Amal Clooney Gold Digger


Amal Clooney is NOT “using” George Clooney for his money, despite a new tabloid cover story that wrongly suggests the human rights lawyer is a “gold digger.” Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim.

According to Star, while Amal has a successful career as an internationally-renown attorney and activist, she “hit the jackpot” by marrying George, and allegedly his pals are now “questioning her motives for marrying him.” One so-called “source” tells the magazine, “His friends just hope he made the right decision and that Amal will make him as happy as he’s determined to make her. But some fear she could be a gold digger!”

Star goes on to twist George’s recent interview about his proposal, in which he joked about Amal taking “28 minutes” to say yes, as a “sign that she may not love him as much as he loves her.” The tabloid writes, “The more Amal thought about it, though, the more she realized that marrying an uber wealthy movie star would be a smart decision.” “She enjoyed living his lifestyle,” the tabloid’s alleged “insider” explains as the supposed reason Amal eventually accepted the proposal, adding, “For a girl like Amal, the princess treatment goes a long way.”

The magazine goes on to say how her family was “never wealthy,” and claims Amal was “viewed as a social climber.” “They’ve said she’s only interested in rich men,” the outlet’s “source” further alleges. Star fills out the rest of its article by detailing George and Amal’s supposed spending, claiming she’s “been blowing through $2 million each month, in an effort to bring her own lifestyle up to par” with his.

George has money. Amal has her own money. The Clooneys have money together, and they are entitled to live a luxurious life in any fashion they want. If George was so concerned about any spending, he would not have married her, let alone treat her like a “princess,” as Star readily admits. Glaringly, the tabloid never says who specifically is calling her a “social climber” or “gold digger.” The magazine just broadly attributes its made-up phony claims to people identified only as “friends” and “they.”

Of course, this is the same tabloid that Gossip Cop corrected last December for falsely claiming Amal was pregnant. Gossip Cop also debunked a Star story in February that wrongly alleged Amal was a “diva.” The magazine’s “sources” continue to be clueless about the couple’s marriage, as this “gold digger” story is 100 percent FALSE. Regardless, a source close to the situation assures Gossip Cop this is all tabloid “bullsh*t.”
