Kate Spade 'Obsessed' Over Robin Williams' Death

Kate Spade 'Obsessed' Over Robin Williams' Death

Contrary to some media reports, Spade said "she was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety for the last five years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety". Our daughter was our priority.

Her daughter is only thirteen years old and just lost her mother.

The fashion designer was tragically found dead by her housekeeper at her Park Avenue apartment on Tuesday at the age of 55. "This thing better work", she said in the interview.

Celebrity news website TMZ cited police sources as saying Spade had fallen into depression in recent weeks after her husband left her and was seeking divorce.

Kate's husband also confirmed they were living apart as they "simply needed a break", but said they had never talked about divorce.

Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand past year for $2.4 billion.

As the media coverage of Kate Spade's apparent suicide is showing no signs of subsiding, one of the designer's brothers, Earl Brosnahan, issued a statement Thursday thanking the torrent of strength people have provided and took aim at erroneous leaks to the media.

It's the latest in a series of revelations about Facebook's privacy lapses. The bug affected as many as 14 million people, the company said.

Kate sold her original company in 2007 and took some time off to raise her daughter, Frances Valentine but announced her return to fashion with a brand affectionately named after her little girl.

It was reported that Kate Spade had separated from Andy Spade after 24 years of marriage and reportedly said in a note addressed to their 13-year-old daughter, "Bea - I have always loved you".

Brosnahan told the Star that Spade would be "delighted" if she knew her death inspired a national discussion that might help people struggling with mental illness. He also said his daughter would be glad if ongoing, global talk about her death were to have a positive impact.

Spade's husband and business partner, Andy Spade, said in a statement on Wednesday that his wife had "suffered from depression and anxiety for many years".

"There was a moment when you couldn't walk a block in NY without seeing one of her bags, which were just like her; colorful and unpretentious", Wintour said in a statement. "We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly". We loved creating our businesses together.

"For the past 10 months we had been living separately, but within a few blocks of each other", he said. Arons, who worked with both Kate and Andy Spade during the period they were separating, said they continued to work well together.
