  • Kate Spade died Carol spoke out on'similar feelings in a tribute to the star

The 55-year old had hanged herself and was found by her housekeeper at her home on Park Avenue on Manhattan's Upper East Side, as reported by the New York Daily News, citing unnamed police officials.

Fashion designer Kate Spade, who was found on Tuesday after hanging herself in her NY flat, committed suicide following years of untreated depression, self-medication with alcohol and a demand for divorce from her husband, it has emerged.

Tragically, the world lost another creative mind to the ravages of clinical depression this week when Kate Spade lost her life to suicide. There was no indication and no warning that she would do this. "It was a complete shock", he said.

Cops were unclear as to why Spade, who became a fashion sensation a decade ago, would have taken her own life. "She was the kindest person I've ever known and my best friend for 35 years", Spade tells The New York Times on Wednesday.

The allegation came via email from Spade's older sister, Reta Brosnahan Saffo, who refused a phone interview because she "had taken a sedative". "She was definitely anxious about what people would say if they found out", claimed Saffo.

'We'd been together so long, I was like, "Really? We loved each other very much and simply needed a break", he said, adding that he was "appalled" that the contents of an alleged suicide note were shared with the media.

A suicide note was found at the scene, he said.

Spade also spoke of the state of their marriage.

White House silence, including about why Melania spent five days in hospital for a routine procedure, only fueled the speculation. Well, the suspense is over, because on Monday night, Melania Trump was in attendance at a Gold Star Families reception.

Kate Spade's family isn't happy with the late designer's sister speaking out about her.

Saffo said she flew to New York City and Napa several times in the past three or four years in this effort.

"I said, 'Honey, you don't just start a handbag company, '" she told NPR, "and he said, 'Why not, how hard can it be?'"

Some of those paying tribute to Spade recalled their first experience with the brand, once perceived to be a status-symbol.

There may have been other factors too; celebrity news site TMZ reports that NY law enforcement officials believe Andrew Spade had asked for a divorce prior to Kate Spade's suicide. He assured his wife that he would take care of the business and look after their 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix, known as Bea.

In his statement, Andy Spade described his wife as "the most handsome woman in the world".

"We are all devastated by today's tragedy", her family said in a statement.

If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or has had thoughts of harming themselves or taking their own life, get help.
