Wearing her signature shirt and blazer, Ellen‘s new look was reminiscent of a past look worn by wife Portia de Rossi.

Her decision to debut the new style came as she continues the new season of her show amid accusations of fostering a “toxic workplace.”

After months of reports, one source recently told The Sun that there was nothing “kind” about working on Ellen over a period stretching several years.

The insider also shared that they are worried that staff, who enabled a “toxic environment” to flourish, have remained on the show.

The source told The Sun exclusively: “It was never a ‘kind’ place. Ellen’s ‘be kind’ philosophy was never mentioned to us when we were working.

“I’m speaking out because I’m worried the people who enabled that ‘toxic environment’ to happen have got away with it and they’re still working there.”

The new claims follow a slew of allegations over the summer including how staffers on the show experienced “racism, fear and intimidation”.

Ellen has since said “sorry” to those affected and promised changes will be made.

An investigation by parent company WarnerMedia into the claims which included speaking to current and former staffers has also reportedly been carried out.

The show then faced additional accusations about sexual misconduct in a second BuzzFeed story on July 30, in which dozens of men and women accused Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman and Jonathan Norman of sexual harassment, misconduct or assault.

Season 18 of the show began on September 21 with a virtual audience instead of a physical audience.

In her opening monologue, Ellen said: “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show.

She added: “I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. 

“We have had a lot of conversations over the last few weeks about the show, our workplace, and what we want for the future.

“We have made the necessary changes and today we are starting a new chapter.”
