George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis Split

You know that feeling when you're on a nice, relaxing vacation, but the further you get into it, there's the looming fact that it's about to be up?

I imagine that's what it's like to date George Clooney. Clooney and girlfriend of two years, Elisabetta Canalis have split, according to a joint statement.

"We are not together anymore," his rep told Hollyscoop. "It's very difficult and very personal and we hope everyone can respect our privacy."

Earlier in the month, Canalis revealed that she eventually wanted to get married. Chances are, Clooney got wind of this and ran as far away possible. In fact, I'm pretty sure all of George Clooney's involvement in foreign crises is actually just him running away from women who want to get married. Canalis told Italian publication, Chi:

"'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."

But she also told the mag: "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."

Clooney has made his stance on marriage clear, saying that "once was enough", regarding his marriage to Talia Balsam from 1989-1993.

Just last week the couple enjoyed a romantic candlelit dinner near Clooney's Lake Como home. They've dodged breakup rumors in the past, but this time, it looks like Clooney is officially back on the market.
