“Family and friends, thank you for all the love, prayers and encouragement,” she wrote on her Instagram Story (via Today). “Please know I see all the messages, texts, posts and the phone calls.

Boss was found deceased in a motel room in Encino, Calif. on Dec. 13.

He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, as previously reported. The coroner’s report listed his manner of death as suicide.

On Friday, details emerged that a note was found in the motel room near his body. Law enforcement sources told TMZ the note suggested Boss had faced past challenges. It’s unclear what those challenges were.

The hip-hop dancer was best known for his role as a DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Boss joined Ellen in 2014, and was promoted to co-executive producer of the daytime talk show in 2020.

Before becoming a fixture on daytime TV, he competed on So You Think You Can Dance and was the runner-up in 2008. He was announced as a permanent judge for the 17th season of the dance competition series earlier this year.

Boss is survived by his wife, Allison Holker, and their three children, Weslie, 14, Maddox, 6, Zaia, 3
