Stephen 'tWitch' Boss' 14-year-old daughter has made her return to social media just under two months after her dad passed away.

On December 13, 2022, it was announced that professional dancer and DJ for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Stephen Boss, had died by suicide aged 40 after his body was discovered at a hotel in Los Angeles.

As per TMZ, law enforcement officials told the outlet that Boss had taken an Uber from his home to a hotel less than a mile away that morning, switching his phone to airplane mode so no one could reach him.

At the time, his wife, Allison Holker, rushed to the police station when she noticed that her husband hadn't been in contact, which she described as very "unusual" of him especially since the couple hadn't been experiencing any "arguments or issues" at home.

Meanwhile, employees at the hotel were forced to enter Boss' room after he failed to check out the following morning. Upon entering, they discovered his belongings still in the room before finding his body in the bathroom and immediately called emergency services.

According to a separate release by TMZ at the time, Boss allegedly left a note before his death, which "ambiguously" alluded to the professional dancer's "past challenges," but the outlet went on to add that it was "unclear exactly what he was referring to."

Since then, there has been limited activity by Boss's family on social media, - which is to be expected - as they grieved the loss of their father figure.

However, 14-year-old Weslie Boss made a return to TikTok yesterday, posting a subtle but heartfelt tribute to her late dad.

Taking to the video-sharing platform, the teen shared a clip of herself, zooming into her phone case where two polaroid shots of her and Boss were tucked in alongside the caption: "i miss u."

Since it was posted, it has been viewed over 225,600 times and has collected thousands of kind comments from fans.

"I love you babygirl, always and forever," commented her mother.

"He’s looking over you love, i know it’s hard i hope it gets better," another TikTok user commented.

"Your so beautiful mamas sorry about your dad sending condolences n prayers," added another.

"I’m so sorry for your loss. He’s watching down on you. He had soul an amazing soul," commented this person.

"Sending you so so much love. You are so beautiful."

This user emphasized that the teen's dad brought "so much joy" writing: "It must be so hard. Your dad brought so much joy. Hang in there."

As per the Daily Mail, the 14-year-old, who Boss' widow Holker had in 2008 with an unnamed ex-fiancé, was adopted by Boss after they tied the knot in 2013.

The news comes just two days after the 14-year-old's mom dedicated a post to fans to thank them for their support.

In the video, which was posted to both TikTok and Instagram, Holker said: "I just want to say thank you for all the love and support that you guys have sent to me and my family at this time.

"It has been very challenging and emotional, but you guys have brought so much hope and inspiration to us by sharing stories and memories and moments and different ways that Stephen impacted your life."

She continued: "He lived his life from love, and he made you feel a certain way. My family and I have always said that we wanted to make sure that our purpose was looked at by bringing joy to people.

"Joy to people’s homes, you know, from dance or love. And that’s not gonna change for us. It’s going to feel a little bit different, but we know that that’s our purpose and we’ll still do that to this day."

The 35-year-old then went on to say that she would repay the favor to fans who were supportive during her time of need, emphasizing that everyone should choose kindness over anything else.
