George Clooney and Amal Clooney’s marriage is frequently the subject of phony tabloid stories. Gossip Cop has debunked several false claims about the spouses as of late. Here are five recent wrong rumors.

Last month, Gossip Cop busted OK! for wrongly reporting that the Clooneys were having a second set of twins. The magazine had zero evidence to back up its claim, but insisted the human rights lawyer was at least three months pregnant with two more babies. Around the same time the story was published, Amal was photographed at a United Nations event in New York City, and she had no sign of a baby bump. Meanwhile, Amal assured the Hollywood Reporter in 2017 that she’s not having another baby. Shortly later, George emphatically told “Extra” that he’s “done” having kids.

Last October, Gossip Cop called out the Globe for publishing a phony cover story about George divorcing his wife over her “demanding behavior.” The magazine further maintained that the movie star was tired of being “beaten down by her intellect” and “superior way of speaking.” But far from feeling belittled by his wife, George jokingly introduced himself as “Mr. Amal Clooney” at Variety’s annual Power of Women luncheon, which was held just weeks before the outlet wrote its article. As time has shown, the happy spouses are still together.

Earlier last October, Life & Style published an opposing story about Amal dumping her husband on their fourth anniversary. The tabloid alleged that the lawyer was going after “half his $1 billion fortune” and had been “using him the whole time.” In reality, Amal never planned to divorce her husband and take his money. In fact, Amal gave a touching speech during George’s AFI Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony last summer. The attorney called her spouse an “amazing husband and father,” and added, “What I have found with you is the great love that I always hoped existed.”

Gossip Cop also busted the National Enquirer last October for making up a story about Amal being competitive with her husband over who’s the bigger star. The outlet claimed that the lawyer blurted out during a dinner party, “I’m the bigger celebrity!” Not only did a rep for the actor tell us the story was “made-up,” but Amal said in a 2016 “Today” show interview that she doesn’t consider herself a celebrity.

And finally, last September the Globe claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle asked the Clooneys to be the godparents of their “adopted African baby.” Gossip Cop debunked the story as soon as it emerged. We learned at the time that royal couple had no plans to adopt a baby from Africa, and less than three months later, the news emerged that Markle was pregnant with her first child. George and Amal haven’t been named godparents of the royal couple’s real baby either.
