Stacy Keibler got married to ‘entrepreneur’ Jared Pobre in Mexico on Saturday


Wow, Stacy Keibler managed to achieve what has eluded so many of George Clooney’s ex-girlfriends: she actually got married. Not only did Stacy marry her first post-Clooney boyfriend, she did it within a year of her Clooney breakup! And the guy isn’t a loser either. Stacy Keibler married her boyfriend of about seven months yesterday in Mexico. The guy is Jared Pobre, and he’s being described as a “millionaire entrepreneur” (we talked about them when they first began dating last year). So, he’s not famous but he’s wealthy and they actually seem very happy together! So, congrats on the wedding!

Surprise! Stacy Keibler married tech entrepreneur Jared Pobre in an intimate sunset ceremony on a beach in Mexico on Saturday, PEOPLE has exclusively learned.

“My happiness is indescribable!” Keibler, 34, tells PEOPLE. “Marriage is the ultimate bond of love and friendship. It means putting all your faith and trust into a person that you can’t help but believe is your soul mate. Someone who has all of your best interests at heart; someone handpicked for you, to help you grow and be the best person that you can be. Jared is all of this for me.”

Although the small wedding was a joyful surprise for family members vacationing with the couple, Keibler and Pobre have been quietly planning the low-key celebration for several months.

“We both felt strongly that our ‘love day’ should be intimately special, and that’s exactly what it was,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement. “It was a blend of romance, tranquility, natural beauty, bonding and overwhelming love.”

Keibler, who amicably split from George Clooney early last summer, began dating Pobre, 39, in the fall. However, the two had been friends for over five years. An Orange County native, Pobre is the CEO of Future Ads, a private interactive firm he started in 2001. By 2009, it was one of the fastest-growing interactive companies in the country. This is the first marriage for both.

[From People]

Jared is apparently 39 years old, just five years older than Stacy, which makes this one of the more age-appropriate relationships that I’ve heard about in a while. Two single, never-been-married people in their 30s who met, fell in love and got married within a year? And both have their own money? Sure, it’s a non-event, but it’s still pleasantly surprising. The statement Stacy released to People is kind of funny though – I mean, she seems like she’s in a love-haze, so bless her heart. My cynicism is showing, I know.

But I am sort of proud of Stacy… she’s a woman with completely reasonable life goals who doesn’t overreach. Remember when Sarah Larsen thought she could be a high-fashion model? Remember when Elisabetta Canalis thought she could be a legit Hollywood actress? Stacy never bought into the hype. She aimed for a career in reality/competitive TV, and that’s what she got. She wanted to get married and she didn’t wait for Clooney to come around, nor did she wait for someone famous to ask her. Stacy might end up to be the most accomplished of all of Clooney’s ex-girlfriends.

    She is my favouritr ex-beard.

    • Zimmer says:

      Mine too. I like her. She seems to have a good head on her shoulders. She looks great in red too!

    • Cardi says:

      I’ve always thought Stacy was rather immature and silly. I disagree with her being smart; shrewd yes, but not too bright. She has no talent to speak of. C-list is all she could really hope for, tho likely wants more.

      My guess is that she’s either pregnant or timed this to get publicity. Imagine if she had waited 1-2 years, she would never have made it into People magazine.

      Shrewd, very shrewd.

      I hope this marriage isn’t just one more publicity gig. I think Jared is enjoying the spotlight as well. Maybe a reality show is in the works.

    • rerow says:

      Yes, she’s very nice. Saw her just last weekend at a restaurant in West Hollywood with this guy. She’s TALL! She was very smiley. Congrats to them. Wonder if George sends a gift? ;)

  2. Frida_K says:

    He’s cute but the last name kind of gives me a pause. Maybe he should change it to rico, since he is rich and not poor.


    That said, mazel tov to the newlyweds!

  3. Dawn says:

    Well good for her and congrats as well!

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Congrats and best wishes to both! I am getting an abnormal amount of satisfaction out of this. Go Stacey!

  5. Ellie66 says:

    Good for her! She seems happy I like her, she’s the best one of Clooneys exs. Good Luck!

  6. Holly says:

    I don’t know why I’m so happy for her — I kind of doubt she’s had trouble getting the attention of men — but I am! I’m just so oooover George’s stupid relationship antics that it’s nice to think someone involved with him ended up in a real and mutual relationship. It’s nice that she genuinely moved on.

  7. ali says:

    Five years of knowing each other makes the difference!

  8. Annie says:

    Pffft, I bet they’ve been dating for like 3-4 years. Anyway, congrats.

