George Clooney Paid To Beef Up Wedding Security--Find Out How The Venice Police Seriously Cashed In!
To say that George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin 's nuptials were any less than lavish would be an understatement, and lucky for us all, the newlyweds decided to share their special day with the world. Despite the fact that George and Amal were "loving sharing their excitement at getting married with the entire world," There were a number of precautions put into place to ensure those trips through the Grand Canals were all smooth sailing.
Namely, the paparazzi were hit with some heavy fines by the Venice police for the privilege of snapping a shot of the happy couple. To put things in even simpler terms? The shutterbugs collectively paid $30,000 to local officials to snap those money shots of Mr. and Mrs. Clooney. But the paps weren't the only ones shelling out cash! The 53-year-old Hollywood hunk also paid a pretty penny to the traffic police for their assistance with the wedding. Town municipality official Michela Camozzi tells E! news, "The Venice traffic warden police unit has received a total of $3,603 from Clooney for services relating to his wedding."
