It was just two weeks ago that Elisabetta Canalis opened up to a magazine, saying that she wanted to get married to George Clooney. That may have been why the couple have split, according to various sources. Canalis recently told Chi based in Italy that she was “very happy at the moment”. She added, “I am a firm believer in marriage…In the future I will be married, but for the time being I am happy as I am. I don’t need anything to confirm how happy I am. Thanks to my man, my fairytale is continuing. We are a couple that never gets bored.”
Could that have been damaging for the couple? Clooney has been linked to various women throughout Hollywood throughout the years, but a source notes that Clooney may not be wanting to get married again following his divorce from Talia Balsam in 1993. Back in 2007, he even told the Daily Mall that he never wants to marry again. So, did he hear about the interview Canalis did with the magazine and thought the relationship was getting too serious for him? Just this past week, Clooney and Canalis were spotted on Lake Como at a restaurant in Cenobbio at what seemed to the paparazzi as a intimate dinner between the couple.
In a joint statement issued to USA Today the couple said, “We are not together anymore. It’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.” Clooney and Canalis have been linked together since 2009.
