Is George Clooney’s wife packing her bags and divorcing him?
George & Amal Clooney’s relationship has been on the rocks for a while. The celebrity couple has been going through couples counseling for two years, but their marriage might be the latest quarantine casualty. Tabloids have claimed the couple will be getting a divorce since their wedding on Sept. 27, 2014, but the rumors might come to fruition soon.
Thanks to new reporting, insiders close to the couple claim they’re still on the rocks, and couples counseling isn’t working. George & Amal Clooney’s relationship is in a tailspin, and it seems like COVID is the likely cause.
According to a source, George & Amal Clooney are frequently at each other’s throats. Is COVID-19 going to be the straw that broke the camel’s back? Will the celebrity couple get a divorce this time? Here’s everything we know.
George & Amal Clooney have been living at George’s Los Angeles home through the COVID-19 quarantine with their twins Ella & Alexander. George is renovating the home to make his bachelor pad family-friendly. The renovations include a play cottage for the twin, villas for the live-in help, an outdoor pizza oven, a cable railroad, and a water fountain. In total, the extra work costs roughly $1 million.
The construction forced the Clooneys into a small portion of the property, and George is fed up with Los Angeles. George wants the family to travel to Lake Como in Italy while Amal disagrees. Amal has never been a fan of L.A. but thinks it’s safer for the family to stay during the quarantine.
It might be a strange statement about a married couple, but George & Amal Clooney have never spent this much time together. Their busy schedules keep the two apart, and the quarantine forced the couple to spend more time together in smaller living quarters.
George’s desire to go to Lake Como wasn’t their first argument. George & Amal also fought over where to raise their twins. George wants to raise them in Los Angeles so he can be closer to family & friends. Amal wants to raise them in the UK. The renovations were to prepare for the family’s eventual return to California but are still ongoing as of September.
According to a source, George & Amal fought during a couples counseling session. The fight got so bad, Amal walked out of the office. A source for Life & Style claims the incident was “the final nail in the coffin for George. He is tired of trying to paper over the cracks and is ready to pull the plug. He’s made it clear to Amal that he wants out.”
The source explained couples counseling isn’t working, adding, “After desperately trying to save their relationship, they’ve hit a wall. And friends fear there’s no going back.”
One source claimed Amal was fuming when she found out George wanted a divorce. She doesn’t like to lose and sees divorce as a loss –she’s humiliated by it. Scared is a strong word, but George is no a match for Amal, an internationally famous human rights lawyer, during an argument. He’s joked the only way to beat Amal in an argument was at arm wrestling.
The Clooney’s response
Neither the Clooneys nor their reps have addressed the new round of divorce rumors. It’s hard to tell what’s going on in the relationship. If George & Amal’s relationship has been on the rocks, enough to go to couples counseling, why would George invest $1 million to renovate his home to be more family-friendly?
According to the source, “They’re both heartbroken over the way the marriage turned out. Neither wanted or expected to be in this place after six years.” The next step for George is Amal is to either get a divorce or deny the rumors.
Time heals all wounds, and George & Amal’s friends believe the couple needs to spend some time apart. Gossip Cop debunked the rumors of George’s solo trip to Lake Como if Amal & the twins didn’t accompany him, but maybe that is the best decision for the relationship.
I read it was the story of gjislaime maxwell boasting about an encounter she had with George at a party some years ago which appalled Amal and that was the final nail in the coffin .October 19, 2020
Room for Meghan now?October 20, 2020
Some couples go to counselling to keep a good marriage on track – its not just for those in crisis.October 20, 2020
First of all I had no idea George was even married and with two of the most adorable babies. Its obvious that the two are just not compatible and just do not have the same ideas and desires for their own future. Life is too short. You live and love and get married and learn the hard wayOctober 20, 2020
Its a shame but its life. Had I gotten the chance to be George s wife I would have given it that college try because ladies he is quite the handsome man.
The pandemic has been a stressful time for many relationships, being together in each others company for 24 hours a day. I think if you have an interest or hobby which you can do that will give you time too do on your own, whether it be long or short period of time sometimes this can be a great tonic for anyone. You would not spend lots of money doing alterations if there was nothing to save. I think that what is happening with the couple will pass and that is their own business and no one elses .October 20, 2020
Meghan, come on, he’s a near neighbour, run over with cookies and a shoulder to cry on!! I’m sure he’s got lots more money than Harry and maybe he could teach you how to act?October 20, 2020
If couples truly want to stay married then they do. Arguing is pointless. If they each have to be right then that’s more important than their relationship and it’s not going to work out.October 20, 2020
So many PR network spooks posting. LOL.October 21, 2020
Sham marriage with no licence. Publicity arrangement. Clooney is NOT even the father of the gargoyle Amal Alamuddin’s twins. FACT.
