George Clooney & Stacy Keibler are over, she dumped him (update)

Last week, Lainey had some photos of George Clooney at Lake Como for Independence Day. This is not shocking – I think Clooney tries to spend July and August in Italy every year, and he schedules projects around his annual summer vacation. What was surprising was that Stacy Keibler didn’t seem to be anywhere around Lake Como – allegedly, she’s in LA right now. She’s “working”. So, of course, there are new rumors that Stacy and George are over. Personally, I think they’ve been over for several months – in May and June, George was working in England and Stacy was pretty much everywhere BUT England and George even had to deny that he was canoodling an ex-girlfriend in London. And now the UK tabloids are making it into a thing.

They’re used to speculation surrounding their romance, but it seems that George Clooney and Stacy Keibler’s relationship is perhaps finished for good as sources claim that the pair spend one of America’s biggest public holidays apart.

The actor spent July 4 celebrating Independence Day thousands of miles away from his blonde bombshell in Italy, while Stacy spent the holiday partying in Malibu, fuelling speculation that he has laid another relationship to rest.

The movie hunk, who has been busy filming a war biopic in the UK alongside Matt Damon, jetted to a party at the exclusive Villa D’Este Hotel on his speedboat, while his model girlfriend posted pictures online of herself partying stateside.

Reportedly, the pair haven’t been seen together in public for three months, but Clooney has allegedly refused to call time on their two-year relationship despite a source claiming that The Descendants star is quietly distancing himself from Stacy.

And it seems that one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, who has enjoyed a string of romances since his divorce from actress Talia Balsam 20 years ago, has no plans to make more time for his 35-year-old lady.

“It’s not like George and Stacy couldn’t find time to get together if they really wanted to,” an insider confessed, according to the Sunday People. “George is quietly backing away from the relationship. It’s always the same. As soon as he feels a woman is getting too close he pulls back.”

The Daily Mail has a similar story with the same quotes and some additional backstory too. At this point, I pretty much believe that Stacy and George are done and they’ve been done for a while. What bugs me, however, is that George hasn’t confirmed anything. Usually he’s pretty good at getting the word out either way, and it just seems like Stacy is clinging and he’s letting her cling to this idea that they’re still sort of together. Meanwhile, is George actually at Lake Como without a girlfriend? I don’t think he’s ever done that before?!

UPDATE: Yeah, so now it’s official. People Mag has confirmed it, and they say Stacy dumped George. Do you believe that? I don’t believe that.

George Clooney and Stacy Keibler have split. The couple, who began dating two years ago, apparently want different things in life.

“Stacy called it quits. She wants to have children and a family someday. She knows where George stands on that,” a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE exclusively. “They talked and they quietly stopped being a couple several weeks ago.”

The source also says Clooney, 52, and Keibler, 33, will remain on good terms: “They talk every day. They were friends before they started dating and they’ll be friends after. It was a friendly [breakup].”

Although she wants to be a mom one day, it’s clear Keibler is already a dedicated godmother. She Tweeted a birthday wish to her goddaughter with a series of hashtags – “#mylove #myheart #mygoddaughter” – on June 10, before posting an inspiring message the next day about going through tough times. “Trying times are not the times to stop trying,” she Tweeted.

The news of a split comes after the pair have spent a lot of time apart. They were last photographed together in March in Berlin, where Clooney was filming his upcoming drama Monuments Men.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE to promote her new show Supermarket Superstar, premiering July 22 on Lifetime, Keibler spoke about her hectic schedule and her desire to travel this summer.

“My schedule is keeping me pretty busy until the show airs and then hopefully I’ll get the chance to go to Europe,” she said. (Look for more from Keibler’s interview in an upcoming issue of PEOPLE.)

But while Clooney was photographed boarding a boat near his Italian villa on July 4, Keibler partied with girlfriends in Los Angeles at a starry bash thrown by top Hollywood manager Guy Oseary and sponsored by DeLeon Tequila.

“They haven’t seen each other in a while and they’ve both been working so much, so in recent months, they’ve started growing apart,” a second source tells PEOPLE.

Wait, didn’t Elisabetta get to do something like this too? Wasn’t the official line from Elisabetta that she dumped George too, only it was just after Eli gave an interview about wanting children? Why does George always pick the ladies who want kids?

    I’d believe it if it didn’t come from The People, some random British tabloid.

