Allison Holker will receive half of Stephen 'tWitch boss' estate after he died without writing a will.

Twitch was just 40 years old when he passed away last year (13 December), leaving behind Holker and their three children, Weslie Fowler, 14, Maddox Laurel Boss, 6, and Zaia Boss, 3.

While the pair had been married nearly a decade since 2013, Twitch did not have any will in place for his wife or family, which led Holker to file with the California Spousal Property Petition just a matter of months after his tragic death in February 2022.

Allison Holker will receive half of Stephen 'tWitch boss' estate after he died without writing a will.

Since filing, per the Superior Court of California, Holker's requests have finally been granted according to documents obtained by People on Friday (28 April).

According to the publication, the mother-of-three will now receive half of her late husband's estate alongside any future earnings.

E! Online also said that the decision was handed down on 26 April, four months after his passing.

Twitch was found dead in Encino, Los Angeles, and his death was a suicide via 'gunshot wound to the head', according to the coroner’s report.

According to California law, the surviving spouse is entitled to half of their deceased partner's estate.

However, to receive the pay-out, the living partner needs to file a legal petition to prove that they were actually married.

As soon as this petition was signed off by a judge recognising that Holker was Twitch's wife since 2013 - she was awarded 'property passing' rights.

Alongside this, the dancer is now entitled to receive royalties from any of his interests, which include SAG/AFTRA, Cast and Crew Production Services and Disney.

She will also receive interest from his Goldman Sachs Investment account as well as 100 percent of the shares in his company Stephen Boss Productions, Inc.

In the filing, Holker declared that Twitch did not 'own anything of value' when they got married in 2013.

It also added that he 'did not receive any assets by way of gift, devise or bequest during the marriage, and all existing assets were acquired during the marriage, by virtue of the work, skills and efforts of the parties'.

UNILAD has reached out to Holker's reps for comment.

Holker took to Instagram just a day after the DJ's death to offer a tribute to her late husband.

"To say he left a legacy would be an understatement."

She penned: "Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends, and community above all else, and leading 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.

"To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt.

"I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won't honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children. Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you."
