    Somewhere off the Bahamas in early August 2014, one of the world’s best known super-models was presented with a fabulously expensive and specially commissioned set of diamonds – a matching 18k white gold diamond necklace, earings, bracelet and ring, designed by top jeweller Lorraine Schwartz and costing $1,980,000.


    The presentation of the gift had been “meticulously planned” by her enthusiastic beau through a “high-end concierge servce” on board the brand new super-yacht, which he had just taken delivery of, according to a 251 page court document issued yesterday by the US Department of Justice.

    The super-model was the Australian Miranda Kerr, famous for her own popular Swarovski jewellery collection (prices starting rather less exotically at $69); her pudgy admirer was the Malaysian super-thief Jho Low and the super-yacht was the $250 million, 300 foot Equanimity:

    “capable of carrying up to twenty-six guests and up to thirty-three crew members and includes a helicopter landing pad, an on-board gymnasium, a cinema, a massage room, a sauna, a steam room, an experiential shower and a plunge pool”), delivered in June.
    The gift to Miranda was engraved in her own initials and appears to have been accepted, because it was just one of a series of similar presentations made to her by Jho Low that year, all of which were carved with her own initials “MK”.


    These had included a “11.72 carat heart-shaped diamond” necklace “including multiple chains” worth $1,815,520 and presented to Kerr on Valentine’s Day; an 8.8-carat pink diamond heart-shaped pendant costing $3,800,000 and two 5-carat “internally-flawless, pear-shaped diamond earrings” bought in October for just over a million dollars.

    Leo was not only named for receiving entertainment in Las Vegas gambling dens as a guest of Riza Aziz and Jho, courtesy of money stolen from 1MDB, but the DOJ also listed a string of valuable gifts, which he appeared to have orchestrated for himself, including a Picasso painting and movie poster memorabilia.

    Says the deposition:

    “Leonardo DiCaprio, the lead actor in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” introduced AZIZ to the Cinema Archives Owner at a dinner sometime before filming started on “The Wolf of Wall Street.” AZIZ in turn introduced Cinema Archives Owner to LOW and Red Granite Pictures co-founder Christopher “Joey” McFarland (“McFarland”). AZIZ told the Cinema Archives Owner that LOW was a childhood friend.
    From at least late 2012, AZIZ, McFarland, and the Cinema Archives Owner discussed various movie poster and memorabilia purchases over email. One of AZIZ’s earliest purchases from the Cinema Archives Owner was a 1939 original, year-of-release “Wizard of Oz” movie poster, which AZIZ purchased for $75,000 on October 16, 2012. In an email dated October 8, 2012, the Cinema Archives Owner told AZIZ and McFarland about the “Wizard of Oz” movie poster: “There are 2 copies known [and DiCaprio] has one. … Very important poster.”
