We’ve been reporting all year long about the “cheating scandals” and “love affairs” that have been going on between Ellen and Portia. Note that these were all tabloid claims and Ellen strongly denied the rumors.
But it became questionable when Degeneres would feel the need to constantly deny the report. You’d think that someone who knows they didn’t do anything wrong wouldn’t end up putting so much time in letting people know that the tabs are reporting false reports.
Anyway, the National Enquirer writes that the couple are now trying to save the romance by visiting a counselor, knowing that this is literally their last shot to save their marriage.
“Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi are secretly seeing a marriage counselor in a last-ditch bid to save their troubled five-year union,” the insider shares.
The news outlet further added that they “decided to seek professional help after they became locked in a vicious cycle, arguing over Ellen’s workaholic ways, girl crushes and lavish spending.”
Ellen’s constant bickering with Portia has really drifted them apart to the point where they can’t even be around each other anymore. The 56-year old has grown to be “extremely insecure” when it comes to Portia being around other women, and always assumes de Rossi may cheat on her.
In the past, Ellen allegedly banned Portia from starring in movies because her female on-screen partners were too good looking, making Degeneres uncomfortable seeing that she wouldn’t be there to keep an eye out on her wife as she films her own talk-show.
“Ellen’s relationship with Portia has become toxic. They fight, they make up and then a few hours later they start lashing out at each other again.”
“Finally, they agreed to see a therapist to work through their issues. But they both realize counseling is the last step before throwing in the towel.”
The tabloid adds that to see this Hollywood item get through 2014 will be a miracle.
A marriage counselor can only do so much for one person, but in the end it’ll all likely fall apart due to the insecure, bitter relationship the two have for one another. Yikes!
