Actor George Clooney is determined to continue his feud with a British tabloid by rejecting an apology from the newspaper’s bosses.
The Ocean’s Eleven star slammed Mailonline.com – the website of the Daily Mail newspaper – for publishing a false story about his upcoming marriage to Amal Alamuddin, suggesting his future mother-in-law was unhappy with her daughter’s choice of suitor.
Editors at the tabloid issued an apology this week (beg07Jul14), insisting the story was “not a fabrication” but accepting it was “inaccurate”.
However, the Hollywood heartthrob is refusing to draw a line under the feud and has publicly rejected the apology.
In a new article for USA Today, published on Friday (11Jul14), he writes, “I thank the Mail for its apology. Not that I would ever accept it, but because in doing so they’ve exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid.”
Clooney is expected to wed human rights lawyer Alamuddin later this year (14).
