Ellen DeGeneres is, allegedly, making perfectionist demands on workers who are helping her remodel her properties.
According to Globe, Ellen DeGeneres has an OCD-style fixation on remodeling. And this isn’t sitting well with the workers that she employed.
Ellen DeGeneres allegedly obsessed with house-flipping
An unnamed source told the tabloid that DeGeneres is obsessed with flipping houses, but her contractors are crying over her perfectionist tendencies.
“Ellen’s got this OCD-style fixation on everything that has to do with remodeling, from the roof to foundation. She bosses at builders, electricians, and plumbers alike, demanding that they bring her vision to life. Ellen demands the finest craftsmanship and materials, and anything less gets redone. She can be brutal telling people what she thinks of their work,” the unnamed source said, as per Globe.
Ellen DeGeneres allegedly difficult to work with
The insider said that it’s been difficult to work with DeGeneres since her first renovation ten years ago.
“Back then, she didn’t know what she was doing and that was annoying enough to the professionals working for her. Now, she acts like she knows everything – and more than they do,” the source said.
The comedian is allegedly paranoid
According to the source, Portia de Rossi’s wife worries about getting ripped off by contractors. As such, she tends to get very much involved in every aspect of the renovation.
“She carries a measuring tape and laser leveler to make sure everything’s even and precise. If she orders a specific kind of insulation or tile – that’s why they’d better give her or they’ll have to rip it out at their own expense,” the source said.
And since DeGeneres is, allegedly, paying for jobs using her own money, she is able to earn huge sums of money from her ventures.
For instance, DeGeneres, reportedly, purchased a compound in Los Angeles for $30 million. Years later, she put the property on the market for $49 million.
“Ellen’s bought and flipped houses at millions of dollars in profit, so she knows what she’s doing. But while Ellen’s gotten millions richer… some say it’s all gone to her head,” the source said.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. As of late, only tabloids have been accusing DeGeneres of being hard to work within the house-flipping department.
There hasn’t also been any confirmation that Ellen DeGeneres is a perfectionist and that she has an OCD-style fixation on flipping homes. But it is common knowledge that real estate is something that she enjoys.
