Portia de Rossi will be celebrating her 12th wedding anniversary with Ellen DeGeneres on Sunday, August 16.
And though the couple seemingly has a united front, In Touch Weekly isn’t convinced that everything’s well between Portia de Rossi and DeGeneres.
Does Portia de Rossi have the upper hand in her marriage?
According to the tabloid, de Rossi finally has the upper hand in her marriage. And she knows that she can leave the comedian anytime amid all the recent criticisms.
Since the two have been together for over a decade, de Rossi knows the kind of person DeGeneres is. Despite the comedian’s negative side, the Scandal star still chose to defend her publicly.
“Portia had no choice but to speak up and show her support. Portia has seen Ellen at her worst. Better than anyone, she understands Ellen’s controlling behavior and the cold way she treats people because she’s been on the receiving end herself,” the source said.
Portia’s support for Ellen DeGeneres just for show?
The Ally McBeal star will, allegedly, continue supporting DeGeneres publicly. However, things could eventually change because de Rossi doesn’t want to go down with the ship.
Even though the couple is still together, de Rossi doesn’t, allegedly, like how DeGeneres is treating her staff. After all, she’s always polite and nice towards other people.
However, the tabloid suddenly changed its take on Portia de Rossi and DeGeneres’ relationship. They said that the former has also seen her wife’s good side, that’s why she married her.
“The drama has put a lot of strain on their marriage, and they were already at the breaking point. But Portia doesn’t want to abandon Ellen when she’s at rock bottom. Once that’s settled, she might finally muster the courage to leave Ellen,” the source said.
Ellen DeGeneres allegedly worried that Portia de Rossi would betray her
DeGeneres is also, allegedly, worried about what her wife can say about her if they push through with their divorce. After all, all sorts of dirty laundry come out in the divorce proceedings.
And since de Rossi knows everything about DeGeneres, it would be a nightmare for the comedian if her wife will betray her. De Rossi could seemingly betray her wife by giving a tell-all.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. De Rossi has no intention to betray DeGeneres.
If Portia de Rossi wanted to betray her wife, she would have already done so a long time ago.
