George Clooney's heated and very public disagreement with Casino mogul Steve Wynn continues with Clooney adding more fuel to the fire in a statement released yesterday (May 2nd).

George Clooney has responded to Steve Wynn's claims he is "molly coddled".

Clooney and Wynn allegedly had a disagreement last month in Las Vegas after Wynn allegedly called President Barack Obama an "a******".  The incident allegedly occurred on April 23rd when Clooney attended a group dinner along with Wynn.

Whilst Wynn has been supportive of various Democrat candidates, including Obama in 2008, he has become increasingly critical of the President. In an interview with Business Insider in 2011, Wynn criticised the Obama led government as being "the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime." It appears this alleged comment is in line with Wynn's general feeling towards Obama. In contrast, Obama has been supportive of Obama in both his presidential campaigns, as CBS reports.

After denying he insulted Obama, Wynn continued the feud and seemingly provoked Clooney by claiming the 52-year-old actor is "highly privileged" and "molly coddled". His comments were recorded in an interview with Wynn, who owns a number of casino resorts, claimed Clooney's "world view" had been influenced by those around him and that he makes the assumption that "everything should be given to everybody because everything has been given to them." The 72-year-old mogul further attacked Clooney, and bizarrely Barbra Streisand, for living "live in a very strange bubble of their own," and "the people around them are very solicitous and caring for them."

Wynn's implication that Clooney and his fellow performers are unable to speak for themselves was not well received by the Ocean's Eleven actor. Clooney released a statement to People in which he hit back at the comments and assumptions made by Wynn. Clooney claimed that, contrary to reports he is good friends with Wynn, they have met on a mere three occasions and that Wynn, despite denying he made the comment, most definitely insulted President Obama. He further addressed Wynn's claims that he is "molly coddled" by describing the financial struggles he faced before his success.
