Amal Clooney is spotted in New York with her mum

EMILY PRESCOTT: Glamorous Amal Clooney wears a leopard-print coat as she hits New York… with her mum

More recently, the 38-year-old – real name Victoria Harrison – kept VIPs on their feet at a Bafta gala party and she is also resident DJ at London’s celeb haunt Chiltern Firehouse.
