Is everything old new again for George Clooney? Just days after ex-girlfriend Stacy Keibler went public with her new beau, the Oscar winner has been spending time with Croatian model Monika Jakisic, with whom he's occasionally (and stealthily) dallied for nine or so years, reports Us Weekly.
On Sept. 25, Clooney, 52, supposedly had a "sleepover" with the London-based brunette, 33, at his Los Angeles mansion.
"They spent hours talking, and have an incredible connection," a source enthuses to the mag.
The two were last linked in May, when they were snapped separately exiting a London club after an apparent night of dancing and PDA -- coziness the A-lister adamantly denied.
Still, tattles the spy, "He's been calling and texting her ever since."
At the time of their ostensible club flirtiness, George's two-year romance with Stacy had seemingly hit the skids, and he was rumored to be warming up to Eva Longoria, although not much ended up happening on that front.
As for Keibler, she's rebounded with tech exec Jared Pobre, and recently posted an Instagram pic of their wine-fueled date at a Paris café.
On Wednesday night, Clooney joined Sandra Bullock at the New York premiere of "Gravity," which is generating an avalanche of Oscar buzz. Will he follow tradition by debuting someone new on his arm in time for awards season? Will Jakisic make the cut? Stay tuned.
