This alleged cheating took place back in May, right before Portia de Rossi allegedly entered rehab. Sources claim this affair led to a major fight between the longtime lovers. Still, the two are supposedly doing everything they can to save their relationship, including going to couples therapy.
“It’s going to take a lot for Portia to trust Ellen again,” the source said. “They kept up with the therapy after Portia got out of rehab, but they still have a long way to go.”
This is not the first time Ellen DeGeneres has been the subject of cheating rumors. Others reports also claim the host had an affair while Portia de Rossi was in rehab, though these have also not been confirmed.
And this alleged cheating is not the only rumored source of drama between Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres. The actress reportedly feels her wife is too controlling and even supposedly tried to record DeGeneres to expose this behavior. DeGeneres allegedly destroyed de Rossi’s phone to prevent the video from getting out. This tension reportedly led to a major argument that led to de Rossi’s supposed rehab stint at Passages.
“They got into an ugly fight,” a source close to the couple said. “Portia hadn’t been happy for a while and was drinking and isolating [herself], and Ellen confronted her. 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.”
But despite all these cheating and fighting reports, it does sound like Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are doing all they can to stay together. This reportedly includes a renewal of their marriage vows next month to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
“They’ve had their ups and downs,” an insider said of Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres. “Portia has been very outspoken about previous issues, like her eating disorder, and she’s good at seeking help when she needs to. They’ve worked out difficulties in the past, and no doubt they’re trying to work out any problems right now.”
It’s also a good sign for this relationship that neither Ellen DeGeneres nor Portia de Rossi has called out the other publicly. In fact, DeGeneres has insisted that she and her wife are just as in love as ever.
“The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time,” Ellen DeGeneres said earlier this year. “I really do. She surprises me all the time. It’s what anyone experiences when you find that person that gets you, wants to take care of you, wants the best for you. We’re really lucky because we know how rare it is.”
This certainly does not sound like a woman on the brink of divorce. So despite all of these cheating and rehab reports, we think Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi will find a way to settle their differences.
