UPDATED 12/14/22 AT 12:30 PM ET: Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ wife, Allison Holker, confirmed his death in a statement shared with People. She said, “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us.”

She continued, “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.”

After requesting privacy for herself and her three children shared with Boss, Holker ended her statement with note to her late husband. “Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you,” she wrote.

Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, best known for his role on The Ellen Show, has died. He was 40.

TMZ reports that Boss’ wife, Allison Holker, reported suspicious behavior to the LAPD on Tuesday (Dec. 13) prior to his death. The outlet also reports that Boss died by suicide.

Per TMZ, Holker was concerned after Boss left their home with his car. They report that police later got a call about a shooting at a hotel in Los Angeles, and found Boss dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Boss was best known for being the DJ on Ellen Degeneres’ talk show from 2014 through 2022. During his time on the show, he also served as a host and executive producer.

The celebrity DJ will also be remembered for his appearances on So You Think You Can Dance. Boss competed on the reality show in 2008 and won the runner-up title. Over the years, he returned to the show numerous times to compete in all-star competitions and most recently, judge alongside JoJo Siwa and Leah Remini.

Known for his hip-hop choreography, Boss made appearances in the popular dance films Hairspray, Step Up: Revolution and Magic Mike XXL.

From 2018 to 2020, Boss and Holker hosted the Disney+ documentary series Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings

Earlier this year, Boss reflected on his time spent on The Ellen Show, which concluded after 19 seasons. He told E! News about his close friendship with DeGeneres, saying the two had a bunch of “inside jokes” and they “just laugh and laugh and laugh.”

He also shared his appreciation for the show’s ability to highlight a variety of different talents. “I really hope that we will see a lot more places, whether it be in talk show form or what, shining a light on ordinary people doing incredible things for people in order to help them because it’s bigger than us,” he said.

Boss is survived by his wife and three children.
