ELLEN DeGeneres‘ marriage to Portia de Rossi is on the rocks, according to reports — and it’s down to the talk-show host’s continued, roaring success.
The couple — who married in 2008 — are being driven further and further apart as Ellen’s career continues to soar to new heights.
“Sadly, Ellen and Portia’s relationship is quickly becoming just another typical Hollywood cliché,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“The more success and wealth they accumulate, the deeper the wedge between them.”
Ellen, 54, who rakes in a reported $45 million a year, has become obsessed with purchasing real estate as a way to fill the void in her relationship with Portia, 39.
“Ellen is grasping at straws in her desperate attempt to keep Portia happy by amassing all of that wealth, but it’s becoming blatantly obvious that it’s forcing them further apart,” said the source.
“At this point, the only thing that’s going to save Ellen and Portia’s relationship is to find a way to make Ellen’s success secondary to what really matters – their love for each other.”
