The widow of Stephen "tWitch" Boss has posted a heartbreaking tribute to her late husband, as she thanked fans for their support through her time of grief.

Boss was best known for being a DJ on the Ellen DeGeneres show and fans were left devastated when the beloved 40-year-old died by suicide in December.

Tributes poured in for the TV star, with his wife Allison Holker sharing a slideshow of the family including their children 14-year-old Weslie, six-year-old Maddox, and three-year-old Zaia.

Holker has since posted an emotional video where she pays further tribute to her husband while thanking supporters for their love.

Check out what she had to say below:

During the video, 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."

Holker went on to tell fans to always choose kindness and that she would always be there for the fans who were there for her during her time of grief.

Ellen was one of the many stars who paid tribute to Boss following his death, posting several memories of the pair's time together working on The Ellen DeGeneres Show before it ended in 2022.

"I’m heartbroken. tWitch was pure love and light. He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart," Ellen wrote. "I will miss him. Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children - Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia."

Our thoughts remain with his family, friends, and fans.
