Ellen DeGeneres said she drank three “weed drinks” and took several melatonin supplements right before she had to take her wife, Portia de Rossi, to the hospital for emergency surgery back in March.
DeGeneres opened up about the night of de Rossi’s emergency appendectomy (the surgery required to remove the appendix when it becomes inflamed or infected resulting in appendicitis) during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday.
DeGeneres told Kimmel that she drank the weed-infused drinks, which were a gift from comedian Chelsea Handler, after de Rossi went to bed early.
“I drank one and I didn’t feel anything. So, I drank three,” DeGeneres told Kimmel about the beverage. “And then I took two melatonin sleep pills.”
