Amal Clooney Law Career “On Hold” To Be “Celebrity Fashion Designer” Report NOT True
Amal Clooney is NOT putting her law career “on hold” to become a “celebrity fashion designer,” despite reports. Gossip Cop can debunk the claims. She remains as committed as ever to being a human rights lawyer.
“Is Amal Alamuddin giving up the law to become a celebrity fashion designer?” asks Celeb Dirty Laundry, which writes, “Amal Alamuddin’s career as an International human rights lawyer has definitely seen it’s fair share of ups and downs [sic]. And that might be the reason why George Clooney’s wife is looking to switch gears and become a celebrity fashion designer instead.”
Picking up a story from Grazia, the webloid claims, “Oscar de la Renta’s creative director Peter Copping wants the British lawyer work with the fashion house as a co-consultant for their brand.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Amal has long been obsessed with clothes, but she never considered working in the fashion industry. Since finding herself in the spotlight, she’s collaborated with designers who have created custom-made pieces, and had a very hands-on role. She’s love to develop these working relationships further.”
And so CDL asks, “But [would] Amal Alamuddin be willing to throw away her law career to become a stylist?” The site even adds, “While there’s little chance that Amal Alamuddin will be trading in the courtroom for the runway anytime soon, there’s no doubt that ‘the Clooney effect’ has definitely helped her advance in her career. She wouldn’t have gotten all of the high-profile cases if it weren’t for her marriage, and that’s why so many people are calling Amal a ‘Kim Kardashian with a law degree.’”
First off, if the outlet knows there’s “little chance” of Clooney making this career change, why run the story to begin with? Second, the attorney was successful long before her Hollywood husband entered the picture. And third, anyone calling Clooney “Kim Kardashian with a law degree” should not be taken seriously.
And neither Celeb Dirty Laundry nor Grazia should be taken seriously, either. Clooney has no intentions of putting her law career “on hold” to be a fashion designer. And the webloid would have known that if it bothered to fact-check before running its wishy-washy report that was based on a disreputable tabloid. Lastly, let’s not forget that CDL is the same site that said Amal was divorcing George last December.
