Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi reportedly attended a couple’s counseling to mend their relationship after “fighting more than ever.”
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are among the celebrity couples who face non-stop gossips. One tabloid claimed three years ago that they always fought and decided to undergo counseling to keep their marriage.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi attended counseling
Life & Style magazine published a report in 2017 claiming that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi had tried their best to save their marriage. An insider revealed that the couple tried hard to keep their relationship back on track that they agreed to do counseling.
“Ellen has been in counseling, both solo and with Portia,” the source said.
“Part of their therapy is to go on more date nights. That’s why they’ve been seen out and about more together lately.”
At the time, DeGeneres and de Rossi were spotted holding hands while shopping along Melrose Avenue and at a pre-Oscars party.
“It’s all about spending quality time together, but still giving each other space during the workday,” the source added.
The source alleged that there was a time when DeGeneres and de Rossi had been fighting that they thought the couple would separate. The studio crew allegedly overheard their arguments.
“Ellen and Portia had been fighting more than ever. Portia was frustrated because she was spending a lot of time on Ellen’s talk show set or sitting at home, waiting for Ellen to spend time with her,” the so-called source continued.
“Ellen hates that. She never wants people at work to know about her personal problems. It was a huge wake-up call for her.”
Ellen said she and Portia don’t fight
However, Ellen DeGeneres said in one of her interviews that she and her wife, Portia de Rossi, don’t fight. In contrast to reports claiming that they were constantly feuding, Portia and Ellen are always living in peace.
“We really don’t almost break up,” DeGeneres told Howard Stern in 2015.
DeGeneres also denied the rumors that they were fighting and splitting.
“We don’t fight. We are madly in love,” the host said.
Besides, The Ellen DeGeneres Show host revealed that they think alike.
“We think the same things. We are so similar and yet we’re different enough,” she added.
Portia never left Ellen
Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres spent the lockdown together. However, aside from the pandemic, Ellen received intense backlash for being mean.
Despite the non-stop criticism, Portia never left her wife’s side. An insider said that Ellen was so grateful to Portia for staying.
