ELLEN DeGeneres had to rush Portia de Rossi to hospital to undergo emergency appendicitis surgery.
The actress, 48, began experiencing “a lot of pain” and was soon taken to the ER to deal with the problem.
Portia, who has been married to talk show host Ellen, 63, since 2008, began suffering from serious pain and was quickly rushed in for medical treatment, a source told PEOPLE.
The insider went on: “It was appendicitis and she had surgery.”
A rep for the pair has now said that the Ally McBeal star is home and "doing well" while being cared for by her wife.
The source added,"it was a scare at first, but all good now."
Appendicitis, while a common condition, can cause excruciating pain and can be fatal if not treated quickly.
Problems occur when the lining of the appendix is blocked and becomes inflamed.
Earlier this year it was revealed ratings for Ellen's show have slipped after she was accused of being "mean."
The longtime host received backlash in 2020 after numerous former employees called out her program for allowing a "toxic" work environment.
Ellen's "be kind" persona was questioned last summer after claims hit that the TV personality's show tolerated everything from bullying to racism to sexual harassment.
Warner Bros. investigated the allegations with many high up employees either forced to leave, or in some cases, even fired – three top producers were given the boot.
Ellen, who dealt with Covid in December 2020, gave a teary-eyed apology to her staff, and again mentioned the allegations on the season premiere of her program.
However, two former staff members exclusively told The Sun that workers believe Ellen’s "apology and denial that she knew anything was going on" regarding the alleged behind-the-scenes misconduct is “complete bull.”
The insiders said at the time: “For over a decade Ellen has treated her staff poorly, which is ironic because of her on-camera persona.
“She is literally like two different people. One is awful, power-hungry and constantly yells at everyone for any little that goes wrong with the production of the show.
“The other character that Ellen plays is what the world sees – a hilarious, kind and giving woman who is a fearless advocate for the LGBTQ community.”
