Hollywood mourns the loss of Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’

Stephen tWitch’ Boss is dead at 40, by suicide

The famous DJ on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, Stephen tWitch’ Boss was found dead in a hotel room in Los Angeles. He left home without his car, which was unusual according to his wife, Allison Holker. We learned that Allison Holker ran into an LAPD station to report. Then around 11:15 am, paramedics received a call for a medical emergency at an L. A hotel, where they found Stephen dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

It was shocking to hear about his tragic passing, especially after seeing his anniversary posting a few days ago. Then, seeing his last post on Instagram doing the happy holiday Sunday Funday dance with his wife, we JUST CAN’T comprehend the news. Sending prayers, love, and strength to his wife Allison, and his beautiful kids.

Nevertheless, mental health is a serious issue. Fitness is not just physical, mental health is just as important. We will never know what someone is going through behind their smile.
