Amal Alamuddin - Amal Alamuddin's mum against wedding?

Amal Alamuddin's mother is reportedly against her marrying George Clooney.

Baria Alamuddin wants the human rights lawyer, 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 the 53-year-old Hollywood actor.

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.

Meanwhile, George's parents Nina and Nick are over the moon about their son's engagement and think Amal, 36, who they met over a year ago, is a ''lovely girl''.

Nina said previously: ''You can say I'm extremely happy, Amal's a lovely girl.''

The couple, who got engaged earlier this year, are expected to get married in September near Lake Como in Italy after spending last month scouting potential venues for the romantic nuptials.
