George Clooney got into an accident a few years back. And there were, allegedly, fears that he could’ve suffered from brain damage.
According to National Enquirer, George Clooney suffered from a concussion that could alter his life. An unnamed source that there were no visible injuries after the actor’s scooter smashed into a car. However, this isn’t, allegedly, entirely true.
“George’s family is worried. He’s exhibiting the classic signs of concussion. He’s dizzy and disoriented,” an unnamed source said, as per National Enquirer.
George Clooney could allegedly suffer from amnesia, emotional problems following his accident
To make the tabloid’s story more convincing, they, reportedly, spoke with a neuroscientist from the UCLA Brain Injury Center.
Dr. David Hovda said that he believes Clooney suffered a concussion. And this condition can, reportedly, lead to long-lasting brain damage as a result of chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. However, it is important to note that the doctor didn’t treat Clooney following the accident.
But some patients who suffered concussions can, reportedly, experience amnesia, sleep issues, and emotional problems.
“For example, if he’s sitting around talking, all of a sudden he could start crying or become angry,” he said.
The symptoms may, reportedly, last for months or even years if left untreated.
Amal Clooney allegedly furious at her husband following his accident
“It’s a miracle George is not dead. Amal is furious with him. The twins are barely a year old, and she wants him to think about them. She’s told him people are always getting killed in Italy on scooters. She said, ‘We got married in Italy, we have a home in Italy – and I don’t want you to die in Italy,’” the source said.
A few years have passed since the Ocean Eleven actor’s accident, and he’s doing very well. Shortly after the incident, George Clooney showed his fans that he’s fine when he was even able to make a joke out of what happened.
“I’ve learned that I really actually cannot fly. I learned that lesson really well,” he said. “It was bad. I hit him at 70 miles an hour. Split my helmet in half. It knocked me out of my shoes. It hit hard… and I was just waiting for the switch to turn off ’cause I broke his windshield with my head, and I thought, ‘OK, well, that’s my neck.’ If you get nine lives, I’ve got all of them used up So, I can let go of motorcycle riding for a while,” George Clooney said.
