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 the coroner’s report from the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner that HollywoodLife was able to get, Stephen “tWitch” Boss‘s cause of death was officially determined to be a “gunshot wound to the head.”
What Stephen’s Wife Stated
“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share that my husband Stephen has left us,” Boss’ wife, Allison Holker Boss, 34, confirms exclusively in a statement to PEOPLE.
"Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans."
"I am certain there won't be a day that goes by that we won't honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children. To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt."
Allison concluded by leaving her spouse with a heart-touching message. “Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
How’s The Dead Scene
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.
How Stephen’s Ellen Show Journey
Stephen began spinning records on Ellen’s show in 2014 and continued doing so until the show’s cancellation in May 2022. In 2020, he was appointed executive producer of the programme. When he finished second on “So You Think Can Dance” in 2008, he actually earned his big break in the entertainment industry.
Ellen DeGeneres Paid Tribute To Stephen
Boss collaborated closely with Ellen DeGeneres from 2014 until 2022 on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and she expressed her “heartbreak” on his passing. The 64-year-old talk show presenter posted on social media.
“tWitch was pure love and light. He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart. I will miss him.”
Stephen Boss & Allison Holker Boss Life Journey
In 2013, Boss wed Allison Holker. The couple’s children at the time of the podcast interview were son Maddox, now 6, and daughter Weslie, aged 14. Later, they welcomed Zaia, who is now 3 years old.
The professional dancer also revealed to host Aubrey Marcus during the interview that he had “fell in love” with the notion that getting back up after adversity “doesn’t have to be romantic.”
Stephen spoke to us about life after “Ellen” and seemed genuinely delighted to spend more time with his family the last time our photographers were able to catch him out and about in Los Angeles, which was back in September.
