Ellen DeGeneres has, allegedly, been testing Portia de Rossi’s patience for years.
Last year, the contract of Ellen DeGeneres was renewed for a few more years. And a source told OK! magazine that this is the worst-case scenario for Portia de Rossi. After all, the Scandal alum has, allegedly, been encouraging DeGeneres to quit The Ellen Show for years. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm that these hearsays are correct as of this writing.
“Portia hung around because Ellen swore she’d ease up on her workaholic days. Now, she’ll be doing those 12 to 14-hour days on a regular basis. It’s testing Portia’s limit to the max, and the feeling is she could well walk,” the unnamed source said, as per OK! magazine.
Ellen DeGeneres consulted with her wife and brother about her contract
DeGeneres revealed that before she renewed her contract, she consulted with de Rossi and her brother, Vance, first. The latter told him to keep going, while de Rossi said that she could other things.
“Portia gets mad when my brother tells me I can’t stop doing the show,” DeGeneres said.
Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi feud rumors
By the looks of it, this was the comedian’s statement that led the tabloid to create a dubious story about her and de Rossi. Since DeGeneres said that de Rossi gets mad, the tabloid claimed that the couple has been feuding about the funny woman’s work.
“Ellen says she simply couldn’t turn this opportunity down. It wasn’t so much the money. This was ostensibly about keeping her fans happy and completing what she started,” the source said.
Did Portia de Rossi move out of Ellen’s home?
Since the tabloid was suggesting that the couple was feuding, they also said that de Rossi decided to move out of the home she shares with her wife.
“The word is that Portia decided to move out and clear her head for a bit. Of course, she adores Ellen, but nobody could blame her for finding this situation difficult to process and incredibly frustrating. There’s a growing fear that Ellen’s pushing her wife’s buttons too hard – and that Portia won’t be able to tolerate it any longer,” the source said.
However, an entire year has passed and Ellen DeGeneres and de Rossi seem to be doing fine in their marriage. The Ally McBeal alum never left DeGeneres’ home. In fact, the couple will be celebrating their 12th wedding anniversary next month.
