Korn Members Respond to the Death of Jonathan Davis’ Wife; Band’s Former Manager Says She Overdosed
Korn guitarists James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch have each taken to social media to comment — verbally and/or visually — on the death of Devan Davis, the wife of vocalist Jonathan Davis, who died late last week:
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
Meanwhile, the band’s former manager, Jeff Kawtinetz, has now publicly stated that Devan Davis died of a drug overdose:
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!

At the time of her death, Devan had reportedly gone missing from a sober house, where she was continuing a decades-long battle with addiction. Furthermore, a recent restraining order filed by Jonathan Davis on behalf of himself and the two sons he shared with Devan is said to have alleged that she’d recently been dating a drug dealer, and that he had found various illicit substances and drug paraphernalia in Devan’s home.
The thoughts of the staff here at MetalSucks continue to be with Deven and Jonathan’s families, friends and bandmates.
