A man claiming to be Leonardo DiCaprio’s dad has revealed himself in a classified ad on the back cover of this week’s Voice. No, we’re not making this up, this is an actual, for-real, paid advertisement from a Michael Knute Ingebrethsen of Queens, seeking his allegedly estranged son.
We’ve reached out to Ingebrethsen several times for comment, but he has not returned our calls.
Here’s a blown-up version of the ad:
Please, Michael Knute Ingebrethsen, e-mail us [email@example.com] or call us back so we can get the full story. And Leonardo DiCaprio, if you’re reading, we’d really love to hear your take on this situation. Also, you were fantastic in Titanic!
