The tabloids have an ongoing narrative about George Clooney and Amal Clooney fighting over other women in the actor’s life. These countless takes on the topic have never been true. Here are a few stories Gossip Cop has busted this year alone.
Back in January, Gossip Cop busted the National Enquirer for falsely claiming George was leaving his wife for Julia Roberts. The magazine alleged the Ocean’s Eleven co-stars were both divorcing their respective spouses, and developing a romance in the process. In reality, neither star was having marriage problems. The Clooneys celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in September. Roberts and her husband, Danny Moder, celebrated 17 years of marriage in July. The fanciful report was total fiction.
In July, NW made up a story about George having a “secret fling” with Meghan Markle several years ago. The outlet didn’t make it clear if Amal knew about the alleged hookup. However, the magazine suggested that George and Markle “laugh” about it when his wife and Prince Harry aren’t around. The publication claimed the fling occurred in early 2013, a few months prior to George meeting Amal, but never explained where and how he met Markle. At the time, the former actress was based on Toronto, where she shot the TV series Suits. The bogus report came on the heels of the actor defending the Duchess of Sussex in interviews. George had said Markle was being unfairly “vilified” by the press. This prompted the outlet to create a tall tale about the two secretly hooking up back in the day. It never happened.
NW tried to create more fake drama in July by falsely claiming George has a secret love child with ex-girlfriend Stacy Keibler. The outlet claimed the movie star received an “anonymous letter” demanding that he take a DNA test to determine if he’s the real father of Keibler’s five-year-old daughter. George never received such a letter, and the young girl belongs to Keibler’s husband, Jared Pobre. Still, a suppose source said Amal was “a wreck” over the situation, and didn’t know what to believe. Actually, there was no reason to believe anything about the tabloid’s story. A source close to the situation assured Gossip Cop it was totally absurd. Meanwhile, Kiebler often posts family photos on Instagram, and anyone with eyes can see that her daughter looks very much like Pobre, her real father.
And in October, Woman’s Day claimed George got flirty with Brie Larson while shooting a Nespresso ad in Madrid. The tabloid further claimed the Captain Marvel star had developed a crush on the actor. The phony storyline was sold using the headline, “Watch Out Amal: Brie’s After George!” The only accurate aspect of the story was that George shot a Nespresso ad with Larson. A source close to the situation assured Gossip Cop that the two didn’t get flirty on set. Amal had no reason to “watch out” for the actress. There are no other women coming between the Clooneys, despite this recurring theme in the tabloids.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
