George Clooney does not have a secret love child with ex-girlfriend Stacy Keibler, despite an absurd tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the outrageous story. There's no truth to it.
According to NW, Clooney recently received an "anonymous letter" demanding that he 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. An alleged insider tells the outlet that Clooney's wife Amal "was left floored and in tears" after discovering the note at their Lake Como home.
"George split from Stacy in July 2013, but there were rumors they were still seeing each other on and off over the next couple of months," says the supposed source, adding that the actor ended the fling "after seeing Amal and realizing they shared a deep connection." The purported tipster further contends Keibler was still hooking up with Clooney when she started dating her now-husband, "which throws a question mark over who Ava's father is."
The possibly made-up source goes on to assert Amal is "a wreck" over the situation, and it's causing a major rift between the couple, "despite George laughing it off and insisting it's impossible." The so-called "insider" concludes, "While she trusts George and wants to believe him, even harboring the tiniest doubt it could be true has shaken her to the core."
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the movie star, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but tells us the magazine's article is completely ridiculous. We're assured Clooney never received a letter demanding a paternity test for Keibler's daughter. It should be noted, a family photo that Keibler posted on Instagram shows that Ava looks very much like Pobre, her actual father.
Unfortunately, we're not surprised by the tabloid's bogus story. Gossip Cop recently busted NW for falsely claiming Clooney had a secret fling with Meghan Markle prior to meeting Amal. The Ocean's Eleven star never had a romance with the former "Suits" actress prior to her becoming a duchess. Shortly after that, we called out the publication for wrongly alleging Clooney was addicted to painkillers.
This also wouldn't be the first time a tabloid has concocted a phony narrative involving the actor and his ex. Back in 2014 when Clooney got engaged to Amal, we debunked a report about Keibler "seething" because she believed the actor should have married her instead. In reality, the former WWE star had already happily moved on with Pobre, with whom she now shares two kids. Simply, their oldest child doesn't belong to Clooney.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
