Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are not “on the rocks,” and their marriage is not “crumbling,” despite a new OK! report claiming they’re living in separate homes. Gossip Cop can bust the story.

According to the outlet’s insider, “They are living out their problems apart, which means nothing is getting sorted out.” The OK! source adds, “Ellen’s more concerned with her image than the reality of what’s happening at home. It’s her controlling the relationship once again, which has landed her in trouble with Portia before.”

The magazine goes on to rehash the old, discredited sources for the couple’s alleged problems, including DeGeneres trying to control de Rossi’s career, their disagreements about whether to start a family, and de Rossi’s alleged frustration with living in DeGeneres’ shadow. “Portia really wants their marriage to work, but she just doesn’t know how to get through to Ellen anymore,” says the OK! insider.

OK! has been so wrong, so often, about DeGeneres and de Rossi, it’s laughable. Last June, the magazine claimed Sofia Vergara had come between them. That came a month after the same publication insisted the couple was adopting a baby. Those stories were 100 percent false, and so is this one. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop, “This story is totally, completely untrue.”
