Portia de Rossi checked into rehab after Ellen fought with her: rumor


Portia de Rossi, allegedly, checked herself into a rehab facility after she and Ellen DeGeneres got into a fight.

According to In Touch Weekly, Portia de Rossi hadn’t been happy in her marriage for quite some time. As such, she has been drinking nonstop and isolating herself from DeGeneres. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm that these hearsays are correct as of this writing.

Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi allegedly had a confrontation

But an unnamed source claimed that DeGeneres confronted de Rossi and the latter lost it. The source also claimed that the Scandal star blamed her wife for her addiction because DeGeneres has been controlling her.

“She said she wasn’t in love with her anymore. Ellen was crushed and screamed at Portia to get lost. Portia entered the Passages Malibu rehab facility in early May for a 30-day treatment for drugs and alcohol. Ellen visited her every weekend to support her while she was there,” the source said.

Ellen DeGeneres allegedly controlling Portia de Rossi

The source also said that de Rossi has cut ties with her friends because DeGeneres dislikes them. There are also, allegedly, some instances wherein the Ally McBeal star felt like a prisoner in her own home.

“She went from sipping white wine occasionally to drinking at least a bottle or more a day and topping it off with a pill. It got to the point where she was out of it four nights a week. They’ve had vicious shouting matches — with both of them yelling cruel, soul-crushing put-downs that they both deeply regretted,” the source said.

Just days before de Rossi’s alleged trip to the rehab facility, she and DeGeneres were photographed vacationing in Europe. A source told the publication that the couple went on the trip to repair their marriage.

“It won’t be easy. Portia will always be battling her demons. But they love each other,” the source said.

Rumors debunked

However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. While it is true that de Rossi checked herself into rehab for her eating disorder and addiction, this happened before she married DeGeneres.

In her book, Unbearable Lightness de Rossi revealed that DeGeneres was one of the people that helped her get through her struggles. As such, it is unlikely for the comedian to have caused de Rossi’s rehab stint.

It is also untrue that Portia de Rossi and DeGeneres are having problems. The couple will celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary next month.
