Infamous playboy George Clooney and Elisabeth Canalis, his super hot Italian actress girlfriend, have split up! The former couple released a joint statement on Tuesday saying they are no longer an item. The break up comes only a few weeks after Canalis speculated on her future marriage plans in a magazine interview.
“We are not together anymore,” George Clooney and Elisabeth Canalis said in a joint press statement issued by Clooney’s publicist. “It’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.”
Only a week ago, Clooney and Canalis seemed to still be sucking the marrow out of their romance. The two were spotted out at a restaurant near Italy’s Lake Como, smiling and seeming quite the couple in love.
We wonder if Canalis’s casual talk about future marriage plans to Italian magazine Chi might have had anything to do with the split. Canalis told the magazine just a few weeks ago that she is “a firm believer in marriage, in the future I will be married. But for the time being I am as happy as I am, I don’t need anything to confirm how happy I am.”
Prior to his relationship with Canalis, George Clooney was married to Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993 before launching into a string of relationships with various women. Clooney is known to beÂ adament about not walking down the aisleÂ again and evenÂ bet actress Michelle Pfeiffer $50,000 that he would never remarry.
