Amal Clooney wants to make a fresh start with her husband and asked George to get rid of the many bachelor pads he purchased in his heyday.
A source told OK! magazine that Amal “doesn’t want to be surrounded by reminders of his previous conquests,” so she requested he put his four properties around the world — a villa in Italy, a beach house in Mexico, an apartment in New York City and a house in L.A.’s popular Fryman Canyon — up for sale.
“Those houses hold a lot of happy memories for George, but she hates the thought of sleeping in the same rooms as his former lovers,” says the source.
Amal, who married George in 2014, has already done her fair share of remodeling in those homes, too. The source said she made her husband throw out the mattresses, and even the beds, in the master suites of his various homes.
“He knows it’s pointless arguing with her — she’s a lawyer, and she always wins!”
George has reportedly put two of his four properties on sale already, including his retreat in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico valued at $50 million. The actor also reportedly received an offer of $50 million for his beloved 18th century estate on Italy’s Lake Como — five times what he paid for it in 2002.
The pair will instead live in the 17th century mansion on the Thames in London, which they bought for $16 million last year, close by to Amal’s law firm.
But the UK won’t be their only home base! The Clooneys are scouting family-friendly houses in Beverly Hills, New York and the Hamptons because, as OK! has reported, Amal and George are ready to start a family.
