One of the blogs claims George Clooney and Amal Clooney’s recent romantic dinner came amid so-called “marriage problems.” The blog, which frequently alleges the happy spouses are getting a divorce, is just trying to cover its tracks. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.

On Thursday night, the actor and the human rights lawyer were spotted on a date night at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood. RadarOnline, which has spent a lot of time claiming the couple’s marriage is ending, still refuses to acknowledge that the spouses were never having problems. Instead, the website is twisting the situation to make it seem as if the two were “working out their marriage troubles” during their outing.

Last month, however, the outlet falsely claimed the Clooneys were headed for a divorce and custody battle over their twins, Ella and Alexander. The outlet didn’t mention that just one month prior, George and Amal were photographed holding hands while leaving a United Nations event in New York City. The site also failed to point out that Amal gave a touching speech to George at his AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony last year. During her tribute, the lawyer called the actor an “amazing husband and father” and “the great love that I always hoped existed.” She added, “Seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life.”

The Clooneys aren’t headed for a divorce, and their most recent romantic outing makes that even more clear. The blog is simply trying to avoid having to admit it got the story wrong by insisting the couple went on a date night to work out their issues. That’s not the case.

RadarOnline tried a similar tactic last week after Amal was spotted out to dinner with Cindy Crawford, whose husband Rande Gerber is George’s close friend and business partner. The blog maintained that the human rights lawyer grabbed a meal with the model following a “vicious fight” with her husband and to open up about their so-called “crumbling marriage.” Only, Amal and Crawford were both photographed smiling as they exited the restaurant, making it highly unlikely they had been having a heavy conversation about marital problems.

Gossip Cop also busted the blog last month after it rehashed an article printed in its sister magazine, the National Enquirer, which alleged that Amal moved out of the home she shares with George in England and took their twins with her. That clearly never happened. At a certain point, the website should just cut its losses and acknowledge that the spouses are still happily married.
