Even as we are well aware of what's happening in actor Leonardo DiCaprio's life, not much is known of his stepbrother Adam Farrar. In an interview with the Daily Mail, the Oscar winner's brother has opened up about the bitter feud between them and revealed what tore their relationship apart.
According to Farrar, he was very close to The Revenant star once, but they fell out after DiCaprio became a multimillionaire. Adam told the website, "We were once so close. I loved him and I still do. But we've not spoken in a couple of years. The last time I saw Leo was at his birthday party a couple of years ago."
"I'd been invited by another friend. Leo was pleased to see me and gave me a hug. But when I try to call him, my messages go unanswered. He has a whole team around him now and it's impossible to penetrate that wall of hangers-on," Farrar added.
The struggling TV-scene painter even admitted that DiCaprio cares more about the environment than he cares about his brother. "Leo wants to save the world but he seems more concerned about the environment and climate change than he does about his own brother. It hurts."
Leo's father George separated from his German mother Irmelin, to be with Farrar's mother Peggy. At the time, DiCaprio was just a one-year-old. Farrar admitted that they "had a bond that was thicker than blood". Although, Farrar has suffered from drug-addiction in the past, he did not blame his brother's success for his decline. "It was a heady world and I embraced it. I'm a grown man and I'm responsible for my own actions. I don't blame Leo for that," he said.
Calling the Hollywood star a "playboy", the 45-year-old said, "I see his life now, the fact that he's still doing the partying and hanging out with models, and I feel sorry for him. He hasn't grown up. I've been with the same woman for 17 years and have a kid, but Leo's still a playboy."
"When he first got famous he told me how lonely it felt. How he didn't know who he could trust. I think that's part of why he is like he is now. He's seeking something to make his life complete. I hope for his sake he finds it," he added.
