This week, the rumor mill has been busily cranking out chatter that two high-profile couples have hit a pothole on the bumpy road to love. First up, we have George Clooney and Stacy Keibler, who last month brushed off reports that their year-plus romance had hit the skids.
But now the New York Daily News has resurrected the rumblings, claiming their surprisingly enduring hookup (in Clooney time, anyway) is "almost kaput." The evidence, such as it is: During a recent appearance at a cooking event, the leggy blonde "was acting really nervous and refused to talk about George."
Not a red flag by itself, considering Keibler has presumably learned to stick to the party line when it comes to her far more famous squeeze.
Still, another spy alleges she was "tearful" at different function last week and repeatedly checked her phone for a message from the A-list commitment dodger.
"They're barely talking," an insider contends to the paper. "She is worried that he may break up with her any day now. ... George is being really distant and pulling away from her. She wakes up every morning and doesn't know what's going to happen."
Clooney, 51, who spent much of the summer hanging with Keibler, 32, at his villa in Lake Como, Italy, is currently in small-town Oklahoma shooting "August: Osage County" with Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.
The pair's reps have yet to comment.
