HOLLYWOOD tough guy George Clooney is part of a real-life crime family with a chilling history of brutal violence, drugs and armed robbery, an explosive GLOBE special ­investigation reveals.


Shockingly, the Ocean’s Eleven gangster’s actual cousins — Tyler Clooney, 20, and his mom, Kelly, 40 — are jailbirds with rap sheets featuring arrests for heroin trafficking, burglary, theft and wanton endangerment in the family’s home state, Kentucky. Lawmen say the violent rogues are notorious in Louisville.
