Jonathan Davis lost his estranged wife on Friday and now the Korn frontman is speaking out for the first time since her death. Davis shared a message on Instagram Wednesday night, blaming mental illness which led to her addiction and is to blame for her death, the cause of which is still unknown.
“Over the past decade, my wife has been very very sick. She had a serious mental illness and her addiction was a side effect. I loved her with ALL of my being.”
Korn’s lead singer says that Deven is the reason why he so passionately advocates for people struggling with mental illness and he hopes her story will help inspire change.
We send him and the family our thoughts and prayers in their time of sadness. As always, if you or someone you know needs help, there is always someone out there: Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255 or Crisis Text Line: Text TALK to 741741
