Inside George Clooney's love split
He's made it clear that after a brief unhappy marriage to actress Talia Balsam back in 1989 when he was 28, that he was never going to wed again - and sources are claiming that George Clooney's unbreakable romance rule was the cause of his split from Elisabetta Canalis.
In a telling joint statement, the pair insisted, "We are not together anymore. It's very difficult and very personal," with insiders pointing to an interview Elisabetta did last month with Italian magazine, Chi, which may have spelt the end.
"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," she told the publication. "I am a firm believer in marriage. In the future I will be married."
Pals close to the Italian TV presenter and wannabe actress claim that, although she knew how anti-marriage George was, that she believed after enough time together, he would change his mind.
"Elisabetta is a traditional girl and wanted the fairytale," an LA source told the Daily Mail. "But George has never made a secret of his feelings and he wanted things to continue as they were."
And George himself has admitted he's not great boyfriend material, insisting, "Women get bored with me working all the time. If I was my girlfriend, I wouldn't put up with me."