  2. Guesto says:

    I don’t think so, and this story (it’s not even a story really, is it, just a fairly meaningless observation) originated in the Sunday People which is on a par with In Touch. She’s doing promo stuff for this supermarket thing she’s hosting and as soon as it airs, I bet she’ll hotfoot it to Como. This one is well trained, and between editing Monuments Men and promoting Gravity, I don’t think Clooney will have the energy or time to recruit a new one for Venice etc.

    In any case, either way, dullsville.

  3. PHD Gossip says:

    It would be news if they were seen together. Ovah!!

  4. LahdidahBaby says:

    Why is everyone so sure that HE broke up with HER, rather than that SHE broke up with HIM?

    Ahahahaha, just kidding.

    • pao la says:

      ahaha you got me for a second!

    • Turtle Dove says:

      I do think that you have a point (excluding the humor). I think that his other GFs he got rid of, but it seems like Stacy is a bit more saavy and has used the relationship to springboard into some interesting projects.

      “… it just seems like Stacy is clinging and he’s letting her cling to this idea that they’re still sort of together.”

      She doesn’t seem like she’s clinging at. all. The woman seems kinda busy – book, show, appearances. If anything, I don’t think she’s giving him as much attention as the other women he’s dated. Good for her for living her own life. I think she’s always realized that the relationship has had a shelf life, and has used it to her benefit. It’s not like Georgie hasn’t done the same. Right?

    • Nalgene says:

      Lahdida and Poa,

      Your comments are made even more poignant given the update. Allow me to join you in your snark.

      • MoxyLady007 says:

        Hhmmmmm. My two cents.

        George is ready to move on to another woman and/or beard. While the handsome roguish bachelor facade he has crafted has it charms, people are tiring of it. Since he can’t completely go back on the party line – he doesn’t want kids etc- he can try to spin the story by being dumped. And worst of all, he was dumped by a woman who can’t accept him for who he is. She wants to change him and get him to have kids! But … She isn’t hot enough. And she knew he wasn’t going to marry her and she wasn’t going to be the trophy wife, so she dumped him. Hussy.

        Yes. It’s completely contradictory and completely illogical. But this seems to be the way the story is spinning.

  5. DanaG says:

    You forget Stacy has a new show that starts in a week or two. That is why George hasn’t made it official and the only reason it isn’t official. They broke up ages ago but Stacy being the no talent she is has needed to keep her “relationship” with George going so people will pay her some attention. It looks pathetic and let’s hope this time it get’s confirmed it has become a stupid game everyone knows she isn’t his girlfriend. As for George being alone just because we don’t see a girl doesn’t mean there isn’t one there! George can keep secrets when he wants too. Don’t worry word is Stacy has a boyfriend a real one. I love that these two haven’t been together in months and yet Stacy still wants to pretend everything is rosy and she and George are as strong as ever. It’s been denied one too many times already the gig is up time to grow up and admit it’s over so everyone can have a fun Summer and Stacy can go back to the D list where she belongs.

  6. mandy says:

    i think that this story become ridiculous !! we saw that he is more happy without his fake girlfriend !! serious : a couple who will be totally in love , will do anything for be together no ??
    one question ? there is no sex also ??3 months alone ??

  7. Eleonor says:

    Probably he is interviewing the candidates right now.
    They should make a tv program “George Clooney’s next girlfriend”.

  8. Megan says:

    I actually think Stacy may be better at playing the game than I was willing to give her credit for…. I think she is the one suggesting they spend so much time apart, just to keep him interested…. Or maybe they broke up. Lol

    • Sherry says:

      I think Stacy is playing this game very, very well! Unlike Elisabetta, who I think entertained thoughts of being an A-list wife to George, Stacy has parlayed her “contract” with George into a money-making career. She doesn’t seem clingy or anything else. She’s not running to the press, giving interviews, nada. She’s just taking jobs and making money.

      I think Stacy is coming off the winner in this arrangement and George is starting to look like what he is … an aging actor who hooks up with much younger women to make himself look good.

    • Tasha says:

      She not better at paying the game she just fallowed the rules. Lol

      George give almost all his ex girlfriends career boost at the end of the relationships/”contracts”. In 08 his ex Sarah Larsen got a top modeling job just before they split and he done the same thing to other ex girlfriends. It seems to be their “big pay off” or parting gift.


