Allison Holker Boss shared a touching statement on Instagram Wednesday about her late husband, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, who died last week.
The choreographer, dancer and TV host shared a picture of the two embracing with the caption: “My ONE and ONLY Oh how my heart aches. We miss you so much.”
Boss was a dancer, TV personality and longtime DJ on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The Los Angeles coroner said the cause of death was suicide, the Associated Press reported. He was 40.
Holker Boss announced her husband’s death in a statement to People last week, writing, “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us.”
“Stephen lit up every room he stepped into,” she continued. “He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.”
Boss and Holker Boss have three children: Zaia, Maddox and Weslie.
Celebrities shared an outpouring of tributes to Boss after his death.
“Remembering a life well lived,” actor Billy Porter wrote on Instagram last week. “Please keep the family of Stephen “tWitch” Boss in your prayers. And please check on your friends. Even the ‘strong’ ones, the ‘happy’ ones. We never know what folks are going thru.”
“Please know I see all the messages, texts, posts and the phone calls,” she wrote. “I can’t use words right now. Please know I will reach out when I can.”
