Johnny Lewis Dead: ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Actor Had Given Slain Landlady No Reason to Fear Him, Says Her Co-Worker (EXCLUSIVE)
The 28-year-old actor — and ex of pop superstar Katy Perry — had shared the elderly woman’s Los Feliz, Calif. home before and had not been a problem, her co-worker and friend Maryann Kuk told Celebuzz.
Davis was found dead on Wednesday morning, after Lewis allegedly beat her, and her cat, to death before allegedly attacking two more people and jumping or falling to his own death.
Despite the horrific nature of the Davis’ death, Kuk said the elderly woman had not expressed any fears about her tenant.
Kuk was adamant that Lewis had not been causing Davis — whom friends called Cathy — any trouble prior to his alleged rampage.
“Not at all, He had stayed at the house before,” Kuk told Celebuzz exclusively. “I’m sure the police have a better idea [why he did this].”
Lewis had been arrested three times this year — twice for violent assaults. Yet the 81-year-old lived peacefully alongside him in her own home in the multimillion dollar neighborhood overlooking the Hollywood sign.
“She lived there as her home, and she made it home for many other people.”
For 35 years, Davis had been renting out homes — including her own — through her Housing Solutions business to give people a good start in Hollywood.
“This is devastating for all of us,” Kuk said the day after her beloved friend was killed, allegedly at Lewis’ hands. “She was the most gorgeous, beautiful and kind person I ever met, and she was a joy to work with and to know. To know her was to love her.”
Despite her age, Davis was effervescent and vibrant, her co-worker said. “She was young at heart,” Kuk said..” On her 80th birthday party, it was quite something. A lot of people who had come through [the homes] came.”
Davis leaves behind a daughter, her daughter’s long-term partner, their child and a sister, Kuk said.
