George Clooney

George Clooney is once again making headlines with Elisabetta Canalis.

No, the actor hasn't dumped Stacy Keibler and returned to his ex.

Rather, he and his onetime love are two of the more than 200 people who could potentially be called as witnesses in former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's sex trial.

While both Clooney and Canalis had been placed on a list of potential witnesses by Berlusconi's defense team back in March, it was only today that a Milan court accepted them and deemed their possible testimony as relevant.

The trial stems from allegations that Berlusconi paid for sex with an underage prostitute in 2010. It seems the then-17-year-old at the center of the controversy has claimed to have seen Clooney and Canalis last year at a party at Berlusconi's place, which just happens to be near the star's home on Lake Como.

However, the Oscar winner has insisted he interacted with Berlusconi on one single occasion, and it was not at a party.

"It seems odd since I've only met Berlusconi once and that was in an attempt to get aid into Darfur," Clooney said via his rep in March when his name first came up.

Time will tell if Clooney will actually be called to testify.
