Stephen “Twitch” Boss’ widow, Allison Boss, turns in half of his estate after he dies intestate
Stephen “tWitch” Boss’ widow, Allison Holker, has filed a spousal filing to gain control of half of the late entertainer’s estate after he died by suicide last December, aged 40, without a will.
Holker, 35, requested in court documents reviewed by The Blast that “property pass without administration to the surviving spouse or civil partner,” meaning all of his assets would be transferred to her name.
Boss had no will at the time of his death, Holker said in court documents, asking for “confirmation of the surviving spouse’s ownership.”
Holker told the court that when she and Boss married in 2013 — before he got a job on The Ellen DeGeneres Show — he “only owned personal items of little value” with no money saved.
Holker said there were “no written agreements between” them “that would provide for a non-prorated division of the total value of the common property.”
Details: Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ widow Allison Holker, 35, has filed a spousal filing to gain control of half of the late entertainer’s estate after he died by suicide without a will at the age of 40. The couple was spotted in LA on December 5, just over a week before he was found dead
She is asking the court to award her half of the property and stocks they amassed during their marriage, including TV royalties.
Holker asked for an “undivided one-half interest” in the following assets: Stephen Boss Productions, Inc.; a Goldman Sachs investment account; and royalties from cast and crew production; Disney Worldwide Services, Inc.; GEP Talent Services, LLC; and SAG/AFTRA.
It wasn’t immediately clear why Holker filed the legal documents.
Boss was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head in a Los Angeles hotel room on December 13, 2022, in what authorities ruled a suicide.
Workers at the hotel where he was found said he didn’t appear “visibly upset” when he checked in for a single evening and was carrying “a small bag,” according to the outlet.
Following the tragedy, Holker, who is a mother to three with Boss – Weslie, 14, Maddox, six, and Zaia, three – said in a statement to People: “It is with a heavy heart that I have to share my husband Stephen who has left us.
“Stephen lit up every room he walked into. He valued family, friends and community above all and guidance 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.”

News of the legal move comes after Rwanda’s gorilla conservation campus, which goes by the name of Ellen DeGeneres, planted a tree in Boss’s memory earlier this week.
“As we celebrated the one-year anniversary of our Ellen campus last week, we took a moment to recognize a very special person who left us too soon,” the Ellen’s Instagram account said in a statement Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund campus Monday.
The statement continued, “tWitch brought light to so many and was a wonderful friend of @ellendegeneres. We planted this tree in his honor so that he will always be remembered on campus.’
A silver plaque on the display read: “In memory of Stephen ‘Twitch’ Boss and the light he brought to the world. Planted in February 2023.”
DeGeneres, 65, began working with Boss in 2014 when he guest-DJed her talk show, eventually working his way up to co-executive producer by 2020.
DeGeneres cried in a video she uploaded to Instagram after Boss’s death as she said “we will never make sense of the beloved entertainer’s death.”
“Everyone is in pain,” she said. “The holidays are tough I guess anyway, but to honor Twitch I think the best we can do is laugh and hug and play games and dance and sing.”
The TV personality continued, “So we honor him by doing the things he loved, which is dancing. He loved music, he loved games, so let’s do this – and I know it seems difficult, it seems impossible, but this is how we honor him.”
The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund’s Ellen Campus opened in February 2022, and DeGeneres and his wife Portia de Rossi attended a dedication ceremony in June 2022.
