George Clooney Brand Of Clothes Is Fake

(CBS/AP) Two people were being investigated for alleged fraud after attempting to launch a fashion line with a brand using George Clooney's name, police in Milan said Thursday.

Tax police said they seized garments and watches Wednesday, as well as fake documentation. The ANSA news agency said the line was to be launched in Milan next week.

Police said the probe stemmed from a complaint filed by the actor.

"If someone tries to sell you clothes or watches that are based on me, don't buy them," Clooney, 46, told reporters Wednesday in Rome, where he was promoting his new film, "Leatherheads."
