George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis Break Up 2011-06-22 08:36:48

George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis Break Up!

George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis have broken up! In a joint statement today, the couple confirmed the news. Elisabetta and George drafted a press release that said, "We are not together anymore. It's very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy."

George and Elisabetta, who started dating over the Summer of 2009, were spotted together in Italy recently. He was in her home country to work on an ad campaign in Milan before retreating for some R&R near his Lake Como home. Elisabetta recently gave an interview to the European magazine Chi in which she talked about her happiness with George, saying, "I am very happy at the moment — thanks to my man and my fairytale is continuing. We are a couple that never gets bored." It seems, though, they have decided to officially part ways.

When she said all those things about kids and marriage i knew it wouldnt be long until the ax will fall;) Why dont those women not realize that he is not into marriage or kids for himself? They all know that going in. And George, for crying out loud, find somebody older and somebody that knows how to cook, they all look like they are starving:)!!

"i discovery now she destroyed his masion in lake como, she is crazy" @ Silver, wtf? lol

Yeah, I agree. If George were gay, he could just buy himself a beard/wife. Why change up with so many gf's? Doesn't make sense. The man just doesn't want to settle down. Nothing wrong with that.

I doubt if it is "very difficult" for George or "very personal" for Canalis. If it is so personal, why put out the statement in the first place? As they have not been seen much together since Xmas, people would not have noticed anyway - unless of course he would like to hang out with other women this summer in Lake Como....If he is gay, and all these women he dates are on contracts, why would he bother changing them so often? I think he is just a happy bachelor who does not want to committ.

It was a publicity contract, and it ended in December. Canalis and her publicist released old photos and even an old video trying to make it look like she was still hanging out with George. I'm glad George an end to the nonsense. I'm looking forward to seeing George with a genuine smile on his face as he promotes his movies and goes about his life.

Hey Silverscreen you are SOOO right- every comment I posted on E never saw the light of day- just because I called them on bogus stories !!

and I'd ask her "why the long face" now but she's always looked like a horse....maybe Leo will let George have Blake when she's done bearding for him :)

Highly highly highly unlikely, but I'd like to see him hook up with Sandra Bullock, and adopt a second kid.

A cautionary tale to women who think they are going to change their man. ha Looking forward to seeing the next gullible woman in line.

So glad that he has some class left- I thought this skank sucked his dingnity dry- silverscreen you called it- he needs to find someone decent with some morals not a golddigging, skanky, always naked woman with no self respect for herself or respect for her man- good personal and career move George!!

She wanted to get married and thought she could change that he didnt. I bet you $$. Thaaaat sucks. Why the hell people cant leave well enough alone is beyond me. If that is the case-what ever is working and your happy-leave it. Kinda like "if it aint broke..." type of mentality. My fiancee/husband/whatever and I have been together for 9 years. Engaged for 6. While it would be nice to have a wedding, we're not in any hurry. To us, we just want it for the party/ We are both fine and know we aren't going anywhere. There is no reason at all to rush. That, and weddings are freaking expensive and I dont have a family to pick up my end of the traditional tab. We will be paying for it ourselves and we decided we would be happier with a home right now, which we needed waaaaay more than a party(the place we were in was literally a 1 room house for 8 years. We were on the brink of killing each other). So we bought a house instead. Yet another year the wedding Im totally cool with that. Hell, my boss and her husband/fiancee thing have been together for 25 years and have 2 grown children and never been married! That's probably going to be us. Damn this got rambly. But you guys see where Im getting at, I hope. There was a point, I swear.

my goodness - some of the things that people post are out of this world! anyway, it's a shame that it didn't work out with them since they've been together for so long but i think that it's really not all that surprising. he's the ultimate bachelor and that's just something that you have to live with when you think about relationships and GC

Shocker. Yeah, everybody! Respect "thong lady"s privacy. As soon as her attention dwindles, she'll be certain to fill you all in.

And soon as I read that interview where she said, "I WILL be married!" I heard 'the bell toll' -- and it WASN'T 'wedding bells'! (Okay, Single Ladies, "Start your engines!" Vroom-vroom -- LOL!)
