The reason Ellen DeGeneres’ missed Dakota Johnson’s birthday exposed after awkward interview

I love Dakota Johnson, I also love Ellen DeGeneres, but what I love most on this glorious planet is any form of awkward social encounter.

The point of contention came from Ellen claiming that Dakota failed to send Ellen an invite to her 30th birthday party.

The actress was alluding to her appearance on the show from the previous fall, during which she dispelled rumors that her 29th birthday party was actually a gender reveal party (she's been dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for a few years now.), when DeGeneres called her out for attending her own star-studded bash without giving her an invitation to hers. "You were invited", Dakota insisted.

Ellen countered this by taking the ball to her show's executive producer Jonathan Norman, asking him, "I was invited? You knew I liked you", Ellen scrambled. DeGeneres responds, before Johnson shoots back, "Well, I didn't even know you liked me".

"Why didn't I go?"

"Well, who wouldn't want to be invited to a party?" "You knew I like you".

Intrepid Internet detectives pieced together that Johnson's birthday party in Malibu was Saturday, Oct. 5.

Actor John Cusack went as far as to accuse DeGeneres of "normalising mass murderers" through association with Mr Bush.

Back in October, many were shocked when photos surfaced of the 61-year-old looking chummy with the former President at a Dallas Cowboys game with their significant others Portia de Rossi and Laura Bush. "They thought, 'Why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?' Didn't even notice I'm holding the brand new iPhone 11", she said.

Ellen received widespread backlash - especially from the LGBTQ+ community - for her buddying up to the former president and even made an on-air statement regarding her friendship with Bush.

This was also the same National Football League match that saw Ellen seated beside George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush. In fact, I'm friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have. We're all different and I think that we've forgotten that's OK, that we're all different.

"Just because I don't agree with someone on everything doesn't mean that I'm not going to be friends with them".

"But I did invite you and you didn't come", Johnson replied. "I mean be kind to everyone", Ellen added.
