Portia De Rossi Secretly Taped Drunken Fights With Ellen DeGeneres To Expose Her

Ellen DeGeneres Reportedly Cheated While Portia De Rossi Was In Rehab

Portia De Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have featured in the news headlines to a considerable degree recently with rumors of drunken fights, and the distinct possibility of divorce.

The latest reports to emerge suggest that De Rossi enraged DeGeneres by secretly filming drunken rows the couple had with the intention of making them public if and when appropriate.

In Touch magazine reported that a source told them Portia recorded the arguments and told Ellen that she would expose her abusive nature to the public if she continued to treat her badly.

The source shared: “Portia secretly taped some of their arguments. She was drunk. Then she threatened to expose Ellen as controlling and manipulating.”

According to the source, this just made Ellen Degeneres very angry and she flew into a rage when she realized she was being recorded. She then allegedly checked Portia’s email ‘sent’ box to ensure she hadn’t shared the damning video clips with anyone else.

These latest reports come after a string of other claims regarding the period Portia De Rossi spent in a rehab facility in May, supposedly in an attempt to get healthy and save her marriage.

A source close to Hollywood’s most talked about couple previously told In Touch that it’s clear who wears the pants in the De Rossi/DeGeneres household: “Ellen is domineering and Portia is passive. Ellen always calls the shots, and Portia never complains.”

In addition to that little gem of inside information, the source also revealed what life is like for Portia De Rossi, behind closed doors:

“She felt like a prisoner in her own home. She went from sipping white wine occasionally to drinking at least a bottle or more a day and topping it off with a pill. It got to the point where she was out of it four nights a week. They’ve had vicious shouting matches — with both of them yelling cruel, soul-crushing put-downs that they both deeply regretted.”

It is lucky for both Portia De Rossi and Ellen Degeneres that, so far, Portia never shared any of those alleged video clips with anyone; the media would have simply had a field day with that kind of material.

What will happen in the tumultuous marriage between the two celebs is anyone’s guess. The big questions remains: Will divorce prove to be the only option for them?

    This story is terribly written. It is full of grammatical errors and spelling mistakes (for example "to" instead of "two")

  2. Karen Silverstein Waters

    Let them have their issues in private please. It is not necessary to share other peoples' problems in the media.

    You can see Ellen is a man. If you date a man you will get the behavior of a man..Date a woman if you love women…How can you hate men then date a woman who is the perfect image of a man???

    "Don't see "to" for "two", but the last sentence "Is divorce really is on the cards for them?" is a grammatical train wreck…just like it appears the Degeneres/Rossi "historical" union of lesbians is also. Lesbians want the victory of marriage?? Then they deserve the agony of divorce.

  7. Dee Mikulys

    It is none of my business what's on these tapes (even if they exist). I'm even mad at myself that I read the article. I wish that someone would do an all out expose on the writer. Now that I'd read.

  8. Leslie A. McCready

    I think it's low down to record somebody without their knowledge and then essentially black mail them with it. Maybe Portia should start a club with Mel Gibson's ex.

  9. Chris Delani

    Hopefully she recorded Ellen eating some hair pie. I think Portia is sexy and I'm sure she has an amazing looking beaver? Shaved? Landing strip? Furry? I'd love to see!

  10. Danny Stilletto

    So Portia was secretly filming drunken rows the couple had with the intention of making them public if and when appropriate.
    For one thing it's never appropriate to secretly tape your supposed loved one and for another it's actually quite manipulative to do so.
    Looks as if Portia is the head case in this relationship. Ellen should just run and not look back.

    I agree that this is a private matter. WHY is it so important for the media to dig up dirt and then blow it out of proportion? Why trash the people who entertain us? Why make their lives miserable by watching them constantly and exposing every move they make? Let these two women work this out; they're like any couple who eventually run into problems. I can't imagine being constantly bombarded by photographers… never any privacy or peace. There is no respect for anyone anymore. Not the president, none of our celebrities. How about putting an end to this type of "news" and start writing about GOOD things that people do? Nothing but good things to read about… wouldn't that be a welcome change?

  12. Paul Verbitsky

    I thought that article yesterday about the guy raised by two Moms was proof that all gay homes are better than the heterosexual ones. Hmm? This is quite vexing.

    don't know what the real story is and really don't care…keep your business to yourself. if she did record tho–and does not have permission to show them…well then that's something ED can take care of legally.

    Has ANYBODY ever claimed that same-sex marriages would be stronger than heterosexual marriages? No. Equally strong, just as good, just as troubled, just as bad. Gay people want equality, not superiority. Take off your asshat, Paul. Seriously now. It's time. You're at least 12 or 13 years old now.

    I completely agree. If a relationship does not work – Walk away. Why do you have to destroy the person you once swore you loved?

  29. Marie Shanahan

    Wish people would just leave them alone. There is much bigger news to cover. With no insult to either of these souls, the media should be more professional and keep celebrity gossip relegated to entertainment sections. This isn't to say that they should be mean to celebrities who are suffering. This seems to be the larger, "sport" here.

  68. Cora Mason Atkinson

    Ellen turns them out, drives them craxzy and then cut them loose , just like she did Anne.

  69. Lois Oliver

    I understand it from Portia's point of view. She is the passive one with Ellen being the dominate one. Much like with a domineering man who has control, Portia needs something to regain some power of her own. We do what we have to do to survive.

  70. Cora Mason Atkinson

    And I am guessing your single, and have never been in a relationship.

  71. Micheale Smith

    I believe Portia taping their arguments ruins any trust in their relationship. If my husband did that to me, I would never be able to trust him again. If you do not have trust in a relationship you might as well call it quits, because it will never work out.

    there is no perfect relationship – hetero or otherwise – there is a front stage and a back stage, a front story and a back story – and we have to consider that the media and certain people love to hear the dirty little secrets of those we have put on pedestals. Ellen should not be expected to be anything other than anyone else, and I don't expect her to be any more perfect than the next person. We all have our faults and baggage. I am a lesbian, and I love women, but my partner and I are no different than anyone, we have money problems, work stress, respond to stress, drink alcohol, argue, slam doors, and then we work it out. My hetero marriage of 22 years was a nightmare of abuse and neglect for me. At the very least, I can now say life is much better however far from perfect. But we try and we do love each other :)

How about this. I have read in numerous headlines that the author of this piece of trash has been having sexual intercourse with his Chow Chow dog over a long period of time now and there are rumors that the two will soon be announcing their engagement!!!! I got that from a "very" reliable source too so it MUST be true!!! ;)

    oh yes Rossi should expose her. Because I always knew she is a control freak, she has all the money and the fame and I could see more and more when they took pictures how Rossi looked and how Ellen hid their problems with her friendly smile. You know both are older now. So they start dealing wih age….and Rossi stayed home like a housewife and didn't make anything, nor a career , while Ellen was out there . Rossi in my opinion should leave and expose the situation….I usually don't encourage that, but in this case I do.
