The celebrity pair’s marriage is on the rocks after fights over fame and their kids
After four-and-a-half years of marriage and two kids, the fairytale romance between George and Amal Clooney has taken a sad turn. Yes, among those who know them “it’s no secret that George and Amal have a shaky marriage”, an insider tells Life & Style mag.
There were better days in the past – for a long time, George could not believe his luck. “I’ve never been happier in a relationship,” the perennial bachelor gushed 18 months after wedding Amal, the glamorous British human rights attorney who’s the mother of his children, twins Ella and Alexander.
But now, following months and months of fights over family, fame and clashing ambitions, a frustrated George has told Amal their marriage is over, the source tells. “George gave it his all,” they note. “But it wasn’t enough.”
It was after George, e, 57, and Amal, 41, became parents in June 2017 that things got complicated.
“These two look great together, but they were never a great match,” says s the insider. “She’s questioned his motives... ives... and said some really hateful things in the heat of an argument that she can never take back. George has hit below the belt, too, calling Amal spoiled and stuck-up.”
George’s struggle to give up his bachelor ways – from staying out late with the boys to flirting with women – has also been a hot-button issue for the pair.
“They disagree all the time,” says the informant. “Their golden rule of never going to bed angry has gone right out the window. In fact,
it’s g gotten to the point where they’ve basically been living separate lives.” George and Amal have tried to salvage their relationship. “They’ve been to therapy and... marriage boot camp,” says a spy. “But it brought so many issues to the surface, it ended up doing more harm than good.”
With her legal mind, Amal stands to win big in a divorce settlement, given George’s $700 million fortune. “She may very well play dirty,” explains the insider. “She’s in the driver’s seat here, not George. She will take him to the cleaners...”
Amal is close to Cindy Crawford, wife of George’s bestie Rande Gerber George has been spending more and more time away from home SHE’S LEANING ON CINDY!
George pulled the plug on his previous marriage to actress Talia Balsam, too
