George Clooney NOT “Dumped” By Wife Amal On 4th Anniversary, Despite Report
George Clooney was not âdumpedâ by his wife Amal on their fourth anniversary, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can correct this claim from one of this weekâs tabloids, which further maintains the human rights attorney wants âhalf his $1 billion fortuneâ and was allegedly âusing him the whole time.â After several days of looking into the cover story, not one Clooney source could confirm their marriage is âover,â as contended. In fact, weâve been told their relationship is perfectly fine.
According to Life & Style, the smoking gun that the Clooneys are supposedly getting a divorce is that they didnât spend their fourth wedding anniversary together on September 27, since the actor was in Los Angeles and his wife was in New York. A so-called âinsiderâ is quoted as saying, âThe fact that they couldnât manage to be in the same city and spend such an important day together was writing on the wall.â Actually, the facts, which the tabloid seems to gloss over, are that the renowned lawyer needed to be across the country in New York on the morning of September 28 since, as widely reported, Amal made a plea at the UN General Assembly for the release of two jailed reporters in Myanmar.
The same unnamed âinsiderâ tells the tabloid, âThey are over as a couple.â Referring again to her not being with her husband on their anniversary, the purported source adds, âItâs pretty cold, but Amal had had enough.â Again, as Gossip Cop noted, there was good reason for them to be apart that day.
From there, the publication then focuses on how the two are so different and what it could mean in terms of custody and cash, if they were to split up. The outlet asserts a âfriendâ tells the tabloid, âGeorge is starting to feel like she used him just to promote her career and get her hands on his fortune.â Of course, Amal was a world-renowned attorney and made quite a nice living before meeting the Oscar winner. Then, the magazineâs seemingly made-up âinsiderâ hypothesizes that should the Clooneys divorce, âI bet she would want primary custodyâ of their twins Ella and Alexander, as if no mother has ever wanted her kids before.
The absurdity continues when the magazine brings up the well-known, yet superficial, differences between the two, including him being a Hollywood actor and she an Oxford-educated lawyer. The outletâs unidentifiable source blathers about how Amal âcanât stand the movie businessâ and thinks all her husbandâs Hollywood friends are âfake,â while heâs supposedly turned off by her âpretentiousâ crowd of British âbarristers and top political thinkers.â âThey both hate hanging out with each otherâs friends,â alleges the tipster, who clearly hasnât seen all the photos of Amal and George hanging out with his best friends Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford.
Just a month ago, Gossip Cop debunked a similar cover story from Life & Style that falsely maintained George and Amal Clooney were âtrappedâ in a âbad marriage.â Chunks of the current article crib claims from the September report that asserted sheâs âcoldâ and âcontrolling,â and the actor often feels like a âscolded teenager.â And before that untrue tale, we also shot down the same tabloidâs cover in June, which wrongly contended the Clooneys were getting a divorce, though Amal was pregnant with their third baby. This time around, the magazine abandoned its fictitious pregnancy angle.
It should be noted, that publication has been inaccurately reporting the couple is splitting up since right after they tied the knot. Back in January 2015, the magazine printed a cover that exclaimed, âGeorge & Amalâs Night: Itâs OverâŠ After 87 Days.â That was followed up a few months later in May with yet another cover story that incorrectly declared, âGeorge & Amalâs Nightmare Divorce Turns Nasty.â
Far from having a bad marriage, George teared up during Amalâs speech when he received an AFI Lifetime Achievement Award over the summer. At the time, she told the crowd heâs an âamazing husband and father,â and publicly shared, âWhat I have found with you is the great love that I always hoped existed.â Meanwhile, this past Friday at Varietyâs âPower Of Womenâ event, George introduced himself to the audience as âIâm Amal Clooneyâs husband,â underscoring the respect he has for his wife. Clearly, the two love and admire each other.
The tabloid wasnât right when it claimed the Clooneys were getting a divorce in 2015, and itâs still wrong to this day. George did not get âdumpedâ on their fourth anniversary. The only ones who should get dumped are the sources that the magazine has repeatedly relied on for its slew of untrue cover stories.
