Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are, allegedly, heading for a $220 million divorce.
Four years ago, National Enquirer published a dubious story about the couple. The tabloid claimed that Ellen DeGeneres was devastated when she heard de Rossi said that she has a crush on her Scandal co-star, Matthew Del Negro. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm that these hearsays are correct as of this writing.
Portia de Rossi, Matthew Del Negro allegedly flirted years ago
But the source claimed that the de Rossi and Del Negro’s feelings are mutual. When de Rossi appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! host Jimmy Kimmel read a tweet from Del Negro.
“So relaxed and charming,” Del Negro wrote in reference to de Rossi.
The insider then claimed that this was Del Negro’s way of flirting with his co-star, and DeGeneres is enraged.
“This is the end. Portia and Ellen have been squabbling and drifting apart for some time. But for Portia to leave Ellen for a man is the culmination of Ellen’s worst fears!” the unnamed source said, as per National Enquirer.
Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi allegedly having marital problems
Back then, the source also said that things have been difficult for the couple. And their primary problem has to do with Ellen DeGeneres trying to control her wife.
“Ellen never wanted Portia to work as much as she does right now,” the source said.
The insider claimed that things got so rocky for the couple when de Rossi checked herself into rehab, allegedly, due to marital stress. The couple also, allegedly, got into an epic fight while on their way to the People’s Choice Awards in 2014.
Did Portia de Rossi confess that she will always love men?
In 2010, de Rossi, reportedly, made a confession that, allegedly, shocked DeGeneres. During her conversation with Oprah Winfrey, the Ally McBeal alum said that she had always really loved men and still do.
At that time, de Rossi and DeGeneres have already been married for two years.
“She thought she and Portia would live happily ever after, but now the love of her life is leaving her. Ellen feels like her whole world is crashing down on her,” the source said.
Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi still together
Four years passed and DeGeneres and de Rossi’s marriage is still going strong.
Tabloids are still preying on the couple’s relationship, but they have both taken everything in stride.
Ellen DeGeneres previously joked about all the rumors surrounding her marriage to de Rossi. And she told her audiences on the Ellen Show that if there’s something she needs to share, she will do it on the program.
