Weeks after mail bomb-making suspect Cesar Sayoc was arrested, a tabloid tried to claim George and Amal Clooney were “desperate” to keep their kids safe from multiple bomb scares that their family had been plagued by. The story was debunked, however, as the inaccuracies with the narratives were pretty evident.

Radar Online, an unreliable entertainment website, concocted the latest fabricated narrative through an article titled, “George Clooney Living In Fear After Terrifying Back-To-Back Bomb Scares.”

In the article, the tabloid tried to insinuate the “MAGA bomber” Sayoc had targeted Clooneys’ Villa Oleandra, located near Lake Como in Italy, without presenting any form of confirmation from authorities proving its claim.

Building on the fact that Sayoc mailed pipe bombs to prominent personalities like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Robert De Niro, last month, and an FBI official saying the former had made a list of 100 other targets, the tabloid tried to link the story to a 2010 incident that took place near Clooneys’ house in Italy.

Gossip Cop pointed out the explosives found in Lake Como dated back to the World War II era, unlike the homemade bombs that Sayoc sent. Moreover, the bombs were removed eight years ago by authorities following their discovery and hence, had nothing to do with the alleged mail bomber last month.

“The bombs were a huge scare for the whole community opens a new window,” the tabloid cited an anonymous local source as saying. “George and Amal’s home backs directly onto the lake.”

In their attempt to further establish a link between Sayoc and Clooney, Radar Online also quoted a tweet posted by the suspected mail bomber following the “Ocean’s Eleven” actor’s bicycle accident in July.

“It a big celebration George Clooney crashes and should have died. We almost had a super celebration prayers answer Hollywood slime of the century died. His time coming … awesome,” the tweet said.

What the tabloid inaccurately reported, however, was the timeline of the tweet on Sayoc’s presently-deleted Twitter account. The magazine said tweet came “on the heels” of the bomb scare that the Clooneys experienced in their Italian mansion — while there has been no fresh bomb scares in the couple’s house after the 2010 incident, which of course, cannot be linked to Sayoc’s tweet in any way.

After claiming baselessly of multiple bomb scare near the couple’s house, the tabloid alleged both George and Amal were “desperate to protect” their twins, Alexander and Ella, amid the growing threat of explosives.

And the evidence cited by the tabloid that the Clooneys could still be targeted by bombs — Roberto Pozzi, the mayor of Lagio (where Lake Como is situated) saying in a statement: “We don’t know of any more bombs in the lake but we can’t rule out that more could be discovered.”

Overall Radar Online concocted a mostly article that was riddled with misinformation and imaginary links that was intended to misguide entertainment readers.
