Ellen DeGeneres did NOT get into a heated argument with Portia de Rossi at her producer Andy Lassner’s Christmas party, despite a new report in Star. According to the tabloid’s “sources,” DeGeneres allegedly “went crazy” when she caught her wife “sneaking away to light up a cigarette.”

According to one Star source, “Ellen went into the kitchen to get something and saw Portia smoking. She tried to hide it, but that just set Ellen off.” The magazine claims the two “began bickering so loudly that the entire party heard what was going on.”

“Portia screamed at Ellen that she wasn’t going to be told what to do,” says the alleged eyewitness. “It got so loud that people ran into the kitchen to make sure everything was OK… It was definitely awkward.” Star says the fight basically killed Lassner’s party, which “never regained its momentum.”

How dramatic! And… how fake! A source who was at party tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the story is “untrue.” Not surprising, given the tabloid’s track record with DeGeneres and de Rossi, including a story three months ago falsely claiming they were expecting a baby. The outlet has repeatedly and wrongly said DeGeneres and de Rossi are on the rocks. It isn’t DeGeneres’ frustration that’s showing. It’s Star’s.
