Amal Alamuddin Law Firm Confirms George Clooney Engagement, Sends Congratulations

Let there be no more debate or denials:

George Clooney really is engaged to Amal Alamuddin.

This major news made the Internet rounds over the weekend, but now a very reliable source has come out and confirmed that Alamuddin really has managed to lock down the world's most eligible bachelor.



Alamuddin's law firm just released the following statement:

"The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms. Amal Alamuddin, a member of Chambers, and Mr. George Clooney on their engagement to be married."

Lawyer Geoffrey Robertson added that Alamuddin is a "brilliant and passionate defender of human rights" who is respected by her colleagues, while chief executive Robin Jackson told Reuters

"She brings a bright light to everything she is involved in, and I am so delighted at her happy news."

Whys everyone always giving shit to Clooney for not wanting to settle down? He was married before. Good for him for not trying to rush a second mediocre marriage .

This lady sounds amazing. I bet it'll last since he seems to have waiting for the right one.
sanditar 28th-Apr-2014 04:09 pm (UTC)
I don't care for him and totally agree with this.
oblivious_frog 28th-Apr-2014 04:10 pm (UTC)
Totally agree with this.
She's incredible.
vivalakeyana 28th-Apr-2014 04:11 pm (UTC)
Mte. Something, something, consenting adults...
crash31 28th-Apr-2014 04:13 pm (UTC)
mte. I think everyone, even outside of hollyweird should take their time to fully comprehend what 'till death do us part' truly means before getting married. Divorce is by no means the end of the world, but I'm sure it's easier to avoid that mess by waiting until your sure.
xtinkerbellax 28th-Apr-2014 04:14 pm (UTC)
IA but this doesn't seem rushed? They haven't even been dating a year. Maybe they'll be engaged for a while though, who knows.
tadashee 28th-Apr-2014 04:32 pm (UTC)
yeah, it does seem really quick especially for people with careers that will likely keep them apart for long amounts of time. i feel like you would want to know how that feels long term before committing, but maybe that is what they want? or they are expecting. Lol.
manicpixiegirl 28th-Apr-2014 04:33 pm (UTC)
It does, but I think things can move a lot faster when you're older. I think you're just more honest and upfront about what you want in a relationship.
megalixer 28th-Apr-2014 05:30 pm (UTC)
IMO it's different when people are in their mid-30s and beyond, IME people who get married a bit later in life have a better idea of who they are and what they want out of a spouse and can move a little faster without necessarily being a hot mess about it.

The heart wants what the heart wants!!
crazyventures 28th-Apr-2014 04:59 pm (UTC)
I agree. I think it's better to wait until you know you're sure.

I just went to a wedding in January where the bride wasn't officially divorced until a few months before the wedding lol. Mess tbh
buncha_cruncha 28th-Apr-2014 05:07 pm (UTC)
MTE.

buffy_usa 28th-Apr-2014 07:58 pm (UTC)
same.

I respect him for saying he wasn't good at marriage the first time and avoided it until he felt like he could respect it. his parents have set a high bar I'm sure there was pressure to measure up. there's nothing wrong with serial dating I don't know why he got the hate or ridicule/
justyourfaceha 28th-Apr-2014 10:34 pm (UTC)
I agree with this. Why rush these things?
westamp 28th-Apr-2014 10:40 pm (UTC)
Just like Warren Beatty. He and Annette Bening have been going strong for years.

Now Michelle Pffeifer and Nicole Kidman can go and collect their money from George.
crash31 28th-Apr-2014 04:19 pm (UTC)
I'm just shocked it took him this long to find someone that had a real career and didn't necessarily 'need' him, I expected more from his circle of friends.
liddlebins 28th-Apr-2014 04:23 pm (UTC)
this tbh
i'm sure that is far more attractive than 'putting in the time' and 'earning the ring' etc.
maidenhell 28th-Apr-2014 04:24 pm (UTC)
Why call the women "freeloaders"? He clearly had a type before. Is he not responsible for his choices or does witchcraft still exist?
bnmc2005 28th-Apr-2014 05:01 pm (UTC)
Thank you.
29feb 28th-Apr-2014 05:19 pm (UTC)
seriously. he just wanted the sex seaux..........

