"This is the end. Ellen and Portia have been squabbling and drifting apart for some time. But for Portia to leave Ellen for a man is the culmination of Ellen’s worst fears," a source said.
Portia allegedly fell in love with one of her co-stars in Scandal. However, the man was not named. Thus, Ellen was gearing up for a $220 million divorce.
The source added that it was painful for DeGeneres because her former girlfriend, Anne Heche, left her for a man.
Star also claimed the same about the couple’s relationship. It alleged that de Rossi was dumping DeGeneres for a man.
A source also claimed that the Santa Clarita Diet actress told her wife that she wanted a divorce.
Apparently, the report was not true. Four years later, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are still together.
Also, the claims about their troubled marriage are not new at all.
In 2017, Radar Online also claimed that DeGeneres bought a new pad where she would stay after her split from de Rossi.
The magazine even quoted an unnamed source saying, "where she's [DeGeneres] moving as she rebuilds her life after Portia."

DeGeneres didn’t stop there. In December, they celebrated their 15 years of togetherness as a couple. The Finding Dory star hired a plane with a banner printed with 15 and a heart.
However, it didn't work as planned because the print was too small for de Rossi to read. The comedian realized that she should have specified the size.
