George Clooney is “breaking the bank” for an “over-the-top,” $2 million “wedding of the century,” claims Life & Style, which notes the actor is “sparing no expense” for his “lavish — and we mean lavish! — nuptials” with fiancée Amal Alamuddin at his Lake Como estate.

“It’ll be a three-day extravaganza with the finest wines and delicacies from Italy, boat rides on the lake and fireworks at night,” a so-called “friend of the couple” tells Life & Style.

The magazine estimates Clooney will spend $300,000 on vintage wine and champagne, $45,000 on catering for an “epic feast,” another $100,000 on flowers and decorations, $500,000 on security, plus $10,000 for “his custom Armani tuxedo.”

Of course, that doesn’t add up to $2 million, but Life & Style claims the movie star will also “shell out for private jets” for the “biggest names in Hollywood,” and put all the guests up “at five-star resorts.”

The tab further alleges Clooney will give Alamuddin “everything she could possibly want on their wedding day,” with a “source” saying, “He’s going to spend a king’s ransom to show much he loves her and cherishes her.”

Wow… as in, wow, this all sounds incredibly sensational and made-up. Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Clooney, who slammed the story, telling us there’s “not one iota of truth in this in any way, shape or form.” Surprise, surprise.
