The renowned DJ on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, has passed away, and 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 goes on, “He served as the foundation of our family, was the best husband and father, and served as an example to his followers. It would be an understatement to say he left a legacy, and his beneficial influence will endure. There won’t be a day that goes by that we don’t remember him, I’m positive of that.”
“Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you,” the speaker said in closing.
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 program.
When he finished second on “So You Think Can Dance” in 2008, he actually earned his big break in the entertainment industry.
He continued performing and was cast in a number of roles that allowed him to showcase his dance abilities. Stephen starred as Jason in the “Step Up” film series and in “Magic Mike XXL.”
He 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.
The Real Dirty Dancing, which aired on FOX earlier this year, was one of the reality shows Stephen hosted. He also co-hosted “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” on Disney+ with Allison.
According to a statement from Dick Clark Productions, 19 Entertainment, and FOX Entertainment, “We will always cherish the happiness and brightness that Stephen “tWitch” Boss brought into our lives and the hearts of so many people. We weep with his family, loved ones, and fans over this awful, painful loss of such a radiant, unique talent and cherished friend. “tWitch,” we shall miss you sincerely.
On the SYTYCD all-star season, tWitch and Allison became friends “— they both engaged in competition — and they wed in 2013. This past Saturday marked the ninth anniversary of Allison and Stephen’s union.
They have 3 children. Stephen was 40 years old.
