Fabio to Clooney: Stop Being a Diva!

George Clooney and Fabio

Last Friday, George Clooney and his girlfriend, Sarah Larsen, were having dinner at the L.A. restaurant Madeo next to Fabio, who was dining with a group of women. When one of the women with Fabio started taking pictures of Fabio and her friends, Clooney immediately assumed that she was taking pictures of him and asked her to stop. Then things got ugly. The New York Post's Page Six reports:

Clooney, assuming the woman was taking snaps of him, asked her to stop - prompting Fabio to explain that the shots were of his group, not Clooney, and to tell the superstar, "Stop being a diva." Clooney started arguing back, and he and Fabio then got into a shoving match."

Imagine Fabio, being all massive and tanned, with his flowing blonde hair yelling at Clooney, telling him to "STOP BEING A DIVA!" That's nuts. Honestly, you can't make that stuff up. But then again, Fabio is massive, and Clooney is, well, medium-sized... what the hell motivated Clooney to try to be the tough guy? Did he have a death wish or something!? Page Six further reports:

According to another In Touch witness, Ron Marotto, "George looked annoyed when Fabio went to his table. George stood up, dropped the F-bomb and then went to push him . . . George was drinking . . . He wasn't drunk, but he certainly wasn't stone sober, either."

Ahh, so it was most likely just a case of beer balls. Which is funny because it was Clooney who ended up looking cooler than Fabio, in my opinion. Clooney stood up and refused to take bullsh*t from Fabio, no matter how big he may be... while Fabio just got a bit flustered and called George a "Diva." Yea, that's manly. And by manly I mean incredibly and flamboyantly gay.

What's even funnier is that in the aftermath of all of this, Fabio's manager said the following:

"George is lucky he didn't end up in the ER.""

Tough words from a guy who manages a male model who throws the word "diva" around in his everyday conversation. I bet he and Fabio came up with the whole "Clooney ending up in the ER" thing during a riveting episode of The View while sipping on a soothing cup of chamomile tea. And by watching an episode of The View, I mean they were probably doing it with each other.
