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 feel so very sorry for you Americans. Why don`t you just live your lives and let these people who you have never even met live theirs. All these nasty comments!! Do they make you feel better? Are you happier people?


what the hell are u people taliking about ellen is gorgeous and so what if her fiance is not wonderful but they are made for each other and whoever said ellen was ugly i would like to see what u look like then!!!!!!!


okay so i have been reading through these and i got to say: some of the things you people are saying are just down right hilarious. i mean how do you think of such horrible things. like the one with the dick and her crotch. i mean what kind of mind do you have to think of things like that. as for Ellen and Christopher-------i agree with what that one person said about her letting her fans down-but only because all of her fans expected her to be with someone like mcdreamy!! [but lets face it, no one can be that lucky! except maybe his wife but that isn't the point] i think we should let them live their life and make their own decisions whether they be good or bad. and i am not white,black,hispanic, asian i am purple! its simply easier that way.


Sure, sarah, affirmative action b a wunerfall thing, 4 sho!!!


Valarie, You are one stupid, nappy headed ho! Race does indeed exist, but I gather that your affirmative action pea brain can't comprehend that fact. As for fleeing to Europe, you may want to rethink that. The Europeans are getting sick of non-White vermin and you just might end up in a zoo. :)


#1: Race does not exist biologically. Please, take an anthropology class. If you're white, you might have more genes in common with a "black" person, than another white person, especially if you are unrelated to him/her. #2: statistics, crime...hmm. Please do not let me remind you that if you are in America and of European ancestry, England didn't want you because your ancestors were criminals/scum, you were fleeing famine, or you were dirt poor and illiterate. Point a finger, and five come to point back to you: that goes for all. #3: I'm of African ancestry and I go to the best college in the US & I have an IQ that puts me in the 99% of the world, so basically, perhaps I am too inteligent to argue with 99% of you. I also, definitely plan on moving to France. There is too much ignorance in America. Europe has ALWAYS been much more progressive in art, history, music, philosophy, science (yes, Pasteur, Curie) the list goes on.


And another thing, what makes you think you aren't one of those scumbags?


Well then I guess it follows, if blacks are animals that must make you a rodent. Clearly you don't have use of higher brain function. But the good news is the small minded people are being pushed to the side. Those who can't think with open minds in a world that is becoming more global socially and financially, are being quickly left behind. Hopefully you don't cripple any children you may have with your diseased reasoning. Put that in your Yahweh.


Of course there are White people who are scumbags, but that isn't the point. Blacks are animals and race mixing is nothing more that filthy, satanic beastiality. Prasise Yahweh!!!


I agree with DJ.
Okay, so you all feel obliged to leave a message hating on Ivery and Pompeo. How about you just go outside and see the actual percentage of people with shady pasts who are white? I think you'll find it's just as bad as those who are black. So before you start being racist, why not just think to yourself 'Hey, why don't I think about other peoples feelings before I open my mouth?'
If he was white, would you be so judgmental?
