George Clooney never wants to let a woman get her hands on his ass(ets)


Yet another “Why George Clooney dumped Elisabetta” story! This one involves the words “tight” and “fist”. Gross. So, we’ve already heard how Clooney dumped Elisabetta because she drove him nuts and they were leading separate lives anyway. Then we heard about how Clooney dumped Eli because he’s totally NOT gay, and never fake dates, but he probably does make his girlfriends sign “golden gagging clauses” (I’m sure those clauses involve “tight” and… gross). And I think the last thing we heard was about Clooney dumping Eli because she’s a famewhore who would do anything in front of a camera? We get it, Team Clooney. He dumped her. She deserved it. Enough!

But it’s not enough! Mike Walker over at The Enquirer claims that the real (super-REAL!) reason that Cloons dumped Cans was just because he’s tight-fisted (gross?)… WITH MONEY. It seems Clooney is fine with “taking care” of a girl financially, but he’s never going to let a woman get near his ass(ets).

George Clooney never intended to marry Elisabetta Canalis, or any woman EVER because he’s too tight-fisted! Revealed a close Clooney pal: “What terrifies George is losing any of his hard-earned fortune – estimated at $160 million! He’s extremely generous while he’s in a relationship, but the thought of losing even part of his fortune in a divorce settlement sickens him. George doesn’t even believe in prenups, because there’s usually a legal loophole. His ideal partner would be a woman who’s happy sharing his life without sharing her name on HIS bankbook.”

[From The Enquirer, print edition]

I think there a lot of men like this, especially when you’re talking about a man who grew up with very little and made his money later in life. I mean, think about it: Clooney only started rolling in dough when he was well into his 30s. I don’t blame him for wanting to protect his ass and his assets, but at the end of day, I can’t help but think that his personal priorities are somewhat skewed. You can’t take it with you, you know. Whoever dies with the most doesn’t win. (I say, side-eyeing Clooney’s bankbook)

    Call me crazy, but I just think he doesn’t ever want to be (get?) married again.

    Maybe he got really hurt the last time. Maybe it ended really ugly. He’s not the first person (man or woman) to sour on marriage due to a bad experience, nor will he be the last. (I don’t really think it has anything to do with money, as he seems very generous with his girlfriends. Those vacations, dresses, bikinis aren’t free, ya know?)

    So go ahead, George, you do you.

    Any woman who gets involved with him ought to be on to his MO by now. If not, she gets what she deserves. It’s not like he’s kept his feelings secret.

    (@ Kaiser – LMAO @ the juxtaposition of “fist” and “ass” – girl, you’re funny!)

  2. brin says:

    Well, whatever the reason, he is very upfront about not getting married again, so I would take him at his word.
    Wow, bellaluna, we got the ESP going! Mornin!

  3. SolitaryAngel says:

    Ok he’s just creepy now. I don’t even get why all these women are willing to humiliate themselves for whatever crumbs he throws their way–is it because *some* women just really really enjoy a challenge? Someone please explain it!

  4. embertine says:

    Fair play to him. He knows that a man in his position is going to attract golddiggers, so he’s on the alert for that. If I made millions, hell no would I want some jackass thinking they could put a ring on it and then walk away with half of my cash.

  5. You don't say says:

    First, this story is from the enquirer, so not giving it much credence to begin with.

    Don’t know why Clooney needs reasons for dumping someone. It happens all the time. Yes, he is wealthy and may have issues, but I doubt that is the reason. He has said no to marriage many times. Many women also date and then move on, on a regular basis, (Anniston comes to mind–very similar circumstances with failed marriage, multiple partners afterwards).

  6. Cherry says:

    I don’t buy the whole ‘he got really hurt the last time he was married’ explanation, I don’t think it has anything to do with being traumatized, he just want to have a good, no-strings-attached time with much younger ladies. Can’t blame him, really. And it’s not like he’s lying about it, either.

    Anyway, as much as I like each and every ‘Yet another “Why George Clooney dumped Elisabetta” story!’, this one seems like scraping the bottom. I mean, it’s obvious that George’s ideal partner is NOT ‘a woman who’s happy sharing his life without sharing her name on HIS bankbook’. If that’s true, why the hell would he be dating trashy famewhores who’ll do anything for money?

  7. dleen says:

    very smart of him

  8. Cherry says:

    @6. Embertine: ‘If I made millions, hell no would I want some jackass thinking they could put a ring on it and then walk away with half of my cash.’
    *cough* Jessica Simpson *cough*

  9. Quest says:

    It is his ass(ets) and he can choose to spend it how, where, when and on who he wishes.

