Comedian Ellen DeGeneres is said to be living with former Ally McBeal star Portia de Rossi in the Hollywood Hills after splitting up with their respective female partners.

According to the New York Post, De Rossi dumped her long-time girlfriend, Francesca Gregorini, who is Ringo Starr’s stepdaughter, and DeGeneres split from photographer Alexandra Hedison (pictured) so they could move in together.

The report says the two women first met on a photo shoot nine months ago and have been smitten ever since. DeGeneres made headlines a few years ago when she shared the first ever prime time lesbian kiss in her American sitcom.
