Portia de Rossi spent thirty days in a treatment facility in Malibu, California, In Touch magazine claimed earlier this month.
The actress entered the Passages Malibu rehab for a 30-day treatment and her wife allegedly visited her every weekend to offer support.
Now, the tabloid cited sources who claim that Portia de Rossi believes Ellen DeGeneres cheated on her before she went to rehab and the couple is now sitting down on a leather sofa somewhere, receiving couples therapy.

“It’s going to take a lot for Portia to trust Ellen again,” a source told In Touch magazine.
“They kept up with the therapy after Portia got out of rehab, but they still have a long way to go.”
The magazine writes that Ellen DeGeneres’ alleged dalliance was “with one of their mutual friends right before Portia’s rehab stint in May”, according to a source.
This isn’t the first time that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have seen their names attached to headlines declaring marital turmoil. Tabloid chatter has followed them consistently since they tied the knot in 2008. Ellen DeGeneres addressed one of the reports during a sit-down chat with People magazine in February, putting to rest any lingering questions of their commitment to one another.
“The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time. I really do. She surprises me all the time,” Ellen DeGeneres said.
“It’s what anyone experiences when you find that person that gets you, wants to take care of you, wants the best for you. We’re really lucky because we know how rare it is,” she told People magazine.
Ellen DeGeneres took some time out of her talk show on Wednesday to address rumors that have surfaced in the last several months suggesting she and Portia de Rossi are split-bound.
“The other day I was at the hair salon getting these extensions put in,” Ellen DeGeneres joked.
“And there were tabloids all over the hair salon… and on one of them, Portia and I were in the top right-hand corner. And I thought, <<Oh that’s so sweet, they’re honoring us>>. But then I read the headline underneath. And it said, <<Ellen and Portia Marriage Crumbles>>. And I was like, <<Oh, what happened? They seemed so happy>>. And then I was like, <<Wait, I’m Ellen>>. And I should know if that was happening.”

Ellen DeGeneres’s monologue took a more serious turn when she shot down the rumors.
“It’s so ridiculous to me. 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 really is true,” she said.
“And we argue if we’d let a kangaroo carry us around in its pouch for a year. I would. She wouldn’t. She’ll change her mind. Who wouldn’t want to be in the pouch of a kangaroo for a year? Hopping around. And she’s like ‘no’ but anyway.”
And if an announcement about some big change in her life ever needs to be made, Ellen DeGeneres, 55, promised: “I’ll announce it here first.”
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi married in August 2008 after 4 years of dating.
According to a number of unconfirmed rumors which have surfaced in the press recently, Portia de Rossi and her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres may be on the rocks.
Star magazine claims that the current relationship issues are over an alleged crush Ellen DeGeneres has on none other than Pamela Anderson.

According to the publication, a source claimed that Ellen DeGeneres not only has a crush on Pamela Anderson but is more or less obsessed with her.
The source said: “[Pamela Anderson] is all Ellen talks about these days. It’s become a real issue for Portia.”
The publication further claimed that Portia de Rossi needs to watch out since Pamela Anderson cut her hair short like Ellen DeGeneres’: “As the old theory goes, when two people spend way too much time together, they start to look alike.”
Portia De Rossi has revealed that she will never have children with Ellen DeGeneres as she posed for a new issue of Out magazine.
Portia De Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have been together for over eight years and married for nearly five, but they never had the desire to start a family.
“You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did. So it’s just going to be me and Ellen and no babies,” 40-year-old Portia De Rossi says in the interview.
She says she never felt the pressure to procreate like many women do when they are in their mid-30’s.

“There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, <<Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love?>>” she explains.
“Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart? I didn’t feel that my response was <<yes>> to the latter.”
The Australian actress poses in a black and white portrait on the cover of the popular style magazine.
With her hair styled in a similar elfin-like crop as Ellen DeGeneres, it is almost hard to tell the difference between the two.
While Ellen DeGeneres continues her daily daytime talk show, Portia De Rossi will be returning to the small screen on May 26th when Netflix premieres a brand new 15 episode season of the top-notch comedy Arrested Development.
Lena Dunham, Portia de Rossi and Zosia Mamet should think about hiring a new stylist after their abysmal efforts on the red carpet at the 64th Emmy Awards.
Girls creator Lena Dunham, 26, tried her hand at femininity to soften her tomboy pixie cut, but ended up in a lace Prada dress that made her look frumpy – and a lot larger than she actually is.
Unfazed by her fashion faux pas, and her failure to win one of the four categories she was nominated for on Sunday, Lena Dunham chirpily tweeted her way throughout the evening from the Nokia Theatre in LA.
Praising the leading man of the night, Lena Dunham wrote: “Didn’t @jimmykimmel crush it tonight? The perfect old fashioned host swagger, generous yet saucy. A pleasure to behold!”

Similarly, Zosia Mamet didn’t manage to execute a feminine flair on her Bihbu Mahopatra creation.
Zosia Mamet, 24, who plays Shoshanna Shapiro in Dunham’s HBO show Girls, swept her hair from her face in a gelled down side-parting, while looking a little uncomfortable in monochrome gown.

