CLOONEY – Amal Alamuddin’s mom doesn’t approve.
George Clooney’s fiancée reportedly didn’t get her mother’s blessing to marry the Hollywood hunk, according to the Daily Mail.
Baria Alamuddin, an editor for Arab newspaper Al Hayat, supposedly wished for her daughter to marry within the family’s strict Lebanese religious sect, close family friends told the gossip site.
Coming from the Druze sect, her family’s beliefs forbid her to marry outsiders, which often results in excommunication and a social boycott.
“You would think Amal has hit the jackpot with George Clooney, but Baria is not happy,” a friend of the family said.
What is this lady’s problem? Her daughter is about to marry the best guy in the whole wide world and she’s upset? I don’t get it. Isn’t the whole goal of parenting to make sure your children have a better life than you? Well it seems to me that Amal has a pretty sweet life. Not only is she a respected lawyer and activist, but she’s engaged to the coolest guy in the goddamn universe. I didn’t want to pull this card but this is obvious jealously on Baria’s part. She’s finally starting to realize her age and how she’ll never get a man like Clooney. I get it. I’m in the same boat. But she needs to suck it up and be happy for her daughter. She’s about to join American royalty.
Batman – George Clooney told Esquire in September he had no “aspirations” to be married with children. That was a month before he was seen with Amal Alamuddin in October.
Could Clooney finally have met his match in Alamuddin, a 36-year-old Oxford-educated British lawyer who reportedly shares the actor’s passion for crusading for international human rights?
There is plenty of speculation that Alamuddin may be the woman who converts Clooney — with two Oscars and a firm hold near the top of Hollywood’s A-list — from confirmed bachelor to family man.
*whatever the opposite of a best friend is.
But, up until today, the identity of the woman in red Clooney dined with at Berners Tavern in London last week was unknown. However, E! has now identified the lucky lady as British lawyer Amal Alamuddin. (A rep for Clooney did not respond to omg!’s request for confirmation.)
Alamuddin, with her long dark hair and exotic looks, is quite different from the “Gravity” star’s most recent ex, blond former pro-wrestler Stacey Kiebler, except for the model-esque physique obviously!
The previously unknown Brit, who attended Oxford University, isn’t afraid of the limelight. Alamuddin specializes in international law, human rights, extradition, and criminal law and is currently representing a very high-profile client: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in his fight against Sweden for extradition.”
Clooooooney. Just when you think he’s pulled out all the stops, dated every beautiful woman on this planet, he pulls the trump card. Just sneaks in and starts dating Julian Assange’s lawyer, who by all accounts seems like the smartest woman in the world. She’s also pretty easy on the eyes. What a stud. It’s Clooney’s world folks, we just have the pleasure of going along for the ride.
