George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis have called it quits after two years together, sparking rumors that the Italian model scared off Hollywood’s most famous bachelor with her marriage plans.
George, 50, and the Italian beauty issued a joint statement on Wednesday saying: “We are not together any more. It’s very difficult and very personal.”
Earlier this month, Canalis suggested marriage could be on the cards as she addressed Clooney’s reputation as an eternal bachelor, saying: ‘I could never be with someone who every time he opens his mouth says he doesn’t want a child with me or to marry me.
In an interview with Italian magazine Chi, Miss Canalis continued: “My second job at the moment seems to be maid of honour. For the time being that’s how it is, but I’m not putting any time limits.
“Who knows what will happen? 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.”
“Elisabetta is a traditional girl and wanted the fairytale,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying.
“But George has never made a secret of his feelings and he wanted things to continue as they were,” the source added.
