Clooney and Keibler became close after they were introduced to each other by a mutual friend. Keibler has since flown to Italy to join “Ides of March” star Clooney at his home on Lake Como and the couple are enjoying spending time together.
A friend of Clooney’s said in an interview with “Life & Style” that George is enjoying getting to know Stacy Keibler, a former WWE star who also took part in “Dancing With the Stars.”
However, George Clooney is mindful of the fact that he has just emerged from a two-year relationship with his ex. Clooney split from Italian television presenter Elisabetta Canalis in June after dating her for nearly two years.
He says he is not ready for anything serious. He considers his relationship with Stacy Keibler to be a “fling” and says it is “purely for fun.”
Keibler has also not commented on a possible romance with Clooney. However, she did confirm on Twitter last month that she was traveling in Italy. She wrote at the time: “I just can’t stop eating! I’m in love w Italy, every single part of it… (sic)”
George Clooney’s rep has not yet comment on the report about whether the star is officially dating Stacey Keibler. The actor recently denied press reports that he planned to debut a new girlfriend at the 68th Venice Film Festival later this month.
Clooney’s next directorial effort, “The Ides of March,” opens on October 7 in the US and October 28 in the UK.
