Notoriously private actor George Clooney has spoken out to dismiss reports his ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis sent him a series of angry texts after learning of his reported new romance.
The Hollywood hunk split from Canalis in June (11) and he is now rumored to be dating former female wrestler Stacy Keibler.
A report in US Weekly magazine this week (begs26Sep11) suggested Canalis was unhappy to learn about Clooney's new girl, and sent text messages to his cell phone expressing her dismay at the reports.
Clooney has now taken the unusual step of commenting on his romantic life to dismiss the rumors, and has demanded reporters correct their story.
He tells TMZ.com, "(The report) was completely fabricated in order to sell magazines. I never comment on my personal life unless it affects others... and this lie affects others.
"Since I would be the only actual witness, I ask you to correct your story immediately, but that would assume you cared at all about telling the truth."
