Ellen DeGeneres ‘heartbroken’ over Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ death


Ellen DeGeneres is “heartbroken” following the death of her talk show’s DJ and producer, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, she wrote in a tribute Wednesday.

DeGeneres tweeted Boss was “pure love and light” shortly after the multi-talented entertainer’s wife confirmed his death at age 40.

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

Boss joined “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” as a DJ in 2014 and became an executive producer in 2020. A popular staple on the “Ellen” broadcasts, Boss remained with the show until its final episode in May.

He had three kids with wife Allison Holker Boss, whom he met on “So You Think You Can Dance.”  Holker Boss described her husband as the “backbone of our family” in a statement announcing his death.

“To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt,” Holker Boss told People. “I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honor his memory.”

Many others also shared tributes, including actress Yvette Nicole Brown, who said she was a fan of Boss since his days on “So You Think You Can Dance.”

“This news has broken my heart,” Brown tweeted, adding, “He was always so joyful & full of life. Always.”

Actress Mira Sorvino shared a similar sentiment.

“I send love & will pray for Allison Holker & their 3 children,” she tweeted. “I am so sad — his joyful talent lit up our hearts from the time my kids were small.”