      I agree with you that Elisabetta was clingy but she got paid modeling jobs remember the photo shot she had at Cannes the last year they were together on a boat.

      Stacy did slip up when she posted pictures of her at George house to prove they were still together and so after the photos were remove. She learned her lesson and has been quiet ever since.

  9. kay says:

    Usually at the end of each of Clooney’s relationships, he is known for giving other Hollywood actors such valuable wisdom …while dating so many beautiful,intelligent females, the following day he was quoted saying “NEXT!”

  10. lady_luck says:

    Why doesn’t Stacey just grow a pair and PUBLICLY END THINGS with mr. committment-phobe – herself! That would be the smartest move she could make, imagine how much the press hounds would enjoy that.

    Get in there first, Stacey!!!!!

    It’s so obvious they are over.

    • DanaG says:

      What and give up the money and attention being George Clooney’s girlfriend get’s her? Most women with self respect would but Stacy wants to be famous and has no talent so she needs to hang on for as long as she can. No matter how stupid she looks and boy, does she look stupid! George doesn’t look that bright either.

      • Emily C. says:

        She doesn’t look stupid at all. She’s gotten a major career boost from very little “work”.

        George, otoh, can’t date someone near his age, or stay in a relationship for more than a year and a half or so. And yet he keeps insisting on having these trophy girlfriends. Now that’s pathetic.

      • ncmagnolia says:

        How exactly does Stacy look “stupid”? Because she doesn’t make a series of ill-advised interviews, push for the big diamond or the marriage license, and actually works for a living, unlike other celebrity girlfriends?

        I think she’s playing it smart and is parlaying the opportunites Clooney’s association have given her. No whining, no shame. Good for her.

    • Bubulle says:

      But that would mean they’re legit, her contract prevent her to do that.

  11. janie says:

    They neither one look happy in the last few photos. Many she did end things, stranger things have happened? I wonder what soured him on marriage so many years ago? I still love watching him on the big & little screen.

    • ataylor says:

      What soured him on marriage? Probably his not so easy divorce, which left him broke (or he at least he lost a whole bunch of money) afterwards, sleeping on the couch at his best friends house and with stomach ulcers.

      Yep. That’ll do it.

      Remember, this was BEFORE ER and the fame, so although he was a constantly working actor, it’s not like he was rolling in dough at the time.

      You know who else I feel could go in this direction depending on how his divorce and current relationship works out? Ashton Kutcher.

      Usually most guys I know that are so soured on marriage are those who have gotten divorced and then lost a whole bunch of money in the process. Call me clairvoyent, but I see Demi ending up with a serious payoff from Ashton just to get rid of her.

  12. Emily C. says:

    I doubt Stacy is clinging. She doesn’t seem the type. I think George is just tired of shopping for new girlfriends. That doesn’t mean he and Stacy are still in a relationship as most of us would understand it, but whatever it is, it seems to work for them.

  13. Kasia says:

    I’m just wondering…how many girlfriends are still ahead of him? He’s going to lose his thunder sooner or later. I feel sad for his girlfriends, at some point they all must realise they’re just another product with an expiry date…

  14. Miss M says:

    “Meanwhile, is George actually at Lake Como without a girlfriend?”

    Yes! Sarah Larsen never had a chance to go to Como, poor thing…

    Last year he went to Venice by himself because Stacy was reading his dating instructions and memorizing all the rules.

    Sorry George, I just came back from Italy, lol.

    • ataylor says:

      Yes she did. She was there the summer she got into that motorcycle accident with George. There are pics floating around the ‘net.

    • 2blonde says:

      Sarah L actually did get a short stint at Com..she spoke of it and there were a few pics..then they returned to ny area where accident happened..funny, she’s probably the only one who made it to red carpet (the ones who don’t have better stories) who seemed capable of actually uttering a complete sentence. I don’t watch wrestling, so I didn’t know who this one was, but I saw her on a talk show and she was so smiley/vapid, felt sorry. Cloo do love the young dumb wannabes..he’ll have lots more (private) before the next public one.

  15. Cody says:

    I think they are waiting till the premiere of her new show for the announcement , but like all the others she will fade into the sunset. IMO she really has no talent and the only reason she got the job of hostess for a Lifetime show is because it is a Harvey Weinstein production and Harvey and George have worked together . She comes off as empty headed and the high pitch voice is annoying, It is a lifetime cable show premiering in the middle of the summer. It will be Stacy who.

