George Clooney, Steve Wynn Feud Grows More Intense

Las Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn insists he did not call US President Barack Obama an “a**hole” during a heated argument last month while having dinner with Hollywood actor George Clooney.

Wynn accused Clooney, who stormed out of the Las Vegas restaurant following the alleged remarks, as having been “a little into the tequila”.  He also branded the Ocean’s Eleven star as “mollycoddled”. 

Clooney quickly responded to Wynn’s remarks via
"I will not let his version of the truth go unchallenged. He now says he didn't call the president an 'a******.' That is false. He bellowed 'I voted for the a******,' and then called him the same thing several more times as the dinner came to an abrupt end.

"Again there were eight people at the table, eight witnesses. I did in turn, call him the same body part, and walked out. Again he can make up whatever story he wants, but these are the facts. He said I drank 16 shots of tequila. I didn't drink one shot of tequila, not one. We were drinking but it was early and we still had two events to attend.

"He said I live in a bubble. More of a bubble than Las Vegas? Honestly? He says I'm 'molly coddled,' that I'm surrounded by people who coddle me. I would suggest that Mr. Wynn look to his left and right and find anyone in his sphere that says anything but 'yes' to him...

"Steve is one of the richest men in the world and he should be congratulated for it, but he needs to take off his red sparkly dinner jacket and roll up his sleeves every once in a while and understand what most of the country is actually dealing with... or at least start with the fact that you can't make up stories when eight people who are not on your payroll are sitting around you as witnesses."

Last week, Wynn won a $7.5 million judgment against “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis as part of a defamation lawsuit.
