Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi are now in therapy, sources say. The two have been the target of divorce rumors, and an insider says that De Rossi thinks DeGeneres had an affair with their mutual friend right before she entered rehab in May.
According to reports, De Rossi checked into rehab to receive treatment for her alcohol and drug use. They had a fight because of DeGeneres’ alleged cheating.
“Portia hadn’t been happy for a while and was drinking and isolating [herself], and Ellen confronted her,” the insider said. De Rossi said that DeGeneres was the one who drove her to drink, saying that she does not love her anymore. The statement affected DeGeneres and she “screamed at Portia to get out.” The source also said that DeGeneres has a domineering personality, while De Rossi is passive and never complains.
For the past few weeks, there were reports that the couple will soon be divorcing. Amidst the cheating and divorce rumors, it seems that the couple is doing their best to save their relationship through therapy.

“It’s going to take a lot for Portia to trust Ellen again. They kept up with the therapy after Portia got out of rehab, but they still have a long way to go,” said the source. They have been trying hard to spend more time together and mend their relationship. A month ago, the two were spotted on a yacht together.
The source said that DeGeneres loves De Rossi “more than anything in the world” and she wants to ensure that she is physically and emotionally healthy. She is supporting her wife’s recovery and has given up alcohol. DeGeneres is glad that her partner is out of rehab and she is enjoying their time together.
