Korn frontman Jonathan Davis’ estranged wife Deven Davis has died, PEOPLE confirms. She was 39.

“The Davis family is brokenhearted over the devastating loss of Deven Davis,” the family said in a statement to PEOPLE.

“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.”

The 39-year-old former model’s cause of death has not yet been revealed, however, she reportedly suffered with substance abuse and maintaining sobriety throughout her life, according to TMZ.

In 2016, Jonathan, 47, filed for divorce from Deven and on Friday filed for a domestic violence restraining order, the outlet reports.

Jonathan was reportedly granted a temporary order, which prohibits Deven from visiting their two children or having any contact with the family’s dog.

In the documents, obtained by TMZ, Jonathan claimed Deven has struggled with drug abuse for over 20 years.

Jonathan 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.
