Kate Spade Dead At 55

Kate Spade Dead At 55

"We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly", Spade's family said in a statement released to the New York Daily News earlier this week.

Kate Spade, left, hanged herself in her Park Avenue home on Tuesday morning. Their daughter, Frances Beatrix, who spent time with each of them, was with Andy when her mother died, the Times reported.

He said she "sounded happy" the night before her death, and added that his priority is caring for their daughter as she deals with her "unimaginable grief".

He also shares that Kate was actively seeking help for her depression and anxiety for the last five years, and was proactive about seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication to treat her symptoms.

In the statement, Andy explained that although they had been living separately for the past 10 months, they spoke or saw each other every day and co-parented their daughter together. I even said I (would) go with her and be a "patient" too (she liked that idea) I said we could talk about it all - our childhood, etc.

‘You’re all talk’: Kathy Griffin slams Ivanka Trump over Kate Spade tweet
Medical examiner vehicles park outside the front entrance to the Park Avenue apartment of designer Kate Spade in NY , U.S. Kate Spade's husband, Andy Spade , has issued a statement following the death of the fashion designer on Tuesday.

Spade - a Missouri native who first worked as a journalist, including a stint as accessories editor at Mademoiselle magazine - launched her Kate Spade fashion label in 1993 with her husband Andy and the help of outside investors.

He said there were "personal demons she was battling". The fashion designer's sister claimed the 55-year-old would repeatedly watch news coverage of the actor's suicide. My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can't even begin to fathom life without her.

"We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how", he said. We loved creating our businesses together.

He stressed that Kate had not been abusing any substances or alcohol, nor had there been any business problems. And she changed her name to Katherine Noel Frances Valentine Brosnahan Spade. "Kate loved Bea so very much". "We were co-parenting our lovely daughter", he stressed. While he hasn't seen a note, Andy says he's appalled that a private message to their daughter was "heartlessly shared with the media".

Kate Spade was known for her colourful designs. But it is sad and very hurtful, given the pain the family is enduring, that people with no real knowledge of the situation are leaking false, speculative information that maligns Kate's character and belittles the health issues she bravely fought.
