Ellen DeGeneres shocked audience members when back in October, she debuted a new hairstyle. Ellen is known for wearing her super-short pixie cut brushed straight down but began wearing it flipped back and with added height. The style is the way her wife Portia de Rossi has worn her hair for years and people were stunned to see the look on her. Now, Portia is changing up her look and some can’t help but point to the timing!
Is Portia changing her look due to Ellen DeGeneres copying her hairstyle?

Portia’s long hair comes along with rumors that her marriage to Ellen is on rocky ground. Ellen has been under fire since a social media movement launched with the goal of exposing Ellen as being one of the meanest people in Hollywood. Ellen had built a reputation with the public as being a charitable celebrity whose compassion knew no bounds. Whether it was people struggling with poverty, animals, or bullying, Ellen had become known as a celebrity who genuinely cared about people and animals and the problems they faced.
President Barack Obama presented Ellen with the Medal of Freedom and referred to her as being full of kindness and light. Now, it’s been alleged that Ellen’s kindness was an act and that she routinely belittled those who worked for her.
Though there are plenty of rumors that Ellen’s marriage to Portia is on the rocks due to the scandal, Portia shared a photo on her Instagram account that read: ‘I Stand By Ellen.’
