Stephen “tWitch” Boss, a former co-star, is remembered by Jada Pinkett Smith as being “gentle and kind.”.
According to his wife, Allison Holker Boss, the former DJ for the Ellen DeGeneres Show committed suicide at 40.
Among the famous people who paid tribute to him was Pinkett Smith, 51, who collaborated with the dancer on the 2015 movie Magic Mike XXL.
She wrote, “I woke up this morning to the news that tWitch is gone,” in the caption of an Instagram photo of herself with Stephen and co-star Donald Glover. “.
Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia, his wife Allison’s three children, have my heart breaking. I want to send my condolences to his family members. “.
The set of Magic Mike was a lot of fun for us. Pinkett Smith persisted in her speech. He was incredibly compassionate, understanding, and giving. Many people’s suffering goes unrecognised. He ought to have realised he didn’t have to. May the Great Supreme hold his brilliant, lovely soul in His hand, and may the same Higher Power mend the broken hearts of his loved ones. “.
Stephen gained notoriety by participating in MTV’s The Wade Robson Project before placing second on Star Search. He then made another appearance on So You Think You Can Dance in 2008, finishing the season as runner-up before coming back as an All-Star. When the program was revived in 2022, he took part as a judge. Also, he has made appearances on Modern Family and Step Up All In.
On The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2014, Boss made his debut as a guest DJ. Later, he developed into a recurring character on the show, and in 2020, he was named co-executive producer.
In a statement, Allison, Stephen’s 34-year-old wife, said that “every space he entered with light. Above all else, he placed great value on his kin, friends, and neighborhood. He firmly believed that the best course of action was to lead with love and light. He was the pillar of our family, the ideal spouse and head of our home, and he set the bar high for his followers. “.
To say he left a legacy and had a positive impact on people’s lives would be an understatement, she continued. There will never be a day when we forget about him, I’m sure of it. During this trying time for myself and our three children, we humbly request your privacy. “.
Allison told her husband, “Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I’ll always save the last dance for you.”.
