Ellen DeGeneres just paid tribute to her friend, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, writing, “I’m heartbroken. tWitch was pure love and light. He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart. I will miss him. Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children – Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.”
Stephen “tWitch” Boss, the famed DJ on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, is dead … and TMZ has learned it appears to be a suicide.
Law enforcement sources tell us Stephen’s wife Allison Holker ran into an LAPD station Tuesday, and she was frantic because she said Stephen had left home without his car — something that was not like him at all.
We’re told, a short time later around 11:15 AM paramedics got a call for a medical emergency at an L.A. hotel and they found Stephen there, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Holker tells TMZ, “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.”
She continues, “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. I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honour his memory.”
