Portia de Rossi and wife Ellen DeGeneres are reportedly fighting once again. The couple was said to be en route to a fundraiser for Saving SPOT! when the alleged spat took place.
“Ellen and Portia were supposed to be at the event at 5 p.m., but at 6:30 p.m., the media was still waiting for their arrival,” a source for the New York Post’s Page Six claims. Reporters were told they were on their way, until the head of the charity informed everyone at the end of the event that they weren’t going to make it due to ‘logistics.’”
Both Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi deny these claims. The couple made a joint statement to Page Six in their effort to dispel the rumor.
“We were happy to lend our names as honorary chairs and the organization was always aware that we would be unable to attend. This is the first time we have seen our images attached to the invite. It was not approved and it is misleading,” the statement reads.

Marty Singer is one of Ellen’s attorneys. He had the following to say about the fight allegations.
“The story is a complete lie. My client told the organizer they never agreed nor planned to attend the event. There was no fight that caused them not to attend.”
Fox News reports that the charity, Saving SPOT!, has yet to respond for a request for comments.
RadarOnline, however, is reporting that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s current relationship is ‘as tumultuous as ever.’
In fact, a source tells them that Portia often shows up on the set where The Ellen DeGeneres Show is filmed, solely to check up on her wife.
“It is kind of creepy,” the source says. “Portia never used to come to see her at work.”
“Ellen tells us that it helps having her there because she ‘at least she doesn’t have to worry about her being home alone,’” the source adds of the Scandal star. “I have to admit, however, it seems like Portia is being slightly controlling by her unplanned visits.”
What do you suppose the real scoop is behind Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres and their marriage? Are these ‘sources’ simply weighing in with speculations on something about which they have no real proof? Or are things going wrong once again for Portia and Ellen?
