Ellen DeGeneres is “ready to call it quits with wife Portia de Rossi,” claims In Touch in a new story that sounds a lot like dozens of other tabloid stories wrongly predicting the end of the couple’s marriage over the years. Gossip Cop can bust the report.

A so-called “insider” tells the outlet, “Ellen’s been unhappy with Portia for a while and wants out.” Why hasn’t she pulled the plug? “Ellen hates to be alone,” says the In Touch source. “She’s never broken up with anyone unless she has someone waiting for her, and she’s not interested in anyone right now.”

The tabloid says de Rossi is more than ready to part ways. “She’ll be happy to get rid of Ellen… Ellen is a control freak. She likes to tell Portia who she can and cannot be friends with, and Ellen doesn’t like her to work.” According to In Touch, a split is “imminent.” The publication’s source says, “They’re both ready to move on. And it could still get really ugly.”

There’s nothing uglier than the “reporting” In Touch offers here. Gossip Cop has repeatedly busted the tabloid for spreading false stories about the couple, and that’s the case again here. An insider close to the situation tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “It’s b.s.”
