Ellen DeGeneres’ terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year got worse last month when her and Portia de Rossi’s $27 million Montecito mansion got robbed. Investigators are now saying that they believe the theft (which included expensive jewelry and watches) was an inside job. That makes it seem like Ellen dramatically staged it all for sympathy, or Portia is making her move to exit, but cops don’t believe that either of them had anything to do with it.
According to information obtained by The Sun, the details of the July 4 burglary, which was originally reported as being due to the “celebrity status” of the home, is now no longer being called a random attack. Page Six adds that a newsletter from the Montecito Association sent to local residents (which include Oprah and Ariana Grande) on Aug 12. quoted a local sheriff telling concerned citizens that the crime was an “inside job“.
Okay, first of all, I’m wondering what a regular write-up in the Montecito Association looks like? Whoever lives at the 29,000 square foot compound on the corner, could you finally take your Christmas lights down? They’re attracting poor people with cameras. Secondly, they let Ellen and Portia’s neighbors know not to throw suspicious eyes at them since they probably didn’t rob themselves.
“According to the report, It’s believed that expensive jewelry and watches were stolen from the home. DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi are not thought to have anything to do with the robbery.”
Mmhmmm. Nothing to do with the robbery…YET. Something tells me that the Montecito Association newsletter might be saving that juicy tidbit for the cover of their September issue.
Ellen who, let’s try not to EVER forget, is in the midst of a PR nightmare following the news that she’s probably a huge monster, has yet to comment on the inside-job claim. But well if police are now looking at people in Ellen’s life who feel scorned by her and want to get back at her, they’re going to be really, really busy with interviewing potential suspects. I mean, does Dakota Johnson have an alibi?!
