George Clooney is, allegedly, planning his $1 million funeral amid fears that he could die anytime.
According to Globe, there are concerns over Clooney’s health and age. As such, George Clooney wants to make sure that his wife, Amal Clooney, and their twins wouldn’t have to worry about anything when he passes away.
“There’s a definite sense of mortality as he nears 60, plus he’d had some major medical issues in his life that he’d be foolish to ignore,” the source said.
George Clooney allegedly wants a lavish funeral
The insider said that Clooney is planning to shell out $1 million from his $500 million fortune because he wants a lavish funeral service. The Ocean’s Eleven actor, allegedly, wants his funeral to be attended by his A-list friends. And the service will, allegedly, be held at a huge cathedral similar to London’s Westminster Abbey.
“He’s even planning finer details like what suit he’ll be wearing and the cuff links,” the source said.
George Clooney’s accidents, health
The tabloid concocted a dubious story about Clooney due to a past accident that the actor was involved in. Years ago, the actor suffered from crippling back pain and headaches after he cracked his spine while doing stunts.
Two years ago, Clooney crashed his scooter into a truck. And he was rushed to the hospital following the accident. The incident caused trauma to his pelvis.
As a kid, the actor, reportedly, suffered from Bell’s Palsy. And the source said that this could return anytime and trigger a stroke.
“George is mindful of all this, and he loves his family and wants to protect them. That’s why he’s getting ahead of this stuff before old age and serious illness creep upon him,” the source said.
George Clooney rumors debunked
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. Clooney isn’t planning a $1 million funeral. And the actor doesn’t also think that he could die anytime soon.
While it is true that Clooney has been involved in two major accidents in the past, this doesn’t mean that he’s ready to go.
The tabloid is simply creating a soap opera-like story where there is none based on what Clooney previously said during an interview post-accident.
“I was lying in a hospital bed with an IV in my arm, unable to move, having these headaches where it feels like you’re having a stroke, and for a short three-week period, I started to think, ‘I may have to do something drastic about this.’ You start to think in terms of, you don’t want to leave a mess, so go in the garage, go in the car, start the engine. It seems like the nicest way to do it,” George Clooney said.
