Ellen DeGeneres has, allegedly, been planning to relocate to Australia with Portia de Rossi.
Several tabloids published a story on Ellen DeGeneres and de Rossi’s alleged move. However, it still hasn’t happened.
Gossip Cop revisited all the dubious claims made by the tabloids about DeGeneres and de Rossi this week.
Ellen DeGeneres didn’t live up to her promise to Portia de Rossi
Last year, Star claimed that DeGeneres and de Rossi’s marriage was at stake if the former wouldn’t quit Ellen Show.
A source claimed that DeGeneres promised her wife that she would no longer renew her contract for the show. But she had a change of heart at the last minute. This, allegedly, left de Rossi feeling devastated.
However, DeGeneres and de Rossi’s didn’t end back then despite the tabloid’s claims that it would. This proves that the tabloid was incorrect when it comes to the couple’s relationship.
The rumor-debunking site also reached out to a friend of DeGeneres and they were told that the rumors were fake. They were also told that de Rossi never pressured DeGeneres into moving to Australia.
Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi marriage on the rocks
In April, Woman’s Day claimed that DeGeneres and de Rossi’s marriage was already at breaking point. Back then, a source said that the couple was having problems due to DeGeneres’ mean girl behavior.
“Ellen’s always been, shall we say… determined. But the past few years she’s crossed the line and pushed her staff way too hard. They’re terrified of her,” the source said.
The insider also claimed that de Rossi was usually at the receiving end of Ellen DeGeneres’s bad behavior.
“She bosses her around like nobody’s business and Portia puts up with it because she feels like Ellen gave her this luxurious existence in mansions and all the pet horses she could ever have dreamed of,” the source said.
Ellen allegedly responsible for Portia’s sobriety
DeGeneres, allegedly, nursed de Rossi back to life. And she was also, allegedly, the one that helped the Ally McBeal star with her sobriety. As such, de Rossi, allegedly, feels indebted to her wife.
“For a while, Portia enjoyed feeling so loved. But in recent years, she’s been strong enough to become her own person. They’d have some rip-roaring fights when Portia has stepped out of line in Ellen’s view. Portia usually goes running off to her brother in tears, but she always returns to Ellen,” the source said.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloids with a grain of salt. Ellen DeGeneres is not mean towards de Rossi. And the couple isn’t also having problems in their marriage.
