On Instagram, Korn guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer posted a video of the sun in the sky and 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.”
Fellow Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch posted two photos on Instagram. One simply reads “Love, prayers for my bro, my homie Jonathan Davis and his family” and the other is just an image of a heart breaking into pieces. Both images were captioned with a broken heart emoji.
As well as the band mates, the band’s former manager, Jeff Kwatinetz, took to Twitter to post his condolences.
“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,” he wrote. “I pray for his kids and family. I knew Deven and no one deserves to struggle w addiction and die. Too often, too much!”
Despite Kwatinetz’ tweet, it should be noted that no cause of death has been publicly revealed as of yet. Deven did reportedly, however, have a history with substance abuse throughout her life.
On the day of Deven’s passing, Jonathan Davis’ publicist released a statement on his behalf.
“The Davis family is brokenhearted over the devastating loss of Deven Davis,” the statement reads. “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.”
