The Hollywood rumor mill has been obsessed with the marriage of Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres this past week, with Friday’s tabloid headlines declaring a “split is on the horizon.” Upon further inspection and research, the links to twitter, which “seem” to validate the breakup, actually appear to be hazardous downloads.
The Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres “news” is trending because nothing is sacred. I4U News reported Portia’s weight loss was a sign that stress from the relationship has caused her to relapse into anorexia, bulimia and alcoholism, and that DeGeneres is a “control freak.” Other outlets blamed Sofia Vergara and declared de Rossi has been “starving herself” because she is jealous of the relationship the hot Latina has with the talk show host.
In this mess of Portia de Rossi rumors stands the 56-year-old Ellen tweeting about gay marriage rights, “A year ago today, the Supreme Court ruled that marriage is a right we should all be allowed. Today, 31 states have agreed. Change feels good.” And the majority of headlines with Portia on social media dedicated to Portia are linked to hazardous downloads, except for this piece. Caveat emptor readers; don’t believe everything you read and, steer clear of links with Portia de Rossi in them.
The 41-year-old Portia de Rossi began dating Ellen DeGeneres in 2004, and the two were married on August 16, 2008. Portia legally changed her name to Portia Lee James DeGeneres in 2010. This is about all of the information the public is entitled to, and if the couple is having problems, then it is their business. Tabloid speculation about weight, illness, love, infidelity or anything else feeble minds can dream up is simply conjecture, and shouldn’t receive any play. For now, there has not been a public statement made about Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres from either celebrity or their reps, therefore let's just leave them alone.
