Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has dismissed rumours that she is to divorce her wife Portia de Rossi, saying:
There’s not one ounce of truth to any of it.”
Speaking on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show, DeGeneres said:
We really don’t almost break up, we don’t fight, we’re madly in love, and I guess it’s boring. It’s so ridiculous to me,’ she continued. ‘There’s not one ounce of truth to any of it. I’m very happily married. In fact, the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more. That is all. It’s really true.”
Explaining that she doesn’t pay attention to showbiz gossip, she said:
We don’t know anything about it until somebody tells us. I don’t read the tabloids, I don’t have a publicist. I don’t know why they do this. We’re kind of flattered because for a while no one cared about us and we thought “Oh, lesbians aren’t worthy of tabloid stories” so now we’re kind of flattered that they care about us.”
Having celebrated their seventh anniversary last month, the grinning pair walked hand-in-hand through New York on Thursday.
DeGeneres and de Rossi first started dating in 2004, and married in August 2008.
