KORN Singer's Wife, DEVEN DAVIS, Dead At 39
According to TMZ, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis‘s wife died earlier today.
A former porn star who married Jonathan in 2004, Deven Davis and the singer had two kids together, Pirate and Zeppelin. (Jonathan‘s first son from his previous marriage, Nathan, will turn 23 this fall.)
TMZ reports that Jonathan filed for divorce in October 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. He also filed for a domestic violence restraining order earlier today. The judge issued a temporary order blocking any child custody or visitation by Deven. The restraining order also prohibits her from having contact with the family dog, Chaos.
In his court declaration, Jonathan alleged Deven was deeply involved with drugs, which she had struggled with for more than 20 years. He alleged her drug use was causing emotional harm to the kids through neglect. He said that had been dependent on both prescription and illegal narcotics. According to the singer, she had been to rehab six times and ”is constantly under the influence of the nitrous oxide, cocaine and Norco.”
According to the documents, Deven had been in a sober home but went missing last Friday and hadn’t been seen for a week.
No cause of death has yet been revealed.
Deven was born Deven Augustina Schuette in Findlay, Ohio on April 6, 1979. When she was 18, she changed her name to Deven Davis for modeling before she was married or even met her soon-to-be husband. As fate would have it, Davis ended up being her married name.
Jonathan reportedly gave up recreational drugs and alcohol almost 20 years ago, but has continued to struggle with chronic and debilitating anxiety and depression — and consequently a reliance on prescription drugs.
The singer has admitted in interviews that he was treated in 2013 for Xanax addiction.
