December 15, 2022 Themacforums – Ellen DeGeneres “Heartbroken” Over Death of Stephen “tWitch” Boss. In a statement on Wednesday, Ellen DeGeneres expressed her “heartbreak” over the passing of Stephen “tWitch” Boss, a longtime DJ and co-executive producer of her former talk show.
“I’m devastated. She stated on Instagram, “tWitch was pure love and light. “I loved him with all of my heart because he was my family. He will be missed. Please send Allison and his lovely children Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia your love and support.
His wife, Allison Holker Boss, confirmed his passing to Themacforums on Wednesday in a statement. He was 40 years old.
According to the LA County Medical Examiner, he committed suicide. On Wednesday, the LA County Coroner’s Office released the results of their investigation and the final report about his passing.
Beginning as a DJ on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2014, Boss later advanced to co-executive producer and sporadic guest host.
Throughout the difficulties of the show’s run, Boss openly defended his friend Ellen DeGeneres amid claims of a harsh workplace made against her by certain staff members.
Boss told Us Weekly, “We can’t speak too much legally about it, but I’ll say this, there’s been, love. “There are undoubtedly certain issues to address, but from my perspective and that of countless others, there has been love. I’ll stop there until we have a chance to talk about it more openly. Love has existed and will exist in the future.
Boss reflected on his time there fondly as the show prepared for its finale earlier this year, telling Entertainment Tonight that saying goodbye was difficult.
Although he acknowledged that everything had a start and an end, he added that as the end drew nearer, he began to miss it and savor the little moments, thinking, “Well, maybe I’m not quite ready to say goodbye just yet.” I’ve mentioned it before, but on the other hand, this is the natural course of events, and I’m just eager for my buddy to begin her new chapter of the rest of her life.
When the “Ellen” show was about to end, DeGeneres shocked Boss with an emotional homage live on TV. She remarked, “Well, I don’t want to say goodbye,” at one point.
She continued by recalling their first encounter, which was appropriate for a dance class at her place.
“Getting to know each other was like taking a crash course… he was quite patient with me, she added. “We basically became friends over dancing together,”
DeGeneres continued by pointing out that a component was missing if he was not there on the program for whatever reason.
I rely on him to glance over and crack jokes, she added. “You already know how much I adore you, tWitch. Every day when we bid each other farewell, we remind each other of this. We both say “love you” after the show. I respond with “Love you” when he adds, “I love you a lot.” Therefore, he won’t ever leave my life.
Boss’ emotional response to DeGeneres’ words and the video clip.
I appreciate the new family we have, and I’ll always be grateful that you provided me a space to be by myself, he remarked. Whether I was a genuine DJ or not, he said, “I always felt at home.”
You’re a fake DJ, but you’re really excellent, DeGeneres responded in jest.
