Clooney & Keibler

Broke Up Over the Phone

EXCLUSIVE

0709_george_clooney_stacy_keibler_articleGeorge Clooney and Stacy Keibler phoned in the end of their relationship ... as in, they broke up over the phone while they were half-a-world apart ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us ... the two had been growing apart over the past 3 months, with George in Europe working on a movie and Stacy in L.A. working on her new TV show.

But with Clooney scheduled to remain in Berlin until December -- Stacy decided she couldn't do the long distance for another 5 months.

One source tells us, "Both sides realized there is no way to have a relationship when you don't see each other."

We're told the two talked out the situation like adults -- and both agreed going their separate ways was best.

So how did George handle it? Like a friggin' gentlemen -- "He was very respectful, adult about the situation ... and they discussed the fact that they were friends before they dated and want to stay friends after."

There are reports that Stacy was pushing GC for kids and that's why the relationship fizzled -- but we're told that couldn't be further from the truth.

Let's be fair TMZ. It's been over for at least a few months. You know how the end of a relationship goes; you are no longer enjoying being together, things die down, you start wishing the other person wasn't around. They hit that point a while ago and why spend time and money to travel across one to another continent look each other in the eye to confirm what was going on? They probably had a good talk and confirmed what they both knew. End of story.

I wish everyone would realize you were friends before you dated or got married.

Do not feel sorry for Stacy, she knew going into this relationship how it would end up.

Clooney is too into himself to share his life with anyone.

and who believes the excuse...."their busy schedules" really? I guess everyone but Stacy knew she was past her expiration date.
He will now go on to another mistress.

George and Stacy are very classy people, most other couples break up by a non WWE screaming match!!! #StayClassyMyFriends

Now they can both move on and who's to say they won't get back together in the future.

I think she'll be a lot happier without him. And he needs to just come out already.
