Think you’ve got fraternal pressure because your brother is adored by your parents because he is a highly successful architect with a model wife and two model children and you are currently unemployed “weighing your options” for the last two years? Imagine the difficulty of Adam Farrar, who is the older stepbrother of legendary actor Leonardo DiCaprio who has a net worth of $217 million. Apparently Farrar has dealt with the situation by running away from theft charges and is currently on the lam.
Weeks after Leonardo earned his crowning career achievement for winning the coveted Academy Award, his fugitive stepbrother failed to appear at a court date on February 18 for petty theft and police have issued a warrant for his arrest. His most recent arrest comes following the theft of goods less than $700 along with his girlfriend, Charity Moore.
“Adam continues to run away from responsibilities and it’s going to land him in jail again,” according to a family source. “He’s struggled before with drugs and although he makes promises to get clean, he gets caught up in something else.”
“Leo is sympathetic but this is the latest in a long line of offenses and he’s at the end of his tether,” the same family source revealed. They also said that the Oscar-winning actor “got fed up with Adam asking to borrow money and not paying it back.”
The 44-year-old Farrar is related to Leonardo because the share the same father, George. The stepbrothers lived together in Los Angeles as young kids when Farrar’s mother, Peggy, married George, when Leo was a one-year-old.
Farrar is a former actor himself and is credited with being Leonardo’s inspiration to get into acting.
It doesn’t help that Leo is one of the best actors of all-time and is now even trying to save the planet.
