Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi NOT Getting “$220 Million Divorce”

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes




Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are NOT headed for a “$220 million divorce,” despite a completely FALSE cover story from Star.

The magazine, which DeGeneres recently mocked on her show for claiming she and her wife were splitting, again says the pair’s relationship is “hanging by a thread.”

According to the tabloid, the talk show host is a secret “control-freak” who “bullies” De Rossi, and the actress supposedly “can’t take it anymore.”

A so-called “source” alleges that DeGeneres “refuses to let Portia go out with her friends, and she regulates who is allowed in their house!”

The bogus insider adds, “She won’t even let Portia take most of the acting jobs she’s offered, because she wants to be the sole breadwinner, and she’s so jealous, she’s fearful that Portia might fall for another woman — or even a man — on the set!”

Star goes on to claim that DeGeneres is “one of the meanest people” her “Ellen Show” staff has even encountered, and even alleges that the TV personality may have a drinking problem.

But there is not one ounce of truth to this story. The mag reports that the couple is breaking up on an almost monthly basis, and yet DeGeneres and De Rossi remain happily together. In any case, Gossip Cop checked in with a close DeGeneres friend, who tells us exclusively that the tabloid’s latest tale is “all false.”
