Ellen and Portia have been surrounded by rumors of a split in their marriage for some time. Are they just rumors, or is a divorce on the cards?…
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have long fought rumors of marital woes, yet inside sources revealed that the couple may have finally reached their breaking point. Amid reports of an inevitable divorce, DeGeneres and de Rossi were recently spotted getting extra cozy on a shopping trip. Was the outing nothing more than a publicity stunt?
The source revealed that it is only a matter of time before DeGeneres and de Rossi call it quits and get a divorce. Although it sounds like the marriage is about to end, DeGeneres did everything in her power to save it. DeGeneres reportedly forced de Rossi to undergo couple’s therapy and individual counseling to salvage their relationship. De Rossi, however, wasn’t willing to change and may have been waiting for the perfect time before pulling the plug on the marriage.
De Rossi and DeGeneres are coming close to their ten-year anniversary. The couple tied the knot in August of 2008, and if they make it to the ten-year mark then de Rossi could be entitled to a larger divorce settlement.
The talk show host is worth well over $350 million and it is entirely possible that de Rossi will demand a lot of spousal support if they split up. De Rossi’s net worth, in comparison, runs at around the $20 million mark. The only way that DeGeneres can avoid splitting her vast fortune with de Rossi is to end the marriage before the tenth anniversary.
DeGeneres’ marriage reportedly fell apart because she was way too controlling. A source claims that DeGeneres tries to control every aspect of de Rossi’s life, both personal and professional. DeGeneres’ micromanaging ways eventually took a toll on their relationship, though she isn’t solely to blame for their crumbling romance.
