Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have been in the headlines for weeks now following de Rossi's stint in rehab, and now rumors are flying around the web that the couple are headed to therapy in order to save their relationship.
The couple have reportedly been fighting quite a bit lately, and the situation wasn't helped when de Rossi had to seek help in rehab for alcohol abuse. She allegedly secretly filmed an argument with Ellen while she was under the influence and threatened to leak it online to expose her as controlling and manipulative, and allegedly believes Ellen had an affair while she was away.
“Ellen is domineering and Portia is passive. Ellen always calls the shots, and Portia never complains. She 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," a source said recently.
The couple have not publicly confronted the rumors; in fact, Ellen has denied that there is any problem, saying the couple never have fights.
"It's so ridiculous to me. There’s not one ounce of truth to any of it. I’m very happily married. In fact, the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more. That is all. It really is true. And we argue if we’d let a kangaroo carry us around in its pouch for a year. I would. She wouldn’t. She’ll change her mind. Who wouldn’t want to be in the pouch of a kangaroo for a year? Hopping around. And she’s like ‘no’ but anyway," Ellen said earlier this year.
