Ricki Lake opened up about the tragedy of losing her ex-husband Christian Evans in a new interview.

The 50-year-old star revealed that she suffered 'true depression' after Evans killed himself in 2017 and has only recently recovered.

'It - Miracle - Side - Lake - People

'It's a miracle, but I truly feel on the other side of it,' Lake told People Magazine.

The former talk show maven shared her experience in dealing with the loss and admitted that living with her ex was a struggle as he began to exhibit signs of bipolar disorder.

Living - Dr - Jekyll - Mr - Hyde

'It was like living with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,' Lake explained. 'I wanted to save him, but I couldn't.'

Lake married Evans in 2012 and divorced in 2015 but she said stayed close with her ex in many ways.

'I - Ricki

'I was still supporting him,' Ricki said, 'financially and emotionally.'

His death two years after their divorce was an emotional blow for the actress and she struggled to cope with the loss.

'For a long time, I didn't think I'd ever feel happy again,' she admitted to the magazine.
