Ricki Lake believes that her late ex-husband is responsible for sending her the “new love” in her life. Christian Evans, whom the former talk show host was married to from 2012-2015, commuted suicide in 2017. Although he and Ricki split, they remained close friends.

This guy. It was his birthday a week ago. He means a lot to me. Just when I thought I would never find another beautiful soul to love…. @jeffscult has more integrity than anyone I’ve ever known. He is kind and present and doesn’t do small talk. He is funny, a wordsmith, a floet, a world traveler, and pretty much always up for anything. Jeff is deeply curious about humans and genuinely wants to hear everyone’s story, to find out what makes them golden. Literally Everyone. Jeff sees the good in all, while helping everyone to see the very best in themselves. He is also doing something important. Like really important. Changing the way we see and use fashion. @onegoldenthread is jeff’s life’s work, a yummy, eco-friendly for-benefit collection of clothing pieces that have truly made my life and so many others better. I believe in him and what he is doing to help our planet 🌎. I am so grateful our paths crossed at this time, and for however long we are aligned. No expectation on duration, a wise man once said. 😉 Happy belated Birthday Dear Jeff. I love you. 💕
While appearing on the United Kingdom’s “Loose Women,” Ricki gushed about her new man, Jeffrey Scult. In fact, she believes that her former husband somehow sent Jeffrey to her.
“I absolutely believe it because they are very similar,” she said. “I definitely have a type but I do believe he wants me to find love again he doesn’t want me alone, I want to believe he had a hand in introducing me. He helped me to meet this new love in my life – not so new, our one year anniversary is next week.”
