George Clooney and the only other 50-something guy he could find in Hollywood almost as handsome as himself, former male model Rande Gerber, cashed out on their Casamigos Tequila company to the tune of one billion dollars. No idea who owns what between the two middle aged party Ken dolls and the other business partner in the venture. Clooney and Gerber put little skin into Casamigos besides hosting a ton of celebrity parties making it the must have cool tequila for upscale parties on the coast.
So the urban legend goes, Clooney and Gerber were importing tons of the tequila themselves for their private soirees. They were running into issues with customs because of the quantity without a distribution license. So they bought Casamigos with another money friend. That was but four years ago. Worldwide massive liquor company Diageo now owns it along with a service contract for some more smiles and parties from Clooney and Gerber. Conservatively estimate each took in a hundred million. Maybe much more.
This will be the time Clooney critics, and people who care enough to dislike Cindy Crawford’s husband for any number of reasons, will note how Clooney is a rich fuck limousine liberal. They’ll question if he’s sheltering his windfall from massive taxation. Who the fuck knows?
Imagine he doesn’t care what you think. He’s making babies with the most politically correct Lebanese woman ever invented. He’s golfing with Obama talking about his next get rich quick schemes simply for being Clooney. His cup is overflowing. Some men are blessed. Hypocrisy circles them lightly but never touches. Or maybe that’s the pointless party brand tequila talking. Men were never meant to be pretty.
