Newspaper Says Sorry After Clooney Slams Story

by Wochit 0:53 mins

Britain's Daily Mail newspaper apologized to George Clooney on Wednesday, for alleging his fiancee's mother opposed the marriage on religious grounds — a story Clooney called both wrong and irresponsible. Clooney is engaged to Beirut-born London lawyer Amal Alamuddin, who comes from a Druze family. The Druze are adherents of a monotheistic religion, and live mainly in Lebanon, Syria and Israel. The article said Amal Alamuddin risked being "cast out of the community" if she wed Clooney, and claimed several women had been murdered for not abiding by strict Druze rules. The Druze are a close-knit community and rarely marry outside their sect. However, in an op-ed rebuttal published in USA Today recently, Clooney denied that his future mother-in-law is a member of the Druze community, nor does she live in Lebanon.
