“I found love again,“ Lake shared at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Wednesday, according to People. “My husband, who passed from mental illness and suicide, it’ll be two years ago on February 11. And I just recently found a brilliant new love.”
Lake has been dating Jeff Scult, who founded the fashion brand One Golden Thread. They’ve even shared a few snaps together on social media. Last week, she posted a selfie with her new beau gentleman saying, “This is what happy looks like.”
At the event, Lake couldn’t contain her joy. “He’s making me really happy. We’ve been together for a three-and-a-half months. We met through a mutual friend.”
At the time of Evans’ death, Lake said, “The world didn’t understand this man, but I did. He succumbed to his life long struggle with bipolar disorder.”
Lake and Evans split in 2014 after three years of marriage. His ashes were scattered in Ibiza.
