‘Ellen swore she was going to quit so they could relocate,’ spills the insider, who claims the couple were planning to retire to Australia.
‘She told all her friends she was looking forward to retiring’ and now Portia ‘sees it as a betrayal’.
As a result, the couple are claimed by Star to be on ‘shaky ground’ and ‘some say the relationship will not last.’
The publication outrageously claims that the couple, who have been married for 11 years, have been ‘fighting non-stop’ and that Portia is ‘so upset she’ll leave the house for a couple of hours with no word on where she is going.’
Sources also tell Star that Portia has ‘reached her limit’.

‘She tried to make a happy home with Ellen in LA. She cooks for her, fetches her tea or wine after a hard day and listens to her gripe. She’s the giver and Ellen is the taker,’ the source sensationally adds.
Despite the odds, the insider says the couple are ‘trying to make it work.’ And judging by their recent togetherness in pictures, that seems to be working.
At the time of publication, the couple had not responded to Star’s claims.
However, Portia has spoken in the past about reports of alleged friction between her and Ellen, insisting there is no truth to the rumours.
‘The divorce rumours came and then we really knew the perceptions had changed,’ Portia told Us Weekly.
‘I’m not kidding. I know it sounds ridiculous, but when that started happening I thought, “Oh, now we’re finally accepted.”
Portia added of the speculation, ‘We avoid it. We don’t care.’
