Ellen DeGeneres And Portia De Rossi Sell Home, Reignite Divorce Rumors

Power couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi recently placed their Montecito villa for up for sale for $45 million. The listing came as a surprise to many since the woman behind The Ellen DeGeneres Show once said that they will live in that home forever.

The talk show host and her wife are known for buying, beautifying, and selling luxurious properties, according to the Wall Street Journal. However, the lovely property in California was thought to be the one property that the couple would not put a price on. Ellen DeGeneres said in her 2015 interior-design book Home that the Montecito home is the one she hopes to live in forever.

Unfortunately, Ellen DeGeneres’ initial hopes for the Montecito villa will not come true since the couple is now selling the property. The sudden decision to sell their home set once again ignited divorce rumors that have lingered around the couple in the past.

The tipster told a publication that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are following their marriage councilor’s advice, which is to start dating again. As a result, the two are going out on dates in hopes of saving their marriage.

Despite the numerous reports about their relationship, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi slammed these rumors in an official statement. According to the couple, the rumors are false, citing the fact that they have been seen multiple times together at various events.

Its overall design simply shouts Italian, possibly because it was designed and built in the 1930s by architect Wallace Frost. Apparently, the man behind this beautiful home had a love for 17th-century Tuscany, which resulted in this stylish home. Over the years, modern elements were added to the beautiful Montecito villa, including the modern finishes courtesy of the previous owner, John Saladino.

To top things off, the party who purchases Ellen DeGeneres’ mansion will have Oprah Winfrey, Rob Lowe, and Al Gore as their neighbors. Aside from her Montecito villa, Ellen also has one of her Beverly Hills condominiums on the market with a price tag of $7 million.
