One year ago, a tabloid falsely claimed George Clooney and Amal Clooney were having a third baby and renewing their vows after nearly divorcing. Gossip Cop debunked the story when it was first published. 365 days later, it’s clear the report was untrue.
On January 4, 2019, Gossip Cop called out the Globe for wrongly reporting that George and Amal were calling off a “billion-dollar divorce” and recommitting to each other in a big way. An alleged insider told the magazine that the spouses had been headed for a split over time apart and their different lifestyles, but ultimately realized they “want to stick around for the long haul.” The supposed source went on to say that the human rights lawyer agreed to giver her husband “more space,” while he promised to “make more time” for her and their twins.
From there, the unknown tipster said the Clooneys would renew their vows with a “no-frills beach ceremony” somewhere in Southern California. After that, according to the questionable source, the spouses planned to “undergo IVF” as Amal was “aiming to be a mom again by mid- to late 2019.”
The first major problem with the tabloid’s phony story was that the spouses were never on the verge of a divorce. The outlet didn’t bother to mention when their supposed issues started, but several months prior, Amal gave a touching speech during George’s AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony. The human rights attorney called her spouse an “amazing husband and father” and “the great love that I always hoped existed.” Less than three months before the tabloid published its article, George introduced himself as “Mr. Amal Clooney” at Variety‘s Power of Women luncheon. And one month before the bogus story, George and Amal enjoyed a date night in New York City, and the actor’s parents even tagged along. So, at what point exactly were they about to split?
Meanwhile, George and Amal have both been very adamant about not having more kids. The parents of two have both said in separate interviews that they don’t plan on expanding their family. Amal previously told the Hollywood Reporter that she “already had [kids] quite late,” while George said in an interview with Extra that he was “done” having children.
The Clooneys are still going strong in 2020, but they never had another baby or renewed their vows to maintain their marriage. Unfortunately, the Globe hasn’t stopped printing fiction about the couple. Earlier this week, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming George and Amal were having marriage problems as a result of his back pain. The tabloid has no insight into the couple’s relationship.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
