“After I’ve gotten several calls from people giving me their condolences and I didn’t know what they were talking about, I was sent this article that’s going around. I don’t know how she could have died and nobody told me or her. So I called her and asked her was she dead and she said hell no! Can whoever is responsible for this please stop you better be careful when you speak death over a child of God,” Perry said over a fake article where he slapped the word “FAKE” over it. “This woman is loved by millions and you’re hurting a lot of people. Cassi is fine living her best life with no worries, no cares, no social media, and no drama. She’s waiting to shoot the next season of House of Payne.”

Cassie Davis’s Life and career
Davis, who was born in Holly Springs, Mississippi, on July 31, 1964, studied music at Spelman College in Atlanta.

In order to finish her degree, Davis returned to Spelman in 2008, receiving her diploma in November of that year. She has stated that the primary factor in her success as a professional is her fervent, newly-found Christian faith.

She made guest appearances on Living Single, Married… with Children, Kenan & Kel, and The PJs in her early television career.

A Madea Halloween and A Madea Family Funeral.
In the TBS sitcom Tyler Perry’s House of Payne from 2007 to 2012, Davis played the character Ella Payne, for which she is most known. For her work, she was given two NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series. She starred in the Oprah Winfrey Network spinoff of House of Payne called The Paynes in 2018. A second season of House of Payne was scheduled by BET for 2020.
On January 11, 2017, Davis wed her longtime partner Kerry Patton; the two had been seeing each other since 2007. In an interview, Cassi ruled out suffering a stroke and stated that she was given a Bell’s Palsy diagnosis in March 2020.
