Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are NOT constantly fighting, nor is their marriage in trouble, despite a fabricated tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “nonsense.”
DeGeneres recently dislocated her finger when she tripped and fell after a dinner party, and she humorously recounted the accident on her talk show. “Well, I had two glasses of wine and fell into a door,” she said, adding that her wife had to drive her to the emergency room. DeGeneres continued joking about the incident during her monologue, but according to OK!, she was making light of a serious situation.
A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “There’s no way Ellen had just two glasses of wine that night. Portia was embarrassed and felt like she was the only one taking the whole thing seriously.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Portia keeps reminding Ellen that her tolerance isn’t what it was when she was younger, but Ellen doesn’t care… This has been a near-constant battle for them lately.”
The tabloid’s questionable source goes on to purport that de Rossi has been skipping meals as a result of the alleged martial strife, and it’s caused even more tension in the relationship. “Ellen watches her like a hawk at dinner and is always urging her to have ‘one more bite’ of this or that,” says the outlet’s “insider,” who adds, “Saving their marriage will be the real emergency.”
Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a reliable source close to the talk show host, who exclusively assures us the publication’s entire account of events is complete “nonsense.” Of course, we’ve repeatedly called out OK! for wrongly reporting that the happy spouses were on the verge of a split, so this latest claim comes as no surprise.
Gossip Cop previously busted the tabloid for alleging DeGeneres and de Rossi were having marriage problems over selling their house. We also debunked the magazine’s phony story about DeGeneres and de Rossi living apart. This latest report is equally bogus.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
