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?
