American talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are allegedly on the verge of a split. OK! magazine has come up with claims that their marriage is in trouble.

A source told the publication that Rossi was "livid" when she found out that the Oscar host put their Hollywood Hills home up for sale because she "craves stability" and "doesn't want to pack up and move every six months."

The insider said: "She feels like Ellen's pulled the rug out from under her."

The source went on to say that their relationship is on the rocks because de Rossi "can't take" the constant relocating and "just wants a place she can call home."

DeGeneres married the Australian-American actress in 2008 at their home in Beverly Hills after the state of California lifted its ban on same-sex marriages. She had previously slammed reports that she and Rossi are heading for divorce.

"We don't know anything about it until somebody tells us," she said, according to Entertainment Tonight‎. "I don't read the tabloids, and I don't have a publicist."

"I don't know why they do this," DeGeneres added. "We're kind of flattered. We really don't almost break up, we don't fight, we're madly in love, and I guess it's boring."

Adding on, the comedienne recently took to Instagram to declare her love for the Scandal actress on her birthday as she turned 44 on 31 January. She wrote: "Happy birthday, @PortiadeRossi. You're de best wife in de world."
