Ellen DeGeneres is putting on a happy face, but her marriage to Portia de Rossi is still in trouble! As usual, the talk show host has recently been flaunting her “thriving marriage,” but a friend of the couple tells Star that the relationship is actually hanging by a thread.
“Portia just rolls her eyes at Ellen’s proclamations,” the insider says. “It really frustrates her that Ellen puts so much energy into trying to save face than actually trying to fix their marriage.”
Still, the Arrested Development has threatened divorce over her wife’s domineering ways before, but continues to go along with her demands. Friends say that despite her unhappy relationship, Portia is reluctant to leave that she might lapse back into old, self-destructing habits. “Portia’s grown accustomed to having her every need taken care of,” the source reveals. “She will be destroyed if her marriage to Ellen ends.”
