Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are, allegedly, relocating to Australia to save their marriage.
According to New Idea, the tumultuous events from the past 12 months are taking a toll on Ellen DeGeneres and de Rossi’s marriage.
So, after the comedian announced that she will be quitting Ellen Show, she and her wife decided that it’s time to focus on their relationship.
“Ellen’s been a hellcat since the big backlash started last year. She’s been behaving recklessly too and sleeping barely three hours a night. Portia’s been tearing her hair out with worry, but all her attempts to fix things have only made things worse,” the source said.
Ellen DeGeneres struggled for an entire year
Other than the previous allegations that DeGeneres is a bully, the funny woman also endured criticisms about her Ellen Show staff. In fact, things have become so bad that DeGeneres was even forced to apologize publicly to those they have hurt.
“It’s no secret Ellen and Portia have gone through hell and they almost split a couple of times during lockdown. But they’re both beginning to realize that a fresh new start in Australia could be exactly what they need. Neither of them wants a divorce but something has to give,” the source said.

Since the couple will, allegedly, be relocating to Australia for good, the tabloid claimed that Ellen DeGeneres and de Rossi have been looking for a house to purchase.
“Ellen loves warmer weather, so they could also be considering a second home in Byron Bay or somewhere further up the NSW coast. Whatever makes Ellen happy is the key to all of this,” the source said.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. While it is true that DeGeneres already quit Ellen Show, there’s no indication that she and de Rossi will be moving to Australia.
After all, there’s no reason for them to. Ellen DeGeneres and de Rossi’s careers are in the United States. And they also have several properties in the country.
