"It happened recently, but things didn't end on bad terms," an insider tells omg!. "Work and busy schedules kept them apart."
People magazine, which first reported the news, claimed the couple separated over Keibler's desire to have children.
"Stacy called it quits," a source close to the couple told the magazine. "She wants to have children and a family someday. She knows where George stands on that."
However, sources tell omg! that is inaccurate.
"That's not what happened," second insider tells omg!. "Kids, a family, George's stance? That had nothing to do with it."
In fact, Keibler, 33, has even said numerous times before that she "lives in the moment," rather than thinking ahead about marriage and kids.
"That is not on my radar at all," Keibler told E! Online last fall. "I'm definitely the girl who doesn't talk about that kind of stuff. I'm not really interested in thinking about marriage or kids at all ... I'm more of a guy that way."
When reached for comment, a rep for the 52-year-old actor replied, "George has never commented on his personal life and neither will I."
Omg! has reached out to a rep for Keibler as well but has not yet received a response.
Speculation about a breakup reached a crescendo during 4th of July weekend when Clooney was photographed without Keibler at his vacation home in Lake Como, Italy. Meanwhile, she posted a couple of photos from Malibu on her Instagram over the holiday, including one of herself with another guy (although it's unclear who he is).

The last time the couple actually was seen together was on March 21 in Berlin, when Keibler was photographed visiting Clooney on the set of his upcoming film "The Monuments Men."

The most telltale sign of trouble in recent months took place over Memorial Day weekend, when Clooney was photographed leaving a London club at 3 a.m., around the same time a former flame of his named Monika Jakisic was also exiting.
Clooney's rep issued a statement from the actor at the time saying, "The story is made up. I wasn't holding anybody's hand. Stop trying to sell magazines by creating scandal that isn't there." The strong denial spoke volumes, but, interestingly, contained no mention of Keibler.
That same weekend, Keibler was just a hop, skip, and a jump away, also in Europe. The former professional wrestler had a "zip slip" wardrobe malfunction in Monte Carloat the Formula One F1 Grand Prix event.
Keibler's been busy recently promoting her new game show, "Supermarket Superstar," which premieres July 22 on Lifetime, while Clooney has been continuing to shoot "The Monuments Men" in Europe, which he wrote, and is directing and starring in.
