Scoop: George Clooney buys his girlfriend a ring

Is George Clooney finally getting serious about a girlfriend? The notorious ladies’ man has famously proclaimed he’ll never wed again — but things appear to be moving in that direction with Italian gal pal Elisabetta Canalis. He’s moved her into his California bachelor pad — and given her a Cartier diamond, a pal of the actor tells In Touch magazine.

Though the bling’s not an engagement ring, it is a symbol of the “Ocean’s Eleven” star’s affection for the Italian TV presenter. Other such symbols are said to include an Hermès bag and “countless” designer shoes. 

“Every day is like Christmas at George’s house for Elisabetta,” the friend tells the tabloid. “He’s even looking at a Maserati. He’s had a great life for a long time, but she seems to make him very happy.”

Sheesh! Isn’t it enough that she gets to date George Clooney? Now she gets a diamond and a Maserati too?

Dump summit?

Did Brad Pitt have a secret rendezvous with Jennifer Aniston — to discuss dumping Angelina Jolie? If the European magazine Grazia is to be believed, the former spouses met up at an NYC hotel after Brad reached out to confess he’s fed up with his current relationship.

A source told the magazine that the long-ago golden couple keep in touch via phone, and that when Brad brought up his Angie problems to Jen on Sept. 25, “she arrived at his hotel suite a matter of hours after they had spoken.” (The humanitarian actor was on a jaunt to the Big Apple, where he had participated in a conference the previous day.)

During an hourlong tete-a-tete, “Brad was unloading his emotional baggage on Jen, which isn’t exactly fair considering their history,” the source said.

But the “Love Happens” star evidently wasn’t having it: “She was quick to tell him she wanted no part in his breakup with Angelina,” said the source. Apparently, the actress pulled no punches in telling her ex how selfish he was being, and instructing him to take care of his own problems.

Brad flew back to France to rejoin Angelina and their six kids the following day. But if the report is to be believed, it’s “all but over” between him and the brunette bombshell.

This story sounds six kinds of ridiculous to us. However, we continue to suspect that well into the next century, tabloids will be printing stories about the ghosts of Brad and Jen secretly meeting up for a sizzling posthumous rendezvous.

Oh, L’Amour

Things are definitely heating up between Katy Perry and Russell Brand. The new couple have vacationed in Thailand and hooked up in London, and now they’re gallivanting around Paris together. Wednesday, they turned heads by sitting together in the front row of the John Galliano show, with Katy in a pink gown and her British beau sporting his usual rocker chic. (And we mean literally turned heads — even Prince, seated farther down the row, craned his neck to check them out.)

“They arrived at John Galliano hand-in-hand,” another show-goer told People magazine. “They seem very much like the real thing.”

The “I Kissed a Girl” singer and the brash comedian also strolled through the cemetery that houses Jim Morrison’s tombstone. That’s … er … romantic?

Russell has even declared, “I think I’m in love,” reports Britain’s Mail — a huge development for a guy with a freely admitted rep as an avid bedpost-notcher. Of course, it remains to be seen whether this recent romance will last, or whether he’ll return to his womanizing ways.

C’mon, Russell — if George Clooney can embrace commitment, so can you!
