Ellen DeGeneres’ marriage drama just took a shocking new twist.
“Portia secretly taped some of their arguments. She was drunk,” a source tells the magazine. “Then she threatened to expose Ellen as controlling and manipulating.”
The Oscar hostess, 56, flew into a rage when she discovered the 41-year-old Arrested Development actress’ scheming.
In addition to breaking de Rossi’s cell phone, DeGeneres read her emails to ensure she hadn’t send the video to anyone, the source says.
Despite the shocking rehab stint and the explosive fights, the source says the couple is working hard to repair their broken marriage.
“Portia going to rehab was the first step in saving their marriage,” insists the source. “They want their marriage to work more than anything.”
