“Bottom line, Portia feels Ellen didn’t let her be herself or develop her acting career more,” an insider told the magazine, adding Portia feels overshadowed by Ellen’s success. “She said she needs to break free or she’s going to snap.”
“Portia’s ring has been off for a while now, and though she would occasionally slip it on to show Ellen she was trying, that’s over now… There’s no turning back. It’s just a matter of time before the whole world knows,” the source continued.
“It’s happening. [Ellen] and Portia are breaking up,” the insider added.
Now, Ellen is focusing on how to protect her whopping $360 million fortune in the divorce. “Ellen will pay to guarantee that Portia won’t go public with their relationship and marriage in a future tell-all book,” the source said. “Ellen wants to protect her reputation and her brand. If Portia plays her cards right, Ellen will give her whatever she wants.”