And while Portia de Rossi usually excels with her all-American girl look, she opted for something more masculine, posing with wife Ellen DeGeneres in an unusual Maison Valentino jumpsuit.
Portia de Rossi’s look divided fans on Twitter, with many complimenting the lace all-in-one and others ridiculing it.
One user of the social networking site wrote: “My god. WTF convinced Portia de Rossi that an old tea towel was appropriate garb for the #Emmys,” while another described her as “lovely in lace”.

Game of Thrones star Lena Headey chose a bewitching Giorgio Armani dress – and Penny Preville jewels – which had criss-cross spaghetti straps and a sheer bodice to show off her back tattoos.
The gown was complete with theatrical sweeping arms that reached the red carpet, and were something akin to Addams Family martriarch Morticia.
But where Lena Headey failed to inject any color, Julianne Moore stepped in – bravely wearing all yellow.
Credit where it’s due, Julianne Moore, 51, easily defied her half century, but the color block Dior Couture gown was somewhat tent-like as it covered her from her neck to her toes.
Ashley Judd turned a pink dream into a nightmare, with her Carolina Herrera custom raspberry silk gown and giant beehive up-do.
The Missing actress saw the funny side of her extravagant hairstyle, tweeting: “My hair is so grand I am sitting on the floor of the car on our way to the #Emmys!”
And despite her dubious candyfloss creation, Ashley Judd certainly knows how to embrace her curves and had the right idea when it came to accessorizing.
She added: “Most important accessory other than our umbrella on 102 F red carpet? Tigers Milk bar. Snacks are crucial! #Emmys.”
Ellen DeGeneres, America’s most loved female stand-up comedian, television host and actress, finally got a star on the Walk of Fame yesterday.
Ellen DeGeneres, 54, was honored on Hollywood Boulevard in the traditional ceremony, and her lookalike mother Betty, 82, and wife Portia De Rossi were on hand to help her celebrate.
As always the funny woman hammed it up at the event as she posed with her new star.
In addition to the tradition of placing her hands on the star, Ellen DeGeneres got even closer to her new plaque, appearing to be giving it a kiss.
The blonde star wore one of her most stylish suits for the event, opting for a light grey jacket and trousers paired with a white open-neck shirt and black and white polka dot tie.
She also slipped on a pair of snazzy shoes in the form of bright white brogues.

Meanwhile, Portia De Rossi complemented her partner’s outfit by dressing in a flowing charcoal shift dress paired with tan suede open-toe ankle boots.
The couple looked more in love than ever as they cuddled up for numerous pictures.
Ellen DeGeneres’ extremely proud mother Betty, who often appears on her talk show, was by her side the whole way through the ceremony.
And it is easy to see where Ellen DeGeneres gets her looks from, as she is the spitting image of Betty, who has a similar cropped hair-cut to her daughter.
Her mother is one of her biggest fans, and went on to become a LGBT-rights activist after her daughter came out in 1997.
She is one of the first non-gay spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign’s National Coming Out Project.
Betty DeGeneres has written two books in relation to her daughter – titled Love, Ellen: A Mother Daughter Journey and Just a Mom.
In Love, Ellen: A Mother Daughter Journey, Betty DeGeneres describes her reaction to her daughter coming out as a lesbian, and her path from passive acceptance to becoming a passionate advocate for LGBT rights.
Speeches at yesterday’s event were made by fellow comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.
Ellen DeGeneres received the 2,477th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of television in front of the W Hollywood Hotel.
It has been great couple of weeks for the television star.
Portia De Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres last week celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, as Ellen also marked her first decade as the host of her wildly popular daytime talk show.
To also celebrate this, The Hollywood Reporter put her on its front and back cover, along with a six-page story inside.
TV presenter Ellen DeGeneres has made a $1million profit by selling her Malibu beach house just six months after buying it from Brad Pitt.
Ellen DeGeneres bought the luxury four-bedroom home from Brad Pitt for $12 million and has sold it to cosmestics mogul Victoria Jackson for $13 million.
The oceanside property has sweeping coastal views of the Pacific Ocean and Point Mugu State Park, a lap pool and a modern kitchen.

Brad Pitt bought himself the 4,088 square-foot home on the Encinal Bluffs shortly after his divorce from Jennifer Aniston.
But despite being made up of two houses it was still not big enough for his rapidly expanding family with fiancée Angelina Jolie.
This is not the only change for Ellen DeGeneres.
Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi recently downsized from a palatial $49 million Beverly Hills compound to a more manageable $18 million 8500sq ft in the exclusive Trousdale Estates area of the city.
Their new home was designed by famed architect Hal Levitt and built in 1958 on an acre sized plot, which includes a swimming pool.
It features glass walls, soaring ceilings, several fireplaces, a library, four bedrooms and six bathrooms, along with views across Los Angeles.
The couple, who this week celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary, sold their previous home to American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.
That property was 2.87 acres, a whole city block, and boasted a main house comprising of 9,200 square foot, three adjacent guest-homes, and a selection of sprawling wildlife ponds.
