George Clooney plans to sell his Cabo property to ‘spend more time with Amal’


A few weeks ago, Page Six claimed that George Clooney is currently considering selling off his Como, Italy mansion for an enormous profit. Clooney bought the property in 2002 for $10 million (a steal back then). He currently fields offers of $100 million for the mansion, probably more. Considering George has always loved his Como estate, it seemed like a weird rumor. Like, is George having money problems? Does he “need” to sell the Como property? And now comes this piece of news, also from Page Six: their sources claim that George is definitely going to sell his home in Cabo, Mexico. Hmm….

George Clooney is selling his vacation home in Cabo, Mexico, sources confirmed to Page Six.

We’re told Clooney plans to spend more time with wife Amal at their homes in England and Los Angeles, but the couple will still vacation in Cabo — they’ll stay with neighbors and best friends Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford.

Both Clooney and Gerber’s homes were designed by famed architect Ricardo Legorreta and are the last two homes he designed before he passed away.

[From Page Six]

There’s so much extrapolation to be done with just a few meager sentences. For one, it seems that Amal has never really enjoyed Cabo. They’ve been there together a few times in the past year and their trips were always with Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. Which brings me to my other question: is this Amal’s way of editing George’s close friendship with Cindy and Rande? It feels like it. It feels like George always expects his ladies to be couple-friends with Cindy and Rande and Amal is all “Nope, I’d rather spend time with the cultured people of New York and London.” It does feel that way, right? Like, Cabo is where you go if you want to spend time with Rande, Cindy, Jennifer Aniston and Joe Francis. Amal doesn’t want to be there.

    Something sketchy going on. Page Six is George’s megaphone.

    • Don't kill me I'm French says:

      He needs money

      • Luca76 says:

        Yeah when exactly was his last money making film? Gravity I guess but he wasn’t the star.

      • noway says:

        Maybe you are right. His Lake Como house is for rent under a Luxury retreats rental site. Why is he needing money now? Just a bit weird for someone worth so much money supposedly.

      • frisbeejada says:

        Because his films haven’t been doing well? Or for the forthcoming campaign as whatever his ego most desires.

    • Heather says:

      Page Six =

      It’s hardly scandalous and totally normal for “stars” (or former stars) to consolidate and flip their real estate every 10 years or so to suit their emerging lifestyle and habits.

    • Lillylizard says:

      I think he is making his money from ‘casa amiga’ these days and he brings in about $5 million a year from his coffee adverts , omega, cars or what ever else he is shilling in Europe and Asia at the moment.

  2. Christin says:

    Why is the media not mentioning that there is a villa by the same name and appearance available for luxury rental? A poster on this site (Siri) posted a link a couple of weeks ago.

    Just Google ‘Como villa oleandra’ for the rental site.
    Would he be floating the selling story to cover that it’s now a rental?

    • Christin says:

      To clarify above, the rental appears to be the COMO property, which was also rumored to be possibly for sale, soon.

    • Nanea says:

      It’s not Clooney’s villa, even if it has the same name. This one is in Como, Clooney’s is in Laglio, about 10 miles from the place that is advertised.

  3. Jem says:

    Pictures of this please…I can’t afford it but oh to dream; you KNOW it’s a kick*ss pad!

    Yeah I don’t think its so weird for her to want him to sell off his bachelor pad.

    • nicole says:

      I cant blame Amal for wanting him to sell that, although its a beautiful place, I remember seeing pictures of it in Architectural Digest, its like a boutique hotel. Although it seems strange we are getting all these stories on George selling his holiday properties, I wonder if hes having a bit of a cash problem. Lets face it his big money making days are over, and he seems to have spent alot of money over the past year with the wedding, pr galore, etc. who knows. But I dont blame Amal for wanting to cut ties with Rande and Cindy, they need to spend time together alone, without them tagging along all the time.

    He is renovating a huge estate in England, a home that was on the market a year before he bought it for 16 million. Who knows what he paid for it . He will be living there a lot. And it’s a fortune he’s putting into it. She doesn’t seem like the Mexico type I’m sure what he is spending on their place in England in renovations is costing so much he wants to sell off a place he won’t be at and use the money for their new beautiful estate. I’m envious , living on the banks of the River Thames..

