Stephen Boss Cause Of Death
Stephen “Twitch” Boss, the beloved dancer and resident DJ on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has died, his wife confirmed in a statement to E! News. He was 40 years old.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that police discovered Boss’ body in a Los Angeles hotel room after his wife, Allison Holker, frantically reported that he had left home without his car, which was unlike him.
It appears he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Boss began deejaying on the “Ellen” show in 2014 and stayed on the series until its end in 2022. Ellen DeGeneres made him an executive producer on the show in 2020.
His showbiz career began in 2008 when he placed as a runner-up on “So You Think You Can Dance.” After securing his “Ellen” role, Boss began hosting events and also appeared in “Magic Mike XXL.”
The famed dancer married Holker on Dec. 10, 2013. They celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary just days before his death.
“It’s our 9th anniversary!! I couldn’t be more grateful to celebrate this perfect magical day!!! Saying YES to @sir_twitch_alot has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life!!” Holker wrote on Instagram last Saturday.
“I feel so blessed and loved!!” She continued. “I love you, baby, and I will never take you or OUR love for granted!” I adore you #happyanniversary#bosswedding2013.”
Boss is survived by Holker, 34, and their three children, Weslie, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3.
