A rumored split between Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres seems to have appeared on the horizon.
The actress has had a bout with anorexia and alcoholism in the past and whenever she faces stress, the old problems resurface with a vengeance.
Meanwhile, Ellen is an independent soul that gets to do what she likes in her own way. This mismatch has affected their relationship in an adverse manner.
The people close to the couple have only this much to say that the two are at odds with each other and their pact with each other has suffered.
Ellen is obviously the lucky one in the relationship. She gets to spend the most and she also has a ton of female friends whom she entertains on a daily basis in fancy restaurants.
But Rossi wants to adopt a baby. This has gotten in the way of their current understanding as a Sapphic couple. Although in the beginning it was decided that the two would not adopt a kid, with the passage of time Portia has begun having motherly pangs (as any woman in her place would).
All that she wants is a baby she can call her own. But Ellen is against all this. So their bond has come to an impasse. And since Portia is the weaker one in the relationship, she has only one way of responding to her dilemma: by starving.
Her body weight has gone down dangerously and she appears almost sickly in the photographs taken by the paparazzi. Although Ellen would probably not like to leave her lady love, the relationship is currently a rocky one. It could flounder on the shores of motherhood, which Rossi desires so much.
