They’ve Had So Many Issues
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.
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.
