Over two years ago, someone sent an e-mail around Italy about a Milan fashion show for a clothing line called GC Exclusive by George Clooney. Clooney, who is not and never was designing a clothing line, issued a statement calling the email "a hoax." Now he plans to go to court on July 16 to testify against GC Exclusive, which has been accused of fraud and forging Clooney's signature. This makes Clooney that rare celebrity who finds the idea of doing his own clothing line so embarrassing he has taken legal action to defend his honor. [WWD]