  16. lisa2 says:

    I know that people think being with George is so great. But George doesn’t do much of anything. He works, goes out to drink, and vacations in Como. Yes that is a gorgeous place. But what else do they do together. Outside of being on a boat. What other interest do they share. George has a bad back so I don’t see them hiking or jet skiing or any real active things. He plays basketball with his friends and he and Randy are kind of weekend bike riders.

    I know lying on a beach and living in Como is the “life for some” but George seems rather boring to me.

  17. lisa says:

    he might not have a movie this award season so he might not need a replacement so soon

    as soon as she agreed to host anything with supermarket in the title, you knew her hourglass was running out

  18. Jayna says:

    What’s sad is these woman hang on while he sees them less and less and less and HE finally ends even that. Why can’t one of them leave him before he passive aggressvely pushes them to end it, or if they still hang on, he has to end it. Why not end it when he seems a little disintrested and get out with pride. Not his women. They hang on until the last morsel of attention from him is gone.

    • lady_luck says:

      Agreed. Was in a relationship like myself. They keep you hanging on with crumbs and little strings of interest, but never really want to commit to a full-time thing. It’s shocking what that kind of situation does to a woman’s sense of pride, self-esteem and confidence. It erodes all of it and you are left feeling like an empty shell searching for some type of meaning and validation that you are not otherwise getting from this so-called “partner”.

      I can see that in Stacy now, she spends most of her time convincing herself she’s fine, plunging herself into putting on this cheery face and partying, shopping, excercising, spiritually meditating and whatever, meanwhile in the back of her mind, the anxiety of dealing with an absentee hot/cold partners wrecks havoc on her sanity.

      There are those saying she is reaping it with endorsements, roles, gigs, promotions, whatever. Sure, it might be the case, but inside she’s a trembling wreck from having to deal with a false partnership.

      • Nina W says:

        She hardly seems to be pining away and any woman who gets involved with George knows exactly what she’s getting. I don’t feel sorry for Stacy, she seems to be doing just fine and if she was foolish enough to imagine he would stay with her forever that’s her fault for being silly.

  19. BooBooLaRue says:

    Oh George! I can’t keep a relationship either, so we’re perfect for one another. My turn!

  20. epiphany says:

    George doesn’t need a woman while at Lake Como – that’s where his boyfriends are! Ask the locals in Tuscany. He can easily deny rumors that he’s gay, because he’s not. George is happily “multisexual.”

  21. Yoli says:

    People magazine just confirmed the split…..

  22. Jen says:,,20715159,00.html

    Presented without comment… (See yoli above)

  23. Tiffany says: confirmed it. They are over.

  24. pnichols says:

    George is gay. Lets press on.

    • Jane says:

      I don’t think he is gay, but I do think he is immature as far as being selfless in his personal life. He is rich, good looking and a major star, the perfect storm for living a life of being able to do just as he pleases and not having to answer to anyone.

      He has huge problems with commitment and all that comes with it. He probably sees no reason to change because he can pretty much have whoever he wants. If that’s the way he wants to run his life, to each his own. But one day it will catch up with him.

    • Nina W says:

      What would be the point of deep-closeting and show-mances if he is gay? This is not the 1950′s if George Clooney were gay literally no one would care if he came out. Honestly, I really don’t know who he prefers to bed but the whole “he’s gay, she’s bearding” thing is just silly and illogical. He’s not some Disney star with some squeaky clean image, he’s an aging playboy, nobody would care if he was gay, nobody.

  25. bella bella says:

    I read over the weekend in The Daily Mail that they were DEFINITELY split. I laughed because I believe Kaiser called it weeks ago that the announcement would happen over July 4th weekend, and it DID! You know your stuff, Kaiser! Kudos!

  26. junegorilla says:

    She probably has a picture of Annette Benning in her room with a candle burning. Because no one was a bigger womanizer than Warren. All of W’s girls would try to go along, be the cool girl, “Oh commitment? Yuck. How bourgeois, how pedestrian. Then Warren gets engaged and announces “Well, Annette is the only woman who told me that she wanted to get married and have a family.” The hopefuls ALL try to hang in there with George, Leo, Jack, etc.

    • Jen says:

      Probably. Most of the world knows George is not interested in having a family or getting married, so why stick it out for two years knowing it would not happen. But she got a TV show, some really great clothes and introduction to many important people in the business. So, I am sure she is just fine.

