Ricki Lake's ex-husband, Christian Evans, has died.
Ricki posted notice of Christian's death, saying "he succumbed to his life long struggle with bipolar disorder."
She said: "The world didn't understand this man, but I did ... For anyone who has ever lost a family member or friend to mental illness, my heart goes out to you."
It was Ricki's second divorce. They were married for 2 1/2 years before splitting in 2015.
