Ricki Lake announces death of ex-husband Christian Evans via Instagram

Ricki Lake has announced to the world via social media the passing of her ex-husband.

The former talk show host and Hairspray! star took to Instagram to announce her former husband, Christian Evans, has passed away. Evans struggled with bipolar disorder and although Lake blamed that illness for his death, the exact cause is unknown at this time.

"It is with a heavy heart that I share that my beloved soulmate, Christian Evans has passed," Lake captioned a photo of them smiling at one another. "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."

Lake and  jewelry designer divorced in 2014, ending their two-year marriage due to "irreconcilable differences." However, Lake still referred to him as her "soulmate" in the touching post.
