In an emotional Instagram post, Ricki Lake announced that ex-husband Christian Evans has died. The pair were married from 2012-2015, and Evans struggled with bipolar disorder.

“It is with a heavy heart that I share that my beloved soulmate, Christian Evans has passed,” Lake wrote alongside a photo of she and Evans in happier times. “The world didn’t understand this man, but I did… 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.”

Lake met jewelry designer Evans in 2010 through a mutual friend.
