George Clooney Feuds with Casino Owner Steve Wynn - Read GC's Latest Statement!

George Clooney Feuds with Casino Owner Steve Wynn - Read GC's Latest Statement!

George Clooney is firing back at casino billionaire Steve Wynn after Steve allegedly called President Obama an “a–hole” at a group dinner on April 23 attended by George.

The 52-year-old actor just released a lengthy statement via People:

Steve Wynn and I have met three times, two times for dinner. That is the extent of our knowledge of one another, so I will refrain from trying to categorize him based on the little time we’ve spent together, but I will not let his version of the truth go unchallenged.

“He now says he didn’t call the president an ‘a——.’ That is false. He bellowed ‘I voted for the a——,’ and then called him the same thing several more times as the dinner came to an abrupt end.”

“Again there were eight people at the table, eight witnesses. I did in turn, call him the same body part, and walked out. Again he can make up whatever story he wants, but these are the facts. He said I drank 16 shots of tequila. I didn’t drink one shot of tequila, not one. We were drinking but it was early and we still had two events to attend.”

“He said I live in a bubble. More of a bubble than Las Vegas? Honestly? He says I’m ‘molly coddled,’ that I’m surrounded by people who coddle me. I would suggest that Mr. Wynn look to his left and right and find anyone in his sphere that says anything but ‘yes’ to him. Emphatically. I did not attend a private boys’ school, I worked in tobacco fields and in stock rooms, and construction sites. I’ve been broke more of my life than I have been successful, and I understand the meaning of being an employee and how difficult it is to make ends meet.

“Steve is one of the richest men in the world and he should be congratulated for it, but he needs to take off his red sparkly dinner jacket and roll up his sleeves every once in a while and understand what most of the country is actually dealing with … or at least start with the fact that you can’t make up stories when eight people who are not on your payroll are sitting around you as witnesses.”

Them fighting words!

    George Clooney is humorless. He forgot to mention that his famous aunt , singer Rosemary Cloooney pulled man stringdps to get work in Hollywood. He’s been a working actor for decades. He’s been richer longer than being poor- which he never was.

    If I were his bride to be. I would be embarrassed by this stupid rant. What a baby he is. And a narcissist.

    @XOXO…because if you criticize a failed President and his failing policies that he lied to the American public to get passed and is still lying daily to keep them from knowing what a boondoggle Obamacare is ….it’s racist… I guess 65% of the Americans our racist , that’s how many think Obama’s a failed leader .

    @Xoxo:

    Typical lib response. Wynn doesn’t like the Prez so he’s racist. I’m so sick of hearing that and believe me, so is everyone else. Obama’s a lousy president and it has NOTHING to do with his color. Deal with it!

    Tell ‘em George. Wynn is a racist, plastic surgery looking freak who can’t find any dirt on you, so he resorts to making **** up. He looks like he a DL idiot with 2 inches of flaccid nothingness.

    Galey Says:

    Team George, I think he is amazing and very honest. He is also very funny and dos not take himself too seriously. He is also very smart and politically involved in all the ways that count.

    Tom Says:

    George Clooney who doesn’t even have a college degree, and can’t act either, lucky break getting ER after 20 years in Hollywood, knows more how policies effect the economy then a guy who runs a billion dollar empire and has thousands of employees and who says hollywood celebrities live in their own world and don’t know sh*t about anything.

    Hollyweird at it again Says:

    Clooney is seriously pathetic loser , he always opens his stupid mouth , did the same think with Sony , pretended he knew more about business then a hedge fund manager, 7 months later Sony’s doing exactly what the manager recommended so they don’t file for bankruptcy, while George’s movie for Sony didn’t even make any money , stick to drinking & dating cocktail waitresses and pretend girlfriend, will you George .

    I’m normally not on GC side. I think he cares too much about what people think of him. But when a billionaire whines about having to pay a little more so their employees have health care I scream KICK HIS A S S STRAIGHT George!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Niagirl Says:

    Oh please. Wynn should direct his anger where it belongs and that is at his ex wife. Elaine is the one who took more than half.

    Ann Says:

    Suspicious timing after Steve Wynn called him a pathetic drunk. The next day he trots out Rande Gerber to defend him (!) and the next day he is “engaged”. Not Buying It For One Second.

    Em Says:

    @22 I agree, here we go, another day chock full of the excruciating details of this oh-so-private man’s latest romance. Someone really wants to distract us from looking behind that curtain!

    @ Allison Says:

    @ Allison… You obviously know nothing , employers wouldn’t be paying more they’ll paying less once they dump their employee’s into Obamacare and pay the fine , that’s why Obama keeps delaying the employee mandate until after 2014 election…. Stupid and unformed people like you are what is ruining this country, electing crooks like Obama who thinks the public can be easily fooled if you have the media and entertainment industry on your side and you prove his belief.

    @Avery:

    I still have to see the failed policies of the President but I’m getting tired of experiencing the failed policies of the Republicans I think their failed educational policies is what keeping them in office.
