Kate Spade Wouldn't Treat Bipolar Disorder, Sister Says

Kate Spade death Carol Vorderman said she had'similar feelings

Designer Kate Spade, who committed suicide in NY this week, had been treated for depression and anxiety for five years, her husband said yesterday. The New York Times reports that Spade left a note for her 13-year-old daughter, saying that what happened was not the teen's fault.

TMZ reported that Spade was found dead Tuesday in her NYC apartment by her housekeeper, who found her tied to a closet doorknob with a red scarf.

Andy has since spoken out in a statement to The New York Times, revealing that he and Kate had been living separately for the last 10 months, but "never even discussed divorce". There was no substance or alcohol abuse.

In a statement Tuesday, a rep for the brand-which Spade sold a majority share of to Neiman Marcus back in 1999-said their founder would be "dearly missed".

According to People, a police source said she left a note which suggested to officers it was a "tragic suicide".

"She was definitely anxious about what people would say if they found out", Saffo tells the newspaper via email.

"I, personally - I don't know about Andy - took off a good 9 years raising my daughter, and absolutely adored every moment of it", said Spade.

Andy Spade said his wife Kate was seeking help for anxiety and depression in the lead up to her death.

Following news of Spade's death, shoppers quickly turned to Frances Valentine - her handbag-and-shoe company - to buy the late designer's final creations.

"She had a light that words can't capture but touched everyone she came into contact with", Brosnahan wrote on Instagram.

The couple founded Kate Spade New York after the Kansas City, Missouri native, saw an untapped market for stylish handbags without a steep price tag and opened her first SoHo boutique in 1993. "My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can't even begin to fathom life without her", he writes. "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break", Andy Spade added. Her brother-in-law, actor David Spade, tweeted a picture of her a book signing and he said 'I love this pic of her, so pretty.

She added that sometimes you can't save people from themselves, and the stress and pressure of her empire led to Spade becoming manic-depressive (Doctors used to use the term to describe bipolar disorder). Multiple sources told Us that Kate and Andy, 55, had separated before her death. She was the kindest person I've ever known and my best friend for 35 years.
