Ricki Lake’s marriage is over. The star has filed for divorce from Christian Evans after less than three years of marriage.

Lake’s divorce petition is dated October 16, though she says they separated a week prior, on October 9. She cites irreconcilable differences, and notes that she will pay Evans, a jewelry designer, spousal support. The documents also indicate that there is some kind of prenuptial agreement for the division of property, according to TMZ.

As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Lake and Evans eloped in April of 2012. They had become engaged the previous August. The relationship, however, dates back to 2009.

This will be Lake’s second divorce. She was previously wed to Rob Sussman, whom she split from in 2003, though their divorce wasn’t finalized until 2005. Lake and Sussman are the parents of two sons, Milo and Owen.

After Lake and Evans wed, the former talk show host gushed in a People interview, “I didn’t think it would happen at this point in my life… We just clicked. It just feels like he was the right one all along.”

Gossip Cop is sorry to hear the marriage did not work out.