  10. Maritza says:

    He should at least secure an heir, adopt a kid or do what Ricky Martin did. If he stays alone he’ll feel awfully lonely.

  11. vv says:

    I feel kind of bad for the guy, he clearly does not want to get married and I can respect that. I know plenty of men and women who do not see the need and are not interested remotely in marriage, the kids, the white picket fence…

    So how hard is it to find another woman who also doesn’t want to get married? I actually thought his latest girlfriend was such a great catch just because she didn’t seem to care. She wasn’t conventional in the sense that she was looking for a man to marry and settle down with.

    Seems to me she pushed and believed she might have been the one to change that by the last interview she gave and I have to admit as soon as she broached the marriage topic I saw warning flags going up! I cringed for her.

    Imagine he wasted how many months/years with this woman probably thinking they were on the same wavelength, that they were of like mind and had an understanding…only to realize that wasn’t the case! And to have to suffer reading about it in print!

    I dunno I guess I feel bad for both parties in this case but still, there has to be at least one woman out there who won’t put the gears to him, by making him believe they are cool and accepting of who he is, only to turn around and start talking about marriage and the like.

  12. Bubulle says:

    I’m not buying this excuse. If he is so concerned about his money why does he keep dating those cheap talentless famewhores. He could date someone who’s as successfull as he is.

  13. Lizzy says:

    I think “he doesn’t want to get married” is a viable excuse for why he cycles through women every 24-36 months.

    However, i am always amused with the “protect my fortune” line. He has $160m. More money than he can spend in his lifetime assuming he never earns another dime.

    At what point does protecting ones fortune, lead ones behavior instead of merely being a check on ones behavior?

    And if he is so worried about “his fortune” perhaps he should date a women with her own fortune and professional success. However, that women will likely have a mind, opinion and agenda of her own. Don’t think he would like that much.

  14. Dea says:

    This is such a fake story nad can’t believe you fall in those magazine trap stories. He dated Julia Roberts, Renne Zellweger and others that at the time had more money than him. Did he dump them because they went after his money or he was afraid he was going to loose his money if he married to rich women? And yes, George told his close friend about the real reason he does not want to get married and the close source made it public. Horrible story. Magazines just need to come up with something sometimes.

  15. aenflex says:

    His money is not what I would be after. Jaysus.

  16. C.Lynn says:

    Clooney has lots of family who he is very close to. He probably wants them to have his fortune when he dies and I’m sure they’ll make sure he doesn’t die alone. He’s very close to his sister, Ada, and to his niece and nephew (he adores them). He also has strong ties to his cousins. The Clooney clan is a large and tight-knit bunch. I’ll bet his personal fortune will go to his philanthropy (which he is very passionate about) and to taking care of his very large family. Sounds like money well spent to me.

  17. embertine says:

    Cherry, exactamundo!

    Hell, I’d probably happily not-marry him. The thought of the big white dress and all of that brings me out in hives anyway.

  18. garvels says:

    He grew up in the business his aunt being Rosemary Clooney and his father was type of Radio/TV host. He probably never had to beg for roles and he probably had the inside track on other roles. He is probably just another member of the Hollywood super elite who knows all f the tax loophole tricks. I always found him to be an arrogant insincere a-hole. If he doe something charitable he makes sure everyone knows about it.

  19. J O'C says:

    At least he’s honest about not wanting marriage and kids. Some guys use the possibility of marriage just to string a woman along, having no intention whatsoever of marrying.

    As for holding on to his money, his priorities aren’t *that* skewed: He started/funded Not On Our Watch to stop genocide in the Sudan and does a lot of other charity work besides.

  20. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    It would be interesting to see George Cloooney with a woman closer to his age like Lisa Niemi, the widow of Patrick Swayze.

  21. really says:

    Well since ole George is a friend of tinkerbell, he need not worry….. it will go to one of his trannys or one of his young studs. He need not sweat.

    And this is why ladies if you are attracted to the idiot type, go for a man like Prince Albert…… that way at least you come out financially secure after being bothered with a complete idiot!

  22. stacia says:

    See, I believe this. Why? He has been married before and has a rather nasty divorce.

    1. Talia Balsam – When he and his ex-wife divorced (remember this was BEFORE his ER/BATMAN&ROBIN paychecks), she literally took most of what he had. And I’m talking little things, like furniture too. They spent months and months hashing out the divorce settlement and with the stress of it all, ended up with ulcers. (According to HIM via interview)

    2. Celine Balitran – He was with this one for more than two years. His last “real” relationship according to most die-hard fans. She was a waitress that HE moved from France to his home the US and when they broke up, she sued him for palimony since he had completely supported her for years. She ended up with several millions, a home, I believe a car (dont quote me on that one) and more. That spiel he gives about feeling bad about uprooting her life and giving her a house and visa, wasn’t so benevolent. That relationship ended badly.

