Apparently de Rossi started with sipping on white wine to drinking more than a bottle a day to ending with a pill.

“It got to the point where she was out of it four nights a week,” a source said.

RadarOnline said that de Rossi went to rehab because of an “explosive fight” she and DeGeneres had.

“Portia hadn’t been happy for a while and was drinking and isolating, and Ellen confronted her,” a source said. “Portia lost it and blamed Ellen for driving her to drink because of her controlling ways and said she wasn’t in love with her anymore. Ellen was crushed and screamed at Portia to get out.”

After that, de Rossi reportedly checked into Malibu’s Passages rehab.

In 2010, de Rossi opened up about her previous anorexia and drug use.

“I was very young when I was taking this drug, she said. “…I had actually gone to a doctor, had a body fat test and was weighed and the doctor prescribed phen fen to a 15-year-old…why would you ever think this was ever a good idea?”

The couple has yet to release an official statement.
