Ellen DeGeneres did not â€śdumpâ€ť Portia de Rossi, despite a new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can debunk it. While this report claims a â€ś$400 million divorceâ€ť is on the horizon, there is plenty of evidence the couple is still happily together.
The National Enquirer contends in its new issue, â€śFed-up Ellen DeGeneres has fled the marital home she shares with Portia de Rossi, setting the stage for a blockbuster $400 million divorce.â€ť Itâ€™s specifically claimed they â€śtangled in a fight to end all fights that climaxed with Ellen ripping off her wedding ring and moving out.â€ť A so-called â€śinsiderâ€ť is quoted as saying, â€śItâ€™s all very shady and ominous. Ellen went to great lengths to keep the news from their closest friends to avoid being asked questions.â€ť One has to wonder then how this unnamed and untraceable â€śinsiderâ€ť has any insight.
This supposed snitch goes on to claim to the magazine, without evidence, â€ś[Ellen] and Portia were fighting more and more. Eventually, what normally would have been a routine back-and-forth turned nasty.â€ť It allegedly led DeGeneres to â€śstorm outâ€ť and move. Yet itâ€™s never said just what the pair were â€śfightingâ€ť about, or even when the purported â€śbrutal blowupâ€ť took place. Instead, an anonymous â€śsourceâ€ť vaguely claims DeGeneres and de Rossi now â€śspend less and less time together,â€ť have been â€śliving separate lives,â€ť and â€śhardly say a word to each other all day.â€ť
But the outlet admittedly has no proof that the couple is actually calling it quits. Rather, the publication predicts, â€śIf they do announce a divorce, it promises to be one of the most expensive in Hollywood history.â€ť Of course, the tabloid has spent years claiming, without evidence, that the stars are divorcing. Just a month ago, the magazine insisted DeGeneres and de Rossi were having a â€śmarriage crisis,â€ť and then days later contradictorily said they were happily preparing for their upcoming anniversary.
Most significant right now is that while the magazine is maintaining they arenâ€™t spending time together, DeGeneres and de Rossi just took a romantic trip to Africa, which they both documented on social media. Only three days ago, de Rossi posted on Instagram a picture of her wife on the vacation with the caption, â€śJust because sheâ€™s beautiful @theellenshow.â€ť Among the recent snapshots on DeGeneresâ€™ Instagram is a photo of her with her arms around de Rossi. She wrote, â€śI love this photo.â€ť
Conclusion: The National Enquirer has been using anonymous â€śsourcesâ€ť and â€śinsidersâ€ť for years to falsely claim DeGeneres and de Rossi are breaking up. This latest issue refers to the â€śfight to end all fights,â€ť yet never says what it was about or when it took place, and doesnâ€™t provide any proof to substantiate the contention that DeGeneres subsequently moved out. Furthermore, contrary to the allegations about the couple having â€śseparate livesâ€ť and not spending time together, they just returned from a trip to Africa. It is readily apparent that DeGeneres has not â€śdumpedâ€ť de Rossi. Additionally, a mutual friend of ours and DeGeneres also dismissed the cover story, and couldnâ€™t believe the tabloid even published it.
