Leonardo DiCaprio Gives Grand Jury Testimony in Malaysian Corruption Probe



DiCaprio has given secret testimony to a grand jury over his role in a multibillion-dollar Malaysian corruption scandal that ensnared the actor, his film The Wolf of Wall Street and its production company, according to a report Friday in The Washington Post.

The DoJ is said to have investigated alleged ties between the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and a Malaysian embezzlement scheme where more than $3 billion was withdrawn from a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund.

DiCaprio is not targeted in the investigation, however the Post report indicates the star is considered a witness to an alleged conspiracy that used proceeds from the 1MDB fund to finance his film The Wolf of Wall Street.
