Who can forget John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s wedding in 2010? The couple stunned their fans with a surprise wedding ceremony at Lake Como, but it looks like the destination is now up for grabs. The destination they had chosen was one that was highly private, as they were trying to keep the paparazzi out. But now it seems as though the couple may not have another chance to visit their wedding location soon as it is being sold.

But the reason behind the couple losing their former wedding location has nothing to do with them, and everything to do with George Clooney.

According to reports from an Italian magazine called Oggi, it was revealed that George Clooney had put his $100 million Lake Como mansion on sale. It was a real estate agent named, Yasein Baysal of Engel & Volkers that broke the news. There have been many rumors about Clooney selling his Villa Oleandra over the years, but this time the agent said that it was “true.”

While she went on to say that it was not her who was handling the sale of the house, she refused to reveal who the actual agent was. So far, the only confirmation has come from Italian sources that claim that the sale is really happening, which means the actor is selling a house he has owned for 21 years. But while it may be a busy time for the Oceans 11 actor, there are a few of his friends and acquaintances who might not be too happy about this latest update.
