Mr Clooney was attending the hearing in Milan to speak out against alleged Italian fraudsters Vincenzo Cannalire, Francesco Galdelli and Vanja Goggi, who are accused of attempting to launch a fashion label in his name.

The dodgy dealers had even conned buyers and suppliers into thinking George was behind the fashion label, in an attempt to cash in on his A-list status, the court heard.

But even after calling on extra police, it was almost impossible to keep the excitable female fans under control during the hearing.

The weary judge had to call order in the court house several times due to chatter, at one point even halting proceedings as it became too difficult to hear witnesses.
