George Clooney ex Stacy Keibler is dating a new man according to People and US Weekly. The entertainment news media organizations both reprinted new photo of the former pro wrestler on Sept. 30, 2013. According to the source, she has been seeing a man named Jared Probe, a tech entrepreneur. But is their new romance really that new?
People magazine reports, “Keibler, who split with Clooney in July after dating for two years, posted a photo on Instagram on Monday that showed her and her new beau enjoying a glass of wine together in Paris.” The photo shows a lovely young couple — both wearing sunglasses — smiling and sharing a glass of wine at what appears to be a quaint and romantic little restaurant located it the city of love.
The photo makes the couple look as if they know one another personally already. What’s more, they look as if they have known one another intimately for a very long time — something all the mainstream media outlets are beginning to confirm.
US Weekly reports Probe was not involved in the breakup directly, but sex (or lack there of) with gorgeous George may or may not have been the cause of Stacy being discontent with their relationship. They write,
Keibler and Clooney, 52, went their separate ways in July in a split that sources told Us were a long time coming…
“They hadn’t had sex in months,” a source told Us at the time…
“He’s been in Europe, and she’s in L.A., and they haven’t seen each other in a long time. Some girls would be okay with that and just be happy dating George, but not her.”
Their source then claimed that the blonde and the techie have known one another and remained close for more than a decade.
If the relationship with Clooney was a real one (and the two of them were in love), it seems unlikely she would be romancing a younger and hotter young man already — let alone publishing pictures of their new romance. Why? Because that could be construed as something hurtful, petty, and mean to do to him if they both ended the relationship at all heartbroken but were still on good terms as friends… and that would risk alienating her fans.
If, on the other hand, she and her new lover were interesting in getting both of them free publicity, letting the world know that she is actively dating him served two very clever private purposes as well. First, she let the paparazzi and entertainment news sources around the world help her make a silent jab at the silver fox (because her new boyfriend is clearly younger looking than him and has been around for quite a while). Second, she was able to show him that even without Clooney on her arm that she is able to at the very least look like a class act — one able to attract other handsome and wealthy men.
Furthermore, by self-publishing romance pictures on Instagram, Keibler may simply be trying to show George Clooney that she actually would have been the perfect figurehead bride for him to wed. After all, she always has managed to show her sunny smile at just the right moment in a way that convinces people she really is the perfect trophy wife who looks like the girl next door. That is something readily apparent in the new photo of she and her new (old) beau. To that end, Stacy Keibler dating Jared Probe may simply be some new ploy for Clooney’s former mistress to keep the attention of the actor.
But, considering the fact Probe and Keibler have reportedly been close friends for the past 15 years it may also be that she is not announcing to the world that she is in love with a new man. Rather, she may simply be confirming she has finally been able to come out of the proverbial closet (so to speak) with an old boyfriend. If Clooney already knew about the love affair and condoned it during their two year relationship, then chances are her coming out now and admitting they are seeing one another is actually something he’d be happy about and willing to congratulate her for now that their time together is finally up.
