E-Mails Detail Ellen & Portia's Iggy Saga
De Rossi writes about the "heartbreaking" feud with Mutts & Moms
The correspondence, posted on the Smoking Gun, reveals the couple’s initial love for dog, their decision to give him away, and the shock expressed by pet-rescue agency Mutts & Moms at that development.
A partner at Mutts & Moms, Marina Baktis, tells the couple that Iggy’s relocation constitutes “a betrayal of our trust” and a violation of the contract, to which de Rossi replies, “Your email is truly heartbreaking to many people.”
There is also one e-mail from DeGeneres’s hair stylist, Cheryl, who pleads that after two weeks, Iggy is “bonded and loved by our family.” Unmoved, Baktis insists he must be returned.
A rep for DeGeneres had no comment on the e-mails.
