Ellen Degeneres was photographed having lunch with his wife, porcia de rossi, in Montecitio, California, on August 24. The women were seen leaving the restaurant, with Portia placing a protective arm around Ellen’s shoulder amid the flashing lights of the paparazzi. This was the first time Ellen had been seen in public since the death of her ex-girlfriend, Ana Hecheon August 11.

Anne was involved in a car accident when the vehicle she was driving crashed into a house on August 5. She was alert and was seen talking to paramedics after the accident, but she eventually lost consciousness. A few days later, she was confirmed to be in a coma and in “critical condition”. By August 11, Anne was declared brain dead, which is legally dead in California. However, she was kept alive through life support so that her organs could be donated. The recipients were found on August 14 and she was officially taken off life support.

Authorities revealed that Anne had drugs in her system at the time of the accident. However, it has yet to be confirmed if the drugs were ingested before the accident or if they were given to Anne when she was in hospital. A more conclusive drug test is being conducted to obtain more information. Once the test is complete, officials will be able to publicly confirm what substances were found in Anne’s system.

Anne and Ellen dated from 1997 to 2000. Although they were no longer in contact at the time of Anne’s death, Ellen said she was devastated for her ex’s loved ones during this difficult time. “This is a sad day,” she tweeted herself. “I am sending Anne’s children, family and friends all my love.” Before Anne succumbed to her injuries, Ellen also told the photographers, “I don’t want anyone to get hurt.”
