“Portia will go after half of Ellen’s fortune,” an insider tells In Touch exclusively. “Ellen’s attorneys will fight it as much as possible, but Ellen wants to keep the details of the divorce private. The last thing she wants is to her dirty laundry plastered all over. She’s beloved by millions, but they don’t know what she’s really like behind closed doors.”
According to the insider, Ellen will stop at nothing to keep her secrets secret.

“Ellen will pay to guarantee that Portia won’t go public with their marriage in a future tell-all book,” the insider explains. “Ellen wants to protect her reputation and her brand. If Portia plays her cards right, Ellen will give her whatever she wants.”
