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.

While George is considerate, he will never commit. I believe these women aught to know this going in. However, everyone of of these girlfriends believes they are the "special one" that George will commit to.

Women who think they have a chance with George, take note...if you haven't already. However, P.T. Barnum was correct when he said there is a sucker born every minute.

The way Clooney keeps going through these women, makes me really hate him... He seems like a self important asshoIe and he's not all that especially at his age... I used to think he was sexy but now he's just a pathetic mid life crisis having douche.

Of course they broke up over the phone they haven't been in the same country for months. And it was more Stacy begging and Clooney doing the dumping. Friends! Huh Stacy can now go back to her D list life hope she saved all the moolah she has made over the last almost 2 years.

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.
