Ellen was reportedly approached by a photographer earlier this week and asked questions about Anne’s condition. She said, “We’re not in touch with each other, so I wouldn’t know. I don’t want anyone to be hurt.”

Back in 2020, Anne talked about their relationship and how it changed things in the world. She shared, “Our time was a beautiful part of my life and one that I wear with honor. I was a part of a revolution that created social change, and I could not have done that without falling in love with her.”

After they broke up, Anne went on to marry Coleman Laffoon and they had one son together. After they divorced, she married James Tupper. They also had a son together. Her son Homer Laffoon said, “My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully, my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom.”
