The wife of Korn lead singer Jonathan Davis died Friday—the same day Davis issued a domestic violence restraining order against her, People reports. "The Davis family is brokenhearted over the devastating loss of Deven Davis," says the family in a statement. "We ask that you respect their privacy." The cause of death is unknown, but TMZ reports that 39-year-old Deven had lifelong substance abuse problems and had gone to rehab six times. Jonathan, who had two children with the former porn star, doesn't hold back in his court declaration: Deven "is constantly under the influence of ... nitrous oxide, cocaine and Norco," the document reads.

Jonathan adds that when she got high, she would "routinely bring home unsavory characters, including strangers. Some of these people are random fans of my music who she allows to come into the house, go into the master bedroom closet and try on my clothes." He also accuses her of having a drug-dealer boyfriend who was recently unconscious on her sofa when Jonathan brought over the kids. Jonathan, 47, had filed for divorce in 2016 and the pair remained estranged. Deven apparently went missing from a sober home last week and hadn't been in contact with Jonathan since. Sources tell TMZ she never even saw the restraining order. (More death stories.)
