Ellen DeGeneres confirmed the sad news that her father passed away this week, age 92. 

Elliott Degeneres died in hospital this week, and Ellen paid tribute to him on her chat show yesterday afternoon. 

'I lost my Dad this week. He was 92 years old. He had a good, long life.'

Ellen added 'It wasn't unexpected. I was able to say goodbye. When I was a kid, my dad took us on one vacation to Warner Bros. Studios. He loved this business. He loved that I was in it. When he died, I saw this rainbow over the stage they named for me.'

Ellen revealed that when she went to say goodbye to him, as she was leaving, 10 minutes after he passed away, a rainbow appeared over her studio in the Warner Bros lot.

Ellen also paid tribute to her father on Instagram, with a photo. 


My dad and me. ❤️
