Ellen DeGeneres responds to the loss of Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss: ‘I’m heartbroken,’ she says.

Stephen “tWitch” Boss, who was the DJ on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show for nine years, has died.

As per his wife, Boss died at the age of 40. According to a spokesman for Boss, he committed suicide.

“I’m heartbroken,” DeGeneres captioned a photo of the couple cuddling on Instagram. “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.”

Nobody made him smile like he did, Andy Lassner, former executive producer of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” said in the comments, accompanied by a heart emoji.

The studio behind the show, Warner Bros. Television Group, also published a statement that they are horrified and saddened by the unfortunate death of Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss. tWitch was a multifaceted talent who was an important member of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and the Warner Bros. Television Group family. Every day, he was able to bring groups of individuals together to enjoy joy and laughter. Above all, he was a cherished buddy, spouse, and parent. Their heartfelt thoughts and sympathy go out to his family, friends, and fans.

In 2014, the professional dancer and television personality joined “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” as a DJ and will become an executive producer in 2020. In May, the famous daytime discussion program ended its 19-year run.

Boss had two kids with his wife, “Dancing with the Stars” pro Allison Holker: Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3. He also adopted Holker’s former relationship’s daughter, Weslie.

Holker issued a statement about her husband’s death on December 14.

It is with heavy hearts that she informs all that her husband Stephen has left them, she stated. Stephen brightened every place he entered. Above all, he treasured family, friends, and community, and guiding with love and light was all to him.

He was their family’s rock, the finest husband and father, and an example to his admirers. To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his good influence will live on. She is confident that there will never be a day when they do not remember him. They need privacy during this tough time for her and their three kids. They adore Stephen, and she will always save the last dance for him.

Boss and Holker also co-hosted “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” on Disney+. He also danced and served as a judge on numerous seasons of the competition show “So You Think You Can Dance. He was most recognized for his energetic appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

He talked about his experience on the show ahead of the last episode in May.

With the end of DeGeneres’ program, Boss returned to “So You Think You Can Dance,” where he originally met DeGeneres when they danced together in the sixth season of the show.

Boss, who was dubbed “tWitch” as a teen for his frantic dancing skills, also starred as a dancer in three “Step Up” films, as well as “Magic Mike XXL” with Channing Tatum.
