A former bodyguard for daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres just came forward to corroborate reports that she does not treat people well behind the scenes. Tom Majercak’s personal account adds to a growing number of reports outing Ellen’s nasty off-camera demeanor in recent weeks.
Recently, “Ellen” show staffers claimed the host left them in the dark about pay and about future employment for weeks after production of her talk show shut down in March due to coronavirus. To make matters worse, Ellen opted to use freelancers for her home streaming to freelancers rather than her full-time staff.
Then, a beauty blogger who appeared on DeGeneres’ show earlier this year spoke out to claim that the host was rude to her during the appearance.
Now, a former bodyguard of Ellen’s is saying that all of these reports are absolutely correct.

Tom Majercak told Fox News that he served as Ellen’s bodyguard during the 2014 Academy Awards. Ellen hosted the Oscars that year and Majercak was truly stunned by how she behaved.
On the night of the awards show, Majercak was tasked with escorting DeGeneres, her mother, and her partner, Portia De Rossi. He guarded the entourage throughout the event as well as to the glamorous post-ceremony Governor’s Ball.
