Stephen Laurel “tWitch” Boss, who marked fame after featuring as the DJ at the Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, was announced dead at 40 and it appears to be a suicide. Holker confirmed that it was from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

According to reports, Holker told the Los Angeles Police Department when Stephen left his home without his car, which Holker found very unusual of him. Soon after the cops received a call from a hotel in LA, where tWitch’s dead body was discovered.

Soon after his death, Ellen DeGeneres shared a throwback video from the show, where we can see Boss in his best cheerful moods in the show, and it left us all overwhelmed to witness Boss in his such joviality, and making it harder to believe that he committed suicide.

Ellen DeGeneres sharing the throwback video wrote, “Right now what I want to do is remember all the love and laughter I had with tWitch. He brought so much joy to my life. I know he brought joy to yours too. I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite moments with him. If you want to you can also share yours. #ILovetWitch”

A user comments, “ feel for the people left behind to a lifetime of ‘why did he leave me/us?’. His kids will be screwed up for the rest of their lives. Its a never ending trauma that never gets easier “

Another comments, “Mental illness is real. Check on everyone that you know who suffers. Just because they’re smiling doesn’t always mean they’re ok”

Alicia Keys shares video of Twitch and his wife Allison Holker, where the two can be seen dancing together. Alicia added an emotional note in the caption and wrote, “This is SO sad. Saw this shared on @sir_twitch_alot’s page earlier this week. What a bright soul. What a beautiful connection we had through music. I pray these songs brought him and his family joy! Praying for solace for Allison, children, and loved ones. We have to walk with kindness and love with everyone we cross paths with everyday. You just never know…… ???????????? @allisonholker”