buffy_usa 28th-Apr-2014 08:00 pm (UTC)

I feel like he meets people and becomes genuinely attracted but there's always strings attached at the end of the day. I imagine this makes a lot of people (men or women) in that stratosphere skeptical of their paramour's true intentions.

this woman has a serious career not in need of his fame fortune or connections. if she's with him, she's with him for real, not for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
justyourfaceha 28th-Apr-2014 10:36 pm (UTC)
LOL I was going to say something similar but didn't want to sound mean. I mean models make money. But yeah, I agree with you overall.
yacrazybeatle 28th-Apr-2014 04:09 pm (UTC)
Lol, poor kiebs
tbe 28th-Apr-2014 04:15 pm (UTC)
She's married and pregnant. I doubt she cares too much.
crash31 28th-Apr-2014 04:19 pm (UTC)
It's George Clooney....she cares.
liddlebins 28th-Apr-2014 04:24 pm (UTC)
really? i haven't really followed her post-clooney

i'm sure she cares somewhat. she's human after all
yacrazybeatle 28th-Apr-2014 04:29 pm (UTC)
she got pregnant, and then got married. who knows how excited she was about that
u_aint 28th-Apr-2014 04:09 pm (UTC)
Alamuddin really has managed to lock down the world's most eligible bachelor.

smh
mortimer123 28th-Apr-2014 04:11 pm (UTC)
LOL. I know. I wonder who voted?
theoryofwar 28th-Apr-2014 04:22 pm (UTC)
Probably People magazine.
mspopstar 28th-Apr-2014 04:49 pm (UTC)
I am always amused at these double standards. Jennifer Aniston is DESPERATE to get Justin to marry her!!!, but good old George is still the world's most eligible bachelor

Like bye
winegums 28th-Apr-2014 04:59 pm (UTC)
yeah, like freaking Kofi Annan's advisor/top-flight human rights lawyer is all about nothing but 'locking down' a man.
espressotorte 28th-Apr-2014 09:00 pm (UTC)
IA, its not a contest.
superdogbiter 28th-Apr-2014 04:09 pm (UTC)
she can stand on her own feet and don't even need george
what a cool lady
mortimer123 28th-Apr-2014 04:10 pm (UTC)
That was fast. Didn't he start dating her last week? It's seems like last week.

aotearoagal 29th-Apr-2014 09:07 am (UTC)
October - or so I've been told.
vivalakeyana 28th-Apr-2014 04:10 pm (UTC)
Lol there was someone in another Clooney post over the weekend, that was all "HE SAID HE WOULD NEVER GET MARRIED AGAIN. THIS ISN'T TRUE," or something like that, but all caps. Like, sis, people can't change their minds? I mean...he ain't with your ass, so simmer down.

Anyway, congrats. Amal sounds like a great person.
skyler_white_yo 28th-Apr-2014 04:18 pm (UTC)
LOL at the delusional. Not a fan of Clooney's but she seems really awesome.
liddlebins 28th-Apr-2014 04:34 pm (UTC)
lmao hahahahahaaa

awesome
paarycia 28th-Apr-2014 06:44 pm (UTC)
lol yeah, some really didn't want this to be true.
fenchurchly Re: hear her talk:28th-Apr-2014 04:15 pm (UTC)
She's the female Mark Darcy.

George is a lucky man.
neverhft Re: hear her talk:28th-Apr-2014 04:23 pm (UTC)
oh Mark Darcy...I'm flustered just thinking about him. My first sex dream ever was actually about him...

niyakarma Re: hear her talk:28th-Apr-2014 04:28 pm (UTC)
omg yes!
tracygee Re: hear her talk:28th-Apr-2014 04:31 pm (UTC)
OMG...she totally is. That comparison is killing me. So true!

sher_locked0 Re: hear her talk:28th-Apr-2014 04:23 pm (UTC)
She's highly intelligent and beautiful. Photos don't really do her justice.
longlonglong12 Re: hear her talk:28th-Apr-2014 04:59 pm (UTC)
She seems so intelligent and well spoken. and wow, I thought she was beautiful in photos but she is STUNNING in motion
spankmypirate Re: hear her talk:28th-Apr-2014 05:14 pm (UTC)
Goddammit, *I* want to marry her.
lemmonsugar 28th-Apr-2014 04:10 pm (UTC)
but she ain't cute
ilikeandrewbird 28th-Apr-2014 04:12 pm (UTC)
Yep, she isn't Stacy Keebler cute

She's an absolutely stunningly gorgeous women
maria1221 28th-Apr-2014 04:16 pm (UTC)
Now sis...

