Anne Heche, the famous ex-girlfriend of TV host and popular celebrity interviewer Ellen Degeneres, is still in the news even though the pair has long separated. Following their separation, Heche stirred quite a controversy after she parked her SUV along a central California highway and wandered up to a stranger’s home.
Married to Coleman Laffoon, a cameraman, after the separation, the actress, director, and screenwriter who performed a dual role in the daytime soap opera Another World (1987–91), became a mother of a son soon after. But their marriage only lasted a little more than 6 years, until Coleman filed for divorce on February 2, 2007.
Anne and Ellen began dating in 1997. Given the paucity of openly gay relationships back then, the couple gained a lot of media attention.

The couple broke up in 2000, stating that things didn’t work out between them.
‘It is an amicable parting, and we greatly value the 3 1/2 years we have spent together. We hope everyone will respect our privacy through this difficult time.'
Anne married Coleman Laffoon on 1 September 2001. Coleman was a cameraman whom she met on Ellen’s stand-up comedy show in 2000.

On 2 March 2002, Anne and Coleman welcomed a son named Homer. But by 2007 things were quite bad between the couple and following Coleman's divorce filing, the duo got embroiled in a lengthy custody battle. Coleman revealed in custody papers that Anne was an unfit parent as she showed bizarre and delusional behaviors towards her son. Coleman won the custody battle and the divorce got finalized on 4 March 2009.
It was said that the reason for the couple's divorce was Anne’s increasing fondness for her Men in Trees co-star James Tupper. Anne and James started living together in August 2007. On December 5, 2008, news about Anne’s pregnancy came out. And on March 7, 2009, the actress gave birth to their son Atlas Heche Tupper.
Although Anne and James never tied the knot, they have been living together for more than a decade now. Their relationship seems to be going strong without any breakup rumor.
