Clooney, 52, and Keibler, 33, had been dating about two years. Clooney was married before and is well known for saying he won’t marry or have children.
The Baltimore Sun called their relationship “on again off again.”
The couple apparently hadn’t been photographed together since March, with Clooney hanging out in Italy for the Fourth of July while Keibler celebrated in Malibu.
People magazine reported that the split was amicable. Most people thought Clooney and Keibler had already split up, so many online conversations centered around how quickly Clooney would find a new girlfriend.
No one should be surprised at the reason for the break-up, Crushable.com said
, adding that you could have predicted it two years ago.
“Lady wants a family one day, and playboy George doesn’t want that? Yep, everything looks to be in order. Congratulations, world, we can all predict the future!” wrote Jill O’Rourke.
The breakup brought rumors that Clooney is gay back to social media sites, something the star has denied.
“Personally I don’t give a rat's behind on whether George is gay or not. He’s been very open for many years on his opinion of marriage and having children so none of the women he dates should be surprised by this revelation,” wrote Casey1 on the New York Daily News story
Keibler is reported to be busy preparing for her July 22 debut as host of “Supermarket Superstar.” Clooney just finished filming “Monuments Men,” People reported.
