Ellen DeGeneres does NOT have cancer, despite a completely bogus and disgusting cover story from the National Enquirer. The magazine claims the talk show host is “terrified that her life will be cut short by deadly breast cancer,” alleging that during a recent breast self-exam, DeGeneres “detected a suspicious lump.”

A so-called “insider” tells the tabloid, “Ellen went into an emotional tailspin recently after she detected a lump in one of her breasts.” The supposed “source” adds, “She dissolved in tears and sobbed to Portia [de Rossi], ‘I’m so scared.'” “In the end, the lump turned out to be benign, but Ellen is at her wits’ end, fearing it’s only a matter of time before cancer takes her out,” alleges the “insider.”

No, DeGeneres does not fear “it’s only a matter of time.” None of this ever happened. It was seemingly entirely fabricated by the tabloid’s supposed source or the magazine itself.

Irrespective of how the publication came to its erroneous information, it’s still 100 percent incorrect. Much like previous other stories from the magazine, Gossip Cop can similarly bust this report. A source close to the situation exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the tabloid’s latest tale is complete “nonsense,” and that DeGeneres is totally fine.
