Portia de Rossi’s friends worried about her relapsing due to Ellen DeGeneres rumor debunked


The criticisms that Ellen DeGeneres recently faced are, allegedly, causing the friends of Portia de Rossi to worry.

Last month, National Enquirer claimed that de Rossi could suffer a relapse because of the stress she and Ellen DeGeneres face.

Portia de Rossi on a downward spiral because of Ellen DeGeneres

A source told the tabloid that other than the criticisms that DeGeneres received, de Rossi is also stressed over the fact that only a few people came to her wife’s defense.

“For Portia, this is a recipe for disaster,” the source said.

A physician also spoke with the tabloid to say that whatever is going on in the couple’s life could tremendously affect de Rossi.

“The pandemic and Ellen’s negative media exposure are high-intensity psychological stressors, a bad concoction for Portia’s sobriety. A collapse can be just around the corner,” the doctor said.

According to the tabloid’s source, de Rossi has also been sober for six years. But this could change because of what’s been going on.

Rumors debunked

Gossip Cop recently debunked the tabloid’s claims by saying that they are incorrect. They pointed out that even though there have been claims of a toxic work environment on Ellen Show, there were no direct complaints about the comedian.

The rumor-debunking site also busted the tabloid for preying on de Rossi’s eating disorder and stay in a facility. They shouldn’t have been done this, especially without any basis.

“This was just a shameful, underhanded way for the tabloid to discuss de Rossi’s past in a scandalous fashion,” they said.

Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi issues

National Enquirer has been known for concocting dubious claims about DeGeneres and de Rossi for years. In June, the tabloid claimed that DeGeneres is trying to give herself a makeover. And she’s, allegedly, thinking about flipping homes instead of hosting Ellen Show.

“Ellen’s been approached by TV producers about doing a new Flip or Flop or Fixer Upper­­-type show with her wife, Portia de Rossi. Given the flak Ellen’s received recently – and to reinforce her giving nature – she’s going to be flipping the homes of people who have suffered terrible tragedies and flipping them into their dream homes.

The tabloid also claimed that DeGeneres’ career is on a downward spiral. And her competition, Kelly Clarkson, is already outdoing her. A source told the tabloid that de Rossi is the only one standing by her wife’s side. But it’s only a matter of time before she leaves the funny woman too.

However, none of these claims about Ellen DeGeneres and de Rossi are true.
