Is Love Island host Maya Jama dating Leonardo DiCaprio?

Jama was recently seen wearing a necklace with the word ‘Leo’ on it. This led fans to think that she is in a relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

Maya took to Twitter yesterday to lay all of the rumors to rest and denied being in a relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio.

In fact, she said that the ‘Leo’ necklace represents her star sign, since her birthday is August 14th. 

One fan wrote, “Even I had a hunch, before even knowing your birthday, that it could be star sign related. People love to make a story.”
