Going above and beyond, Clooney told his inner circle that he'd paid all the taxes on the cash, so each of them had the money — in the form of stacks of $20 bills — free and clear.
Gerber, a co-owner of Clooney's Casamigos Tequila company and wealthy in his own right, tried to turn down his share of the cash.
“I pull him aside and said, ‘I absolutely am not taking this million dollars,'” Gerber said. “Immediately George goes, ‘I’m just going to make one announcement. If Rande doesn’t take the million dollars, nobody gets it.'” According to Gerber, he donated his million to charity, but he remains in awe of his friend’s gesture. “One was working at a bar in Texas at the airport, trying just to support his family,” Gerber said. “Rides a bicycle to work every day. I mean these are guys that took care of George, and now he’s giving it all back.”
He continued, "This is who George is. That was Sept. 27, 2013. Now Sept. 27, 2014, he marries Amal. Now that's good karma right there."
Considering the Clooneys recently welcomed twins, it looks like the karma is going to keep on coming!
