It seems like serial dater and modelizer Leo DiCaprio has found a girl he really likes — for now.
He and Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton have been together since December and they were looking awfully lovey dovey at the Darby Restaurant in New York City on Tuesday night.
The two attended a private party held by Warner execs Lyor Cohen and Todd Moskowitz and even gave a standing O following Gary Clark Jr.'s performance.
While the couple seemed cozy, their reps had no comment.

Earlier in the year Questlove mentioned he was working on a very special birthday present for Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
The drummer of the Roots said the present was a specially-made iPod that would feature 12,000 songs that are essential in life.
Well, the music man has finished his amazing present and gave it to his good friend and new daddy, Jay-Z.
What did the rapper think of Q's gift?

The leader of The Roots says that Tina isn't very nice to the band. What makes it worse for Quest is that they're all from Philly.
He goes on to say the following:

Unfortunately, it seems that actions always have consequences - even if the initial action was effing HIGHlarious!
Roots drummer Questlove caused a bit of controversy for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon when he chose to play Fishbone's Lyin' Ass Bitch during Michele Bachmann's walk-on song, and apparently now, he's being forced to clear every song choice with three NBC executives!

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon got a little snarky last night.
But it was the house band, not Jimmy Fallon, who threw Michele Bachmann for a loop.
The GOP presidential hopeful appeared on the late night show and she was met with an interesting song choice.
The Roots took a jab at Bachmann and drummer Questlove hit the Twitter-verse with the following:
