Stephen “tWitch” Boss, Dancer & Beloved DJ On The Ellen Show, Has Died Aged 40

Stephen “tWitch” Boss, AKA the beloved DJ and all-around vibe curator on The Ellen Show, has died by suicide at 40.

The TV star’s wife Allison Holker Boss confirmed the news to People magazine, saying he was “the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans”.

Boss became an integral part of Ellen DeGeneres’ US talk show from 2014, until it finished earlier this year.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to the BBC that its West Valley Division officers responded to an “ambulance death investigation” radio call at a motel on Ventura Boulevard on Tuesday.

Ellen DeGeneres said she was “heartbroken” by the news via Twitter.

She described Boss as “pure love and light”.

“He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart,” she wrote. “I will miss him.”

RIP to a real one.
