Ellen DeGeneres Portia de Rossi Divorce Update: Ellen Ignored Portia's Substance Abuse Problem - Too Focused On Career!

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are in the throes of some kind of marriage crisis, whether it be divorce, fighting, cheating, or Portia’s alcohol and drug addiction. It was recently reported that Portia attended rehab in May, but the bigger question is whether Ellen knew about Portia’s addiction and, if she did, why it took so long for her to admit Portia to a rehab center.

I get that Portia is a grown woman and nobody can force her to go to rehab if she doesn’t want to. But, at the same time, I’m having a hard time believing that Ellen just stood by and watched her wife go down this path without attempting to stop her.

So that leaves us with two choices. The first choice is that Ellen knew about Portia’s drinking and drugs, and encouraged it. Perhaps she didn’t think it was a big deal; perhaps she also participated, or perhaps the drugs helped with their sex life. Trust me, that’s not even a sordid detail in Hollywood.

The second option is that Ellen truly had no idea that Portia was traversing such a dangerously slippery slope, and her concentration on her TV show and career took away focus from her marriage. I mean, she had the Oscars to prepare for in February, she was constantly photographed with other women, and she also had her TV show to run at the same time. That would take a toll on any marriage, much less one where one half of the partnership is suddenly drinking and taking drugs.

Whichever option it is, it spells trouble for the married couple. Either Ellen’s indirectly responsible for setting off Portia’s issues, or she’s directly responsible for it. Will they be able to get past this?

    If you watched Portia when she guested on Ellen last year it was obvious Ellen controls the relationship. Portia made mention of Ellen’s obsession with house-flipping and the amount of times they have moved during their time together. Ellen immediatley put the kibosh on Portia and attempted to speak for Portia–even to the point of putting words in Portia’s mouth. It was uncomfortable to watch the tension that arose regarding Ellen’s house-flipping addiction. Two more months tops before someone files for divorce
