Ellen DeGeneres health problems, neck injury forces her to quit ‘Ellen Show’: Rumor


Ellen DeGeneres, allegedly, planned on quitting Ellen Show because of her health problems.

Last year, National Enquirer published a dubious claim about Ellen DeGeneres, saying that her neck injury is making it impossible for her to work.

A source claimed that DeGeneres has also been telling her friends that she could no longer handle the grind because of her mysterious and paralyzing neck injury.

During an episode of Ellen Show, the comedian arrived on set with crutches. She told the audience that she has some good news and bad news to share with them.

DeGeneres then said that the good news is that she doesn’t need to use crutches. But the bad news is, she injured her neck.

“(My chiropractor) said my feet don’t point in the right direction, one leg is longer than the other, my shoulders are humped, and my hips are uneven. Basically, he said nothing about me is straight,” she joked.

DeGeneres then detailed what happened the day before that might have contributed to her injury.

“I went to turn my head and then my neck disagreed with that situation. It just seized up and then I felt like there was a rod going down my back, and I thought, ‘Well, if I just ignore it, it would go away,’ like a toothache or global warming,” she said.

Rumors debunked

Ellen DeGeneres showing up on Ellen Show and discussing her neck injury is proof that she had no plans to quit the program because of what happened to her.

An entire year has also passed and DeGeneres is still hosting the talk show. This means that the tabloid’s claims are incorrect.

Gossip Cop also debunked the tabloid’s claims by saying that they have been targeting DeGeneres for years. After reports of a toxic work environment on Ellen Show came to light, several tabloids started concocting stories about the funny woman.

They have been claiming that DeGeneres is planning on quitting the show because she couldn’t take the criticisms. They also claimed that the comedian will be fired from the show because of her behavior.

However, none of these claims about Ellen DeGeneres are true. The comedian is still hosting Ellen Show. And her contract was recently renewed.
