Trio Behind Fake George Clooney Fashion Line Sentenced To Jail

Illustration for article titled Trio Behind Fake George Clooney Fashion Line Sentenced To Jail

Remember when George Clooney found out three men in Italy were going into business with a supposed George Clooney fashion line called "GC Exclusive," and using his name and image to market it? To bolster their claims of association with Clooney, they took a picture of themselves with a different man, and Photoshopped the actor's head onto his body. Clooney charmed the court during his 90-minute trial testimony, not least when he said that you could tell the pictures were doctored because "I don't smoke and I don't wear that watch...I also don't wear long jean shorts."

Well, today in Milan, the three people convicted of perpetrating the fraud — Vanja Goffi, Galdelli, and Vincenzo Cannalire — were sentenced respectively to 3 years and 10 months, 3 years and 6 months, and 1 year and 10 months in jail.

Moral of the story? Don't mess with George Clooney. If you make it look as if he wears long jean shorts and a cheap watch, dude will cut you.
