A couple of days ago, photos emerged of George Clooney coming out of a London club followed by Monika Jakisic, a woman he used to deal with. Click here for a refresher. IN TOUCH Weekly had to take it one step further, reporting that George and Monika were holding hands inside, looking “smitten” with each other, which would mean that he and Stacy Keibler must not be together anymore or that he was stepping out on her.

Now George is denying the story. His rep released a statement from George to Hollyscoop:

“The story is made up. I wasn't holding anybody's hand. Stop trying to sell magazines by creating scandal that isn't there.”

You know what’s interesting about that though? What’s interesting is that he felt the need to deny it at all. Did he deny it just to make sure we know that, as usual, IN TOUCH is full of sh-t? If he was single, there’d be no need to deny a story about him getting horny with a woman on a night out, right? So ... did he deny it to imply he’s not single?
