As we all saw, George Clooney and bride Amal Alamuddin were extremely generous with the paparazzi when they got married in the land that gave us that photographer term. It almost seemed as if the choice of Venice’s canals was Clooney’s clever solution to dealing with the inevitable media crush: let the media get close without being able to get too close.
But apparently, all this was not enough for In Touch Weekly. As reported by the Daily News‘ “Confidenti@l,” the magazine tested a new drone approach to journalism above the Clooney-Alamuddin pre and post-wedding festivities:
We’re told the magazine wanted to try out the strategy in a “limited situation,” and the Clooney celebrations seemed the right opportunity because they were outside of the U.S., where drone use is mired in controversy and legal problems. But after what it considers a successful trial, our insider says, In Touch plans to rent a drone in this country and eventually buy its own.
Gossip Cop followed up with the Clooney camp and got this response:
A rep for Clooney tells Gossip Cop the newlyweds heard about the drone but will not be commenting.
