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

Ellen DeGeneres is apparently doing good things for American Idol's ratings this season, but there are already rumors 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 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 rumors of diva behavior and trouble from Ellen on AI?

I can see her being a diva but a Mercedes, really?? She could buy 20 of them and see no dip in her bank account. I could see her wanting Portia on AI though.

LOVE ED...but come on...she has perks. She had demands put into her contracts. This is Hollywood, peeps.

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.
