George Clooney single again

In Hollywood time, being together two years is like ten years in real world time.

Hollywood actor George Clooney has split with his Italian girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis.

The two issued a joint statement announcing the end of their two year relationship.

“We are not together anymore. It’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy,” they said.

A spokesman for 32-year-old Canalis added: “It is a very personal and sad matter, and Elisabetta wants it to remain that way. She will be taking some time… and then will face the press.

“She has not authorized me to say when the split happened.”

The relationship between George Clooney, 50, and Elisabetta Canalis, 32, became public at the Venice Film Festival in 2009 and the pair have been spotted together in recent weeks, so the announcement is a surprise.

Clooney has previously been married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989-93.

Clooney’s new film The Ides of March, about a US presidential campaign, will open this year’s Venice Film Festival and compete for the coveted Golden Lion award.
