After two years, George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis have called it quits, according to People.
The reason behind the breakup is unclear, although the two issued a joint statement on Wednesday, confirming the split. "We are not together anymore. It's very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy."
Elisabetta, an Italian actress, first stepped out with the handsome actor in September of 2009 at the Venice Film Festival. The high-profile couple made it clear they simply enjoyed each other's company and did not want to get married or have children. "My maternal desires are fully satisfied with my dogs," Canalis told Cosmopolitan magazine last February.
The brunette beauty, 32, also told People that she was content with just being George's girlfriend. "I am happy to participate at events as the 'girlfriend of.'"
The former lovebirds were last spotted in May at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, celebrating Clooney's 50th birthday.
