Kate Spade's husband reveals marriage troubles after designer's death

Kate Spade had anxiety and depression for years, he said.

According to a report from the New York Times, Andy Spade related how his wife had dealt with anxiety at various times during their relationship, but it was only six years ago when Kate had "serious bouts" of depression.

"Her family said in a statement, "we are all devastated." and.We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly". "There was no indication and no warning that she would do this".

He said her death was a "complete shock". "... it clearly wasn't her". Saffo said her sister had been deeply affected by the suicide of comedian Robin Williams, who hanged himself in 2014.

Andy said that the two lived near each other, spoke or saw each other daily, and continued to take vacations together. She was the kindest person I've ever known and my best friend for 35 years.

Andy Spade called his wife the kindest person he knew and said he can not fathom life without her.

In the same statement to the Daily News, Saffo said Spade was ready to get help, but was also anxious about the image of her brand if she did.

Reta Saffo, Spade's older sister, told CBS News that she believes the 55-year-old was suffering from bipolar disorder.

The designer was found dead in her home on June 5th.

On Wednesday, the designer's husband, Andy Spade, released a statement saying that Kate was struggling with depression.

Mr Spade said his late wife had not left a note and he was "appalled" that a private message to their daughter had been "so heartlessly shared with the media".

Saffo wrote in an email to the Star, painting a very different picture of a woman who made her brand in the "happy-go-lucky" image of herself that many have paid tribute to in the 24 hours since Spade's death.

The Kate Spade New York brand launched in 1993 and quickly grew to include more than 140 physical retail locations across the U.S. The idea for it all, Spade revealed to NPR in 2017, came together during a random dinner at a Mexican restaurant.

She also highlighted reports that Spade left her 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix, a note telling her the death was not her fault. But one police source, who didn't want to be identified, said Spade and her husband appeared to have been in the midst of marital problems. We were coparenting our handsome daughter.
