‘Twitch’ boss left suicide note pointing to past ‘challenges’

According to a report Friday, Stephen “tWitch” Boss left a suicide note that vaguely alluded to old challenges he was facing.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the beloved “Ellen DeGeneres Show” DJ left the note in his Los Angeles motel room, where he put his phone on airplane mode to ensure concerned family and friends couldn’t find him.

According to the outlet, it was an ambiguous reference to previous challenges, saying it’s unclear what exactly he was referring to.

The 40-year-old father of three apparently rode an Uber from his home to the Oak Tree Inn motel, which was less than a mile from his $4 million home in Encino, early Monday morning, TMZ found.

Unable to reach him, his wife, Allison Holker — a professional dancer Boss met on “So You Think You Can Dance” — frantically rushed to an LAPD precinct to sound the alarm about his unusual behavior.

A motel employee then found his body Tuesday.

The Los Angeles County coroner confirmed the cause of death as suicide by gunshot to the head with “no evidence of third-party fault.” The case has officially been closed.

Boss and Holker recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary.

They had three children: Zaia, 3, Maddox, 6, and 14-year-old Weslie, Holker’s daughter from a previous relationship who Boss adopted.
