George Clooney has put paid to reports that he is about to up sticks and move from his Italian villa.
Speculation recently surfaced about the Up in the Air star planning to sell his Lake Como pad and move to another property on the lake's Loreto Island.
David and Victoria Beckham were named as interested buyers of the villa.
"To complete the news cycle: I am not buying an island and am not selling my house in Italy. The story was made up, then picked up and now denied. End of another riveting day of false news," George has confirmed in a statement.
