Ellen DeGeneres‘ marriage to Portia de Rossi is very shaky at the moment, and is not being helped by new reports suggesting Ellen cheated.
One of the first rumors started in February, when Ellen was spotted having lunch in Hollywood with a mystery brunette.
Portia de Rossi went to rehab not long after Ellen’s mystery date. According to InTouch Weekly, Portia de Rossi quietly entered the Passages Malibu rehab facility in May for a 30-day program to address her drinking. It was the second time Portia entered rehab, with the first stint coming in 2000 when an eating disorder caused her to drop to 82 pounds.
A source told InTouch Weekly that this time the rehab stint was sparked by a fight between Portia and Ellen.
“They got into an ugly fight. Portia hadn’t been happy for a while and was drinking and isolating (herself), and Ellen confronted her,” the source said. “Portia lost it and blamed Ellen for driving her to drink because of her controlling ways and said she wasn’t in love with her anymore. Ellen was crushed and screamed at Portia to get out.”
The marital strife reportedly caused Portia de Rossi to turn to drinking, and reports now say that Ellen’s infidelity may have been the cause.
While Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have denied all divorce rumors to date, if true the latest report may be too much to overcome.
