While it may seem that Australian-American actress Portia de Rossi and comedian Ellen DeGeneres have the perfect relationship, they apparently have the same problems as any other couple.
It is reported that de Rossi is having jealousy issues over her wife for talking to other women; more specifically, actress Gillian Anderson. de Rossi caught DeGeneres texting Anderson, and is afraid that there may be more to their relationship than just a simple friendship.
“Ellen and Gillian have been close friends for years and set tongues wagging when they were caught sharing a steamy lip lock in 2000,” a source revealed.
“Ellen has always had a major crush on Gillian, but she’s sworn up and down to Portia nothing happened between them. But Portia doesn’t believe her,” the source continued. “Ellen and Gillian adore each other. Portia’s not too happy about it and wants them to stop communicating. She’s afraid Ellen will be tempted to stray, even though the funnygal insists that would never happen.”
However, according to what DeGeneres told PEOPLE magazine back in March, she is completely happy with de Rossi and falls more in love with her all the time. “The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time. I really do. She surprises me all the time,” DeGeneres said. “It’s what anyone experiences when you find that person that gets you, wants to take care of you, wants the best for you. We’re really lucky because we know how rare it is.”
DeGeneres and de Rossi met when de Rossi was playing the part of Nelle Porter on Ally McBeal, before she had come out about her sexual orientation. The couple started dating not long after de Rossi’s split from her girlfriend singer Francesca Gregorini. In 2005, de Rossi publically came out, and then in 2008 she and DeGeneres were married.
