Leonardo DiCaprio asked to refund millions embezzled to bankroll ‘Wolf of Wall Street & his Charity

Hollywood super star actor, Leonardo DiCaprio is being urged to refund millions of dollars used to bankroll the Wolf of Wall Street and given to his foundation amid accusations it was embezzled.

The Department of Justice is investigating the whereabouts $3.5billion that was 'misappropriated' from the Malaysian sovereign wealth fund between 2009 and 2015, in what has been dubbed the world's largest embezzlement case.

A court filing from the DoJ alleges that at least some of that money found its way into DiCaprio's pocket through his film and charity work.

The A-list actor is not named in the 136-page complaint, but is simply referred to as 'Hollywood Actor 1', the Telegraph reports.
