Ellen DeGeneres Responds to Death of Stephen “tWitch” Boss

Ellen DeGeneres is open about the death of Stephen “tWitch” Boss.

“I’m heartbroken,” DeGeneres, 64, said on Twitter.

“tWitch was pure love and light. He was my family and I loved him with all my heart,” added his longtime TV boss. “I will miss him. Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children – Weslie, Maddox and Zaia.”

The So You Think You Can Dance contestant and Magic Mike XXL actor was 40, The Post confirmed.

The TV personality was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, TMZ reported.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce that my husband Stephen has left us,” Boss’s wife Allison Holker, 34, confirmed in a statement to The Post.

According to police sources, Holker — a professional dancer who also appeared on “So You Think You Can Dance” — frantically ran into an LAPD station and said her husband left home without his car, which she says is different be as him.

Police later received a call about a shooting at an LA hotel where they found Boss.

Boss began DJing on the DeGeneres daytime series of the same name in 2014 and was eventually promoted to executive producer in 2020. He stayed with her until the 2022 finale of the embattled show.

He defended his boss amid widespread allegations of toxicity on the talk show, claiming there had been a lot of “love” behind the scenes.

“We can’t talk too much about it legally, but I’ll say this, there was love,” he told Us Weekly in 2020. “Obviously there are some things to discuss, but from my perspective and countless others, there was love. I’ll just leave it at that until there comes a time when we can speak more publicly. There was love and there will always be love.”

Boss is survived by his wife Allison and their three children: Weslie, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3.

“He valued family, friends and community above all else and guidance with love and light was everything to him,” Holker said in her statement. “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’m sure not a day will go by that we don’t honor his memory. We ask for privacy at this difficult time for me and especially for our three children.

“Stephen we love you, we miss you and I will always save the last dance for you.”
