R.I.P. Stephen “tWitch” Boss. DJ, Host And Producer Dead At Age 40.By The DivaGals | December 14, 2022 | Entertainment
It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the death of one of our favorite performers. Stephen “tWitch” Boss, choreographer, DJ and the former co-host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show has died. He was 40.
According to reports from Los Angeles, Boss died Tuesday at a hotel of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His widow, fellow dancer Allison Holker, shared a statement about his death with People magazine.
“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us,” she said. “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.
“To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt,” her statement continued. “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.
“Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
Our fearless EIC Delaina Dixon had the pleasure of meeting the couple in 2018. “He was the nicest guy and so warm and funny when we met,” she shares. “I am so saddened to hear of the family’s loss.”
