Kate Spade’s shocking last words to older sister Reta

She was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety over the last five years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety.

"Our daughter was our priority", he said.

The designer was found dead in the bedroom of her Park Avenue apartment on Tuesday. "We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how". Spade, 55, addressed her daughter in the note, according to two New York Police Department sources.

Andy, 55, said he and Kate had lived separately for almost a year, but denied that either of them was seeking a divorce.

From designers Alexander McQueen and Kate Spade to actor Robin Williams, a look at tragic celebrity hanging deaths.

They sold their shares of Kate Spade New York in 2006.

Spade's statement went on to stamp out any rumors of what else may have driven his wife to take her own life.

He and his daughter are in absolute shock, and they had no idea she would do such a thing.

Reta says she'd tried to get Kate to enter a facility for treatment: "I'd flown out to Napa and NYC several times in the past 3-4 years to help her to get the treatment she needed (inpatient hospitalization)".

If someone you know exhibits warning signs of suicide, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention advises that you do not leave the person alone, call a prevention hotline, and take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional.

Since her death, further reports emerged stating she and her husband Andy, also 55, where living separately before she passed away. I'd like for her to be buried with her mother.

Kate Spade was born Katherine Brosnahan and grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. A decade later, they started a new company, Frances Valentine, which focused on shoes and handbags. We were together for 35 years.

Andy Spade said that the couple had been living apart but in the same neighborhood, caring for their 13-year-old daughter Bea. Others cited unnamed fashion industry insiders who claimed Spade had been "drinking a lot" and was dealing with business problems. "Despite Kate, sadly, not being alive anymore, her brand name and brand loyalty will continue". "Kate loved Bea so very much".
