On Thursday, Ellen DeGeneres paid tribute to her father Elliott, who died at the age of 92.
On the “Ellen Show,” DeGeneres said, “In addition to what’s going on in Monetico, I lost my dad this week. He was 92 years old. He had a good, long life. And he lived his life exactly how he wanted. He was Christian Science his entire life. He never had medicine his whole life. He never went to a doctor. We never had a vaccination. We never had medicine growing up and he lived to be 92.”
“He was very proud of me. He loved this show. He was a kind man, very accepting man,” Ellen continued. “There was not one bone of judgment in his body. He was very funny… Before he passed away, I got to talk to him, so I got to say goodbye to him.”
Ellen also shared a photo of a rainbow above the Warner Bros. building where "The Ellen DeGeneres Show” shoots, revealing, “I was leaving the building, and I looked back and there was a rainbow over the Warner Bros. studio. This looks Photoshopped. This is what I saw after I talked to my dad and he died 10 minutes later after that. Pretty amazing… I got a rainbow before he died.”
