The actor and his Italian girlfriend of two years Elisabetta Canalis have ended their relationship, People reports. "We're not together anymore," Clooney and Canalis said in a joint statement. "It's very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect out privacy."

Canalis' publicist also released a solo statement for her client, saying, "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 couple was spotted dining together just last week in Italy, so we're extremely curious to know when the split officially happened. Clooney and Canalis made their romance official at the Venice Film Festival in September 2009.
