George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis split


George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis have called it quits after 2 years together.

The former couple released a joint statement Wednesday to address the split.

“We are not together anymore. It’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.”

Canalis’ publicist also added that Elisabetta will not speak to the press until she takes some personal time for herself. She also wouldn’t reveal exactly when the breakup happened.

Clooney, 50, and Canalis, 32, went public with their relationship in September 2009 and were spotted just last week having dinner together in Italy.

Elisabetta opened up about her relationship with Clooney in a recent interview, calling their life together a “fairytale.” She also revealed that although she’s happy for now, she plans on getting married in the future. Maybe these comments didn’t sit well with George. It seems like he’ll never be the marrying type.
