George Lucas is engaged to girlfriend Mellody Hobson




George Lucas is getting married for the second time, with word the Star Wars creator is engaged to his girlfriend of six years, DreamWorks chairman Mellody Hobson. Now you know how he'll be spending that $4 billion he got for selling Lucasfilm to Disney.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms Hobson, 43, and Lucas, 68, will get hitched at some point, but they don't know when and where. It will be the first marriage for Hobson, who also is the head of a Chicago investment management firm called Ariel Investments. Sounds like this is a pair with a little bit of money.

And we give Jorge a hard time and all, but what he really spent all that money from Disney on was a fat donation to an education charity. There's no word whether that will be his own George Lucas Educational Foundation or something else, but we're sure it's a pretty big tax dodage, whatever he chooses.
