Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi’s home burglarized

God bless America.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s Montecito home was burglarized on the Fourth of July, according to local affiliate KEYT.

“High-value jewelry and watches” were reportedly the items taken from the home, which deputies said was targeted because of its status as a known home to celebrities.

Forensic technicians and detectives are apparently working the scene. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office also tells KEYT that they’re coordinating with other law enforcement agencies to ascertain if the Montecito burglary may be connected to other celebrity break-ins in the area.

The Sheriff’s Office doesn’t specify which burglaries they’re attempting to connect the recent break-ins to, but in October 2018, ABC News reported that string of celebrity homes in Los Angeles— including those of Alanis Morissette, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Emmy Rossum, Jaime Pressly, David Spade and Christina Milian — had been targeted by thieves. Yasiel Puig, of the Los Angeles Dodgers, fared the worst, with his Encino home getting hit four times by bandits.

Last year, a Beverly Hills realtor, Jason Emil Yaselli, was charged with a series of house thefts between 2016 and 2018 that targeted celebs including Usher, Adam Lambert and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” stars Paul and Dorit Kemsley.

DeGeneres, 62, the richest comedian in the world, lost some of the shine on her image earlier this year, with former staffers — and plenty of gawkers — flocking to a Twitter thread that branded her “one of the meanest people alive.”
