Just weeks after Elisabetta Canalis' comments about one day being married were published, she and George Clooney have split.

"We are not together anymore. It's very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy," Clooney and Canalis said in a joint statement.

The couple was together for two years.

Canalis earlier told the Italian weekly magazine, Chi, that "I am a firm believer in marriage, in the future I will be married. But for the time being I am as happy as I am, I don't need anything to confim how happy I am."
