Elisabetta Canalis Describes Time with George Clooney as 'Father-Daughter Relationship'
Italian journalist Bruno Vespa has written a tome about love, in which Elisabetta reveals that the two had more of a "father-daughter relationship," according to excerpts on People.
"Between us there was more of a father-daughter relationship. I was unable to clarify this up 'til now," she says, adding that Clooney was "the person who valued my feminine side the most" and "also one of the best people I have met from a charitable point of view ... he has been a special for me, and very important, just as a father would be."
She also makes it clear that they never considered marriage or children.
"George and I never spoke of marriage nor of having kids," she says. "I don't put limits to the possibility of having them, but neither George nor I had ever envisaged having kids together. The end of the relationship was not caused by a marriage issue, but instead by our personal needs."
"George is a real gentleman even in his private life," she says. "I was very much respected both as a woman and partner."
