The 'Titanic' actor sued Opps Magazine in June for allegeing he's having a baby with Rihanna in their May issue
A French court has ruled in favor of DiCaprio and ordered the magazine to pay 8,000 Euros (approximately $8,800) in damages and legal fees. The judge also ordered the magazine to note in a subsequent issue that DiCaprio prevailed in court.
Back in June, Dicaprio filed a lawsuit against Oops for it's May 13 edition, which featured the headline (translated as), 'Rihanna Pregnant With Leonardo’s Baby: He Doesn’t Want The Baby.' In his legal docs, the actor stated that not only is he not having a baby with Rihanna but they are not even dating.
The owner of Oops, Frederic Truskolaski and a defendant in the lawsuit later admitted that: ''We didn’t know'' if Rihanna was pregnant, adding that, ''We thought she might be. We were not sure, of course.''
Unfortunately, the French court found that Oops violated the country’s strict right to privacy laws by publishing information about DiCaprio’s personal life and using two paparazzi pictures of him on the street.
''We were totally expecting this decision, since in France when any magazine speaks about a celebrity’s private life the magazine is automatically condemned,'' Truskolaski tells Gossip Cop.
Truskolaski adds that the actor, who's known for dating much younger models, is ''a pervert'' and suspects DiCaprio’s lawsuit was based on a ''racial issue.'' Plus, ''DiCaprio almost systematically goes out with Aryan-type girls, always blonde hair,” further alleging without any sound basis, “He could not stand the fact that our magazine was saying he was having a baby with a black girl.''
