The wrath of George Clooney has arrived!
While George usually remains mum when it comes to the tabloids, the Hollywood heavyweight is lashing out at Daily Mail for a lie that went too far!
The hottie was forced to address the publication's claims that fiancé Amal Alamuddin's mom, Baria, disapproved of their upcoming marriage because of their opposing religious views.
"I want to speak to the irresponsibility of Monday's Daily Mail report. I seldom respond to tabloids, unless it involves someone else and their safety or well being. The Daily Mail has printed a completely fabricated story about my fiancée's mother opposing our marriage for religious reasons. It says Amal's mother has been telling 'half of Beirut' that she's against the wedding. It says they joke about traditions in the Druze religion that end up with the death of the bride. Let me repeat that: the death of the bride."
"None of the story is factually true. Amal's mother is not Druze. She has not been to Beirut since Amal and I have been dating, and she is in no way against the marriage. The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous. We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal."
NOTE TO SELF: Don't mess with Georgie's family!
Anyway, didn't the Daily Mail see Amal getting cozy with her beau's parents? If her mom disapproved then why would she be all smiles???
Shame on them!
