UPDATE: This story was debunked in 2017 by Gossip Cop. As the outlet reported, actor George Clooney did not say he was moving his wife and kids back to Los Angeles from the U.K. for security reasons.
The story came from a false report posted by Life & Style claiming Clooney and his family were moving following a "spate of terror attacks in England." But the truth is, according to Gossip Cop, Clooney never moved away from L.A. A Clooney representative told the outlet, "They've never left L.A. They live in London AND L.A." The website added that "nothing is changing" for the Clooney clan.
The original story below has been updated.
A a now-debunked report from Life & Style magazine claimed that Hollywood superstar George Clooney is going to move his family back to the United States amid a myriad of terrorist activity in England.
Clooney has a home in England and the U.S. with his wife Amal and newborn twins Ella and Alexander. The outlet reported that Clooney and his family are making the move over increased security concerns in the United Kingdom.
"He doesn't feel like Amal and the twins are safe living in the English countryside," a source allegedly told Life & Style. "He's determined to move his family to LA, where he feels much more secure."
"He's waited so long for this family," the supposed Clooney "insider" explained. "He'll do whatever it takes to keep them safe."
According to the source, as reported by the magazine, Clooney hired former members of the U.S. Secret Service recently to "assess all his properties and make recommendations for improvement."
The Oscar winning actor "has been subject to very serious threats in the past," the magazine's "source" claimed, because of his humanitarian efforts in the Darfur region of war-torn Sudan. The magazine also asserted that Amal has been the subject of threats from radical Islamic extremism groups.
The report of the move gained traction after a barrage of terrorist attacks in England.
In May, 22 people were murdered after an Islamic terrorist suicide bomber detonated himself as concert-goers filed out of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, a city north of London. More than 200 others were injured in that attack.
Then in June, three terrorists carried out an attack on the London Bridge. First, they used a van to plow through pedestrians, then they began a knife rampage in a nearby restaurant area. They managed to kill eight people and injure 48 others before being gunned down by police.
