Clooney takes on Us Weekly
George Clooney is rushing to ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis’ defense after an article in Us Weekly claimed she’d sent angry text messages to Clooney and his current girlfriend, Stacy Keibler. “I never comment on my personal life unless it affects others, and this lie affects others,” Clooney said in a statement to the magazine. “Since I would be the only actual witness, I ask you to correct your story immediately — but that would assume you cared at all about telling the truth.”
Taking in Radiohead
Exes Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson continue to prove to the world how amicable their split was, this time stepping out together to take in a Radiohead concert in New York City, according to Us Weekly. “Ryan and Scarlett came in together right before the show started and just watched, rocked out and left together,” says a source. “They just seemed like good friends.”
Wedding planning rough on Cowell
Simon Cowell admits that with “The X-Factor” taking up so much of his time, his love life — and impending nuptials — have to take a back seat. “It has probably been the busiest year I’ve ever had. Making the choice to get married is something you just have to decide when the time is right,” Cowell says, according to Hollyscoop. And his rep is quick to dash rumors that Cowell and fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy are on the outs. “You might have to wait 20 years for Simon to plan a wedding, but they are as close as they have ever been,” the rep insists.
