Leonardo DiCaprio's 38th birthday party was a star studded charity event..... but that according to the New York Post, that did not stop the 69-year-old legendary actor from letting Jay-Z know that he was not pleased with him.. Allegedly when Jay came over to his table to greet him, De Niro told him he felt disrespected that Jay-Z had never returned his phone calls.
Supposedly Jay-Z had agreed to record a song for the Tribeca Film Festival, which De Niro co-founded in 2002, but never returned calls....and De Niro wasn't letting him slide!
The reports go on to say that sources claim,
"Bob wasn't in any mood to make polite conversation....He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn't matter who you are, that is just rude."
Another source confirmed the story, adding:
"De Niro kept telling him that he thinks he's the man, but that he was disrespectful. Beyoncé came over, but that didn't calm Bob down."Remember Jay-Z lives right near Rober De Niro, as he says in the 2009 song "Empire State of Mind,"
“Yeah I’m out that Brooklyn, now I’m down in Tribeca/Right next to De Niro but I’ll be hood forever”
Despite issues, the event went on to raise $500,000 for charity.
Both Jay-Z and De Niro's camps have not confirmed these reports... but think it's true????
