Allison Holker is reflecting on the most difficult period of her life.
Four months after the death of husband Stephen “tWitch” Boss, the dancer is speaking out about her family’s healing journey.
“No one had any inkling that he was low. He didn’t want people to know,” Allison—who shared kids Weslie, 14, Maddox, 7, and Zaia, 3, with tWitch—told People in her first interview since his passing. “He just wanted to be everyone’s Superman and protector.”
The beloved dancer who appeared alongside Ellen DeGeneres as a DJ and executive producer on her long-running talk show, died by suicide in December at the age of 40.
“It’s been really hard,” Allison noted, “because I can’t understand what was happening in that moment [he died].”
And although she’s facing a “complex” array of emotions, she told the outlet, “Stephen brought so much joy to this world, and he deserves to be remembered as the beautiful man he was.”
