Ricki Lake has filed for divorce from her husband of two years, Christian Evans.
Lake reportedly kicked Christian out of their home and he is said to be living in his car, after he asked to have an open marriage.
The former talk show host filed the court documents on Oct. 16, stating that the couple legally separated October 9.
The 46-year-old has reportedly agreed to pay her husband of two-and-a-half years spousal support.
Ricki and Christian did not have a prenuptial agreement, but the couple wrote an agreement on dividing up their property.
Lake kicked the jewelry designer out of their Los Angeles home earlier this month.
The insider said, “Ricki took issue with a sudden trip Christian took to Ibiza last month, alone. And he didn’t call her on her birthday. She is devastated. Completely devastated.”
Evans has been seeking shelter in his vehicle since he was kicked out of their home.
A friend of the couple stated, “He has no money left and is living in his car, on his way to a homeless shelter outside of California. Christian has been diagnosed as bipolar and everyone is really concerned for his health right now.”
Another insider revealed Lake decided to end their relationship after Christian allegedly requested to have an “open marriage.”
The source said, “When he said that he wanted an open marriage, he did not really mean he wanted to sleep around or even open up the relationship sexually. He was just really tired of being in a marriage that was lopsided and controlled by her money and he wanted to be in a loving marriage where they each had their own lives and could do and experience their own things. He still loves her very much.”
Ricki and Christian eloped in April 2012, tying the knot on a California beach with just their dogs as guests.
Just last month, Ricki shared a photo of “the love of her life”.
Lake was previously married to artist Rob Sussman from 1993 to 2003. The couple have two children, Milo, 14, and Owen, 12.
