Ellen has been under fire for months, beginning in March when comedian Kevin T. Porter tweeted about her apparent reputation "one of the meanest people alive" and asked others to share the worst Ellen stories they'd ever heard.

An Ellen DeGeneres Show executive producer is setting the record straight on rumors surrounding the future of the longtime series.

Numerous former staffers who made the accusations to Buzzfeed News in recent weeks have claimed that the office culture was emotionally abusive.

Earlier, YouTube sensation NikkieTutorials aka Nikkie de Jager had also narrated her unpleasant experience of the time she made her appearance on The Ellen Show. They added, "For the record, the day to day responsibility of the Ellen show is completely on us".

Neither Garrett nor Thompson have accused Ellen DeGeneres of sexual misconduct.

While DeGeneres has made no public move to step down from her pedestal as the queen of daytime television, DailyMail is reporting that the star is in talks with top executives to back away completely. "Clearly some didn't", she said.

But things might be coming to an end for DeGeneres's long-running show.

The article accused Leman of making sexual advances on a former worker at an office party, including facing allegations that he grabbed a production assistant's penis and groped another PA in a vehicle in addition to making inappropriate comments at the office. "Know more than one who were treated horribly by her. Common knowledge".

The outlet reported that James "could be the shock victor after dozens of employees accused the Ellen of turning a blind eye to racism, bullying and sexual harassment on her hit daytime show", and according to their alleged inside sources, James has been seen as a "long term successor" for a while.

"I'm also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop", she added.

The Sun reported this week that Mr. Corden was "in line" to replace Ellen on her show.

"Staffers are texting and calling each other freaking out as they fear Ellen [DeGeneres] will quit or that the show will be cancelled", they said.

"Replacing Ellen was always going to be a tough challenge, but he is a natural fit and easy transition", the TV insider told The Sun.
