Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio's charitable foundation would return gifts or donations made to him or his ventures if they were found to have come from the Malaysian wealth fund 1MDB, which is being investigated on money laundering allegations, his reps said on Tuesday. In his first comment on the probe, DiCaprio said he was cooperating with U.S. authorities to determine if money had come from questionable sources, according to the statement. In July a Hollywood production company was accused in a U.S. civil lawsuit of using $100 million that prosecutors said had been diverted from the 1MDB fund to finance DiCaprio's 2013 film "The Wolf of Wall Street." DiCaprio's representatives said he had first learned of the probe through press reports in July. In August, the Hollywood Reporter published a story alleging that the actor's foundation had benefited to the tune of some $2 million from cash and in-kind donations made by a Malaysian financier, who was named in the U.S. lawsuit as being involved in the creation of the 1MDB fund.
