Model linked to Leonardo DiCaprio denies romance

Leonardo DiCaprio's rumored new love interest has played down reports they are a hot new item.

The Titanic hunk sparked reports he had a new lady in his life after he was snapped with a tall blonde on the balcony of an apartment in Miami, Florida this week (begs04Feb13).

The beauty has since been identified as model and Miss Universe Kosovo 2011 Aferdita Dreshaj - but she insists her relationship with DiCaprio is purely platonic.

She tells Eonline.com, "We were all just hanging out as friends."

DiCaprio is known for his penchant for models - he previously dated Brazilian stunner Gisele Bundchen and Israeli beauty Bar Refaeli, while he split from his last girlfriend, Erin Heatherton, in late 2012.
