Stephen “tWitch’”Boss’ mother, Connie Boss Alexander, has addressed her son’s untimely death.
“Family and friends, thank you for all the love, prayers and encouragement,” she wrote in an Instagram Story on Friday. “Please know I see all the messages, texts, posts and the phone calls. I can’t use words right now. Please know I will reach out when I can.
“Stephen Laurel, your mother loves you to eternity and beyond,” she finished her statement.
Alexander also mentioned Boss in several other Instagram posts prior to his death, including during a “Life Is Good” social media challenge.
“Scrolling through, realizing any picture is inadequate to describe the happiness and pride I feel on today,” she wrote in a tribute for his 40th birthday on Sept. 29.
“All the professional accomplishments not withstanding, what strikes me more is the man you have become…from a son and brother, to a husband and father.. I couldn’t have envisioned a better journey.. Not always easy but oh the outcome is….everything,” Alexander added.
The seemingly happy-go-lucky Boss died by a self-inflicted gunshot to the head on Monday. The popular former DJ for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” was found at a motel near his Encino home that he shared with his wife, fellow pro dancer Allison Holker, and their three kids: Zaia, 3, Maddox, 6, and 14-year-old Weslie, Holker’s daughter from a previous relationship, whom Boss adopted.
Law enforcement told TMZ on Friday that Ellen DeGeneres’ former DJ apparently Ubered to the motel and left a suicide note in the room that vaguely alluded to past challenges he faced.
