George Clooney is a rich(er) man! He, along with his two business partners have sold their tequila brand Casamigos for one billion dollars.
Yes, you read that right. BILLION. Not bad for a company they started four years ago. British liquor company Diageo are the one’s dishing out the cash, though it seems Clooney will remain part of the company in some aspect.
Here’s what he had to say about the sale:
“If you asked us four years ago if we had a billion dollar company, I don’t think we would have said yes, but we’re not going anywhere. We’ll still be very much a part of Casamigos. Starting with a shot tonight. Maybe two.” (CNBC)
