Do You Believe the Ellen DeGeneres Diva Demands and Trouble on American Idol Rumours?

Ellen DeGeneres is apparently doing good things for American Idol's ratings this season, but there are already rumours of trouble behind the scenes. This week's top 12 men and top 12 women performances didn't exactly blow us out of the water, either. Now, there are stories that Ellen is feuding with Simon Cowell and InTouch Weekly claims that her backstage list of "diva demands" is getting out of control. According to the magazine, Ellen requested a Mercedes as a signing bonus and insisted girlfriend Portia de Rossi be a guest judge among other things. Ellen has a great reputation, but there's always lots of drama at American Idol. So tell us, do you believe the rumours of diva behavior and trouble from Ellen on AI?

Love her to death-her stand up, that is (never really had to opportunity to watch much of her talk show and I HATE Idol...sorry Idol fans ;] ), but this isn't the first time Ive read about her possibly having a bitchy side...which sucks.

american idol needed someone to liven up that show, she provides humor which is exactly what it needed! instead of laughing at paula's craziness now we can actually laugh with someone.

Unfortunately I know she has been slightly diva-ish, I work in media and I know for a fact that some of the rumors are true!

I love Ellen but she's not right for AI. I don't believe she's making these demands, but I do believe some of the rumors that there's some friction between her and Simon. I think Simon is over the show. He seems extra cranky so far and his body language speaks volumes...especially when Ellen is speaking.

I don't believe she is being a diva behind the scenes. However, I'm not liking her on the show. She adds nothing, her comments to the contestants show how much she doesn't know about singing. This is a singing competition get a judge in the business next time. Still love Ellen on her own show though.