      I think George is basically a gentleman and when he tells her it is over, he gives the woman the opportunity to publicly end it, as long as she does not trash him. He probably has someone in training and will be introduced at the Venice Film Festival.

  27. Bubulle says:

    Keibler has been friend with Clooney for a while way before they start dating, I refuse to believe she was deluding herself with the whole getting married and having children, she knew from the begining this was going nowhere, she agreed to be his temporary GF in exchange of a career boost and voila.

  28. Alida says:

    Better catch up.. People has reported the break up and cited the marriage and kids as the reason

  29. LAK says:

    oh for the innocent days when he was with [insert name] and we believed it was a real relationship and the BS excuses why it didn’t work out…..

  30. Emily C. says:

    Oh it’s ended because she wanted marriage and babies and he didn’t AGAIN, I see. Yep. That makes perfect sense, that every single relationship he has would last for pretty much the same amount of time and end for precisely the same reason.

    I believe this is part of the contract. Same reason every time. Really, what are the odds that every single woman he dates would want marriage and babies, and on exactly the same timetable every time? And he can’t find a woman who doesn’t want marriage and babies, seriously? Come on.

    This sham is going to start costing him very soon. It’s too obvious. He’d better come up with a different reason for ending the next relationship with a contract girlfriend, because this is a farce.

  31. break says:

    Has he ever dated a woman when she was over 35?

  32. Nev says:

    what’s worst and more IDIOTIC? (and SAD)

    FAKE relationships over and over and over top pretend your straight!!!!…or a measley sex tape?

    their all the same.

  33. Jayna says:

    Of course she dumped him — this way. His passive-aggressive behavior forced her to. He wasn’t so romantic, barely cared and was probably aloof, always had plans. When he saw her he was pleasant, nothing more. Guys do this so they don’t have to do the actual break up. They force you to finally get it and break up, but we all know who really broke up – George.

    It had nothing to do with babies at this point. They guy lost interest in her, so what was she hanging on for? People keep saying babies. That would infer he was still in love with her, madly passionate about her, but just didn’t want children. I don’t buy he was still crazy about her. He lost interest in her long ago.

  34. ClaireB says:

    “In a recent interview with PEOPLE to promote her new show Supermarket Superstar”


  35. serena says:

    I don’t think he pick up chick who wants kids. I mean, at the start I bet he choose the cool ones that says ‘I don’t care about children and marriage’ but then.. they fall into the trap and he’s done with them.

  36. stinky says:

    i’m not getting what the big deal is that he doesnt want marriage or kids …. and im also not getting why everyone sounds so concerned about the breakups, and then the next girlfriend, etc. relationships play out. if he’s not looking for a lifetime partner or wife, then doesnt it make sense that he has a series of shorter relationships instead? whats so criminal about any of it? yes, the gals are somewhat younger than he is but THAT’s nothing new! i’m trying to care but i just cant.

  37. Cicada says:

    I’ll take George and his two-year relationships over skeevy Leonardo DiCaprio any day.

  38. lisa2 says:

    Why was it necessary to make a point of the relationship ending because of Marriage/Kids. George has never wanted either. So not a surprise.

    What I don’t understand is a woman going into a relationship when you want that family. Why would you spend a minute with a man that doesn’t want those things and you do. I get loving someone. I have never wanted kids. And knowing that have never began any relationship with someone not letting them know that from the beginning. I just never thought it was fair to that other person. George has always been honest. Stacy knew that. If everyone recalls her saying in Oct ’12
    (I had to find it)

    “That is not on my radar at all,” Keibler told me earlier today. “I’m definitely the girl who doesn’t talk about that kind of stuff. I’m not really interested in thinking about marriage or kids at all.”

    “I live in the moment,” Keibler said. “I’m more of a guy that way.”

    ***** That was 8 months ago. I guess she changed her mind. Her right. But the thing is George never changed his.

  39. lucy2 says:

    “Why does George always pick the ladies who want kids?”
    The real question should be, why would any ladies who want kids pick George? He’s not going to get married. He’s not going to have kids. He’s been 100% clear on that for years, and everyone knows it.

  40. skuddles says:

    Ah, I see she held out for the “I dumped you” media clause in their contract.

  41. mrsmc says:

    Whatever, she knew what she was getting when she dated him, a good time and no commitment.

