While a flurry of recent accusations by The Ellen DeGeneres Show staff members of a toxic work environment created severe backlash, the workplace doesn't seem to be the only area of Ellen's life harboring those conditions. An anonymous home cleaning staffer came out to The Daily Mail saying that she tormented house workers, running her house like a "military-style boot camp," claimed the newspaper.  

The former staffer claimed that the daytime host mistreated workers, tormenting them and firing them often. "She takes pleasure in firing people," they said. "My belief is that someone’s real personality comes out at home. So after everything that has been said about her at work, you can imagine how terrible Ellen is going to be at home when her guard is down. Sometimes she would yell at us but it was more about the incredibly condescending tone she would use. She treated you like you were nothing."

The source claimed that Ellen would "lay traps" for her houseworkers in order to make sure the space was absolutely clean. Even the smaller things like a salt shaker out of place could set her off, so they avoided contact with her as much as possible. It left them "always stressed out and on the verge of tears," they said. 

"She was going to torture you and you were just going to sit there and listen to it because you were being paid. Ellen was the worst person that I've ever met in my life," said the source. 

All allegations were denied by DeGeneres' representative. The rep stated that could not even confirm that the staffer was employed at any point by DeGeneres and stated that all claims are false.
