Gay Splitsville

anne heche ellen

Out Magazine profiles the top ten gay celebrity break-ups because, you know, why should Nick and Jessica get all the fun. Martina and Judy, Dolce and Gabbana, Melissa and Julie – they’re all there. But who made number one? Just ask Celestia:

Ellen DeGeneres and Anne Heche: When Ellen came out in 1997, it was with a roar that included her character coming out on her self-titled sitcom, a Time magazine cover, and a wonderfully public relationship with Heche. Both became outspoken activists, earning heaps of praise from the community and opening a lot of minds in the process. The couple went their separate ways in 2000. Ellen is now happily involved with actress Portia de Rossi, and Anne is married to cameraman Coley Laffoon.

Our only question: Don’t Renee and Kenny and Tom and Nicole count as gay splits? No? Oh, sorry, whatever were we thinking? Renee isn’t gay.
