He must really like her

Lainey’s down for the count after essentially 24 hours of Olympic coverage and blogging and this one can’t wait. Forgive the “newsy” feel. I’ll try to come back to my roots and answer the question “fake or real” or something along those lines a bit later.
The Times of London is reporting that George Clooney is looking to sell his Lake Como villa and the Beckhams are potential buyers. According to the report, he and the Italian Queen are growing tired of the paparazzi invading their privacy.
Said Clooney after pictures were taken of a guest at the villa last summer: "I don’t know about the law in the United States, but in Italy it’s illegal for photographers to climb over my wall and to take long lens pictures of a 13-year-old girl in her bedroom…I draw the line of privacy at that.”
There have of course been many shots taken of Clooney and his guests at the villa since he purchased it for a reported US$10 million in 2002. And he has been critical of paparazzi in the past but as Lainey has discussed, he seems to have been in control of when and where he is photographed. So it’s surprising to me that he’d take such a drastic measure and sell the place over the issue.
However, the report goes on to say that Canalis was “furious and exasperated” over more photos and that the paps “made (their) life(s) Hell.”
So maybe that explains it. I’ve done some pretty dumb things for girls in the past so I understand. For instance, I once jumped off a really high tower in a playground to impress when I was 10 and chipped my front teeth on a slide when I landed. Maybe selling a lakeside dream mansion for a girl is just a bit more committed. Only a little though. I have a crown there now.
Splash has since posted pictures of a rumoured next residence also in Italy. Not bad. I suppose.
