There have been rumors making the rounds that George Clooney might be getting a divorce. This is, in actual fact, not surprising as he has been involved in so many relationships from 1987 till date. Clooney dated popular actress Kelly Preston and married Talia Balsam in 1989. The marriage lasted only about four years before they split. He went on to date another actress Ginger Lynn Allen, Celine Balitran, a French TV personality, Lisa Snowdon and Renee Zellweger. He didn't stop there. In 2002, he continued with his relationship tour with Krista Allen, dated TV personality, Sarah Larson and broke up with her about a year later.
In 2009, we saw the coming together of Clooney and Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis only for them to split up again. Stacy Keibler of WWE was next as they also had a thing for two years. He finally became engaged to the British-Lebanese lawyer, Amal Alamuddin in 2014 whom he later married on the 27th of September, 2014. That's a very long chain of relationships and a populated list of Clooney's exes. From all indications, it appears to seem that George Clooney doesn't fancy relationship commitments for more than two years.

The actor, George Clooney and his lawyer-wife, Amal Alamuddin, who later became Amal Clooney, have been separated for the time which makes it easier for them to get into a quarrel. Going down Memory Lane, the couple met at a charity fundraising event after which it was rumored that they were dating. Clooney's representative had at that time denied that they were an item. It didn't take long for them to be spotted in public places, walking hand-in-hand, and even taking trips to Seychelles island and Tanzania. It is surprising how a once promising relationship turned sour all of a sudden.

As it stands, no one can pinpoint the real issue towards their highly speculated divorce. While some have argued that Clooney has been under lots of pressure from his wife to have children which he has refused, others have come out to say that jealousy and insecurity on the part of Amal are the cause. The table also seems to have been turned as it is said that Clooney is disgusted over his wife's excessive spending and taste. As it is, no one can categorically tell what the problem is. Who knows, it just might not be a single problem, but one that has piled up over the years.

The highly placed couple seems to be in a very rocky boat right now and it seems their marriage is hanging by a thread. The speculated divorce is priced at $300 million of which it is said that Amal will become the lawful owner of a large percentage of George's fortune in addition to his Lake Como Villa.
We cannot draw a conclusion what really transpired and the expectations as there has been no official statements from either party but can only wait to see what unfolds. Time will tell.
