GEORGE Clooney has reportedly dumped his Italian girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis.
The Hollywood heartthrob apparently called time on the nine-month romance shortly after their appearance at the Oscars last month.
The break-up, sources say, was sparked by a row over Elisabetta’s partying.
“George loved her, but didn’t want that lifestyle,” a source told Britain’s Grazia magazine. “They’d been on the rocks since February, but held on to make it through awards season.
“They decided to go to the Oscars ceremony in LA together, but they didn’t attend any showbiz after-parties together. George jetted straight out to Hawaii on his own for a few days later.”
George, 48, has previously revealed how he prefers quiet nights in over partying.
“Priorities change as you get older,” he said earlier this year. “You find that the older you get, the more you are able to participate in other parts of society. The more sort of secure you are in your career the more you can focus on other issues.
“But I also find I have this great group of friends – and they’ve been a great group of friends for twenty years — and we find out that the older we get, the easier it gets for us to stay close and spend time together, just in quiet ways. Rather than how we used to.”
It had also been claimed that Clooney and Canalis came to blows because she’s jealous of the actor’s friendships with other women, it has been claimed.
“Elisabetta is crazy about George and she gets very possessive when George pays too much attention to another woman,” a source said earlier this year.
“When other women get too close to him she always slips her hand around his arm as if to say, ‘He’s mine!’”
