Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi Headed For Divorce? Couple Tries To Maintain Normalcy Despite RumorsBy: Meaghan Ellis - July 21, 2014
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s marriage has been a topic of discussion for weeks now.
The famed comedian and talk show host has been accused of cheating on the Australian actress and model with a mutual friend. Ellen’s alleged infidelity is reportedly the reason for her alcoholism.
Back in May, Portia entered rehab for her drinking problems, which sent the media into a frenzy. Shorty after, reports began circulating about a fight between the two that had been caught on tape.
“They got into an ugly fight,” a source close to the couple revealed to In Touch Weekly. “Portia hadn’t been happy for a while and was drinking and isolating [herself], and Ellen confronted her.”
“Portia lost it and blamed Ellen for driving her to drink because of her controlling ways and said she wasn’t in love with her anymore. Ellen was crushed and screamed at Portia to get out,” the source revealed.
Divorce rumors have also been reported by several media outlets for months, but the couple is determined not to validate any of the claims. Celeb Dirty Laundry reported the couple has sought therapy in an effort fix the problems in their marriage.
“It’s going to take a lot for Portia to trust Ellen again,” the source said. “They kept up with the therapy after Portia got out of rehab, but they still have a long way to go. They are on their way to repairing their marriage. It won’t be easy. Portia will always be battling these demons. But they love each other,” the source explained.
Ellen DeGeneres or Portia de Rossi have yet to address any of the latest divorce rumors. However, back in February, Ellen denied that the two were having any marital problems.
