Ellen Pompeo Hesitant to Marry Longtime Beau

by at . Comments

According to iVillage.com, a subsidiary of the venerable National Enquirer, there's a reason why actress Ellen Pompeo hasn't wed longtime boyfriend Chris Ivery.

His criminal past.

Sources close to the 36-year old actress, who plays Dr. Meredith Grey on the hit ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy, say she is proceeding with caution when it comes to marriage. Ivery, 38, served 14 months in prison for postal theft and credit card fraud after a 1994 conviction.

While Ivery's past wasn't that important when she was struggling to pay the bills as a waitress, Pompeo may be more concerned with her image now that she's become one of TV's top stars. As she thinks about the future, Ivery may not be as big a part of it as once thought.

"Ellen loves Christopher to death but she can't help feeling that there may be someone else out there better suited for her," a pal told The Enquirer. "She's had a few of her co-stars try to set her up on dates with some well-known bachelors. Ellen declined the offers for now, but she's having second thoughts."

Pompeo and Ivery, a music producer, live together in the Los Angeles area, so things don't appear to be crumbling between them at this point. But if these reports are to be believed, stay tuned. There could be a new hot commodity on the L.A. single scene before long.

I see that an old friend of Chris Ivery and myself Michael Ohalleran responded back on april 12th. His description of Chris is accurate but I,m just wonderiing who the loud mouth jerk named Malden Boy is who posted back on August 29th, and if he was from malden back when Chris was capped by saunders back in 1987 then he sure knows who I am. I'm around Malden still so if you just step up any time instead of hiding behind the name of Malden Boy we can handle business.


Chilip, If you know Chris ?? Let him reply...


I have known Chris for many years myself, I went to school with him and graduated with him, We all made mistakes and he is doing the right thing, so why don't all you jealous haters out there just leave him alone. PS - It was Chris that gave me this nickname 20+ years ago Go for it Chris... Way to go - Mood says what up!!


Most scientist (including me) have proven that the black race is about 2 million to 10 million years behind. This meaning if I could go back in time say 5 - 6 million years and bring back a baby it would have you can say the brain power of a modern day black. Think where would the black race today be if the white man never interfered with them. The black race will NEVER catch up with the white race. Not now or a million years.


Racists are idiots!


I am totally disgusted at the words and thoughts I've read on this site. Do you seriously think we can progress with idiots like you walking around on earth. I suggest you reveal yourselves instead of hiding behind a website. Your veiws are repulsive and downright offensive to all people across the world. You are complete trash for speaking the way you are about another human beings and I hope karma grabs you and makes examples of you all! Ellen Pompeo's personal life should not be scrutinized like this. Who are you to judge the person someone else involves themselves with? Come on people, get a life! Get a life of your own and stop tearing apart their relationship. This is a major reason why Hollywood marriages cannot work. Because judgement is left up to those who don't want to see anyone together to begin with. Learn to love yourselves and stay out of other people's lives.


Well, apparently these white women are going to these N*ggers for a reason. Clearly your pencil d*cks arent getting the job done - LOL!!!


Another hot white woman involved with human garbage


I think this coupling puts Ellen in league with Brittany and Lyndsay Lohan ...... "Ivery, 38, served 14 months in prison for postal theft and credit card fraud after a 1994 conviction"........ she must have insecurity issues.....


I can't beleive some of you people, especially the pastor, I would be so ashamed if I was you because you don't have a decent bone in your body. Chris had a little trouble when he was younger, much younger long before he met her and you people talk about mixing races, Chris is half white and his mother was jewish so he grew up living with mostly white people as is most of his friends are white. You jerks also don't know what you are talking about but if you saw him face to face you would see how handsome he is and Ellen being so small makes him look a lot bigger than he is. Love will keep them together and they will marry and maybe have kids which is their business alone and if you people can't say anything positive then shut the F--k up and get a life so you don't have to be such losers.
