The actor, 47, opted for a low-key look during the outing and donned a royal blue shirt for the outing, which he teamed with a pair of dark jeans.

Leonardo seemingly kept a low profile at the celebrity hotspot thanks to a black baseball cap, but was surrounded by a large group of pals as they returned in the early hours.

The Titanic star wore the top open at the neck which showcased a glimpse of his bare chest and simple silver necklace.

On the same trip Leo was pictured having a great time with pal Tobey Maguire on a boat to Le Club 55 in St Tropez.

Insiders close to DiCaprio claimed to the publication that he and Morrone had been growing apart recently.

The Revenant star, who is Camila’s senior by 22 years, was first introduced to Camila in 2008, when she was just 12.

His longtime friend Al Pacino, who had dated Camila’s mother Lucila Solá for years, made the introductions, and Leonardo remained friends with the family.

Leonardo and Camila officially got together sometime in 2017, following his breakup with model Nina Agdal just days before the Cannes Film Festival, though representatives for both initially denied that they were together.

The two raised their relationship’s profile the following year, when they attended Ellen DeGeneres’ birthday party together, and they were seen later in the year showing off PDA at Coachella.

Throughout 2022 the two were spotted being affectionate and DiCaprio was even seen taking the dogs that Camila had fostered on solo walks.

In June, the Wolf Of Wall Street star was pictured on a beach outing with his father and Al Pacino, whom Camila considers to be her stepfather, even after his split from her mother.

Now Camila appears to have joined the ranks of Leo’s ex-girlfriends, none of whom are known to have dated the actor past the age of 25, after her 25th birthday in June.
