Ellen DeGeneres Shoots Down Claims Her Marriage is in Trouble

Ellen DeGeneres Kicks-off the Duracell/Toys for Tots Initiative "Power a Smile" Campaign

Ellen DeGeneres has shot down rumors that her marriage to actress Portia de Rossi is on the rocks. The tv host claims there is no trouble in paradise at all and the rumors are simply made up. The report suggested that Portia was interested in taking a large chunk of Ellen’s fortune with her after the divorce is finalized but Ellen says she doesn’t need to divorce her to get her hands on the money:

“Apparently she’s demanding $220 million! I’ll give it to her, I don’t care – she doesn’t have to leave me…”

The story was created when Portia was seen without her wedding ring but Portia has explained that there was a good reason for her to remove her ring and it isn’t an indication that their marriage is over at all:

“The tabloids had a photo of Portia not wearing her wedding ring. She goes, ‘I didn’t wear it because when I ride horses and I’m holding the reins, it gives me a blister!’ The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time. I really do. She surprises me all the time. It’s what anyone experiences when you find that person that gets you, wants to take care of you, wants the best for you. We’re really lucky because we know how rare it is.”
