Leo DiCaprio

Jewelry Clerk Panics

Please Don't Rob Me!

9/9/2011 6:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An Australian jeweler feared she was about to be robbed by a shady American ... who goes by the name Leo DiCaprio.

A clerk named Linda -- who works at The Family Jewels shop in Sydney -- panicked when she saw two burly men walk into her store and then stood guard at the door.  Suddenly, a man whose face was concealed by a hoodie, cap and dark sunglasses entered the store.  Linda sensed she was about to get robbed, so she sent a customer next door to summon the owner of The Family Jewels.

Alas ... by the time the owner arrived, Linda realized it was not a robber, but a "Titanic" star who was more than able to plunk down $1600 for a Nepalese antique necklace set with lapis lazuli and coral.

Problem was ... Leo's car was blocking traffic, so he said he'd come back to buy the piece. 

And Linda had a good story at the dinner table.

I'm hoping "neckless" is intentionally misspelled. Otherwise, your graphic tech's public schooling is showing through.

and the caption has been changed to the proper spelling... way to go TMZ. Now go fire that guy! Unless he's black or gay, that wouldn't be politically correct.

Okay so why did two guards stand by the door? I just don't think he is that important. That is laughable. Get over yourself dude.

I'm sure he's going to come back and buy it since they released a picture to the world of what he wanted to get and grabbed free media for their store... what if he was getting that as a present for someone..kind of blew the surprise now

@Ann, Did you see the size of the crowd that came out to see Pauly D in the other article? At least Leo DiCaprio is actually a star with talent and credible accomplishments.
