Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ mum speaks posthumously: ‘I can’t use words’
Stephen “tWitch” Boss’ mother, Connie Boss Alexander, doesn’t have the words to express how she feels about her son’s sudden death, but she thanked everyone for their kind messages.
“Family and friends, thank you for all the love, prayers and encouragement,” she wrote on Instagram Stories Thursday.
“Please know that I see all of your messages, texts, posts, and phone calls. I can’t use words right now. Please know that I will reach out to you when I can.”
Alexandre concluded her post by sending a message to her late son and asking her followers, “Please keep us in prayer.”
“Stephen Laurel, your mom loves you forever and beyond. 💙 💔,” she wrote.
The “So You Think You Can Dance” cast died by suicide on Tuesday at the age of 40, leaving behind wife Allison Holker and their three children Wesley, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zaya, 3.
The father-of-three reportedly picked up a share service from his Los Angeles home and checked into a nearby motel. A hotel employee discovered the body of the boss on Tuesday inside his room.
On Friday, authorities reported to TMZ that Bose left a suicide note at the scene of his death, in reference to the challenges he faced previously. However, the outlet says it’s “unclear exactly what he was referring to” in the note.
After his death, Holker released a statement, reflecting on the type of person Boss is.
“Steven lit up every room he entered,” the dancing pro, 34, said in a statement to People on Wednesday. “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 was also remembered by many of his close friends, including Ellen DeGeneres, with whom he worked as a DJ on her eponymous talk show from 2014 until 2022.
She was “heartbroken,” the “Finding Dory” star, 64, wrote, adding that Boss “was pure love and light.”
“He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart. I will miss him,” DeGeneres wrote. “Please send your love and support to Alison and his beautiful children — Wesley, Maddox, and Zaya.”
Channing Tatum, who worked alongside Boss on the series Magic Mike XXL, has taken to social media to pay homage to his late friend.
“I have no words. There aren’t any. My head or heart can’t quite comprehend it,” the 42-year-old actor wrote on Instagram on Wednesday.
“There’s so much… I don’t know where to start. I love you. I’ll see you again buddy. Until then.”