    • Midnightatthemuseum says:

      You won’t be jealous when it gets flooded, which happened to many Thames-side properties last year…perhaps no-one told him?

    • lucy2 says:

      That’s really pretty. It’d be so much fun to have the money to own and renovate a huge old estate like that.
      If they don’t use the Cabo house much, it makes sense to sell and stay at a resort or with friends when they go. I doubt it’s a sign he’s broke. He may not be earning what he once was for films, but I’m sure he’s still doing quite alright.

    • qwerty says:

      Never would I ever swap a house in the tropics for British countryside. Jesus.

  5. minx says:

    I can see where he might not want the Cabo place anymore. Maybe they just don’t want to go there as often..
    The Como place, now that seems like a home he really loved.

  6. boredblond says:

    ..I’d be shocked if there wasn’t an underground tunnel connecting the houses..the whole purpose was to have his and his weekend homes. Not sure I buy this story unless he needs the cash..and I don’t think what she wants spent is his time…fool.

  7. lisa2 says:

    Maybe the place in Mexico was what he was going to sell all alone.. the gossip world got it mixed up..

    Cabo… or Como.. doesn’t take much..because no one does research anymore..

  8. Mimz says:


    And we think Garfleck’s divorce is orchestrated? I still feel this whole marriage thing is orchestrated. Annoys the crap out of me. Some ulterior motive is at work here.

    *whispers – presidential bid in 4 years for clooney*

    • Heather says:

      Hardly. He’s sure pumping up the price of his real estate, though. The market is at a real high with all the new tech zillionaires, low interest rates and not alot of ultra-luxury supply.

    • emmet says:

      Try Senate run in CA for 2016 or 2018

      (also calling BS on AAC making ANY decisions except for the London house – all this is Cloons show)

  9. mary simon says:

    I’m sure Amal can’t wait to spend more time with George.

  10. Pondering thoughts says:

    Selling Cabo?

    Ask Dicaprio.

  11. Lillylizard says:

    It’s also basically a place for his buddies to use when he isn’t there and he is only there about 3 or 4 weeks during the year anyway. There is an annual week long golf vacation with the boys (no wives or GF’s) , Thanks Giving and New Year vacations, same thing every year, year after year. Maybe Amal wants to do other things/other places at that time of year. Doesn’t make much sense to keep it just as a holiday pad for his buddies and families when he can stay in Cindy’s home when he visits Cabo.

    Large Villas on the lake go for around $30-$40 million, his has very large grounds and a small adjascent villa so it would certainly get $50-$60millon but $100mill is really stretching it. The big spenders are going for property on the other nearby lakes theses days as Como has become too touristy and transport is nightmare, basically one road that goes all around the lake, even a small traffic incident and the place is gridlocked.

    That said I don’t think George is selling it , maybe the smaller “Villa Margherita” but not his main home, Amal would go long before Oleandra.

  12. Lil says:

    I think it’s because there is too much history with all his other women at these houses – Amal wants a place where they can create new memories together, not be reminded of the pap pictures she’s seen of all the other women…

    • M says:

      He should sell LA Studio City home,Como villa,and NY hotel suite which am sure he had there more than just Girlfriends BTW Amal lived in NY infamous suite for 3 months.IF that’s case,NOT

      I don’t believe Amal have much say about many things,it is George game

  13. Beezers says:

    Good Heavens, he has really aged in the past year!

  14. Jenn B says:

    George looks terrible in those photos. You can see the pain etched on his face.

  15. serena says:

    These two positively repulse me. End of.

    btw, this fascination around Amal = The Halo Effect

    That’s it, nothing more.

  16. M says:

    If George selling there’s only reason:he is in need of money,he can still owe the Cabo house and never go and spend his time in London or wherever he want,IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE at all that he is selling “vacation house” to spend more time with his partner! who is the stupid who came up with this idea/reason of selling ,it is stupid and silly.
