Portia de Rossi didn’t think a thing about the lunches wife Ellen DeGeneres was enjoying with pal Tatum O’Neal, until the ex-wife of tennis ace John McEnroe and mom of three unexpectedly announced she was dating “mostly women.”
Now, Portia, 42, is looking at the dates between Tatum, 51, and Ellen, 57, in a whole new light—and she’s not sure she likes what she sees.
“Portia had always assumed Tatum was straight,” a source tells Star. “Now alarm bells are going off in her head and she’s had to ask Ellen if there is anything going on between them. Ellen tells her ‘absolutely not,’ but the seed has definitely been planed in Portia’s mind.”
As Star readers already know, the couple already lead separate lives—they live in different homes—and this latest bout of jealousy will only make matters worse.
