Clooney's Biz Partner

George Wasn't Drunk When He Blasted Wynn

4/24/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Clooney
's biz partner insists the actor was NOT pounding shots before his nuclear blowout with casino mogul Steve Wynn -- and tells TMZ, "We weren't drunk."

As we reported, Clooney and Wynn (left) locked horns earlier this month at a fancy dinner in Vegas after Wynn called Obama an a-hole. Clooney shot back, calling Wynn the a-hole ... then stormed out.

Wynn claims things exploded because Clooney was slamming tequila -- but Rande Gerber, who was at the dinner -- insists, "No shots were had" ... and it was NOT a heated political debate.

Gerber says, "This wasn't about politics. It was about George standing up for a friend."

FYI, Clooney and Gerber (Cindy Crawford's husband) are partners in a tequila company called Casamigos. They were meeting with Wynn to discuss future business at Wynn's hotels, which already serves the brand.

Funny, we're told Wynn's hotels continue to stock Casamigos ... despite the blowout.

So....he hated W for ignoring Sudan but when Obama ignores Sudan, George can remain his bestie? Do these Hollywierd creeps ever keep track of their distortions?

I can see Wynn's point. What multi-billionaire wants to share his money by contributing to health insurance for all those losers that work for him. Much better to throw his politics into a dinner with friends. What a douche bag.

For the love of God! Can somebody tell these idiots that being big time polictical contributors do not make you friends with said candidate??? Washington uses Hollywood as their propaganda machine and Hollywood are so full of themselves that they actually think they are relevant in a meaningful way!! its hilarious and said at the same time.

George is a shallow guy and doesn't know the meaning of the word friend. He became "friends" with Barry when they both realized they could use each other to push their beliefs on you and me. George is pathetic and if I was Barry I would distance myself from this guy, like he distanced himself from Rev. Jeremiah Wright. (Sorry tmz getting to intellectual for you all, time for a Kartrashian story)

Clooney is too smug for my taste. He wants people to be impressed with his politics but nobody gives a shift about what has to say.

George is a handsome, but stupid liberal. Who cares what the hell he thinks.

hard to say which one is more arrogant, Clooney or Obama. fersure, neither of them know the first thing about "real" life or running a country.

Drunk or not, Clooney is an out-of-touch lib self-absorbed actor. I met him and he is really really tiny in person....think he might have a touch of a Napoleon complex.

Why would it be "funny" or surprising that Wynn continues to stock Casamingos? He's a business man. If that brand of tequila sells in LV then continue to sell it. I'm sure he stocks plenty of other 'celebrity' liquors who have political views he doesn't believe in.
