The talk show host, 59, and E.T. star Drew, 42, have been pals for years, sources said.
But since they’re partnered on a new TV series, the two are closer than ever — pushing De Rossi to set the table for a blockbuster $350 million split!
“Portia is threatened by Ellen’s relationship with Drew,” a source claimed.
“Their emotional bond is obvious, and Portia is feeling completely left out.”
DeGeneres is executive producer of the reality show First Dates, and Barrymore — who recently divorced her third husband — is the narrator.
De Rossi’s suspicions about their relationship ramped up in the wake of Barrymore’s public confession that she’s bisexual!
“Do I like women sexually? Yes, I do. Totally,” Barrymore recently admitted.
“I think a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful.”
In fact, it was The National ENQUIRER that reported Barrymore hooked up with Juno actress Ellen Page and encouraged her to come out of the closet.
Now mom of two Barrymore has become a semi-regular on DeGeneres’ talk show — further isolating De Rossi!
“Ellen and Drew have the same goofy sense of humor, and they laugh like idiots at each other’s jokes,” an insider claimed.
“Portia is a lot more serious, and it’s like those two have some unspoken language that she’s not part of.”
Besides that, rumors of trouble in their eight-year marriage continue to dog DeGeneres and De Rossi.
“They spend less and less time together,” said an insider.
