It adds that before noon, paramedics received a call for a medical emergency at a Los Angeles hotel and that’s where they found Stephen, dead of a gunshot wound that was apparently self-inflicted. Boss was pronounced dead at the scene and the cause of death is being investigated as a probable suicide.

“He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans. To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt. I’m sure not a day will pass without us honouring his memory,” she added. “Stephen, we love. We miss you and I will always save the last dance for you.”

Stephen came to the Ellen show as a DJ in 2014, and was on the show until the end of the show last May. He had a brief career in film, always as a dancer, in films such as Step Up and Magic Mike XXL. Boss and Holker married in 2013 and had three children.
