Rumor has it that Baria Alamuddin wants her daughter Amal Alamuddin, who was born into a strict Lebanese religious sect in Beirut, to wed a Druze muslim and believes her daughter can find someone "better" than George Clooney!
A friend of Baria told the MailOnline: "You would think Amal has hit the jackpot with George Clooney, but Baria is not happy. She thinks Amal can do better. She has been telling half of Beirut, in fact anyone that will listen, there are five hundred thousand Druze. Are none of them good enough for her?'"
Amal's beliefs forbid her to marry anyone outside of her religion and disobeying the rules could result in excommunication and social boycott.
