Stephen “tWitch” Boss danced in a $4 million house days before his death

Just days before Stephen “tWitch” Boss, best known as the DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, tragically took his own life, he was spotted dancing and smiling all over his California home.

On Monday night, his wife, Allison Holker, of almost 10, posted several videos to Instagram of the two getting into the Christmas spirit with a dance in front of their Christmas tree.

“HOLIDAY SUNDAY FRIDAY DANCE !!! With my lover,” Holker, 34, wrote in the caption.

Boss, who was just 40, posted another video earlier this month of him grooving to music in his living room, with the caption: “Walking around a little on a Friday night 🕺🏾”

But as fans were quick to point out, sometimes things aren’t what they seem.

“Always check in with your friends and family,” a Twitter user named Ashanti said over an advertorial video showing Boss and his family dancing to the music of a bouncing toy. “People fight secret battles that we [know] nothing about. Rip Twitch. This is so heartbreaking. I pray for the woman and these beautiful babies.”

The two bought a newbuild home in Encino for $2.75 million in 2019, records obtained by The Post show.

The home is now worth an estimated $4 million and features six bedrooms and seven bathrooms over 4,600 square feet.

Anchored as a contemporary farmhouse in the upscale Amestoy Estates, it includes smart home technology, a built-in BBQ and backyard fire pit with an expansive pool and spa.

The previous listing indicates that the house has an ‘award winning elementary school’ nearby. Boss and Holker share three children.

That same year, 2019, they also bought a four bedroom, four bathroom home in Utah.

The couple previously owned a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Sherman Oaks, which they sold for $1.28 million in 2019 before remodeling into their current home.

Sources told TMZ Boss checked into a motel less than a mile from his home Monday morning. Motel staff revealed that he did not appear to be in any kind of distress and was not visibly upset.

He reportedly brought a small bag and had only booked the room for one night.

On Tuesday, when Boss missed his register, a motel employee went to his room where they discovered his body in the bathroom, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

His wife was distraught when she reported her husband missing – revealing it was nothing like him and that he had left his car at home.

DeGeneres herself paid tribute to her longtime friend, who had worked with her since 2014.

“I’m lovesick. Twitch was pure love and light. He was my family and I loved him with all my heart. I will miss him,” said Degeneres, 64. “Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children – Weslie, Maddox and Zaia.”

His wife also released a statement.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that my husband Stephen has left us,” Holker said of the So You Think You Can Dance judge. “Stephen lit up every room he walked into. He valued family, friends and community above all and guidance with love and light was everything to him. 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,” she continued. “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.”

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