The two met in 2006 at an Oscar party, where Clooney reportedly told Keibler he'd seen her on Dancing with the Stars. At the time, Keibler said:
"It's so funny. George Clooney came up to me, and he was like, 'You're so great. You should win.' And I said, 'You watch Dancing with the Stars?'"
Pretty much everyone in the United States does, and I guess somewhere between rescuing people in Darfur and rebuilding Haiti, Clooney finds time to vote for his favorite dancing celeb.
George split with Italian TV host Elisabetta Canalis back in June, after she said the "M" word in an interview with an Italian magazine.
"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," Canalis said.
George Clooney basically ran away after that. I'm surprised he didn't change his name and go into the witness protection program, because this dude is seriously scared of marriage. No one knows what Elisabetta was thinking. Maybe she was hoping he wouldn't understand the interview because it was in Italian.
Anyway, a month later, Clooney reportedly hooked up with Keibler.
"I'm in heaven," Keibler Tweeted July 8. The gushing continued: "I am the luckiest girl in the world," she added the next day.
George Clooney is like riding a mechanical bull. You know you're gonna get bucked off eventually, but you hold on for dear life and just try to enjoy it while it lasts.
Back in August,
Keibler a source told People that the two were only "spending time together" having fun. And while it wasn't officially dating, "it's not just a friendship at this point."
Keibler has remained pretty tight-lipped about her romance with Clooney, and only said:
"Anybody that knows me knows that I'm definitely a guy's girl. I just can really adapt to any kind of environment. So I can get all dressed up and have a great girls' night out, and then can also be playing beer pong with the boys. I'm always happy. Anybody that knows me knows that I'm a very happy person."
There was some speculation that the romance had already ended when Clooney didn't invite Keibler as his date to the Venice and Telluride film festivals.
He probably just wanted to avoid her showing up in a sequin bikini and pile driving people.
