Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's Home Burglarized”

Check out what's clicking today in entertainment.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's 4th of July break-in was even more intense after it was revealed the celebrity couple were at home when the crime was being committed.

Per TMZ, citing sources, DeGeneres, 62, and de Rossi, 47, were at their Montecito, Calif. mansion on July 4 when the break-in occurred.

It wasn't immediately clear if either Ellen or Portia were at home at the time of the burglary, though thankfully there are no reports of any injuries or altercations stemming from the unfortunate incident.

Back in October 2018, a number of burglaries at celebrity homes were reported including big names like Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Alanis Morissette and David Spade.

They're not taking any chances in the aftermath, though, and they've since hired a new security firm, while installing new laser sensor systems and cameras around the home's perimeter.

On Thursday, the Santa Barbara County Sherriff's Office confirmed the news in a press release.

The Montecito, California mansion Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi call home has been robbed, according to multiple reports. "The exact description of the items that were taken is not available for release, but they are described as high-value jewelry and watches".

According to law enforcement, forensic technicians are "conducting an extensive and ongoing investigation".

There have also been several reports of former employees of her show coming forward to claim that she fosters a toxic working environment.

News of the burglary comes a week after DeGeneres and de Rossi mourned the loss of their beloved dog, Wolf.

E! News has reached out to Ellen and Portia's reps for comment, but have yet to hear back.
