Designer Kate Spade suffered depression for years, husband says


"We were freaked out/saddened but she kept watching it and watching it over and over". She claims Spade was "fixated" when the news broke of Robin Williams' suicide in 2014, and she thinks she had a plan in motion back then. Her sister said in an e-mail to CBS This Morning that she believed Spade suffered from bi-polar disorder.

"My mom was one of the people that found her", Mark Roldan told press. Saffo told the Kansas City Star.

Spade seemingly had everything: fortune, fame, and family. No matter how successful you may be, depression doesn't care.

But Saffo makes it sound as though she and her sister weren't estranged at all, and that they had been in regular phone contact - up six to seven hours at a time.

She took the Jitney, a well-known bus which shuttles Manhattanites to the Long Island enclave, and met Andy in Southampton where he had a bottle of champagne on ice. So pretty. I dont think everyone knew how [expletive] amusing she was... "She was so sharp and quick on her feet", he said. "She had a quirky visual language that captivated Bat Mitzvah girls and artists alike", wrote actress Lena Dunham on Twitter.

"People around me have said I've inherited little pieces of Katy's style", she told WWD in 2016. So pretty. I dont think everyone knew how f**king amusing she was...

While The Blast said David Spade's brother was looking for a new one- or two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan because of marital issues, TMZ added that Andy wanted a divorce, and had already been living separately before Kate's passing. The designer left a suicide note addressed to her 13-year-old daughter, telling her it was not her fault.

The company she founded and later sold, Kate Spade New York, now has over 140 retail shops and outlet stores across the USA and more than 175 shops internationally. She called them her "stepping stones" - and said years later that they were still her favorites. However, it appears he was at the apartment when Spade's body was discovered.

Can Trump Pardon Himself? Not if He’s Impeached
The legal issues aren't entirely settled because no past presidents have ever tried to or asserted they can pardon themselves. When asked, Lee declined to speculate about the motivations of Trump or his legal team in bringing up the pardon power.


Together they opened up Kate Spade New York, which initially produced handbags but blossomed into a full-on fashion house featuring Kate's signature bright colours and jazzy prints. The company later expanded to sell clothing, accessories and household items. The couple chose to sell the business in 2006 to devote their time to raising Frances. As the shocking news spread, Bravolebs took to social media to speak out about the death and what the designer and brand meant to them.

There may have been other factors too; celebrity news site TMZ reports that NY law enforcement officials believe Andrew Spade had asked for a divorce prior to Kate Spade's suicide.

Saffo also released a statement where she wrote that Spade was a precious person and genuine in every way. She had hanged herself with a scarf tied to a doorknob.
