For months, several rumours have surfaced about Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's marriage troubles. A new "false" report now claims that Ellen, who is a close friend of Jennifer Aniston, has started having romantic feelings for the "Murder Mystery" actress.

According to NW, Ellen and Jennifer have been spending several nights together and confiding in each other about their lives. The source said that the closeness between the two is making Portia jealous and she has "had a huge fight" with DeGeneres over Aniston.

However, these claims were later debunked.

Following the rumours have marriage trouble, Ellen posted a black and white snap of her and her spouse taken on their wedding day back on Aug. 16, 2008, on her Instagram account.
