Ellen Degeneres

Comedienne Ellen Degeneres’ stalker was discovered by security at Ellen and wife Portia de Rossi’s mansion last month, after trying to make it into the house.

Karen Grace Sjoden (49) was given strict orders to stay away from the talk-show host and Portia after she was found on the grounds of the couple’s California home. She has been ordered to check in with the judge every 60 days and barred from any electronic or physical contact with Ellen and her associates.

An eyewitness has said that Karen appeared incoherent during her court appearance and then refused a mental-health evaluation. “Sjoden started rambling that, ‘I sent a letter to Ellen asking her for a job and I assumed she hired me.'”
