Just like we had predicted, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin sold off their wedding pictures to the highest bidder for charity. As you may already know, “People” magazine snatched up the photos for the North American market, while “Hello!” magazine secured the rights to the pictures for the European market. If you’ve missed both magazine covers, we covered them here yesterday for your perusal.
Naturally, Amal looked gorgeous in her white lace Oscar de la Renta gown while George snazzied it up in his black Armani suit. TMZ reports that the pictures for the much anticipated event were auctioned off and the proceeds will benefit the Satellite Sentinel Project:
Our sources say … the money will be going to several human rights charities. We’re told the lion’s share is earmarked for the Satellite Sentinel Project — a charity that monitors the Sudan for war crimes. Clooney is a co-founder of the group, which launched in 2010.
As one source connected to Clooney tells TMZ … “Every photo in both magazines will be saving a life.”
While it’s great to see those who can help out others in such a big way doing so, the only question on our minds currently is whether or not George and Amal have a prenuptial agreement. We never thought we would use the words “George Clooney” and “prenup” in a sentence, because we all bought into George’s musings about never getting married again. We certainly thought George would remain the eternal bachelor because anytime any of his former girlfriends uttered the words “marriage” or “babies”, he bolted with a quickness.
To the married couple, we say congratulations and best of luck in your future together. We’ll leave with one last question which has to be on other people’s minds, as well… Why weren’t Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at George and Amal’s wedding? We thought that they were all close friends… Rumors were flying prior to the event that Angelina was gearing up to face off against Jennifer Aniston when they both attended the celebration, but neither showed up. Were they invited? What do you think?
