KEY POINTS

  • George Clooney, reportedly, wants Amal Alamuddin and their twins to live in Los Angeles, Calif. permanently
  • The British-Lebanese barrister, allegedly, does not want Ella and Alexander to follow their father's footsteps
  • George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin donated a total of $1 million for coronavirus relief

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are, undeniably, among the most followed celebrity couples today. The “Ocean’s Eleven” actor and British-Lebanese barrister tied the knot in a glamorous Venice wedding on Sept. 27, 2014. George and Amal, then, welcomed their twins – Ella and Alexander – on June 6, 2017. Though the couple has been successful in keeping the details of their personal lives under wraps, numerous issues and malicious rumors continue to hound their marriage.

Star Magazine, in its upcoming April 13, 2020 issue, claimed that George and Amal have been feuding over where to raise their kids. Rumors have it that the “Up in the Air” actor and his wife have been living separately for months now. While George is busy with his acting gigs and projects, Amal is said to be working very hard as a human rights lawyer in London.

George Clooney, according to the publication, wants to have his family settle down in Los Angeles permanently, especially since Ella and Alexander are turning three in June. However, sources claimed that Amal Alamuddin does not agree with her husband’s plans. This issue has, allegedly, caused fights between the power couple.

“There’s a lot of tension at the Clooney house right now. George wants to be back in L.A. but Amal isn’t budging,” an insider told Star. Amal, reportedly, wants her kids to “receive a world-class education in Europe” and does not want them to “fall victim to the trappings of celebrity.” “Another worry is that they’d want to follow in George’s footsteps and become actors. She doesn’t want that for her kids,” the tipster went on.

Because of this, George Clooney has, allegedly, been using the influence of his friends, such as Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, and Julia Roberts, to convince Amal Alamuddin to transfer to California. Though the “Batman & Robin” star does not give up easily, he is, reportedly, likely to give in to his wife’s plans. “Amal’s pretty set in her ways. Some would even say she’s stubborn, and I don’t think any celebrity will be able to sway her,” the source claimed.

Both George and Amal have yet to comment on these claims. However, with Star Magazine’s history of publishing stories based on its phony and bogus sources, this could be another work of fiction waiting to be debunked. So, avid followers of the couple should take these unverified reports lightly until everything is proven true and correct.

Meanwhile, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin donated more than $1 million for coronavirus relief. Deadline reported that the power couple gave $250,000 each to the Los Angeles Mayors Fund, the SAG-AFTRA FUND and Motion Picture and Television home, where the “Michael Clayton” star sits as one of the board of directors. George and Amal, also, donated $300,000 to Lombardo Italy Region, National Health Service, and Lebanese Food Bank.
