Stephen 'tWitch' Boss, DJ For 'Ellen DeGeneres Show', Dead at 40 By Suicide!

Written by: Khalif Thompson

This morning at VHip Hop News, we tragically report that county officials confirm that the 40-year-old professional dancer passed away from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in a statement to PEOPLE. He passed away on Tuesday in a hotel in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Encino.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner has determined that Stephen "tWitch" Boss's cause of death was suicide.

According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner, the case is officially over.

Allison Holker Boss, a former contestant on So You Think You Can Dance, also the late star's wife, spoke to our close sources on Wednesday about her husband's passing.

Allison, 34, revealed,"It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us. 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."

It would be an understatement to say that he left a legacy, and his positive impact will continue to be felt, she added. "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."

Allison ended her post by writing, "Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you," as a message to her husband.

Boss is survived by Allison and his children Zaia, 3, Maddox, 6, and Weslie, 14.


In response to the heartbreaking news, Ellen DeGeneres posted a touching message and a picture of the pair hugging.
