George Clooney's girlfriend LISA SNOWDON has blasted British newspaper reports the actor's beloved pet pig has died.

Earlier this year (05), the SUNDAY PEOPLE claimed the OCEAN'S TWELVE star was in mourning following the tragic demise of his pot-bellied pal, but sexy TV presenter Snowdon insists MAX is still very much alive.

She says, "There was a rumour that he'd died, but it's not true. There was a lot of worldwide concern when people thought he'd died."

And British model Snowdon never has to wrestle Max for Clooney's affection - because the snorting animal has welcomed her into his master's household.

She adds, "He's a great pet and he's not jealous of me."
