Hey, big spender!

Leonardo DiCaprio wasn’t afraid of breaking the bank at the Generous People Gala by The Heart Fund in Cannes early this week, dropping over $18,000 on a Chanel bag during the annual charity dinner.

Joining celebrity attendees like Swizz Beatz, Paris Hilton and Mischa Barton at the InterContinental Carlton Cannes, DiCaprio also nabbed a Innangelo silk scarf for $5,650.

A source told Page Six that the designer purse is a gift for his mother, Irmelin Indenbirken.

The Generous People Gala’s proceeds go 100 percent to The Heart Fund, an organization that travels to the world’s most remote areas to perform surgeries and screen children for cardiovascular diseases.

DiCaprio has a history of being a high-roller at charity events, and even bought a different Chanel bag for his mother at the same soirée last year – beating out Hilton.

Earlier in 2016, DiCaprio dropped $95,000 for a Mongolian expedition at the February amfAR charity auction. DiCaprio secured the trip with adventure explorer Johan Ernst Nilson after some lively bidding.

Other big nabs? Bono‘s old guitar, which cost the actor $100,000 at Sean Penn’s annual J/P Haitian Relief Organization gala in January, according to E! News. He also purchased a Walton Ford painting for $250,000 at the Turtle Ball last fall, reported Page Six.

DiCaprio partied the night away at Cannes earlier in the week, spending time with Victoria’s Secret model Georgia Fowler at Gotha Club.

The actor and Fowler mingled with friends like Nadine Leopold and Tobey Maguire, and danced together.