  42. stay-cee says:

    Idk i still think george and amy poehler should get together lol

  43. Lillefot says:

    He always picks the ladies who wants to have kids because he picks them too young!if kids is never going to be an obtion he should go for somebody a lot older than 30-something.i mean,come on….offcourse she want’s kids,and good for her not settling for anything less if that is what she desires in life.

  44. Stacia says:

    What the hell do these women see in this OLD FART. He’s not that good looking. By no means is he a Brad Pitt type. I can only guess that he gives their profile a bit of a boost by being attached with him. He needs to get with women HIS OWN AGE and those that want the same lifestyle that he does. Hey George, stop dating 20 and 30 y/o and get with chics in their 40′s and 50′s.

  45. Jag says:

    She’ll be fine. And the reason he picks women who want to have kids and get married is so that when their contract expires, they have a ready-made excuse for “dumping” him. Then the woman looks good, he is still himself, and life goes on as scheduled.

  46. Tessa says:

    I think she’s hotter than he is. Old George has seen better days. I don’t doubt she got sick of the arm candy routine and wanted something more. She doesn’t seem stupid. She’s probably interested in something real, that doesn’t have an expiration date.

  47. Dommy Dearest says:

    I hope she actually dumped him. So tired of this guy. Does he make movies anymore or does he just stay in the press due to his love life? -really not sure-

  48. Manchurian Global says:

    Maybe I’m in the minority here, but I actually believe she dumped him.

    I know someone who was dating a famous athlete (not going to name him) and their relationship was basically him traveling, doing his thing, and her being available at his beck and call when he was in town and needed a woman on his arm.

    They were definitely boyfriend and girlfriend, but he didn’t even want her to work, just be available for him. He paid her bills and put her up in an apartment, but after spending too much time sitting around and waiting for him to call, not working or doing anything productive, and wondering what would happen if he dumped her, she ended up dumping him.

    I’m not saying that his is exactly what happened, but apparently this is quite common. Obviously Stacy likes to work, so it’s entirely possible she kicked him to the curb. Just my two cents.

  49. Holden says:

    2 year contract was up, option to extend denied. Thanks for playing George Clooney’s girlfriend for two years, please sign the NDA on your way out the door and remember to say its because you want marriage and kids someday.

  50. nemo says:

    well, it lasted longer than what some of us expected…

  51. Janet says:

    Could be this time around she did the dumping. If so, good for her. She always impressed me as being smarter than her predecessors.

  52. Maria says:

    the marriage/kids angle is used because it takes the blame away from George. everyone knows he doesnt want it so people will just say “oh she should have known, he was honest from the beginning, her fault, dont try to change your man etc”.

    i dont think he is gay like some people think. why would he get so much focus on his dating life then? he could easily find a traditional housewife who would put up with him doing men on the side for his status and the jealousy from other women that she caught him.

  53. Hmmm says:

    George always gets younger gals, that’s why they always want kids/marriage. Pull an old fart your own age George, and who is already “fixed” and can’t have any more kids, and you’re all set!

  54. Luna says:

    I really can’t feel sorry for this beautiful D-Lister who has made more money just by being seen with him than she ever would’ve in her life.I think George tells them in the beginning that they only get about 2 years or 2 Academy Awards shows, whichever comes first.But atleast she can dye her hair back to blonde.Like we don’t know he told her to dye her hair brown for the red carpet.Pft.

  55. Mari says:

    I’ve grown so unbelievably tired of George’s nonsense with these girls. You can replace any of the girls’ names in the last 5 years and the story reads the same. *yawn*

  56. Anne De Vries says:

    Mmm, I don’t know. Of all his girlfriends Stacy gave the impression she was fairly pragmatic about what it meant to be with him – fun for a while, doesn’t hurt her career, but there’s never going to be the kind of future she wants for herself.

    I could see George just being content to let it drift on for a bit and her realising that she’s gotten everything out of the relationship that she’s going to get, so there’s no point dragging it out further.

  57. Jade says:

    I’ve never liked any of his girlfriends except for Stacy. She seems like she knew what she was getting into. That’s smart enough of her instead of being delusional about changing George. I know many may not agree but she is gorgeous and her body rocks. As for who dumped who, doesn’t really matter to me since his love life is a revolving door anyway.

