Portia de Rossi reportedly entered rehab after row with wife Ellen

Reports have claimed Aussie actress Portia de Rossi's recent stay at a Malibu rehab clinic was promped by a fight she had with wife Ellen DeGeneres.

According to sources from In Touch magazine de Rossi checked herself into Passages, a rehab facility for those facing drug and alcohol issues, after an argument which escalated between herself and the talkshow host.

"Portia hadn't been happy for a while and was drinking and isolating (herself), and Ellen confronted her," the source claims.

"Portia lost it and blamed Ellen for driving her to drink because of her controlling ways and said she wasn't in love with her anymore. Ellen was crushed and screamed at Portia to get out."

Despite rumours that the relationship was on the rocks, DeGeneres is said to have visited the Arrested Development star every day throughout her month-long stay in the clinic.

This isn't the first time de Rossi has sought help for health concerns. Her 2010 autobiography Unbearable Lightness offered an insight into an eating disorder she suffered throughout her teenage years which led to treatment.
