George Clooney is not “blaming” his wife Amal for ruining a prospective political career, despite a new report that’s riddled with one inaccuracy after another. Gossip Cop can correct this claim, which began in one of the tabloids and was not surprisingly picked up by a slew of untrustworthy webloids.

According to the National Enquirer, Clooney was convinced before marrying his wife that the renowned human rights attorney “could turn him into a political heavyweight.” The tabloid then quotes one of its ill-informed sources as saying, “George thought that Amal would help him fulfill his dream of running for office and, maybe one day, becoming president.”

But, says the magazine’s “source” in seemingly fabricated quotes, Amal has became a “red-carpet darling,” and “suddenly, he isn’t getting calls from D.C. movers and shakers, and he believes Amal’s to blame. Instead of being like Bill and Hillary Clinton, they’ve become a trashy celebrity couple like Kim and Kanye!”

The tabloid ends its piece with its phony source saying that after the Clooneys finish renovating their London-area home, “George is going to have a house-warming party, and carry Amal over the threshold… Then he’s going to leave Amal on her own in that big old mansion, while he hightails it back to America to rebuild his image.”

It should be obvious simply by reading the quotes from the Enquirer’s “source” that this is all made up. Also, Gossip Cop has reported in the past that the actor is not running for any office. A year ago, Clooney’s rep told us in reference to another fake tabloid story, “George has stated repeatedly that he would never go into politics.” Nothing has changed in the past year, most especially the Enquirer’s incredibly poor record when it comes to reporting about Amal and George Clooney.