    Response to ataylor:
    This makes me laugh because Clooney’s ex-wife got on with her life and scored John Slattery aka Mad Men’s Roger Sterling.

    And on another note, I didn’t know Talia (Clooney’s ex-wife)is Martin Balsam’s daughter. He was a great character actor.

    Now I wanna watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s or MST3K’s take on Mitchell.

  59. The Original Mia says:

    They haven’t been together since Germany. Not really a surprise they aren’t still together. Oh, well. If they are good with each other, then no reason for me to hate on him or her.

  60. We Miss You Enclave_24 says:

    I dont blame him for not wanting marriage or children. I give him extra credit for not being generic.

  61. Jen says:

    What I find most amusing about all of this, is that this is the EXACT same conversation that was on this blog when he split last time. Folks who know how should do a screen shot and post this in two years when it happens again.

    Shampoo, rinse, repeat!!

  62. Miss M says:

    “They haven’t seen each other in a while and they’ve both been working so much, so in recent months, they’ve started growing apart,” a second source tells PEOPLE.

    Many of us here said they would be working and their amount of work would be the reason/excuse for a split.

    Good luck on your show and Goodbye Vivian Ward!

    ps: I don’t believe she ended, as Jayna said George is one of those guys who drives women to break up.

  63. Aqua says:

    No matter who has done the dumping their is no denying that Stacy has done very well for herself.She has upped her appearance fee allowing her to have a nice little nest egg saved up,an acting gig here and there and a new reality T.V. show,not to mention the countless other perks she has received for simply being George Clooneys Girlfriend.Not to shabby for putting in a couple of years.BTW George has said to lets the girl do the dumping.I bet it’s so that he doesn’t always look like the bad guy in the end.

  64. magpie says:

    “Why does George always pick the ladies who want kids?”

    So he has a good excuse when the contract is over.

    He just needs an escort and he’ll find another. Same age, mommy making age, but not too young to look too skeevy.

    Stacey knew the gig from the get go and she did better than the rest. She’ll parlay this into some kind of C-list career, which is better than Elizabetta or Sarah did. Good for her. Her real prince will come some day.

  65. Ravensdaughter says:

    Stacey Keibler-two thumbs up, girl. I don’t care if you work on tacky shows or wear tacky clothes or do anything else tacky (including working your exposure with Clooney to get your own gigs)-YOU have a backbone, and you deserve credit for that,
    Maybe Georgie Boy will think twice about his “two year plan”, which is tackier than any of the things Stacey has done or will do COMBINED. I would rant about what a hypocrite Mr. Save the World is-he obviously has major issues in his personal life with women-but I am sure one of you ladies can take up where I left off. I have to be humane myself and walk my 12 year old dog…

  66. Fabgrrl says:

    Why does George always pick ladies who want kids? Because he always picks ladies in their late 20s/early 30s. Generally the time of life when women want to figure out their baby plans. If he wants a lasting relationship (big if) he should date a woman over 40. You know, closer to his own age.

  67. stinky says:

    im kinda interested in a timeline photo gallery… lil ms keibler cleaned up her act considerably with george’s help (ie: money) i remember her looking pretty rough when they first hooked up. she has NOTHING to complain about, and it IS nice to see that she’s not doing so. no harm – no foul.

  68. abbie246 says:

    I disagree that Stacy made herself a career. Just like all of his other girlfriends, she will be another “where are they now”? girlfriend. They get a bunch of guest spots and paid appearances while they date him. Then they pretty much fall off the face of the Earth when they break-up. A cheesy gameshow on Lifetime is hardly job security. I also think most of his girlfriends technically breakup with him. They tell him they want marriage or they’ll leave. Clooney says “don’t let the door hit you on the way out”. Based on his demeanor I think George want companionship not love. The girlfriend always seems more invested.

    @Kaiser: George doesn’t keep dating women who wants kids. He keeps dating 20 year olds. If he dated women in his age bracket this wouldn’t be an issue.

  69. Moana says:

    I LIKE how SK played her cards. Anyone who signs a contract with Gay Clooney knows he’s not going to marry. She can be on her way. And she’s not the worst he’s done. Maybe his next g/f will be a guy.

    • bluhare says:

      If he really is gay, the fastest way to shut that down would be to get married. A nice contractual marriage with a “do what you want as long as it doesn’t go public — on either party’s part” clause would shut those rumors down.