  9. Miss M says:

    Congrats to them! After partying around in Cannes (and other places) and “dating” Clooney ,She finally got what she always wanted and pretended following the Clooney’s script. Obviously, she wasn’t going to marry any Pobre guy , unless it was just the last name, lol.

  10. Blannie says:

    Good for her. I hope they’re happy ever after.

  11. Ms.Martin says:

    I’m not a huge fan of George , but I do believer he’s honest with these women from the start . And why does everyone call his life style “antics” ? Any woman over the age of 21 , with access to the internet knows full well his intentions . A lot of women think that they’re so spectacular that they can “change” him …. Not gonna happen ….

    • Poe says:

      Clooney’s actions are views as “antics,” because the way he pops from one relationship to the next is more of what someone in their twenties would do. He’s over 50 now correct? It makes him look like a total womanizer. Which he is, at least that is what he portrays in his actions. True, he will only change if he wants to. Only time will tell.

      • Jaded says:

        But why should he have to “change”? He’s not doing anything wrong, he’s honest with the women he dates, he just doesn’t fit into the one-size-fits-all mould of marry, procreate and live happily (?) ever after. He prefers to have serial monogamous relationships, then move on. Clooney is doing what suits him best. I’ve been single all my life and don’t have kids. I lived with one chap for 2 years, then another for 10, then just dated. Currently I haven’t been involved with anyone for a long time and people are aghast – they want me to meet someone and fall in love and get married. Well at 61 I doubt that’ll happen but I’m actually happy. That’s all that matters.

      • Isadora says:

        +1 Jaded.

        I’m happy for everyone who finds love in a marriage and family. But I’m also happy for everyone who has a great life dating or not dating as long as it’s honest. So George Clooney has no intention of marrying and procreating – so what? Actually I like his approach a lot more than people who compulsively marry one guy/girl after another, because that seems rather desperate to make it happen no matter what.

        And if he’s gay and just needs a beard, I’ll volunteer. He seems for all his egocentrism like an intelligent guy with a sense of humor and .. well.. I’ll just say Lake Como. And I’m definitely not interested in marrying him or having kids.

      • Mrs.Martin says:

        Why does he have to change ? He seems perfectly happy .. Is it because society deems it inappropriate ? George is living the life most men DREAM about ….lets get real

      • TheCountess says:

        +1, Jaded. You said precisely what I came here to say. I too am single, have never wanted to get married or have kids, have had a couple long-term monogamous relationships, a ton of flings and regret nothing (nor do I wish to change my ways). Personally, Clooney is a role model of living one’s life honestly. He’s forward about never wanting to be married (again). What more can someone ask but that level of honesty?

        It’s the partners that think they’re going to change him (or me) who are the dishonest ones.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I agree- as long as he’s honest about what he wants, I don’t see a big problem.

    • Holly says:

      I don’t know if anyone is ever really honest at the beginning of a relationship about where it’s going to end up because, by its nature, you can’t really know.

      If he’d been on a serial run of dating women his own age with solid careers then it would be something entirely different, but he generally “dates” cocktail waitresses, “models,” and people much younger. By the nature of their age gap and job/life experience, I doubt any know what they’re getting into at all when they become The Girlfriend.

      It’s not about marriage or kids or settling down IMO, it’s about treating someone with respect, considering them to be your equal in some manner, and the relationship being a blending of two lives — not just tagging along as a mostly-silent escort or date. I haven’t seen him give anyone that chance.

      • Lucky says:


        Holly, you nailed it in your last paragraph!

      • Isadora says:

        If he is indeed now dating Julian Assange’s lawyer then that would proof him capable of dating classy women. And to be honest – we have no idea what goes on behind closed doors, how he treats his women or how much they want into the limelight. Maybe this Elisabetta Canalis person was at first an intelligent and interesting being, maybe not, who knows…

      • sienna says:

        +1 Isadora

        It’s not just about how he treats them. It’s also about what the women is wanting or willing to put up with.

      • Nina W says:

        Who cares? It’s his life, if he wants to have short term relationships with immature women, so be it. I don’t understand the criticism he receives. He seems to be honest about his lack of desire to marry and have children. I’ve not heard any of his exes complain about him so I don’t think it’s fair to call him “disrespectful.” You don’t like his lifestyle but that doesn’t make him a bad person or a bad boyfriend.

    • Lunchcoma says:

      I find the fakeness of it a bit irritating. If he doesn’t want a relationship, fine enough, but then I don’t see why he needs to contract for these awards show dates or present these relationships as romantic. Why not just go stag or with a friend or business associate, and keep whatever casual sexual relationships he has private?

