A website that has often been caught fabricating stories claims Amal and George Clooney’s twins “look like him.” Of course, the blog has not seen any photos of the kids and instead is taking a 50-50 guess, while making up phony “source” quotes to back-up its manufactured claim. Regardless, Gossip Cop is assured no one in the Clooneys’ inner circle is speaking to repeatedly discredited blogs about the actor’s babies.

According to HollywoodLife, the “twins look more like George.” The webloid further asserts that while no photos are out of the actor’s son and daughter, Alexander and Ella, the babies “def look like George more.” Here’s a better usage of the word “def”: The site “def” made up this article, including its alleged quotations. At best, the often debunked outlet is extrapolating from a comment the actor’s father Nick gave to a local Cincinnati TV station in which he remarked that Alexander may possibly have “George’s nose.” After that, HollywoodLies, as it has become known, has nothing else to offer that backs up its claim that the twins resemble the actor more than Amal.

The site has been concocting untrue articles involving Clooney for years. Rather famously, HollywoodLies cooked up a story right on the heels of the Brangelina breakup that claimed Brad Pitt turned to Clooney for support. Hilariously or pathetically, depending on how one sees it, the webloid published the story well before Clooney even knew the couple was divorcing. Sadly, however, that’s just one of the many tall tales the blog has crafted about Clooney that Gossip Cop has had to bust.

In any event, no one from Clooney’s camp is dishing details about the twins, and most especially to HollywoodLies. The site is taking a guess and seemingly doesn’t care whether it’s right or wrong, based on how frequently it gets exposed for manufacturing phony reports. Arguably, HollywoodLife is interested in duping Google and other search engines for cheap traffic. When there’s actual news on Clooney’s twins, Gossip Cop will have it. And in the meantime, we’ll keep calling out outlets for making up fake news.
