When you’re right, you’re right.
More than two weeks ago, RadarOnline.com told you that George Clooney‘s ex, Elisabetta Canalis, and Steve-O of Jackass fame were dating, and now, a picture has been released of them smooching!
As we first reported on January 13, the Dancing with the Stars alums met through mutual friends and have been spotted dining and canoodling around Hollywood for weeks now.
On Monday, the 33-year-old Italian actress and the 37-year-old Jackass wild man — whose real name is Stephen Gilchrist Glover — were spotted smooching in L.A.
Although they may appear to be an odd couple, an insider explains the attraction.
“Steve makes Elisabetta laugh, and that’s her weakness. That was her favorite thing about George Clooney-he was always cracking her up and playing practical jokes on her,” the source shares. “Believe it or not, George has a little Jack Ass in him, and ever since Steve-O got sober, he’s very sensitive and introspective, so Elisabetta is getting the best of both worlds.
“They’re not serious yet, but they are definitely hanging out, and hooking up. They are trying to stay under the radar, so they mostly hang out at her place and watch movies and order in. But they also hit some low key restaurants around her neighborhood too.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Elisabetta has been single and ready to mingle since splitting from her last boyfriend, True Blood hunk, Mehcad Brooks last November.
Prior to Brooks, she dated Clooney for two years, but last June, they called it quits. (Clooney reportedly dumped her.)
At the time, the couple released a statement saying, “We are not together anymore. It’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.”
After her split, Canalis headed to Los Angeles, where she appeared on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
