Portia de Rossi Filmed Fights With Ellen DeGeneres?

Portia de Rossi reportedly filmed some of the worst blow ups she and wife Ellen DeGeneres have had. The former Ally McBeal star, who went off to rehab in the middle of whatever problems the two were having, is said to have secretly filmed some of their fights in an effort to prove how controlling Ellen really is.

“Portia secretly taped some of their arguments. She was drunk,” a source explained. “Then she threatened to expose Ellen as controlling and manipulating.”

Ellen DeGeneres supposedly lost it when she discovered the recordings–feeling very duped at the Arrested Development actress’s scheme.

Despite the alleged recordings and the recent rumors about a divorce on the horizon, Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres are said to be working hard on their marriage. The two were spotted not long ago shopping for furniture together.

“Portia going to rehab was the first step in saving their marriage,” the source said. “They want their marriage to work more than anything.”

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi will have been married six years in August. These most recent issues aren’t the first time the couple has suffered.

“Ellen is domineering and Portia is passive. Ellen always calls the shots, and Portia never complains,” another source said. “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.”

Do you think Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres will salvage their marriage or are these recordings Portia supposedly made representative of the beginning of the end?

    Who is the source? Things are only proven if they are not hidden behind the title of source. If this is what we call journalism, it’s sad. These words are exactly out of intouch mag. Why believe it when every website is more concerned about being left out to report something they can not produce a a Purcell for. I will believe it when one of them say it. Stop reporting this. They should have the privacy if tho story is true.

      So you are saying that just because a writer doesn’t reveal her sources by name in print, you will discredit the article? You realize that this story is being reported in numerous publications with the same basic facts?
      Keep drinking the kool-aid dear.

      • Fred

        The “numerous publications” are all getting this story from the same source, dear! Duh! Most internet news stories are rewrites of internet news stories. That’s news to you? kool-aid indeed…

  • Liz Edgar

    I’m not saying this is B.S., and I’m not saying that it isn’t. I just have a REALLY hard time seeing Ellen acting any way other than nurturing and loving. However, I don’t personally know either one of them, but I hope this isn’t true. If it is, I also hope they can work it out because I think they make a great couple!

      That’s called “public relations.” There is a billion dollar industry devoted to getting people to think something completely different than reality about a person, business, or legislation.

      You have no idea what that person is like once the cameras are turned off.

    • whatever

      I understand EXACTLY what you stated: that you are not saying that it is true or not and that you don’t know them personally but it is hard for YOU to imagine it.. Very well said. I feel the same way.

    Kimberly Ripley, as in “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” posted this article and does not have to cite if it is fiction or non-fiction and hide behind a pay check as a writher of everything ans anything, this is what social media has come to?

    If they do divorce, I hope Portia De-Rossi gets every $$$ from Ellen, as a straight female I’ve been in controlling relationships with a Col. in the Marine Corp. where he is based down in Camp Pendleton, he would o so far as put pennies on my car tires
    To see if I left the house we shared down in La Jolla.
    Thankfully I’m no longer with him & back @ my parents home in Hidden Hills, CA.

      Then go get a job, get your own place to live and take care of yourself. If you don’t like being “controlled,” become independent.
      Nothing worse than a lazy chick who wants everyone to give her things and then acts surprised there is a price for that lifestyle.

    • Mil.wife

      IF you were married to a USMC Col. then he had to be in his 40’s at the youngest. So you are back home with Mommie and you are age appropriate?
      OR, as your photo & name indicate there may have been another motive to your relationship. Hope you saved all those pennies.

  • grandmadove

    Ellen is the husband not the wife. Look at the way she dresses.

    • whatever

      What does that have to do with it? Are you trying to say that men should be be controlling?

    Anne Heche must be rubbing her feelers together….

    In my high school yrs. and early 20’s I had a lot of gay friends and one thing I know for sure with women there is a difference between a lesbian and a dyke. Portia is a lesbian and Ellen is a dyke. I am sure the Ellen you see on T.V. everyday is not the Ellen Portia lives with everyday. Most of the dykes I know are controlling to their mates because they are always trying to proof and act out the person that is in their head and not what you see. In their mind they feel masculine and equal to men and that is the way they carry themselves in a relationship. That’s why you never see to dykes together usually a dyke and a lesbian, two dykes would be like two gay men.

    • ldean

      I’m painting with a broad brush… but, I would like to hear from a lesbian on this topic. My neighbors were lesbian and they told me violence is common in lesbian relationships due to this lesbian vs. dyke dilemma – the amount of “controlling” by one and put on the other and this need to appear/be macho. Can someone knowledgeable comment?

      • Incognito

        Well l’m a lesbian but both my partner and I are very feminine. We don’t stand out like the butch/fem couples do. I do know other lesbians who are butch/fem couples. I really wouldn’t say it’s typical behavior to be violent. I believe that they are like any other couple in that respect. I know some very calm and easy going butch women who would never be violent.
        I think that gays, like homosexuals, are all very different and you can’t assume they’re violent based upon their appearance.

        • ldean

          Thank you for responding. :)

      I’m so confused……

    • chattycathy

      They’re call lipstick lesbians and butch lesbians. Don’t make it so complicated. Ellen is butch and Portia is a lipstick variety lesbian

    • lionswimmer

      Correction: They’re both lesbian. One is butch and one is femme, or, put another way, one is a top and one is a bottom. And yes, this is very common in lesbian relationships. I’ve seen time and time again where the butch one acts remote, rigid, avoidant, noncommunicative, controlling, raging; while the femme acts co-dependent, accommodating, clingy, overly needing to talk about everything, etc.

    • Incognito

      Queen Tina,
      The reason you usually see a dyke and a lesbian is because they stand out. When two feminine women are partners, you don’t notice. My partner and I are both very feminine.

  • QueenTina

    I believe there is some truth to the story for the simple fact Ellen was on her show pitifully trying to deny the stories rumor- rating the tabloids. She said “Portia and I never fight really, really the only thing we even disagree on is what to wear.” Does she really expect us to believe that, “don’t insult our intelligence Ellen.” Whenever you see pic’s of them at events Portia always looks as if she has had one too many, probably because of those hideous skimpy outfits Ellen makes her wear.

  • Kara

    They will last longer than Kim and Kanye!

  • Dannie

    Were they shopping for carpet? Would imagine that both carpets have been worn down considerably from all that licking.

  • pat

    If this is true, I am not surprised as this is how these types of relationships usually end up. yes, these types of relationships usually have an insecure person in the midst and Ellen does seem to be the type. Such a beautiful girl to end up in a controlling situation, inwhich she already had problems before Ellen.

  • disqus_5LSX4Jk8il

    This isn’t the first time I’ve heard about troubles between the two, so it’s got to have some truth to it. If Ellen is indeed the way she is portrayed and I believe anyone can be anyway behind closed doors, then the the two have a problem and if counseling doesn’t happen and Ellen doesn’t change her ways, I’m afraid it’s doomsville for both. Maybe Portia is better off without someone like this.

    Passive personalities ALWAYS have a difficult time with people who are decisive. They feel controlled and manipulated when, in fact, they just need to learn how to be more assertive. If one or both parties in a relationship has an addiction, that just fuels the fire. Individual and joint counseling (and maybe rehab) are imperative if a relationship like this one is going to survive.
