George Clooney and Amal Clooney aren’t having a marriage crisis over a so-called “love child scandal,” despite a false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the premise. The supposed controversy was invented by the magazine.
According to the National Enquirer, the movie star is suspected of impregnating ex-girlfriend Stacy Keibler around the same time he started dating Amal in 2013. The magazine alleges that an anonymous letter arrived at the couple’s Lake Como home, and it demanded that George take a DNA test to determine if he’s the real father of Keibler’s five-year-old daughter Ava, whom she shares with husband Jared Pobre.
“Amal was in shock at first, but once the enormity of the allegations set in, she went on the warpath,” a supposed source tells the outlet. “I’m told it led to the mother of all showdowns between her and George, and after a long fiery fight she stormed off, packing her bags and taking the twins.”
The seemingly made-up tipster goes on to say that George “is swearing up and down it’s nonsense, and that the timing isn’t possible because he didn’t sleep with Stacy between the time they officially split and when he and Amal started dating.” The human rights lawyer, however, is said to be “heartbroken” over the situation and wants her husband to submit to a DNA test.
The questionable source further contends that the “paternity scandal” is coming on the heels of months of tension between the spouses. “It seems they’re destined for a lifetime of drama,” adds the possibly fictitious insider. “No wonder people are starting to think she’ll eventually walk out on George for good.”
Gossip Cop already debunked this narrative last week when NW similarly alleged that George might be the real father of Keibler’s oldest child. Sources close to the situation assured us the report was completely ridiculous. As we noted at the time, a family photo that Keibler posted on Instagram shows that Ava looks very much like Pobre, her actual dad.
Unfortunately, the Enquirer has decided to continue this bogus storyline by claiming the non-scandal is tearing George and Amal apart. In reality, the actor never received a letter asking for a DNA test, and no one in Keibler’s inner circle believes her daughter secretly belongs to George. The entire scenario is a fantasy concocted by the tabloids.
In May, Gossip Cop busted the same publication for falsely claiming Amal had dumped George on his birthday. In reality, the Clooneys actually celebrated his birthday together. In January, the tabloid wrongly reported Amal had moved out of the home she shares with George in England and took their twins with her. The similar-sounding incident never occurred.
Earlier this week, George and Amal were spotted smiling and interlocking arms during a date night in Italy. It’s clear they aren’t going through any sort of marital crisis, despite the magazine constantly alleging otherwise.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
