Leonardo DiCaprio Does the World Cup in StyleBy: Pam Wright - June 16, 2014
Guess it’s one of those “when art imitates life” kind of things.
DiCaprio and more than 20 friends are hanging out on the 482-foot Topaz — worth an estimated $679 million — while staying in Brazil for the soccer tournament.
The fifth largest yacht in the world is owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emitates and owner of professional soccer club Manchester City FC.
On Thursday, the boat was anchored in Rio de Janeiro while The Wolf of Wall Street actor took in the first game of this year’s cup, a 3-1 victory by hosts Brazil in Sao Paulo, wearing a Brazilian scarf around his neck.
After the match, the group headed to Buzios, a picturesque town in Rio de Janeiro state.
Accompanied by two young women, DiCaprio walked along the beachfront and did a little shopping.
It is unclear whether DiCaprio and his friends have borrowed the yacht from Sheikh Mansour or if they are renting it.
The 43-year-old Sheikh is a member of the royal family of Abu Dhabi and doesn’t exactly need the money. It is estimated his net worth is around $4.9 billion and his family has a fortune of $153 billion.
Sheikh Mansour is the half-brother of the current president of the UAE and has two wives and five children.
