The renowned DJ on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, has passed away, and TMZ has discovered that it appears to be a suicide.
According to law enforcement officials, Allison Holker, Stephen’s wife, came into an LAPD station on Tuesday in a hysterical state because she claimed that Stephen had left the house without his car, which was uncharacteristic of him.
Shortly after that, at around 11:15 AM, paramedics were called to a medical emergency at a hotel in Los Angeles, where they discovered Stephen dead from what seemed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. At the scene, he was identified as deceased.
Holker said to TMZ, “Stephen brought light into every space he entered. Above all else, he treasured his family, friends, and community. He believed that the best way to lead was to lead with love and light.”
She continues to add that tWitch was the “backbone of our family, the best husband and father and and inspiration to his fans.”
In conclusion she stated “Stephen we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
He got his break on the Ellen Show in 2014 and remained with her till the show’s finale in May of 2022. He also became an executive producer on the show in 2020. His original rise to fame was in 2008 on the show “So You Think You Can Dance” where he placed 2nd overall.
Stephen met his wife Allison on the All Star season of ‘SYTYCD’ where they were both competitors. They tied the knot in 2013 and celebrated their 9-year anniversary this past Saturday.
They couple share 3 kids. Stephen was 40 years old.
