Amid all the swirling rumors of divorce, Portia de Rossi just told everyone to shut up. Portia just bought a new condo with wife Ellen DeGeneres, and word is that the place is swanky as all get-out.
According to RadarOnline, “Ellen and Portia just purchased an entire floor of a luxury building in Beverly Hills. It is very centrally located, right in the heart of everything that they do in Hollywood.”
Portia and Ellen also own a place in Santa Barbara, which they love. But the condo gives them a more convenient access to be able to take care of business.
The couple have a reputation for buying, improving and flipping luxury homes. It has become a joke that they move a lot.
They bought a sprawling estate in Hidden Valley back in 2009. That property had two barns and eight guest cabins, each with a different decor.
“When we bought the place, it was a professional horse facility,” DeGeneres said. “But it was really not taken care of.”
But Ellen went to work on the place and turned that all around.
“I thought it might take Ellen five years to finish the project and she did it in one,” de Rossi said. “It was shocking!”
They sold that place for $10.85 million.
The most recent purchase should put to rest any more of the vicious rumors that Portia and wife Ellen are on the outs. You just don’t go around buying houses with someone who you think is cheating on you while you are in rehab and about to divorce you.
“It’s a good sign that they are going to stay together,” the source tells Radar. “Ellen and Portia have always loved working on a home project together!”
