George Clooney  met up with his friend and business partner Rande Gerber in Malibu on Thursday before taking a ride on his motorcycle. The two met up at Cafe Habana, which Rande co-owns. While George looked happy, he has recently been battling a slew of rumors ever since he announced his engagement to British lawyer Amal Alamuddin . There have been reports that the two would be getting hitched at Highclere Castle in England, aka the location for Downton Abbey, but there have also been reports that the two will tie the knot somewhere in Italy . There were also reports that Amal was getting "cold feet," but George's rep shot down the rumors , saying that the couple is "happy and laughing at all the made up stories with fake sources."
