Leonardo DiCaprio's new girlfriend is a draft-dodger, it has been claimed. The Hollywood actor has been dating Israeli swimsuit model Bar Refaeli, 20, for a number of weeks and it has now been revealed the beauty shirked out of her duty by getting married one week before she was due to start military training in 2004.

In Israel, all women aged between 18-20 must serve in the armed forces unless they're physically disabled, married or extremely religious. An alleged friend of Refaeli's family told Evening Standard newspaper: "Everyone knows why she got married. It doesn't take a genius to work it out."
