Leonardo DiCaprio may be flying high fresh of his Oscar win, but his brother is becoming a name in his own right after reportedly going on the run from the police after skipping a court date. The Wolf of Wall Street star’s stepbrother Adam Farrar was in hiding with his partner Charity Moore after failing to show up in court on 18 February.
Farrar, a former actor, and Moore were arrested in January after allegedly trying to steal items worth $990 (Dhs3,600), but have now both disappeared. Police officers issued a warrant for his arrest and their bail has been set at $3,000 (Dhs11,000) for when they are caught. DiCaprio’s father, George, and Farrar’s mother, Peggy, married in 1995, after meeting through their sons, who attended the same preschool and grew to be close friends. The pair’s friendship waned when Farrar stopped acting, began battling a drug addiction and had run-ins with the police, including a three-week stint in jail in 2013 for theft and breaking probation.
“Adam continues to run away from responsibilities and it’s going to land him in jail again,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “He’s struggled before with drugs and although he makes promises to get clean, he gets caught up in something else. Leo is sympathetic but this is the latest in a long line of offences and he’s at the end of his tether. He got fed up with Adam asking to borrow money and not paying it back. No one knows where Adam and Charity have gone.”
