Almost two months after the passing of Stephen “tWitch” Boss, his widow and mother of his kids, requested in a California court to be named as the new owner of half of the late dancer’s estate. According to Holker Boss, her husband died without a will.

The 40-year-old dancer, actor, host, and tv producer shared kids Weslie, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3. According to the court documents obtained by Page Six, when the pair married in 2013, tWitch did not have a net worth; therefore, her California Spousal Property Petition formally requested ownership of his assets.

The publication informed that Allison asked the court for “confirmation of property belonging to the surviving spouse” and “determination of property passing to the surviving spouse.” She also said he “owned only personal effects of little value” before working on “The Ellen Show.”

Recently, Ellen DeGeneres honored him at her Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund campus in Rwanda. DeGeneres and her foundation paid tribute to the late dancer and former co-executive producer by planting a tree in his honor.
