Heartbreaking news broke on Wednesday that Stephen “tWitch” Boss — the famous DJ most known for his role on Ellen Degeneres and “So You Think You Can Dance” — is dead, TMZ reports.
Police said he was found in a hotel room — dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, reports say.
According to TMZ, Stephen’s wife, Allison Holker, ran into an LAPD station Tuesday, Dec. 13, saying “Stephen had left home without his car.”
