Tabloid Issues Public Apology to George Clooney Over False Engagement Trouble Rumors

0

George Clooney and his fianceé have won an apology from a U.K. tabloid over the publication of false reports about his fianceé’s family.

The star publicly criticized the story, which suggested his future mother-in-law was opposed to his upcoming marriage to Amal Alamuddin because of religious beliefs, in a column for the USA Today newspaper on Wednesday.

Clooney branded the claims “completely fabricated” and accused editors of Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper and its Internet arm, which originally published the story, of “inciting violence” by exploiting “religious differences where none exist”.

A statement from Daily Mail bosses reads:

“The MailOnline story was not a fabrication but supplied in good faith by a reputable and trusted freelance journalist… We only became aware of Mr Clooney’s concerns this morning and have launched a full investigation. However, we accept Mr Clooney’s assurance that the story is inaccurate and we apologise to him, Miss Amal Alamuddin and her mother, Baria, for any distress caused.”

Clooney is expected to wed the human rights lawyer later this year.