  12. Lark says:

    Good for Stacy. They knew each other for five years, so it sounds like they have a solid background with each other. I love that such a successful man’s last name is “pobre” (poor in Spanish) though…that’s hilarious.

  13. wow says:

    I’m happy for her too, but her grandiose statement to People Mag comes off as if she is trying to send a word of “validation” to George. As if the marriage ultimatum was probably given to him back then and she walked when he balked at the idea. Now she’s “proving” she is worth marrying. At least that how her statement reads to me. I could be way off though. At any rate, good for her. Her body is to die for but I do not like her as a brunette. She shines as a blonde. Congrats, Stacey.

    • Jigli says:

      You’re right! Why would she give a lenghty lecture on marriage, its definition and meaning to People when she could have just gushed about her husband and her happiness instead. I mean, who does that? I’ve never heard of anyone announcing their marriage with a marriage sermon.

    • Bridget says:

      I actually doubt that Stacy is retaliating for some sort of failed marriage ultimatum. She was actually the one Clooney girlfriend that seemed to consistently know the score, and didn’t overreach. On the red carpet and at events she knew when to hang back, she never played the bump-watch game, and most importantly she quietly put away a nice chunk of money doing appearance gigs while she could. She played her time as a Clooney girlfriend well, and someone who at least comes across as pragmatically as she would hopefully know that the lifespan of a Clooney girl was always going to be finite. I’m guessing she enjoyed her time, and was ready to settle down once it was over.

    • pru says:

      I found that statement grandiose, too. But I think it is more to do with the “selling” of her marriage as a story, than of something to do with George.

  14. wow says:

    I don’t think Clooney needs to change. He likes dating various women and doesn’t wish to get married again. Nothing wrong with that. It seems Stacy wanted marriage, kids and to settle down. I respect her for realizing Clooney wasn’t and never will be about that life so she apparently cut herclosses and found someone who’s on the same page as her. I wish more women would be this smart instead of staying years on end with a man trying to change them.

  15. P.J. says:

    Good. Now maybe she can finally stop with all the equally obvious and obnoxious paid product placement ‘candid’ pap picks in all of the tabloids 😒

    This recent-ish phenomenon is my least favorite celeb money grabbing move of all. It’s just so low rent and again, OBVIOUS what they’re (the paps, celeb in question and the mag) are up to: “Stacy Keibler was spotted picking up Cottonelle Fresh Wipes while out shopping recently at CVS.” *cue front facing, held up package* Right. Because photographers always follow C/D list stars into drugstores as they shop and they’re thrilled to hold up and show the camera what individual products they’re placing into their baskets. (Always multiples of the same thing.) Ugh. Mario Lopez and Maria Menunos (amongst others) are frequent offenders of this too.

  16. bettyrose says:

    If these are two people in love, good for them.But any woman who has Iissued a marriage ultimatum in her time is suspect in my book. Says to me that marriage is about winning not partnership.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I disagree. I think a person in a relationship has a right to know where the other person sees the relationship heading. I don’t mean you should issue ultimatums right and left, but after a couple of years, especially if one of you wants children, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to say, this is what I want, commitment and marriage. Is that what you want? If not, why continue the relationship? Sometimes both parties are fine with dating indefinitely, but if you’re not, I think it’s more dishonest and manipulative to pretend you’re ok with the way things are while secretly trying to steer them in another direction.

      • bettyrose says:

        But having a mature relationship with your partner us not an ultimatum. Since her behavior was described as an ultimatum, I picture it more as foot stamping and emotional blackmail, but I wasn’t there so I don’t know. In any case marriage is hardly a prerequisite for babies. Especially not out here in sunny CA.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        God, your response makes me ill. So it’s immature and emotional blackmail for her to try to discuss what the future holds for them as a couple, but it’s fine for her to just get pregnant without asking if he wants to be a father? It’s fine to bring a baby into this world with no more thought than buying a diet coke? That’s mature and indicates a great partnership to you. Ok. Have fun in sunny California. Livin’ the dream.

      • bettyrose says:

        GNAT – You’re taking this too personally. In my – oh so humble – opinion, as well as experience, it’s rare for couples who’ve been together for awhile to discover they have entirely different ideas about a relationship. And that’s not what happened here, either.

        George Clooney made it clear, per the tabs, that the relationship was not headed for marriage. Was he interested in children without marriage, I have no idea. I would never advocate a woman “trapping” a man with an unplanned pregnancy, but I cannot fathom why a woman who was eager for marriage and children would involve herself with a man like G.C. in the first place. If he was honest about his lack of interest in marriage – which celebrity gossip has led me to believe he was – then they did not have a “mature” discussion about the future of their relationship. She made a demand and he tossed her to the curb for being clueless.

