Ellen DeGeneres has opened up about her ex-partner's tragic accident.

The TV personality previously dated Anne Heche from 1997 to 2000.

The actress was involved in a terrible car crash on August 5.

Following the accident, DeGeneres revealed she no longer spoke to Heche.

However, the former TV host had kind words for her hospitalized ex-lover.

Heche crashed her car into the home of a woman named Lynne Mishele.

The homeowner survived the crash but Heche suffered severe injuries.

The "Spread" actress previously recalled her iconic relationship with DeGeneres.

According to Heche, her career suffered because of gay prejudice.
