TV star files for divorce after two years of marriage

Things are all over for presenter Ricki Lake and her husband Christian Evans, according to reports.

The TV personality filed for divorce earlier this month after two and a half years of marriage.

Ricki and Christian met in 2010 and got engaged the following year. In April 2012, the couple eloped in a secret ceremony in southern California.

In an unusual move for a divorce settlement, Ricki has agreed to pay "spousal support" to Christian, although the couple have no children together. The pair have been legally separated for the last three weeks.

The divorce news may come as a shock to Ricki's fans and followers – just two months ago she posted this sweet picture to Instagram with the caption: "My love and me."

This will be Ricki's second divorce – she was married to bartender Rob Sussman from 1994 to 2005. The former couple have two children together, 17-year-old Milo and 13-year-old Owen.

Since her second chat show was cancelled in 2012, Ricki has appeared on Dancing With The Stars and in a number of documentaries.
