Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi did not bail on an animal rights fundraiser on Sunday nor did they have a fight about going to the event, despite a published report that has been picked up widely. “It’s a complete fabrication, a lie,” the couple’s attorney tells Gossip Cop.
The wholly inaccurate story first appeared in the New York Post under the headline, “Ellen, Portia cancel appearance after ‘epic’ fight.” The tabloid goes on to claim the two were en route to the Saving SPOT! charity event in Santa Monica when got into a fight and “turned around without attending the event, even though they were listed and pictured on the invitation as hosts.”
Again, none of it is true.
