George Clooney is determined to continue his feud with a British tabloid by rejecting an apology from the newspaper’s bosses.
The star slammed Mailonline.com – the website of the Daily Mail newspaper – for publishing a false story about his upcoming marriage to Amal Alamuddin, suggesting his future mother-in-law was unhappy with her daughter’s choice of suitor.
Editors at the tabloid issued an apology this week, insisting the story was “not a fabrication” but accepting it was “inaccurate”.
However, the Hollywood heartthrob is refusing to draw a line under the feud and has publicly rejected the apology.
In a new article for USA Today, published today, he writes, “I thank the Mail for its apology. Not that I would ever accept it, but because in doing so they’ve exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid.”
Clooney is expected to wed human rights lawyer Alamuddin later this year.
