After breaking up with Stacy Keibler, George Clooney has been the subject of plenty of new-girlfriend reports. The hunky actor finally spoke up about his dating status and said the stories are "all made up."

In a very short span of time, Clooney has supposedly been romantic with Katie Holmes, Croatian model Monika Jakisic and a lawyer named Amal Alamuddin.

"Three different stories in three weeks. I should be an athlete," Clooney joked to People magazine. "But, no of course, it's all made up."

Not only did Clooney admit the stories were all false, but his rep has also spoken out on the Gravity actor's behalf with a general statement to the media.

"George wants this Monika crap to stop. He wants Katie to get a break, and he wants Amal to be able to prosecute cases without being hassled because she had one dinner with George and four others... I even asked George if these [rumors] were true and he said he never comments on his private life, but in the interest of stopping the harassment of all three of these women, he felt he should."

Another source has reiterated the same information, saying that Clooney has not been dating any of these three women he's been linked to. However, this insider did reveal something very interesting about the 52-year-old actor, not related to dating at all.

"[George is not] the new boyfriend of Amal," he said, but added that he's working with her "on a [surveillance] satellite program over Syria."

Apparently, Clooney had been working on a special Sudan spying mission with his Satellite Sentinel Project. His efforts help "keep an eye on some of the atrocities that are going on there and because we want not just accountability but we want to make it more and more difficult to act without ramifications," he said when the project was launched in 2010.

So, is Clooney single because he's been working on secret military missions?
