Jay-Z Gets Scolded By Robert De Niro

Jay-Z and Robert De Niro reportedly got into a bit of a squabble during a recent birthday party for Leonardo DiCaprio, the New York Post reports.

A source told the paper that De Niro confronted Jay-Z about not returning his phone calls, saying “He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude.”

Jay-Z then tried to make light of the situation by joking, but De Niro continued to seethe. Jay-Z’s wife, Beyonce, attempted to make peace as well, but to no avail.

A source close to De Niro told the Post, “It was a low-key private conversation between two people that was apparently overheard. It was not a heated discussion.”

But what’s more important is that DiCaprio’s birthday bash raised nearly $3 million, most of which went to his personal foundation that supports a variety of humanitarian and environmental efforts.
