Portia de Rossi's rehab stay may have been much more involved than you think. Several reports have surfaced claiming that Ellen DeGeneres cheated on Portia and carried on a relationship with at least one other woman while she was getting help for addiction. According to Mercury News, Portia's rehab stay was a "secret" in the fact that she didn't make the information public. She reportedly checked in after a fight with Ellen.
A source said:
"She felt like a prisoner in her own home. She went from sipping white wine occasionally to drinking at least a bottle or more a day and topping it off with a pill. It got to the point where she was out of it four nights a week. They've had vicious shouting matches -- with both of them yelling cruel, soul-crushing put-downs that they both deeply regretted."
With the recent cheating and divorce rumors surrounding Ellen and Portia, it makes sense that Portia's rehab stay would not only be dug up and reported on now, but become part of a huge scandal that has the two splitting up.
If Portia de Rossi was in rehab in May, it could have been a follow-up of sorts. Portia suffered from serious drug addiction many years ago, and it's possible that she didn't have a relapse -- sometimes people need to re-enter rehab just to find their center and keep their sobriety in check. Now the media is making it sound like Portia went to rehab because of marital problems that she is/was having.
According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, a battle between Ellen and Portia has been brewing for quite some time. Portia is reportedly tired of living in Ellen's shadow. And her frustration has pushed Ellen away... apparently. And that's why Ellen is cheating, supposedly.
Ellen and Portia just can't catch a break. Ellen was walking with a friend -- "a mystery brunette" -- and that turned into a "thing" because of the timing. Ellen was out for lunch with her gal pal around the time that her wife was in rehab. So that must mean Ellen was having an affair, right?
"This photo op for the paparazzi was not an accident, but instead very purposeful. Ellen knew that she and her new friend would be photographed together and that Portia would see the snaps."
Portia de Rossi is going to need rehab from the mess that the media has created. The rumors have gotten completely out of control at this point.
