In response to the latest issue of Us Weekly, which claims Canalis sent the Oscar winner a series of angry text messages after she learned he was dating Stacey Keibler, Clooney has released a statement that reads:

The story "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."

Don't hold your breath for a retraction, George.
