Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are allegedly having relationship problems over the talk show host's drinking. The couple are hit by reports that their marriage in trouble.

DeGeneres had recently revealed that she dislocated her finger when she tripped and fell after a dinner party. She said: Well, I had two glasses of wine and fell into a door. The dogs were so excited to see us and I caught the lip of the top step. I was a foot away from the door and I fell into the door and it did something to my finger, I knew something was wrong."

"So, Portia drove me to the hospital—to the emergency room... UCLA, thank you so much...There was a lot of people who were helpful, but Tammy, thank you so much. Tammy was my nurse who was taking care of me," she added.

A source told Radar Online: "Ellen needs help and she needs it now," a pal told Radar.

"She can joke all she wants about this, but it's not funny. And this could spell the end of her marriage," the insider added.

"Ellen has been honest about her addiction fear and has discussed it with family and friends many times," the source continued.

Previously, DeGeneres had gushed about Rossi. She told People: "I'm grateful for everything. I'm grateful for my health, and I'm so grateful for the love in my life. Because not everybody finds that. Not everybody finds that best friend."

"Portia and I constantly say to each other, 'We are so lucky.' Sometimes it's lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say thank you to whatever, whoever is out there. I've gotten to a place where I really am just settled. Really. I know that I'm not going anywhere. She's not going anywhere. I'm not saying the relationship took a while; I'm saying in my life, it took a while to find this," she added.
