Amal buys George a £135K birthday present

Amal Clooney is buying George Clooney a £135,000 car for his birthday.

The human rights lawyer has reportedly splashed out on a Porsche 911 GT3 RS as an extra special gift for her husband to celebrate his 54th birthday on Wednesday.

A family source revealed: "George loves his cars. They have to be stylish and fast and he always has two.

"Amal has been looking for the right car for him to replace his black Porsche 911 and the new one is much faster. He's already test driven it for his birthday present."

However, the pricey sports car isn't the only present the actor will be receiving from the 37-year-old beauty - who he wed last year in a romantic ceremony in Venice, Italy - as she has also wrapped up a state-of-the-art blender because he is "obsessed" with making smoothies.

The source told the Daily Mirror newspaper she is buying him "a big one apparently because he's obsessed with his smoothies of all descriptions.

"George has had health issues, a lot of ops on his neck, and he finds the smoothies soothing. That's in between the Casamigos Tequilas. Funnily, he finds fast cars soothing too."
