Two bodyguards working in Leonardo Dicaprio's security team have been arrested in Israel following a clash with photographers.

The 32-year-old Titanic star is currently touring the country with his Israeli supermodel girlfriend Bar Refaeli. It is thought that the couple were taking a private tour of the Western Wall tunnels near the Western Wall, sometimes known as the Wailing Wall, which is the holiest site in Judaism.

However when the pair left the holy site, alleged clashes between the security team and paparazzi led to the arrests of two bodyguards. A van was said to be waiting to whisk away the couple, who have reportedly been dating since last year, to the home of Bar's parents.

"Two of his security guards were arrested by police after being involved in a fight that broke out," Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said.

He added that the arrested were being questioned.

Leonardo has been romantically linked to a number of supermodels in the past including Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen and Eva Herzigova. The Departed star also dated Brazilian beauty Gisele from 2002 to 2006.
