Ellen DeGeneres’ wife Portia de Rossi takes horseback riding lesson after host tearfully apologizes for ‘toxic’ set

ELLEN DeGeneres' wife Portia de Rossi was seen taking a horseback riding lesson following the host's "teary-eyed" apology for a "toxic" workplace.

Portia looked like she was having quite the time as she sat confidently on a horse in Santa Barbara.

The actress wore a black top with white pants as she matched it with gloves and a pair of boots.

Portia, 47, also sported a helmet for protection and some sunglasses as it seemed she followed the guidance of an instructor that rode alongside her.

The outing comes after Ellen, 62, gathered her show's employees to apologize for all that has occurred these last couple of months.

An insider exclusively told The Sun Online that the comedian became "emotional" during the virtual meeting that included about 200 employees.

The source added that Ellen had been "waiting to speak to her team this whole time" but was "not allowed because of the investigation."

Warner Bros. is currently investigating the "toxic" workplace allegations at The Ellen DeGeneres Show after numerous former employees accused the program of tolerating everything from bullying to racism to sexual harassment.

The insider revealed that during that same meeting additional perks were offered to staff.

The important meeting came after changes were made on staff as executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman were fired.

Ellen was recently spotted leaving a restaurant with a friend and was asked by waiting media for her thoughts on the terminations.

"I will be talking to my fans," Ellen said and was reported in the Daily Mail.

Portia and other famous faces have defended the comic as the allegations have poured in.

Kevin Hart was quick to stand by Ellen's side as he took to Instagram and said: "It’s crazy to see my friend go through what she’s going through publicly.

"I have known Ellen for years and I can honestly say that she’s one of the dopest people on the f**king planet. She has treated my family and my team with love and respect from day one."

The pair were later seen embracing one another while at lunch at a luxury Montecito, CA resort.
