A recent fancy catered affair in their Hollywood Hills home was headed toward disaster — with the couple arguing and yelling at each other in front of shocked guests — until de Rossi sneaked off to a nearby bedroom and returned with a lit joint!
A source on the scene told Radar, “It was a very awkward night for a while. But everything got really mellow once the spliff was passed around.”
As Radar previously reported, the talk show host, 59, and de Rossi, 44, had been fighting, with DeGeneres’ boozy behavior contributing to their problems.
According to a source, however, DeGeneres now has her drinking under control!
“Ellen has always been a drinker, but she does not drink on set or when she is working,” said the source. “That does not seem to be their problem right now.”
At the recent party, the spy told Radar that some guests even had to walk through clouds of ganja smoke as they meandered through the party, but that the mood brightened up significantly.
“Ellen and Portia were carrying on like a couple of happy high schoolers.”
