Ellen DeGeneres has responded to rumors that she and Portia de Rossi are splitting a handful of times.
In 2013, the Ellen Show host addressed the speculations on her talk show. Ellen DeGeneres revealed that she saw a tabloid with her and de Rossi’s photo on the cover.
The misleading headline suggested that the couple’s marriage was crumbling. But when DeGeneres flipped through the pages of the magazine, she saw that the article had been ripped out. DeGeneres told her audience that she will never know what’s tearing her marriage apart.

A year later, DeGeneres spoke candidly about her marriage to de Rossi. She told People that she falls in love with her wife every day.
“The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time. I really do. She surprises me all the time. It’s what anyone experiences when you find that person that gets you, wants to take care of you, wants the best for you. We’re really lucky because we know how rare it is,” she said.
Two years later, the rumors about Ellen DeGeneres and de Rossi divorcing became rife yet again. The comedian told People in 2016 that she cannot imagine herself not being married to the Scandal star.
“I have my best friend, the person I want to spend time with more than anybody else in the world. Our priorities are each other too. If we had kids, then I’m sure they would be, but we are. And that’s important,” she said.
DeGeneres directly denied that she’s divorcing de Rossi. She said that there’s not an ounce of truth in the dubious stories. After all, she’s happily married.
Portia de Rossi enduring wife’s diva attitude?
Four years after DeGeneres’ interview, there are speculations that she’s giving de Rossi a hard time amid the criticisms that she’s receiving. Since March, more and more people have come forward to expose DeGeneres.
A source said that DeGeneres has the upper hand in her marriage. And since DeGeneres is the one that gave de Rossi a luxurious life, the latter, allegedly, just sucks it all up.
The Ally McBeal star is also allegedly indebted to Ellen DeGeneres for saving her amid her battle against bulimia. However, one should take these questionable claims with a grain of salt.
