George Clooney’s Ex Talks Upcoming Weddings

By: Ellisha Rader Mannering - August 27, 2014

George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis isn’t the jealous type and she recently said that she is happy for Clooney and his upcoming wedding.

Canalis is also planning a wedding and both she and Clooney will marry their new partners in Italy this September.

Canalis told the Italian magazine Chi, that she is “happy” for Clooney, “But I am thinking only of my happiness.”

Canalis is engaged to orthopedic surgeon Brian Perri and the couple’s wedding date is set for September 14.

Canalis was excited to talk about her engagement and wedding and said,

“I chose the date some time ago and September is the most beautiful time — for those who do not know Sardinia — to appreciate it,” she told the magazine. “Otherwise I would have had to wait a year.”

“I met a 46-year-old man who has never married and does not have children, a rarity,” the Italian beauty said of Perri, adding that the ring he gave her, “is the most beautiful ring I have ever seen. Brian designed it, he put his heart and soul into it.”

Clooney and Canalis split up in 2011 after dating for a little over two years.

Clooney is now engaged to Amal Alamuddin and the two plan to get married at Clooney’s Lake Como home in Laglio, Italy next month.

The couple has been fairly quiet about their wedding plans, but both seem excited for the ceremony. The ceremony will only include their close family members and friends and while it will likely be lavish, it will also be a very private wedding.
