Ellen DeGeneres is NOT getting divorced from Portia de Rossi, despite a new tabloid cover story about a “divorce bombshell.” Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the report.

It’s the new issue of In Touch that touts “divorce bombshell” on its cover, where it’s further said, “Nonstop battles over money, Portia’s career and the decision to have a baby. Now Ellen’s $345 million fortune is at stake.” A headline inside the edition also reads, “Ellen & Portia: Inside The $345 Million Divorce.” The magazine writes, “Just months after celebrating their eighth anniversary Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s marriage crumbles.”

“It’s never been this bad,” contends the tabloid, which quotes a so-called “insider” as saying the couple has been “arguing more than ever,” with “heated debates about Ellen’s controlling behavior and her anger issues.” Continues the magazine’s supposed source, “They fight over Ellen’s drinking, her lavish spending — mostly on real estate — plus her busy work schedule and how she doesn’t want Portia to work.”

DeGeneres is accused of outright lying “publicly” about the state of her marriage. But, “the truth is, it’s over,” asserts the publication. “After years of ups and downs, an ability to agree on key issues as well as what a second source calls Portia’s growing unhappiness with her role as a ‘trophy wife,’ sources close to the couple say their eight-year marriage is in tatters.”

The “insider” alleges DeGeneres and de Rossi “always seem to be on the verge of a breakup over one crisis or another, but now a divorce is imminent. A good chunk of Ellen’s fortune is at stake. This could be one of Hollywood’s most expensive, ugliest and dirtiest divorces ever.”

In actuality, it’s In Touch that’s playing dirty. DeGeneres and de Rossi are not on the brink of divorce. They weren’t when the tabloid previously claimed it in October, in 2015, and in years past. In fact, the talk show host just said last month, “I know that I’m not going anywhere. She’s not going anywhere.”

And while the magazine wants readers to believe that’s a lie, Gossip Cop is far more inclined to take DeGeneres’ word than give credence to the publication’s repeatedly-discredited allegations. We also trust our impeccable contact, who has never steered us wrong when it comes to these tabloid tales about the couple. And this new “divorce bombshell” one, we’re exclusively told, is “ridiculous.”
