Kate Spade committed suicide after husband sought divorce

In a statement given to the New York Times, Andy Spade told how his fashion designer wife was seeking help for her anxiety and depression but seemed happy in the lead up to her death.

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. "We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly". "There was no indication and no warning that she would do this", he adds. "It was a complete shock", he said. And it clearly wasn't her. At one point, Saffo contends, she had come "very close" to getting Spade to agree to check into the same unnamed center where she said Catherine Zeta-Jones underwent successful treatment for bipolar disorder.

Spade was a former accessories editor at the now-closed Mademoiselle magazine before launching her namesake design company, Kate Spade New York, in 1993.

She said: "What I mean is we need to respect one another as much as you do the other people in the office because I can find myself if he's on the phone, opening his door and going, 'Hey, hey, I've got to tell you something".

"We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how", he said.

Over the years, Brosnahan and Spade appeared together on red carpets and other events as the actress' star rose. He dispelled rumours that she had any problems with alcohol or in her business life.

The sister, Reta Brosnahan Saffo, also said in an interview that Spade, 55, had become fixated on the 2014 suicide of Robin Williams.

DailyMail.com learned on Tuesday that he had been renting a $12,000-a-month apartment near the family's $2.2million Park Avenue home for a little over a year.

"There was a moment when you couldn't walk a block in NY without seeing one of her bags, which were just like her; colourful and unpretentious", Wintour said in a statement. TMZ reported that the note said: "Bea - I have always loved you".

Andrew Spade would promise to take care of their daughter, Frances Beatrix, also known as Bea, she said, while Saffo would try to buck her sister up for the trip.

Andy describes his wife as "the most attractive woman in the world", and his best friend of 35 years.

"Kate was the most lovely woman in the world". I even said I (would) go with her and be a "patient" too (she liked that idea) I said we could talk about it all - our childhood, etc. "The last person on earth you'd think would take her own life".