She's not stunningly gorgeous but she doesn't have to be: she's accomplished, educated, seems like a genuinely good person, and has her own life outside him.

She's too good for him tbh.
caravels 28th-Apr-2014 04:55 pm (UTC)
mte she is really stunning
cordyceps 28th-Apr-2014 04:15 pm (UTC)
It's awesome that you can reduce this intelligent, passionate, motivated woman to 'not cute'.
radar 28th-Apr-2014 04:16 pm (UTC)

tuggernuts 28th-Apr-2014 04:22 pm (UTC)
not that her looks strictly matter, but she's actually quite stunning

maidenhell 28th-Apr-2014 04:27 pm (UTC)
I'm shocked that people don't find her attractive. I think she's gorgeous. Lush, thick hair. Beautiful, strong face. The definition of beauty needs to be extended by some people, it seems. I realize it's subjective but damn...
shilohninejulia 28th-Apr-2014 04:31 pm (UTC)
men usually don't marry super attractive women. they might want to fuck the "hot" ones but when it comes to settling down for life they're usually looking for something more than solely looks
lvashkov 28th-Apr-2014 04:32 pm (UTC)
are you blind?
liddlebins 28th-Apr-2014 04:39 pm (UTC)
um

have you googled her? she's gorgeous and has a siiiiick body
parker_hallie 28th-Apr-2014 04:51 pm (UTC)
you clearly haven't watched the video up above - she's intelligent, well-spoken, has a beautiful hair cape and although it hardly matters, she is gorgeous
you sound mad
bestcoast 28th-Apr-2014 05:09 pm (UTC)
she is a beautiful Lebanese women, sorry your taste in cute runs towards plastic Hollywood types :'(
lovepeace_soul 28th-Apr-2014 05:35 pm (UTC)
And looks can only take you so far. Men who arent assholes dont only care about how their gf/wife looks. They would love to fuck the ditzy blonde but when it comes down to it. They wont marry her.
somerset 28th-Apr-2014 05:40 pm (UTC)
oops at you showing your racist ass. keep stanning for mediocre white girls
biebusfan 28th-Apr-2014 05:53 pm (UTC)
she's actually very very pretty
she's got a very symmetrical perf face, big lips big eyes, square jawline etc. shes perf.

shamesluts 28th-Apr-2014 06:12 pm (UTC)
she's gorgeous in motion though
nutmegdealer 28th-Apr-2014 04:11 pm (UTC)
watch them have a bunch of kids.
ilikeandrewbird 28th-Apr-2014 04:12 pm (UTC)
I can see him having kids and being an excellent father
sastra_fuss 28th-Apr-2014 04:12 pm (UTC)
I really fucking hate George Clooney for what we are about to go through. Now everyone and their fucking grandma is going to be bashing other women for their looks and career choice because George didn't put a ring on it. Why do people stay comparing women when it's not needed.
ilikeandrewbird 28th-Apr-2014 04:13 pm (UTC)
WhAt?
actalive 28th-Apr-2014 04:15 pm (UTC)
it's not george clooney you should hate for this tho
sastra_fuss 28th-Apr-2014 04:19 pm (UTC)
Meh, easier to hate George.
xtinkerbellax 28th-Apr-2014 04:16 pm (UTC)
I've seen a bunch of people saying she's way too good for him because she's a lawyer. Like, she seems like a great woman but I didn't know people held lawyers to such a high esteem, there are plenty of shitty lawyers out there lol.
mistress_f 28th-Apr-2014 04:17 pm (UTC)
uhm what?
cinderela_story 28th-Apr-2014 04:18 pm (UTC)
THIS. SO. MUCH. Now everyone else will be categorized as "beneath him" simply because his other relationships didn't work out and this one did.
