Depending on your point of view, this is either shocking news, or a totally predictable development that you’ve been anticipating for 5 years.

According to Radar Online, George and Amal Clooney are currently separated and bracing themselves for a $520 million divorce battle.

The site claims that Amal has absconded with the couple’s twins, Alexander and Ella, and the three of them have taken up residence — sans George — at the Clooneys’ recently-purchased villa on the Italian island of Sardinia.

These two even make divorce sound classy!

"George is beside himself," a source tells the site.

"Pals said he is pleading with Amal to come home!” revealed a different insider.

“He wanted them to enjoy the new property together, but after an explosive argument she ran off there with Alexander and Ella," the second source adds.

"She’s told him if he comes, he’ll have to stay in the guest house!”

The insider says George feels he is running out of options and has resorted to anxiously texting Amal:

“Let me see the twins!” and "Let’s get back together for the kids!"

That last one seems a little on the nose, but we suppose it’s possible.

It’s unclear what prompted Amal to take flight, but accounts seem to concur that George is to blame.

"Remorseful George is telling Amal he will do whatever his wife wants as long as she comes home," the source adds.

"He will change his ways and stop driving her up a wall."

Part of the problem, it seems, is that George has maintained his carefree lifestyle despite becoming a father.

"He has let her know in no uncertain terms that he will ‘toe the line’ and be more involved," says the insider.

"He will do whatever it takes to make her happy."

The tipster claims those who know the Clooneys best are not surprised that Amal has gotten fed up.

"People already thought it was weird that they didn’t spend their anniversary together, and it definitely raised eyebrows when Amal missed a party for George’s Casamigos tequila brand while [business partner] Rande Gerber’s wife, Cindy Crawford, was there," the tipster reveals.

"There was talk that a divorce was underway."

The insider adds that George is beyond distraught over the state of hmarriageiag.

"He does not want this marriage to end," says the informant, adding that George has reached the point where he’s crying "four times a day" out of exhaustion 

"He just wants the separation to be over," the source claims.
