Lake, who was married to Evans from 2012 to 2015, reveals she divorced the jewelry designer after he started giving away her money during a manic episode, and that she even slept with him just three days before he killed himself.

It was horrific - he just wasn't the person I had been with for four years,' she said of his manic state.
