Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi's marriage in a mess as allegations of rude behavior leave host 'on the edge'
Ellen is unable to sleep and has been dealing with a lot of anxiety after several social media users exposed her alleged habits
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has been surrounded by rumors that say that she is "mean" and unpleasant to work with and be around. The criticism and backlash that she has been receiving are reportedly starting to take a toll on her. As per reports, Ellen is unable to sleep and has been dealing with a lot of anxiety after several social media users exposed her alleged habits.
Globe magazine has shared that Ellen had broken down and was left in tears over what people are saying about her. According to an insider, Ellen is unable to understand where all the negative comments are coming from and why so many people seem to dislike her. The source shared, "She insists she’s done nothing to deserve this hostility and feels like she’s being bullied, not the other way around. Ellen is on the edge and she has shed a lot of tears!" The source also shared how her struggles are affecting her marriage to Portia de Rossi.
The comedian has apparently been lashing out at all those around her in light of the rumors and speculation. "Before all this, they were doing a lot better, but this has really knocked the stuffing out of Ellen. What she needs – besides solving this work mess ASAP – is a nice, long vacation or time off to take stock of her life and fully calm down," the insider added. The source shared that Ellen has been frantically in touch with her lawyers and crisis managers. It has also been reported that she has also not been eating much.
Recent reports by US Weekly also claimed the multimillionaire is upset upon realizing that the accusations of her being unpleasant are "not a passing thing." Ellen had also believed that the rumors had been a case of "sour grapes." We had earlier reported that a former 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' staffer said "the stories are all true!" referring to recent reports that Ellen is also allegedly one of the rudest celebrities in the world. "Is she always nice? No. It irritates me that people think she’s all sweetness and light and she gets away with it," the staffer added, NY Post reveals.
During the past few weeks, the talk show host has been making headlines for her reportedly unkind behavior. This comes after reports stated that her crew members would have to face a 60 percent reduction in pay even though the show continues to air amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Comedian Kevin T Porter had taken to his Twitter handle to say that he will donate money for every single "real" response that he receives. He sent out the request on March 20 and received an overwhelming response from social media users.
Comedian Chris Farah claimed that she had almost allegedly got fired from her job because of Ellen. She took to Twitter to share, "I worked @RealFoodDaily, served her & [Portia de Rossi] at brunch. She wrote a letter to the owner & complained about my chipped nail polish. Not that it was on her plate but just that it was on my hand. I had worked till closing the night before & this was next morn, almost got me fired."
TV writer Benjamin Siemon also claimed that he has heard stories that Ellen is not always the nicest to her talk show co-workers. "She has a ‘sensitive nose’ so everyone must chew gum from a bowl outside her office before talking to her and if she thinks you smell that day you have to go home and shower," Siemon shared.
