Deven died this past Friday (Aug. 17). A press statement confirmed her passing, which read, "The Davis family is brokenhearted over the devastating loss of Deven Davis. 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."
TMZ reports that Jonathan Davis filed for divorce from Deven in 2016, and that he filed a domestic violence restraining order against her on Friday (Aug. 17). It reportedly would have blocked her from custody of their children, as well as visitation privileges. An official cause of death has yet to be revealed. She was 39 years old.
