Ricki Lake took to social media to pay tribute to her late ex-husband, Christian Evans.
In the touching message, the former talk show host said Christian “succumbed to his life long struggle with bipolar disorder.”
It is with a heavy heart that I share that my beloved soulmate, Christian Evans has passed. The world didn’t understand this man, but I did. He succumbed to his life long struggle with bipolar disorder. For anyone who has ever lost a family member or friend to mental illness, my heart goes out to you. I am a greater person for having known him and spent the past 6 and a half years of my life with him. He was a man of love and what mends my broken heart today is knowing that he is finally at peace and his spirit is free. Rest in peace, my love.
Ricki Lake and Christian Evans tied the knot in 2012 and she filed for divorce two years later.
My condolences to Ricki and the Evans family.
