Los Angeles: Leonardo DiCaprio's representative says the actor is single and not in a relationship with singer Rihanna.

Responding to swirling rumours saying that DiCaprio, 40, is romantically linked to Rihanna, 27, his representative told the Los Angeles Times that he “is single and has been for some time."

The representative added that DiCaprio had in fact 'been focused on shooting' his next film 'The Revenant' in Canada 'for months'.

The adventure drama is directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu who won the Best Director at this year's Oscars for his work in 'Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)'.

DiCaprio and Rihanna's dating rumours started swirling a few weeks ago, after they were spotted attending a birthday bash at the Playboy Mansion. They were seen again at another birthday party at a West Hollywood hotel shortly after.

The duo also stepped out together at Rihanna's own birthday party last month.
