Debra Messing Mourns the Death of Lori Davis, the Ex-Wife of Her Former Partner Will Chase

Debra Messing is mourning the death of her former partner Will Chase‘s ex-wife Lori Davis, who she calls a member of her “chosen” family.

Lori was married to Will from 1998 to 2008 and he then dated Debra from 2011 to 2014 while they were starring in the NBC series Smash.

“I can’t believe you’re gone. No doubt, heaven has a new bright light,” Debra wrote on Instagram. “It’s not fair. You’re so good. So loving, funny, nurturing, loyal, open, optimistic, and ready to celebrate… anything.”

“Ours was a unique bond. Lori was my ex-partner’s ex-wife. Yes, that’s right. And the mother to 2 spectacular girls who I had the opportunity to fall in love with, and who became the sisters my boy never had,” she continued.

Debra wrote, “We loved each other’s children and in turn developed a beautiful friendship. We came to every school musical in Princeton, every Kidz Theatre production, we went to Broadway musicals together and she took them to Six Flags. It was special because it was entirely chosen.

Debra opened up about reconnecting with Lori recently.

“We connected recently. She wrote a personal recommendation for my boy’s application to her college alma mater. I wrote letters for both of the girls’ as well. We rooted for each other. We sent singing happy birthday videos to each other, and she helped me celebrate my 50th birthday. We were chosen family,” she said. “Many many hearts are shattered right now. Please say a prayer for her family. And remember, we are guaranteed nothing. 💔.”
