KORN Members, Former Manager Comment On Death Of JONATHAN DAVIS's Wife
KORN guitarists James ”Munky” Shaffer and Brian ”Head” Welch have commented on the passing of frontman Jonathan Davis‘s estranged wife.
Deven Davis died on Friday at the age of 39. The former model’s cause of death has not yet been revealed. However, she reportedly suffered with sobriety and substance abuse throughout her life.
In an Instagram post, Munky wrote: ”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 and may you trust that me, your band, our families are here for you and will together help you and your boys to heal. We love you so much.” He signed the message with ”The Shaffer family.”
Head shared an image which read: ”Love, prayers for my bro, my homie Jonathan Davis and his family.” He later shared another picture of a heart shattering into pieces and captioned it with a broken heart emoji.
Also commenting on Deven‘s passing was former KORN manager Jeff Kwatinetz, who wrote on Twitter: ”My thoughts and prayers go out to one of my closest friends and a truly great human who I love, Jonathan Davis, on the death of his wife from an OD. I pray for his kids and family. I knew Deven and no one deserves to struggle w addiction and die. Too often, too much!”
In 2016, Jonathan, 47, filed for divorce from Deven and on Friday filed for a domestic violence restraining order, according to TMZ.
Jonathan was reportedly granted a temporary order, which prohibited Deven from visiting their two children or having any contact with the family’s dog.
In his declaration, Jonathan claimed Deven has struggled with drug abuse for over 20 years.
The singer alleged Deven was addicted to prescription and illegal narcotics and has been around their children while under the influence.
He also claimed his estranged wife ”is constantly under the influence of the nitrous oxide, cocaine and Norco,” according to TMZ.
Jonathan alleged she had a drug dealer boyfriend who was passed out on the sofa in her living room when he brought the children to her house.
He also claimed he found a heroin pipe and cocaine floating in the toilet bowl while Deven was passed out on the floor upstairs.
According to the documents, Deven had been in a sober home but went missing a week ago and hadn’t been seen since.
A former girl-on-girl porn star who married Jonathan in 2004, Deven and the singer had two kids together, Pirate and Zeppelin. (Jonathan‘s first son from his previous marriage, Nathan, will turn 23 this fall.)
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
