Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are NOT headed for a split, despite a completely inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to In Touch, the couple’s marriage is on the verge of ending over a myriad of supposed issues. A so-called “source” tells the magazine these alleged problems include “never coming to an agreement over having children, concerns over Portia’s health in the wake of her eating disorder battle and Ellen’s controlling behavior.”

The outlet’s dubious insider further claims DeGeneres and de Rossi are “fighting daily,” and purports that the talk show host has become an “angry and difficult person.” The “source” continues, in oddly unnatural language, “Unless Ellen can change her negative mindset and sullen, paranoid ways, the once-happy Hollywood golden couple is headed toward a split within the next few months.”

Despite how many times Gossip Cop has debunked bogus divorce claims about the spouses, we still checked in with a source close to the couple, who exclusively assures us this latest breakup tale is simply “not true.” Unfortunately, In Touch has a long history of reporting nonexistent marital problems between the two.

Gossip Cop previously debunked the tabloid’s tall tale about DeGeneres and de Rossi having a “marriage anniversary from hell.” And shortly before that nonsense, we busted the magazine for falsely alleging DeGeneres and de Rossi were fighting over a baby. This latest report about the happy couple is equally inaccurate.
