Deven Davis, the estranged wife of Korn singer Jonathan Davis, died at the age of 39 on Friday, according to multiple reports. TMZ notes that the musician filed a restraining order against Ms. Davis on the same day as her death, Aug. 17.
No cause of death has yet been disclosed, as told by SPIN. A statement from Jonathan and the Davis family asks for respect and privacy following the death, thanking fans for their “love, understanding and prayers of support during this difficult time.”
“The Davis family is brokenhearted over the devastating loss of Deven Davis. We ask that you respect their privacy — and the privacy of those close to the family — and allow them the space to mourn in private. We thank you for your love, understanding and prayers of support during this difficult time.”
Jonathan and Deven married in 2004, and the pair had two kids together. The Korn leader filed for divorce in 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. The restraining order filed on Friday was issued for domestic violence, and a court declaration claims that Deven was “constantly under the influence of the nitrous oxide, cocaine, and Norco.” Deven was last reported to be in a sober home, according to the court documents, but went missing in the week leading to her death.
Members of Korn have offered their condolences to their lead singer following the unfortunate passing. See them below:
Our prayers are with The Davis family at this difficult time. Jonathan, your wife will no longer suffer all of the demons. She is now with God. May she Rest In Peace & may you trust that me, your band, our families are here for you & will together help you and your boys to heal. We love you so much.-The Shaffer Family. @officialjonathandavis
