Ellen DeGeneres Mourns the Death of Anne Heche
Since her ex-girlfriend Anne Heche passed away on Friday at the age of 53, Ellen DeGeneres has been in grief.
“This is a sad day. I’m sending Anne’s children, family, and friends all of my love,” the talk show host tweeted just as news broke that Heche had died a week after suffering a severe brain injury when the Mini Cooper she was driving crashed into a residence in Mar Vista, Los Angeles.

Ellen DeGeneres Mourns Anne Heche’s Demise
DeGeneres and Heche began dating at the height of their respective careers in 1997. Heche had three hits in the same year (Volcano, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Wag the Dog), and DeGeneres’ sitcom Ellen was at its peak after the actor came out in the spring of that year.
In 1999, the couple made it public that they would get married if same-sex marriage were made legal in Vermont. Heche remarked at the time, “No one is keeping their fingers crossed more than us.”
Coleman “Coley” Laffoon, a videographer who had recently worked on DeGeneres’ comedy tour, was Heche’s public boyfriend after the couple’s 2000 breakup. She wed Laffoon in September of 2001, and they had their first child, Homer, in March of the following year. In 2005, Laffoon filed for divorce, and by the time it was formalized two years later, Heche was already romantically linked to her co-star in Men in Trees, James Tupper. Heche and Tupper had a son, Atlas, in 2009 but never tied the knot. They divorced the following year.

DeGeneres dated photographer Alexandra Hedison from 2000 through 2004 after breaking up with Heche. Portia de Rossi, whom she has been married to since 2008, was the woman she started dating in 2004.
On August 5, Heche was killed in an automobile accident that resulted in a fire that quickly spread to the house it had hit. For the fire to be put out, 59 firefighters were needed. In this case, the homeowner escaped harm. A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that Heche tested positive for the presence of drugs.
A public information officer informed that felony DUI charges were being looked at the day before Heche’s death. But we required more analysis to see if the medicines she was given during therapy influenced the outcomes.
