Ellen DeGeneres and Charlize Theron never got into a fight over Portia de Rossi, despite a report from a year ago claiming the two were headed for a "showdown" over the talk show hosts's wife. Gossip Cop debunk the story when it emerged this time last year. Time has proven it false.

On September 25, 2017, RadarOnline claimed DeGeneres was worried about her wife working with Theron on the fifth season of "Arrested Development" because she found the actress to be a "bad influence." The blog went on to say that the TV personality planned to show up on set to "keep an eye on things during any of Charlize and Portia's scenes together," and it could potentially lead to an altercation.

At the time the article was published last year, it wasn't clear if Theron was actually involved in the Netflix series. The actress guest-starred on the third season of "Arrested Development" back in 2005, but there was no indication she was returning. As time has shown, Theron didn't appear at all on the fifth season of the series, which started streaming this past May.

The fact that Theron wasn't involved in this past season of "Arrested Development" completely discredits the blog's report from 12 months ago, which a mutual pal of ours and DeGeneres had laughed off. It's now clear that the entire story was predicated on a false narrative. However, there have been even more circumstances over the past year that have invalidated the website's premise.

This past April, Theron appeared on DeGeneres' talk show to promote her movie Tully. The talk show host even told the actress during the interview that she and de Rossi had watched the movie together. Simply put, DeGeneres wouldn't have invited the actress on her TV show if she truly disliked her. It's also unlikely the TV host would watch Theron's movie with de Rossi if she wanted to keep her wife away from the actress.

RadarOnline's bogus article from 12 months ago is yet another example of how the passage of time often disproves tabloid claims. Another example is when the blog's sister publication, Star, alleged last November that DeGeneres and de Rossi were getting a "$400 million divorce." The blog's other sister outlet, the National Enquirer, falsely claimed in May that DeGeneres and de Rossi were having a "marriage crisis." The happy spouses are still very much together, and Theron certainly hasn't come between them.
