Leonardo DiCaprio and Kim Kardashian were quizzed by the FBI as part of the feds’ investigation into Malaysian financier Jho Low, newly surfaced documents reveal, and one wild Kardashian tale involved trash bags of cash at a Las Vegas casino.
According to an explosive new Bloomberg Businessweek report, previously undisclosed documents reveal that the FBI was speaking with stars as they tried to get intel in their case against Low, the mysterious mogul at the center of the infamous 1MDB fund embezzlement scandal.
According to the outlet, Kardashian told the FBI in 2019 that she was once in Las Vegas with a group, including Low and two “Wolf of Wall Street,” producers playing baccarat in a private room past 5 a.m.
But when the Skims mogul, now 42, decided to leave, a pal told her to stick around because he’d “heard stories of Low giving people chips at the end of the night.”
Kardashian “stayed and ended winning big on one game,” the FBI docs say.
But when she tried to “give all her chips back to Low,” whom she first met in 2009, he told her that the chips were hers to keep.
When Kardashian went to the casino counter to cash in her chips, the FBI report says, she learned she had $350,000 in winnings and was subsequently given “a trash bag full of one hundred dollar bills,” worth $250,000.
The FBI report says Kardashian later “put the trash bag full of cash in her carry-on bag and boarded a Southwest Airlines flight back to Los Angeles.”
She reportedly then collected another $100,000 — in another trash bag of cash — during a subsequent trip to party with Low in Las Vegas.
Page Six reached out to Kardashian’s rep, who declined to comment.
The FBI reports also say that in 2014, Kardashian told ex-husband Kanye West that Low wanted to give her a painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat, but the rapper allegedly “made Kardashian text Low and say that they don’t like Basquiat and instead wanted a Monet.”
The move was apparently to “mess with Low because both Kardashian and West found Low to be very fickle when giving gifts and never expected to actually receive a painting,” according to FBI docs.
The FBI papers also reflect that Kardashian received $305,000 from Low as a wedding gift when she married Kris Humphries in 2011, and that she bought a white Ferrari with the money.
She later sold the car and bought a Lamborghini in West’s name, the docs say.
The FBI reports also say DiCaprio, now 48, had partied in Vegas with Low, who’s now an international fugitive for his alleged role in scamming $700 million from the 1MDB fund.

Low has denied any wrongdoing in the case.
Before being accused in the 1MDB fraud scheme, Low was known for partying with stars, dropping big bucks on luxury real estate and art and even allegedly backing DiCaprio’s 2013 film, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” via ill-fated production company Red Granite Pictures.
The FBI reports detail DiCaprio’s close friendship with Low, but say the actor usually “relies on his reps to read the reports and give him an okay to continue to work with someone.
“In this case, his reps gave him the green light to continue to work with Low.”
The FBI also wrote: “DiCaprio lives in a world of rumors… so he did not take any of them seriously until the main negative news stories about Low came out and his team told him it was now serious.”
When news reports linking Low to the 1MDB scandal surfaced in 2015, Bloomberg reports, the Oscar winner was “planning a fundraiser in Saint-Tropez, France, for his foundation. Low promised to donate a piece by the artist Roy Lichtenstein.”
When the art reportedly never arrived, DiCaprio had to pull it from the auction and subsequently “started to distance himself from Low.”
“He was embarrassed,” the FBI docs note.
A source told Page Six of the stars’ relationships with Low, “These celebrities didn’t do work for this criminal. In many cases they were actually just duped themselves.”
