Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are headed for a divorce, according to multiple media outlets. A new twist in the saga that is their marriage involves a tell-all book, penned by celebrity journalist Randy Jernigan. According to Radar Online, Jernigan has written a book called The Life and Career of Ellen DeGeneres in which he exposes “sordid secrets” about Ellen and her relationship with Portia. Jernigan offers a very “realistic” look into the lives of Ellen and Portia, based on interviews he conducted with 13 of Ellen’s friends and work associates.
“Many fans don’t know that Ellen and Portia have had a very tumultuous romance since the very beginning.”
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi aren’t completely slammed in the book, however. In fact, Jernigan doesn’t really say that the two are headed for a divorce or that things between them are out of control. Instead, he takes a different approach. It sounds like he does a bit of defending as well, writing that Ellen and Portia truly love and care for one another despite their struggles.
“They both care for each other very much, but neither is good at the whole give and take aspect of a relationship.”
Rumors of an Ellen DeGeneres divorce simply won’t quit. Every few days, there is a new story on the internet about what’s going on between the talk show host and her actress wife, and none of the stories have been positive or uplifting. The most recent report involved information about Portia secretly recording drunken fights that she had with Ellen. According to The Inquisitr, Portia had (or has?) plans to expose her wife and her “abusive” nature.
A source said:
“Portia secretly taped some of their arguments. She was drunk. Then she threatened to expose Ellen as controlling and manipulating.”
Portia de Rossi has reportedly felt like a “prisoner in her own home,” according to The International Business Times. She has reportedly struggled living in Ellen’s shadow, and now all of these issues are being leaked online for all to read. It is definitely hard to believe that someone as jovial and lovely as Ellen DeGeneres would have such a tough marriage, but no one really knows what happens behind closed doors.
