His suicide note allegedly contains am ambiguous message where he tried to pen his life challenges, but it’s not clear what exactly he was referring to.Following the tragedy, American actor and choreographer Columbus Short shared his theory about the reason behind Stephen’s suicide.
In a now-deleted video, Short shared on his Instagram that the Magic Mike XXL alum may have lost all his life savings.“RIP tWitch,” he said. “People made investments, people do a lot of things — this is just a theory. What if you invested something that took your whole life savings, possibly? … It gets rough.”
“You guys don’t know what people are going through … People are awful … tWitch was amazing, is amazing still — his legacy shall live on.”However, a source close to Boss rejected this claim and said there’s absolutely no truth to Short’s allegations.
Stephen Boss is survived by his wife, with whom he recently celebrated his ninth wedding anniversary, and his three children: Weslie, 14; Maddox, 6; and Zaia, 3.
After she failed to contact him on Tuesday, Stephen’s wife, Allison Holker, contacted the LA police and reported him missing when he didn’t return his phone calls and messages.
Holker reported that her husband, 40, left the house a day earlier without saying anything and didn’t contact her ever since which was so unlike him.
