Elisabetta Canalis, former girlfriend of actor George Clooney, is dating MTV's "Jackass" star, Steve-O, Us Weekly reported.

For the past few weeks, gossip sites and magazines have been trying to confirm whether or not the odd couple was really a couple, but their recent public displays have clarified it for everyone.

The pair was seen together in Los Angeles on Monday running errands, having lunch and making out in between time, Us Weekly reported, with the photographs to prove it. The Italian actress, 33, and her uncertified stuntman boyfriend, 37, were also caught by TMZ cameras over the weekend going to a hair salon.

When TMZ initially spotted the pair getting into Steve-O's car on Saturday after a trip to the Trust Hair Salon in West Hollywood, they were asked if they were "just friends," but neither responded.

Elisabetta, who recently appeared on season 13 of "Dancing with the Stars," dated actor George Clooney for 18 months, but the pair split up in June 2011. She then briefly dated "True Blood" actor Mehcad Brooks in the fall of 2011.

Fans were surprised at Elisabetta choice for a rebounds. Steve-O, also a "Dancing with the Stars" alum, has had a long public battle with drug addiction.

In March 2008, Steve-O's friend and fellow "Jackass" star placed him in the hospital after they received a disturbing email from him suggesting he was suicidal. The funnyman later said that he once believed his drug-induced behavior and bipolarity was "a good thing," but has changed his views and gone clean.

"Initially, my thinking was, 'I'm Steve O! I'm in the position where I can do a lot of good in the world. If I turn my life around I can lead by example,'" Steve-O, born Stephen Glover, told PopEater. "I had a crazy idea that I was going to be doing the rest of the world a big favor if I got clean and sober. That's what gave me the willingness to go to rehab."

Clooney, 50, has since been dating former wrestler Stacey Keibler, and the pair have appeared at the Golden Globe and SAG awards together.
