she was grateful for the break. Refaeli said she “grew up” during that time apart and learned not to fear being alone.
“It was a half year for which I am very grateful,” Refaeli said in March 2010. “I needed it. I came to understand a lot of things about myself.”
Because DiCaprio, 36, and Refaeli, 25, have broken up before, reconciliation is not being ruled out.
“They could be back together next week,” a source says.
Another source says the split was amicable: “They’re still friends and they are still talking. They just grew apart and went their separate ways.”
