Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, the DJ from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, has died, his wife has said, in what Los Angeles media reported was an apparent suicide.
Entertainment website TMZ said the DJ and dancer was found in a hotel in the city on Tuesday with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 40-year-old’s wife, Allison Holker, had contacted police because she was concerned for her husband. His body was discovered a short time later.
“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us,” Holker, 34, said, according to multiple media sources.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office said an autopsy was due to be carried out on 40-year-old Stephen Boss, who they said died Tuesday at a “hotel/motel.”
Boss became a fixture on The Ellen DeGeneres Show after he joined in 2014.
He stayed with the programme until it ended this year.
