George Clooney is Getting a Divorce – Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:  

George Clooney and his wife, Amal, are headed for divorce.

The Truth:


Reps for George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin Clooney say that claims about a pending divorce are false.

The eRumor started when In Touch magazine ran a cover story in January of 2015 with the headline, “George and Amal’s Nightmare $200 Million Divorce.” The story cites a source that claims:

“They’ve really been fighting about her being in LA. She hates Hollywood, and hates what it stands for.” He was embarrassed by her behavior at the Globes – not only did she talk during his big moment but, “she was giving judgmental looks to some pretty big names there,” says the insider. “After taking her to just one afterparty, they headed home early and got into it.”

The Clooneys got married in September of 2014 in Venice, Italy. Amal is an internationally recognized human rights lawyer who doesn’t fit the profile of Clooney’s previous love interests. That’s made the public — and celebrity gossip magazines — take a lot of interest in their relationship. 

But reps for the Clooneys insist that George and Amal are doing fine. Stan Rosenfield, a rep for the couple, said, “This story is totally made up in order to sell their magazines.”

Another rep for the couple said tabloids have “looked for cracks” in the Clooney’s marriage since it began because “divorce” is easier to sell than “happiness.”
