Rosie O’Donnell granted an interview to USA Today on Tuesday in which she confirmed that she and her partner of five years, Kelli Carpenter, have been having issues at home.
“Kelli and I love each other very much and we are working on the issues,” Rosie said during the interview at her Nyack, N.Y. home. Kelli was not present during the interview.
Rosie did not address rumors that Kelli has moved out and taken an apartment in New York City.
“We’re a family. We will remain a family forever. And we are working on our issues,” Rosie said.
The couple, who married in San Francisco in 2004, have four children: Parker, 14, Chelsea, 12 and Blake, 9, are all adopted; while Kelli carried Vivienne, 6.
“They’re adorable and wonderful and they are by far a priority,” Rosie said of the children. “Everything’s fine and everybody’s good and we’re still both raising them together. We will both continue to parent them and we’re friendly and everything’s all right.” (People)
