At a recent soiree in New York, says a source, a photographer for agency Patrick McMullan who had been approved to roam the event, snapped a shot of the actor. DiCaprio confronted him, demanded he delete the shots and, after the photog assented, stood there and watched as he did it.

Reps for Patrick McMullan and the actor had no comment.
