Many had thought that George Clooney had finally settled down after meeting his Italian model girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, but that does not seem to be the case. According to a joint statement released by Clooney and Canalis, they are “not together anymore”. The statement, released from London, added, “it’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.”
For many, the split seemed to come out of no where. Clooney and Canalis were just spotted out and about last week on Lake Como at a restaurant in Cenobbio at what seemed to the paparazzi as a intimate dinner between the couple. In fact, just a few weeks ago, Canalis spoke to Chi Magazine based in Italy, and said that she was “very happy at the moment”. She added that it was thanks to “[her] man”. She even added that because of Clooney, her “fairytale is continuing. We are a couple that never gets bored. Whenever I see my picture in a magazine I know what is being written. They all say that I spend my time organizing parties and that my boyfriend does not want to marry me and be with me anymore.”
The couple have been dating for two years, and it has been highly speculated on while they were together that they were going to get married, although that never happened obviously. Clooney had been previously linked to Talia Balsam, whom he was married to for four years.
