George Clooney and Stacy Keibler reportedly decided that their relationship was over during a phone call.
The Hollywood star's romance with the former wrestler recently ended after two years together. It has now been reported that the couple decided to go their separate ways during a civilised phone call. According to TMZ, they had been growing apart for a few months and had spent little time together. George has been working on his new movie The Monuments Men in Europe, while Stacey remained in Los Angeles as she was busy with TV show commitments.
"Both sides realised there is no way to have a relationship when you don't see each other," a source told the website.
George is reportedly scheduled to remain in Berlin until the end of the year, and Stacy seemingly decided it would be too difficult to maintain their long-distance relationship.
"The two talked out the situation like adults - and both agreed going their separate ways was best," the source added. "He was very respectful, adult about the situation... he reminded Stacey that they were friends before they dated and wants to be friends after."
When news of the split surfaced earlier this week, it was claimed 33-year-old Stacy had called time on the romance because she was desperate to have children. However, it has now been reported that "couldn't be further from the truth".
George and Stacy are believed to be eager to remain on good terms. They apparently talk "every day" and there are no hard feelings about the romance ending.
