Single ladies around the world, rejoice! 

After a two-year courtship, George Clooney and Italian stunner Elisabetta Canalis have called it quits.

In a joint statement, the actor and the model said:

We are not together anymore.  It's very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.

There's no word on what caused the breakup, but some say it was Clooney's strong stance on staying a bachelor.  In an interview published this month, Canalis said, "I am a firm believer in marriage -- in the future I will be married.  But for the time being, I am happy as I am."