        My point was that if her ultimate goal was to have a baby, which I doubt, she needn’t have wasted any time on a sworn bachelor. There are plenty of successful, attractive men in CA with less traditional ideas about marriage/gender roles than señor Clooney seems to have.

  17. The Original G says:

    Good for them! Mazeltov!

  18. Talie says:

    Smart girl, but I think it was evident from the beginning that she would be different. She played her game and seemed to understand Clooney very, very well. She got in, got out, and got the exposure with a respectable career.

  19. Isadora says:

    On a lighter note: I really like the red thing she’s wearing. It looks classy. The white dress that barely covers her boobs not so much…

  20. Lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them, but calling it “our love day”? Ew.
    Does she really have her own money? Wasn’t she hosting a show about groceries or something?

    • ScrewStewrat99 says:

      She has her own money. She was a wrestler in the WWE for a long time and I believe she had some health endorsements after that. She’s been here and there in television, so she may not be super rich, but she has a decent amount. Plus she was making money while being with Clooney.

  21. Anastasia says:

    Heh. Pobre. That made me chuckle. Congrats to them!

  22. kibbles says:

    Good for her. She got exactly what she wanted from Clooney then moved on with a low-key successful guy around her age who was open to getting married. She knows her place as a C-list celebrity, but still knows how to play the Hollywood game while understanding that most of these celeb guys are not the marrying type. That’s why even those who get married in Hollywood end up divorced. I’d much rather have a guy like Jared Pobre who is relatively unknown, wealthy, and built his own fortune in tech.

    George Clooney doesn’t need to change for anyone. It’s his life, his choice, and he has the money to continue buying 2-year contract girlfriends until he’s on his deathbed. However, that doesn’t negate the fact that he’s still a womanizer. I find his antics pathetic at this point in his life. A person can be opposed to marriage and still want a satisfying long-term relationship. He doesn’t seem to want a fulfilling relationship with a woman of his own stature or intelligence and that is what makes his love life and relationship choices pathetic.

    • Nina W says:

      I don’t think George is pathetic, he is honest and lives the life he wants and there is nothing wrong with that. You’re unloading your baggage on him by judging him because he doesn’t want a long term relationship. Not everyone has to conform to social pressure to pair off and people who stay single have every right to do so without getting grief over it all the time.

  23. Bubulle says:

    The timing for this is suspicious. I think she was dating her husband while being with Clooney, reminds me of when Reese married Jim Toth just a year after being done with Jake. Anyway congrats.

  24. Cody says:

    Didn’t she say that about George that they were friends before they started dating. She seems to go with we were friends before we started dating , as if she needs an excuse to fall in love and have what she called it “a love day”

  25. Ellen says:

    I agree, I bet there was overlap, with or without George’s knowledge/consent. Kudos to her for knowing who George was, enjoying his company, and reaping whatever financial rewards she could before moving on.

    George is 100% honest about his goals and expectations, and unlike Leo he’s never even pretended to be looking for “the right one.” I don’t shade him at all for serial dating but I do think it’s a little pathetic that he’s mostly gone for women without similar professional accomplishments. Kudos to him if he really is dating an equal for once (that London lawyer, I mean).

    • Bubulle says:

      Yeah kudos to GC for changing his MO, I’m sure he is perfectly aware no one is buying his fake relationships anymore, so now he is going for something unusual, doesn’t make him less pathetic.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I don’t think Leo’s ever shaded his girlfriends or his dating choices……

      I’ve heard him talk about marriage and babies three times—once was when he was on Oprah promoting ‘The Aviator’ and a (female) fan asked him if he ever wanted to get married and make babies. He said that he did, one day, but probably not any time soon. The second time was when he was promoting ‘Revolutionary Road’ with Kate Winslet–they were on the SAGs rc, if I’m remembering right–the reporter was asking her about why she wasn’t at a certain rc, and Kate said it was because she caught a cold from one of her kids, and the reporter said to Leo that one day he’d find out what it was like to catch all sorts of crap from your kids–Leo said hopefully, one day I will. The last time was with ‘Great Gatsby’, and Leo said he wasn’t sure if he would get married–something that he wanted, but he said he didn’t know what the future holds.

      I get that he’s a modelizing mama’s boy–but I like him because he doesn’t pull that ‘I want a baby and wife asap’ bs for the millions of female fans who watch all of his movies because he was Jack Dawson (a girl I went to high school with watches Titanic every time she’s sick)…..he’s always been very clear that it was something he wanted, but he wasn’t sure if/when he was going to. It’s not like his internet memes are about him getting married.

