Kate Spade 'Obsessed' Over Robin Williams' Death

"Kate really removed herself from society, from NY, from the fashion world, and she really just focused, I think, on being a mom", he told EXTRA in an interview on Wednesday, adding that despite invitations to lavish events like the Met Gala, she chose not to attend. "She was exceedingly kind, beautifully sensitive, insanely talented, amusing as heck and one of the most generous people I have ever known".

Andy Spade says the fashion designer "suffered from depression" and was "actively seeking help". "We should all remember the beauty and joy that Kate brought to this world". "They never really gave her much respect... the public loved her, but the critics didn't, and it always hurt her". There was no indication and no warning that she would do this.

He appeared to confirm the cause of death as suicide in his statement, which was obtained by the Mirror, recalling: "We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy".

Kate Spade arrives at 2007 7th on Sale Black-tie Gala Dinner at the 69th Regiment Armory on November 15, 2007 in New York City. "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break".

The despondent 55-year-old fashion designer did not want her 24-year marriage to Andrew to end, TMZ reported, citing law enforcement sources.

Shuter says Spade and her husband Andy "didn't spend a lot of time together" and that they may have been living apart.

The Portland Press-Herald reported that Parkhurst confessed five years ago to a 1968 hit-and-run that left a 4-year-old girl dead. In 2012, after Johnson had retired from law enforcement, he wrote a post on Facebook about the unsolved 1968 homicide.

He did not specify a particular condition, but said she had been seeing a doctor and taking medication and did not use other substances or alcohol. "So, I really hope that the family can come together for her daughter because it just doesn't go away". "There were no business problems".

Andy Spade said his main concern is protecting their 13-year-old daughter's privacy as she deals with "unimaginable grief".

Kate and Andy were married in 1994, one year after founding her eponymous brand, famous for its handbags and accessories.

Asked why she wanted to get back into the industry, the Spades told Business of Fashion that they thought it would be good for their daughter "to see her mother work". And she changed her name to Katherine Noel Frances Valentine Brosnahan Spade.

But shortly after Frances Beatrix's birth in 2005, the couple sold Kate Spade New York to concentrate on raising their daughter.