      • Jen says:

        I disagree that marriage would solve the “is he or isn’t he gay” rumor. If being married shut down gay rumors, then Cruise, Travolta and even Hugh Jackman would not have to constantly fight those rumors.

        Personally, I don’t think he is gay, just a commitment phobe and a control freak. He likes his freedom and his way of life and will not change his Lake Como house for anyone. Women know what they get when they date Clooney. A couple of years of red carpets, nice clothes, nice vacations and meeting A list actors and others in the business. If anyone wants something else, then don’t date Clooney. He is also a bit of a jerk to have these rules. He a Leo are full of themselves.

      • bluhare says:

        I don’t think Cruise is gay; just weird. And Travolta should stay out of steam rooms. Jackman? Don’t know. But there’s a lot of ways someone can cover up if they want to. Heck, Sandra Bullock hid a baby for over two months of incredible scrutiny and no one had a clue. Two months isn’t very long, granted, but this was when every pap in the country wanted her photo and probably would have jumped through 1000 hoops to get it.

  70. Miss M says:

    For those of you all happy “she broke up” with Clooney….girlfriend gave an interview to E! back in 2006 that she would love to be involved in a gossip about an engagement with George Clooney. She had this goal in life and went for it. I don’t feel sorry for her and I am not mad at him. Both knew their roles in this “relationship”.

  71. Leslie says:

    George looks much older than 52 if he’s not in a movie and wearing makeup. So, if he’s not having sex with these women he hooks up with for two years at a time, do they have a BF hidden away on the side?

  72. Lark says:

    Seriously think George is gay or the rumors that he is bi and into really rough stuff. It’s getting so obvious, with the two years and every woman being in her late twenties to early 30s. There is also something off about Leo’s relationships, all of his girlfriends are nearly identical tall blondes under the age of 25. Maybe Leo and George can get together and we can have “Di Clooney”?

  73. the artful dodger says:

    She’s 33? I thought she was one of those late 40′s women that are just in really good shape. Must be the years of tanning or something.

  74. Audrey says:

    Money isn’t everything. Why don’t people believe that she didn’t break up with him? Perhaps she was tired of his old ass and all the money in the world wouldn’t make him that 35 year old stud he used to be.

    Honestly, you all are projecting…

  75. Amanda_SC says:

    I think it’s pretty obvious what happened. Her contract was up. Everyone is in on “George’s Game,” so this time she did the official breaking up – to put a spin on things. The “marriage and kids reason” is just an easy excuse and it’s been cited over and over again, so they just went with it one more time. He probably has been shopping for a new GF for a while and we will hear about her very soon. As far as whether he is gay or not, who really cares. I just wish that he would stop with all of these fake romances. Nobody buys it anymore and it makes him look foolish. Also, I agree with the comments above re: he’s getting older and losing his looks. However, with his money and celeb status, there will always be another Stacy (or insert name) that will be willing to be his contract gal pal in hopes of getting her 15 minutes of fame. I seriously doubt that anyone believes they can change Clooney at this point. They have to agree to this type of arrangement for the attention it brings. Either that, or just be in it for the fun of it and realize it’s a dead end relationship.

    • rudy says:

      this this this this X a billion.

      I am SO sick and tired of fake hollywood relationships. Who cares?

      Come on George! Be real. Just effing date who you want. You think no one will hire you? Are you kidding? You will be hotter than ever if possible.

  76. palermo says:

    Yes, he’s still gay …

  77. Elizabeth says:

    George Clooney single, Christmas came early this year.

  78. Moonchile says:

    Anybody interested in my thoughts about this?

    First of all, it’s good, that this charade has come to an end.
    I don’t think, that they ever were a couple. She had to act as his escort on official dates. I bet there was also a contract. By the way, they did not look good together, they somehow didn’t match.
    Some photo series taken of him in the last year or so gave the impression, that he has occassionally problems with certain substances. It would not be suprising, since it seems that it runs in the family. But I think that this could be the reason, why he refuses to have kids, cause you do pass it on. He is most certainly snipped.

    In order to sell his products (movies, advertising) he has to keep up the image of a womanizer. I think that’s all there is to it.

  79. Thora says:

    Meh. He’s another old man like Brad Pitt. Who cares about his sex life? He’d climax once and fall asleep.

  80. Rick D says:

    simple; they reached the 1000 load limit – time for GK to get another bucket.