    It makes sense. That and the fact that I think he has been burned by these two rather “permanent” relationships to the point that he now swears off marriage.

    It’s not that he’s against marriage or is an eternal bachelor. It’s just that he didn’t like what he experienced when he had to commit more “seriously.”

  23. Hollowdoll says:

    Maybe he realizes the type of woman he’s attracted to don’t make good long term partners so why would he want to marry them? Seems like a smart decision to me if you are attracted to golddiggers and famewhores. Know your limitations and accept them.

  24. curleque says:

    @stacia: Most divorces are as ugly as Clooney’s, if not uglier. He can thank his lucky stars there were no children involved. When a couple, married or co-habitating, splits up all those little things like furniture are subject to ridiculous, agonizing, ulcer-inducing scrutiny.

    He really should try dating a woman close to his caliber in career or money… but he probably prefers having the power in his relationship… thus, his last famewhore.

  25. Pink says:

    Um, all this website does now is reiterate stories from the Enquirer?! Really?!

  26. Anonymous says:

    I prefer to have my own money. When you take somebody else’s money, they think they have to the right to tell you how to run your life.

  27. fabgrrl says:

    Did he really grow up with “nothing”? I know his dad wasn’t super-famous, but he was kind of well known. And his aunt was quite a big star. I don’t feel like little Georgie was living hand-to-mouth.

  28. You don't say says:

    To be clear, Not On Our Watch is NOT only Clooney’s organization. It is a joint project funded by Clooney, Pitt, Damon, Don Cheadle and the producer of the Ocean’s movies (Can’t think of his name). They have all participated in fundraising and the group makes the decisions on how the money is spent.

    For whatever reason, Clooney and others like to give him sole credit for a joint project. Not fair actually as it robs the group of being given credit for all of the work that it has done in Darfur.

  29. mln76 says:

    Seems like people in Clooney’s camp are going overboard to cover up the obvious. If he was really concerned with keeping his ass(ets) in line he’d date heiresses and successful business magnets instead of waitresses and Italian model/prostitutes.

  30. yeah right says:

    i don’t get this guy he is not attractive to me, looks like desperate Dan from the comic book with his big ass chin.. each to their own he just does not do it for me whatsoever..

  31. MarenGermany says:

    he is totally right. It is HIS money not hers.
    The only reason I see for a woman to get a share of her husbands money after a divorce is if she gave up her job, raising his children, and not being able to work again because she is too long out of the job, or something like that.

  32. Eleonor says:

    @mln76: my thought,if he wants to save his money why does he date only zlist famewhore gold diggers?

  33. guilty pleasures says:

    I reiterate, GEORGE, I’M OVER HERE!!!
    None of our business, whom he dates or for how long. I respect his talent, period.
    If he’s gay, again, none of our business, with all of the judgement and speculation on that front, and all of the fallout for those who come out or are outed, why the &*%$ would anyone trust the lumpen proletariate with their private selves?
    And I have exactly $4.35, and woe to the fool who thinks he can wander in and take half!! If I were full of money I’d be even more careful that some lazy mo-fo didn’t swoop in and steal it. Get your own mega successful career!!

  34. Granger says:

    Used to love him, but I’m starting to think he’s on a weird power trip and only wants to date young, financially-immature women who rely on him for everything. But then when they get too comfortable with him and his money, he dumps them. SMARMY.

    If he’s really serious about never getting married again, why does he insist on dating women in their late 20s/early 30s, who in all likelihood haven’t yet figured out WHAT they want? He needs to date someone in her 40s who, like him, has been-there-done-that and doesn’t want to do it again either.

  35. Thea says:

    Older he gets the more freakish and perverted he looks. He will never be with a woman (ha ha) his age because of wisdom. And a woman more powerful can afford attorneys and doesnt care about signing clauses, and keeping her mouth shut. She would tell the truth about him and his activities. So, I still think he is gay, and thats fine, come out already, but he will never marry and never have children so what use if the $160 million for. You can only buy so many pigs, and trannies.

  36. Hmmm says:

    @yeah right

    Or Dudley Do Right especially when he got his huge plastic teeth

  37. the original bellaluna says:

    @ stacia & curleque – See, that’s why I said “maybe it ended really ugly” as well.

