A new report from In Touch claims that Portia De Rossi managed to secretly record fights she had with Ellen while both were drunk
. Apparently Portia was planning on using them to show the world that Ellen is not the sweet person she pretends to be for the public and that it would expose Ellen for who she really is. At some point Ellen became aware of the existence of the recordings and searched through Portia's e-mail and phone to make sure she had not sent the videos to anyone. It was shortly after Ellen learned of the recordings that Portia checked herself into rehab. Can you imagine if recordings like this did show up in public? Think about what happened to Mel Gibson's career? Ellen would turn off all of her fans. They would be some of the most watched videos ever.
