Has George Clooney broken up with his girlfriend  Stacy Keibler? Say it ain’t so! Not Keibnley, America’s favorite celebrity sweethearts!

OK, so probably no one’s that invested in Clooney’s relationship with his umpteenth girlfriend, presumably including Keibler herself, who must have known what she was getting into with the perennially single star. Anyway, a source says they’re done. They haven’t been spotted together in weeks, and Clooney spent the Fourth of July, that most romantic of holidays, at his Lake Como home without her, according to the Daily Mail.

“George is quietly backing away from the relationship. It’s always the same. As soon as he feels a woman is getting too close he pulls back,” the source says.

Always the same, that George. I wonder if he really will repeat this pattern forever, or if someday he really will find The One, and it’ll be me. Just something I wonder about.

George Clooney and Stacy Keibler haven’t been photographed together since March, which means that either she is his secret identity or possibly that they’ve broken up. They stepped out hand-in-hand for dinner in Berlin amid rumors that the couple’s relationship is in trouble, according to E! News. Clooney and Keibler were dressed casually and were joined by Matt Damon after dinner at Soho House. Clooney is in the German capital filming “The Monuments Men.”
