Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres’ marriage is in the news again this week, with new supposed details of what’s tearing them apart. According to In Touch Weekly, Ellen cheated on Portia with a mutual friend just before Portia entered rehab in May. Apparently Ellen’s infidelity drove Portia to drink, thus sending her to rehab. Of course there have been several rumors about Ellen cheating on Portia other times, but if this particular affair caused Portia’s relapse? Well that’s something new… sort of.
A source explained:
“[Portia thinks Ellen] had an affair with one of their mutual friends right before Portia’s rehab stint in May.”
Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres’ marriage has been a red hot topic of discussion on the internet. While Ellen has insisted that she and Portia are fine, stories surface every other day about a tumultuous marriage that is tearing at the seams. It is hard to imagine such turmoil between the jovial talk show host and the actress, but no one really knows what happens in the privacy of their home.
The source added:
“It’s going to take a lot for Portia to trust Ellen again. They kept up with the therapy after Portia got out of rehab, but they still have a long way to go.”
Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have been going to therapy, and that’s a good sign. Therapy doesn’t always mean that bad things are happening; in fact, many couples choose to go to therapy just to keep their marriage in top-notch shape.
According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, Portia’s self-esteem issues have a lot to do with what’s going on in her marriage. Many believe that Portia has pushed Ellen away, and Ellen cheated because she was tired of Portia’s constant misery. However, Ellen seems nothing but supportive of her wife, and the stories put forth by the media really don’t seem to make any sense at this point.
The reason these stories are continuing? Well, that’s two-fold. For starters, there really aren’t any reports out there saying that Ellen and Portia are doing great and that the rumors are bologna. Secondly, each day there are new rumors about Ellen and Portia that seem to tie into previous rumors, and so the ball just keeps on rolling.
According to an earlier report by The Inquisitr, those who know Ellen and Portia say that the two are determined to stay together and to make their marriage work. The two have a lot of love for one another, and fans hope that they can get through this — even if “this” simply refers to rumors and the media’s obsession with ripping them apart.
Are you tired of hearing about Ellen and Portia’s problems? Do you think the rumors are made up?