    Most divorces denigrate into “Well you’re not getting the video games that go with that Play Station until I get my mix-tapes and CD’s” and “OF COURSE I got the Disney videos and the newer car (and the payments that have to be made to keep it) you A$$HOLE. I have the kids and it was MY car we traded in to get the new one!” kind of situation.

    *ahem* Speaking from personal experience.

  38. Aqua says:

    Ever since the National Enquirer broke the story about the John Edwards affair they feel like they have the same credibility as an award willing news paper.When in fact nothing could be further that the truth.The Enquirer will always be known as a gossip rag.

    If this story is true I don’t blame him. It’s still a lot to lose.

  39. elaine says:

    Grew up with very little? His father was a successful newscaster for many years. He grew up in an affluent family. And while he was “suffering” and trying to make it in Hollywood, he first lived in his aunt’s (Rosemary Clooney) mansion. Now, THAT’S suffering.

  40. Turtle Dove says:

    IF this is true, then he’s being smart in protecting his assets. He’s worked hard, so why should a little chippie be able to take a cut after dating him?

  41. Jules says:

    He has made it perfectly clear that he does not want to get married again. Then the next bar fly comes along, things go well for 2 years she becomes big headed and convinced she’s the ‘one’ and he dumps her. Repeat, rinse.

  42. Rhiley says:

    I think Leo DiCaprio is another one who has the same worry. Word is is that he is very very cheap, which honestly, I find kind of attractive. I mean,not so cheap that you seem like you have some kind real hangup, but I respect people who keep an eye on their bank accounts and want to be finacially secure in the future. At least Leo’s ladies have their own money. Clooney’s never seem to.

  43. Ashley says:

    I’m not saying his family was wealthy, but I doubt he grew up poor. Isn’t his dad famous in Kentucky for some tv thing? I don’t think he had to go without as a kid so that argument doesn’t make any sense.

    Why don’t they just say he’s greedy? I mean that’s what it is right. He’ll be damned if a woman ever touches his money? Now that’s it mentioned I kind of get that vibe.

    Like others have said if he was so worried he would stop dating cocktail waitresses (but he really loves the sleaze in a girl huh?). He once dated a wealthy Italian Countess I believe so it’s not like he can’t get women who have their own money.

  44. REALIST says:

    I buy it. He wants to spend HIS money on what matters to him-e.g. the Sudan, other humanitarian causes, his family, and yes, la dolce vita (without the Italian GF baggage).
    I just divorced 4 years ago, and I am now 47. I am not a hottie (although I can dress the part of the cougar pretty well) and I don’t have a fortune, so no one is banging down my door. Hoever, IF I ever get in a serious relationship, (children will not be involved), why (re) marry? Why muddy the financial waters? In the olden days, marriage was little more than a contract-why not recognize it for what it (still) is.
    Re, to young ‘uns approaching marriage, children change the picture. Many states do not have progressive laws with regard to custody and visitation of children of unmarried parents. I have two sweet boys with my ex, 9 and 11, and after some initial turbulence, things are working out with the co-parenting. Nevertheless, it’s good to know the Family Court is there to make sure that all goes smoothly.

  45. william says:

    As a guy I strongly sympathize with Clooney. While I certainly don’t make the millions like he does, I still consider myself to make a good chunk of change.

    As such I can sense what he’s thinking, that irregardles of the fact that he’s made so much money he’ll never spend it all even if he wanted to, it no doubts irks him to know that should somebody divorce and “win” his money in a settlement, seeing that person spend said money on future boyfriends, husbands, cruises, expensive clothing, etc., would be insane.

    I sympathize with that because the LAST thing I ever want is to pay palimony/alimony to somebody who will turn around and spend my hard-earned money on her new date with her boyfriend. Who needs that nonsense.

    Plus he no doubt knows the legality of “common law” marriage, probably to the letter, and thus dumps his girlfriends well before they can even claim going beyond X number of relationship years.

  46. Chris says:

    Why is he wearing a Nike top?

  47. april says:

    I like the Nike shirt.

    I don’t like the way George treats women anymore. I hope they all have a good time with him and start dumping him.

    Who knows if the Enquirer story is even true anyway.

  48. crtb says:

    Now he sounds cheap and immature. He has more money than he could spend in five lifetimes. If he is worried aout a woman taking his money then he should start dating equally sucessful and rich women. Not little girls who are young enough to be his granddaughters and who are fame whores & gold diggers. He si really becomming an a-hole if these stories are true. Money IS NOT a reason you don’t get married. What a jerk!

  49. Annie_Grey says:

    Was good looking once-upon-a-time, but he’s so full of himself, now. Conceitedness is not attractive. Neither is a superiority complex.