    • One Dimensional says:

      When I was watching Gravity it occurred to me that George Clooney is the most one dimensional actor in a long time. Guys like Leo and George are really not that bright or interesting. (Leo has a pussy posse, for pete’s sake!) The fantasy of going through one woman after another reveals a teen mentality. Nothing personal but most guys do grow up. To use women/people that blatantly (‘you’re just my current girlfriend until I meet the next one’) just seems so calculating. What is going through the heads of these ladies when it happens? Yes, the only redeeming factor is that he is upfront about it, but what does it say about the women who agree to this? Every one just a famew*ore using him back? But Stacy Keibler’s smart and her speech seems heartfelt but also a kind of ‘up yours’ comment to George.

  26. dahlia1947 says:

    I am very happy for her! Clooney who? :D LOL

  27. Dj says:

    Get ready for the pregnancy announcement.

  28. Jane says:

    Good for her and best wishes. She probably knew from the beginning, or quickly realized, any relationship with Clooney was going to lead no where. Except for publicity for her, but that is true of any of his dates. I suspect she is probably ready to move on in her life, maybe children in the future, and building a solid relationship with her husband that has a real future and rewards.

    Clooney is a nice guy, love to his see interviews because he is funny and sincere, and he is interested in humanitarian issues. But, the man just doesn’t have what it takes to be in a mature, lasting relationship with a woman that actually has meaning. I realize he doesn’t have to do that considering his fame and looks, but one day that will all go away and he will still be hooking up with his flavor of the year, young chick, who is there for the money and whatever publicity is left.

  29. Andrea says:

    It makes me wonder since they were friends for so long, If she was banging him on the side and there was some overlap?

  30. Lucinda says:

    She really grew on me over time so I’m very happy for her. I think of all the girlfriends, she knew exactly what this would do for her and she made the most of it in a realistic manner. The relationship seemed as much an investment for her as for Clooney.

  31. taxi says:

    Give Clooney credit for upping her style from her cheap stripper-wrestler look to usually decent clothing, makeup & hair color. She might not have been able to land Pobre if she hadn’t classed-up her wardrobe & hair color. Remember what she looked like at the beginning of her Clooney phase? Mostly like a hooker.

  32. Reece says:

    Congrats to them! She’s my fav Clooney ex…Actually she’s the only one I can name. ;)

  33. mimi says:

    Wow, that was quick! I hope she has finally found happiness with the right guy.

  34. Kelly says:

    Stacy got game, yay!

    Poor Clooney, what next for our eternal bachelor?? Always the best man, never the groom!

  35. DT says:

    Uh, wasn’t this the same woman who was quoted as “disinterested” in marriage? At least Clooney keeps his story straight.

  36. LAK says:

    Wow that’s questionable RC choices.

  37. bluhare says:

    I guess I’m the only one who thinks she’s as fake as cubic zirconia (and almost as sparkly).

  38. Turtlebaby says:

    When Stacy Kiebler or Sienna MIller or Kate Middlteton enter that old and ornery stage of their life I hope they write memoirs that are blueprints on how to spit game and marry well.

    This girl made somethin’ for nothin man

  39. Aqua says:

    @ Mrs.Martin “George is living the life that most men dream of” Is probably very true.On all of the T.V. entertainment shows all of them have at least one guy as a co-host or on a panel and ALL the men say that George can date a new woman every couple of years is because” he can because he’s George Clooney ,he’s living every mans dream”While.some of the women however view his dating life and new girlfriends with cynicism.

  40. seVen says:

    Eh.. George is (in my eyes) A total man whore. Im glad she found something real :)

  41. The Original Mia says:

    Congrats, Stacy! I like this woman and I’m happy for her.

  42. homegrrrrl says:

    Why do people commend a woman for shacking up right after a break up? “Oh, she’s so HEALTHY, she’s “moved on”. Why is “moving on” to another man considered superior in our culture? I was with a controlling abusive man, and the last thing I want is to feel trapped, let alone in a marital contract. So I’m seen as inferior; don’t you want to “move on?”, people say. No, I want to go back to school, finish a degree, continue to be an excellent parent, turn back or sustain my biological clock, have part-time lover, etc; isn’t self care of an authentic sign of “moving on”?

  43. A.P. says:

    Not surprising. When I first heard about them dating, I assumed she was dating him at least some of the time while she was beard-ing for Clooney.

    What is surprising is that Clooney didn’t show up to the Oscars with his newest beard, he usually rolls them out during award season.
