Ellen DeGeneres is not moving to Australia to save her marriage to Portia de Rossi, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “ridiculous.”

According to the often discredited National Enquirer, DeGeneres is looking for a home in Australia in a “last-ditch” effort to save her “tattered marriage” to de Rossi, who hails from Down Under. The publication claims the couple’s union is in jeopardy after they had “another knock-down, drag-out spat over having children.” A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Ellen vowed to Portia” they would have a baby, and “nothing has happened.”

After de Rossi got “fed up” with her wife, the magazine contends DeGeneres was able to calm down the actress by assuring her they would travel to Australia where they could “scout homes suitable for starting a family.” The outlet’s seemingly made-up or ill-informed “insider” further alleges, “Ellen knows how much Portia hates Hollywood and the idea of buying a home in Australia went a long way to smoothing over the trouble .” If this scenario about DeGeneres moving to Australia for de Rossi sounds familiar, it’s because a year and a half ago Gossip Cop exclusively busted the same claim when the Enquirer‘s sister publication OK! falsely reported the couple was moving Down Under.

Of course, it should be noted that in the past few months alone, Gossip Cop exposed the tabloid for wrongly reporting on its cover that DeGeneres and de Rossi were getting a divorce, and that the Aussie actress had left the talk-show host “for a man.” And only two months ago, Gossip Cop busted the magazine for making up a story about DeGeneres and de Rossi agreeing to have a baby. As we have accurately reported for a long time, neither of the women is interested in having kids.

Still, despite the publication’s abysmal track record and inaccuracies in its current article, we once again checked in with a trusted DeGeneres source, and we’re exclusively assured the latest story is “idiotic and ridiculous.” The two are not fighting over having children and are not moving to Australia.
