Ellen Degeneres is still making headlines, but this time it’s not about any doggie drama, but drama in her own personal life. Star Magazine (heh, I know, consider the source) is reporting that Ellen Degeneres and her girlfriend of three years, Portia De Rossi, have split.
A source told Star that the honeymoon is over between Ellen and Portia while also revealing her recent breakdown on her show regarding the whole Iggy scandal:
“Ellen would never have broken down like that on TV if things were right in her home life.”
Good God, with all the publicity that was going on with the whole Iggy hand off, who wouldn’t break down? That would certainly put a toll on me, and okay, if things aren’t going that well at home, sure, that’s going to add to the stress of it. It also doesn’t help that Howard Stern announced on his show that Ellen has handed off pups nine times before.
On the other hand, another source revealed:
“Portia has been telling Ellen she’s very unhappy at home. When it comes down to it, she wants to be with someone younger and hotter. She wants out, but Ellen has been begging her to stay. Portia is really everything in this world to her.�?
So Portia wants someone younger and hotter. Sure, I get that, and isn’t this exactly what Ellen did to Alexandra Hedison, her partner just prior to Portia? She left Alexandra to be with someone younger and hotter, didn’t she?
And what do you think? Do you believe that Ellen and Portia split?
