You tell 'em, George Clooney.

The 52-year-old actor was not amused by a report claiming he was holding hands with a former flame during a London weekend away from girlfriend Stacy Keibler. And on Wednesday, he set the record straight.

"The story is made up. I wasn't holding anybody's hand," he said in a statement. "Stop trying to sell magazines by creating scandal that isn't there."

And while Clooney isn't holding hands with any mystery model across the pond, he is hard at work in Europe filming The Monuments Men alongside pal Matt Damon.

In March, Stacy, 33, headed to Berlin for a date night with her man.

She also hit up Cannes Film Festival earlier this month, and from the looks of her Twitter she had a ball.
