Ellen DeGeneres Portia de Rossi Fight Split

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi did not have an explosive fight over food after a party for the talk show host’s 20-year anniversary of coming out, despite a made-up report. Gossip Cop can debunk this claim. We’re told it’s “false.”

“Ellen and Portia’s Ugly Anniversary Blow Up,” reads a headline from this week’s National Enquirer. The magazine claims the couple were locked in an explosive public bust-up outside a Beverly Hills restaurant after marking DeGeneres’ “coming-out milestone.” A seemingly made-up source, who allegedly witnessed the fight, is then quoted as saying, “Portia kept trying to talk to Ellen, but Ellen wouldn’t even look at her as she screeched out of the parking lot.”

The outlet’s alleged insider goes on to claim the argument started over de Rossi only ordering soup during dinner. “Even though Portia is through the worst of her eating disorder, Ellen watches every bite she takes,” further purports the publication’s supposed source, adding that DeGeneres started “lecturing” her wife about eating something more “substantial.” “By the end of the meal, they were both seething,” concludes the tipster.

Let’s get this straight: The tabloid’s source not only saw their alleged argument in the parking lot, but also knew what was discussed over dinner? Pardon Gossip Cop for being a tad suspicious of the outlet’s eyewitness. Anyway, we looked into the magazine’s story, and it’s not true. An actual DeGeneres confidante assures us the entire report is “false.” The talk show host did not get into a fight with de Rossi over food. The Enquirer cooked up this fabricated dish.

This is hardly the first time the tabloid has been wrong about DeGeneres and de Rossi. Gossip Cop previously corrected the magazine when it falsely alleged DeGeneres was dumped by de Rossi for a man. And before that tall tale, we busted the publication for wrongly claiming DeGeneres was in a $220 million divorce with Rossi. Unlike the hot soup de Rossi allegedly ordered, the outlet’s reporting is, at best, lukewarm.
