Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossie are, allegedly, heading for a $500 million divorce. And their split might happen before their 12th wedding anniversary.
According to In Touch Weekly, Ellen DeGeneres and de Rossi have been fighting nonstop. And a lot of people think that their marriage won’t survive for a few more months, let alone years. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm that these hearsays are correct as of this writing.
Portia de Rossi will allegedly receive a generous sum post-divorce
But an unnamed source claimed that de Rossi could get a generous sum of money if she and DeGeneres would call it quits. Since the couple, reportedly, doesn’t have a prenup, de Rossi won’t be at the losing end if their marriage is dissolved.
“Ellen’s estimated to be worth $500 million, and since they’ve been married for more than ten years in California and to my knowledge don’t have a prenup, Portia will be entitled to be a bigger piece of the pie than if they had split a few years ago. It could be one way for Portia to get even with Ellen for putting her through hell for so long,” the source said.
Ellen DeGeneres struggling amid criticisms?
The insider also said that Ellen DeGeneres has a lot of things on her plate right now.
“First, there was the employee backlash after her show’s staff was forced to take pay cuts as Ellen started taping at home [due to the coronavirus pandemic]. Then people started lashing out at her on social media, sharing stories about how ‘mean’ she is behind the scenes. Now, she’s stressing out about the possibility of her show being axed. It’s not looking good – ratings are down,” the source said.
And to make things worse, de Rossi, allegedly, wants out of her marriage to DeGeneres.
Is Portia de Rossi scared of Ellen DeGeneres’ temper?
The Scandal star is, allegedly, scared of her wife especially when she loses her temper and starts freaking out.
“It’s like a scene from The Exorcist – and Portia’s been on the receiving end. They’ve had huge, nasty fights that would last for days at a time. Portia finally snapped. She can’t take all the years, yelling, and childish tantrums anymore. She’s done trying to paper over the cracks,” the source said.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. DeGeneres and de Rossi are not heading for a $500 million divorce.
The couple will be celebrating their 12th wedding anniversary on August 16. And just like the previous years, Ellen DeGeneres will most likely pay tribute to her wife on social media.
