On Friday, a car crash left Anne Heche in critical condition, with Ellen DeGeneres sending well-wishes to her ex-girlfriend.
“I don’t want anyone to be hurt,” Ellen DeGeneres told photographers on Monday (per Daily Mail).
Ellen DeGeneres clarified that she is no longer “in touch” with Anne Heche, whom she dated from 1997 to 2000.
“I wouldn’t know [how she’s doing],” DeGeneres said.
The comedian’s comments mark the first time she has spoken about Anne since the Emmy nominee drove her blue Mini Cooper into a two-story LA home owned by Lynne Mishele last week.
Not only did the crash cause a fire that destroyed Mishele’s “entire lifetime of possessions,” but the former soap star’s rep told Page Six on Monday that Heche is in critical condition and fighting for her life.
“Shortly after the accident, Anne Heche became unconscious, slipping into a coma,” her spokesperson said. “She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention.”
Meanwhile, the (LAPD) Los Angeles Police Department has obtained a warrant to test the Anne Heche alum’s blood for alcohol and/or drugs.
“If found intoxicated, [Heche] could be charged with misdemeanor DUI hit and run,” a rep for the LAPD told us Monday, noting at the time that “no arrests have been made so far.”
According to TMZ, The investigation was later escalated to a felony DUI charge.
