They’ve Had So Many Is­sues

In Touch (USA) - - Couples news -

SCAN­DAL DRAMA

Ellen pub­licly praised her wife when Portia landed a star­ring role on Scan­dal in 2014, but pri­vately, she wanted her at home. Ellen told her wife “she never would have got­ten the role if it wasn’t for her,” says a source. “Ellen is in­se­cure and feels threat­ened by any suc­cess Portia may have.”

BOOZE AND PILLS

In May 2014, Ellen forced Portia to en­ter Passages Mal­ibu re­hab, mul­ti­ple sources told In Touch at the time, af­ter she went from oc­ca­sion­ally sip­ping white wine “to drink­ing at least a bot­tle or more a day and top­ping it off with a pill,” says a Portia in­sider.

LIV­ING APART

They scrapped plans to re­new their vows for their seventh wed­ding an­niver­sary in Au­gust 2015 af­ter fight­ing over Ellen’s de­sire “to use her time off [from her talk show] to get eye­lid surgery,” ex­plained a source close to Portia, who says Ellen moved into a Bev­erly Hills condo (pic­tured) amid the rift.

SILENT TREAT­MENT When they’re not ar­gu­ing, “Portia is giv­ing Ellen the cold shoul­der, which pisses Ellen off to no end,” says an in­sider.
