Idol threat: Jeff Bezos jokes with Leonardo DiCaprio over video of actor meeting billionaire’s girlfriend
Jeff Bezos may be chasing the stars with his Blue Origin space venture, but he needs to keep an eye on the stars of the celebrity variety here on Earth.
The billionaire Amazon founder had some fun on Twitter Monday morning, lobbing a playful threat at actor Leonardo DiCaprio after the two were at the same Los Angeles event over the weekend.
Video of DiCaprio meeting Bezos’ girlfriend Lauren Sanchez went viral after she was seen brushing up against the actor and smiling at whatever he was saying, while Bezos looked on. The three were among attendees at the LACMA Art+Film Gala in L.A. on Saturday.
The video made the rounds on Twitter and the internet responded with comments such as, “Leo is about to lose his Prime membership.”
On Monday, Bezos shared a buff photo of himself standing behind a sign warning of a steep cliff drop. He invited DiCaprio to come closer.
