Kate Spade's Father Breaks Silence on Designer's Tragic Death

This same source also said that Andy was "shook up" after his partner's death, and anxious about the impact her passing might have on their daughter.

"She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives", Spade said in a statement to The New York Times.

Andy explained how the esteemed accessory designer had been "actively seeking" help for her mental health issues in the past five years and had been taking medication for both depression and anxiety.

Andy Spade said that he and his daughter Bea were "devastated by her loss, and can't even begin to fathom life without her". And it clearly wasn't her.

Andy Spade, Kate's husband of 24 years and business partner, addressed his partner's passing in a statement which he released on Wednesday in which he admitted she had "personal demons" she was trying to beat, which included her ongoing battle with bipolar.

Law enforcement sources told the Associated Press she appeared to have died from a suicide, and she left behind a note. "But we certainly miss our bright, sun-shiney little person".

Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand past year for $2.4 billion. She was 55 years old.

Spade and her husband, Andy Spade, were living apart for the past six months, fashion industry insiders told Page Six.

Bea was living with both of us and we saw each other or spoke every day. "We ate many meals together as a family and continued to vacation together as a family".

"We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce", he added.

Federal health officials said on Thursday that U.S. suicides had risen by 30% since 1999, and presents a "growing public health problem". We loved creating our businesses together.

Andy Spade says his main concern is protecting Frances Beatrix's privacy as she deals with "unimaginable grief". "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break". "Kate loved Bea so very much".

"The family is disgusted and saddened that at this time of great sorrow, Kate's sister who has been estranged from the entire family for more than 10 years would choose to surface with unsubstantiated comments", the family said in a statement, reported People.

Kate Spade was born Katherine Brosnahan and grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. Over a decade ago, she sold the business and later launched a luxury line Frances Valentine.
