Leonardo DiCaprio Has Been Ordered to Return Oscar Amidst Court Case

Leonardo DiCaprio spent years as a joke while trying to get an Oscar of his own, and now the 44-year-old actor is being obliged to hand over an Academy Award in his custody to the feds.

Don’t worry, though, it’s not the golden trophy he received for his role in 2015 film The Revenant. It’s actually the Marlon Brando’s 1954 Oscar for On the Waterfront.

DiCaprio was awarded the Oscar by Malaysian investor Jho Low, who originally bought the Oscar for $600,000 at an auction.

DiCaprio was also nominated for an Oscar for his part in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street, a film which Low funded. The problem? Rendering to The New York Times, Low is being indicted by DAs of committing fraud against an investment fund for billions of dollars.

DiCaprio has turned over the Oscar as well as a painting by Pablo Picasso and any further gifts given to him by Low.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has the entitlement to buy any Oscar back for $1, so that’s where the trophy will most likely land once the investigation has resolved.

Low is presently a fugitive, who the Times says is “believed to be hiding in China.”
