A mini-feud between George Clooney and some of his neighbors, because of his California mansion’s construction and renovations, has led to a surprising revelation.
Clooney is spending over $1 million for multiple additions to the property, including an elegant cottage for his three-year-old twins, Ella and Alexandra Clooney.
One angry neighbor recently did an interview where they lashed out at the actor and his wife, Amal Clooney, for creating so much chaos and noise in the area.
The person told The Sun that as soon as the renovations are over, they believe that the iconic actor plans to leave England and return to California to pursue a political career.
The neighbor shared the following scoop with the media: “My guess is that he wants to run for mayor of Los Angeles when [current mayor] Eric Garcetti‘s term ends.”
The homeowner stated: “George held a fundraiser for [Barack] Obama on the tennis court here and another for Hillary Clinton where it was $1,000 a plate. He’s big in the Democratic Party.”
Clooney, a proud Democrat, had indeed hosted fundraisers for former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the mansion.
He recently had a virtual event for Joe Biden and was able to raise over $7 million for the Democratic National Convention.
Clooney grabbed headlines and hinted that he might have political ambitions with a powerful statement about the killing of Breonna Taylor.
The Kentucky-born actor shared an emotional message after it was announced that the police officers who fatally shot the 26-year-old woman would not be charged.
Taylor, an emergency medical technician, was shot multiple times by three police officers while inside her Louisville, Kentucky home during a failed drug raid.
Clooney said he was ashamed of the decision and added: “I was born and raised in Kentucky. Cut tobacco on the farms of Kentucky. Both my parents and my sister live in Kentucky. I own a home in Kentucky, and I was there last month.”
Clooney went on to share: “The justice system I was raised to believe in holds people responsible for their actions. Her name was Breonna Taylor, and she was shot to death in her bed by 3 white police officers, who will not be charged with any crime for her death. I know the community. I know the commonwealth. And I was taught in the schools and churches of Kentucky what is right and what is wrong. I’m ashamed of this decision.”
Some political experts say that a Clooney run for public office seems unlikely at the age of 59.
