Stephen “tWitch” Boss, known as the DJ on “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” has died. He was 40.
According to TMZ, the DJ died by suicide.
Boss’ wife Allison Holker reportedly ran into an LAPD station frantic saying he had left home without his car, which she claimed was unlike him, according to law enforcement sources.
Police later got a call about a shooting at an LA hotel, where they found Boss with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Boss is survived by his wife and their three children, Weslie, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3.
Boss got his big break in showbiz in 2008, when he was runner-up on “So You Think Can Dance.”
He went on to do some acting, landing several roles where he could show off his dance skills. Stephen played Jason in the ‘Step Up’ movie franchise, and he was also in “Magic Mike XXL.”
Boss began working as a DJ on DeGeneres’ talk show in 2014, eventually becoming an executive producer in 2020. He stayed with her until the ending of the show in 2022.
