“Grey’s Anatomy” season 20 has ended after a drama-filled 10 episodes. Ultimately, Meredith Grey (played by Ellen Pompeo) resigns, worrying her fans about her future in the show.

There is ongoing speculation on the internet that “Ellen Pompeo is related to Mike Pompeo.”

How true is this? Well, according to our research, the two individuals don’t have any relation.

Since the actor and comedian do share the same surname, netizens may have been confused and felt there could be a connection.

Another significant factor is their birthplace.
