On June 6th, Andy Spade, the fashion designer’s husband and business partner, released a statement to The New York Times talking about his wife’s mental illness.

He said, “Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives.”

Andy shared that he had communicated with his wife the night before and pointed out that she sounded happy.

“There was no indication and no warning that she would do this. It was a complete shock. And it clearly wasn’t her. There were personal demons she was battling,” he added.


Andy also revealed that he had been separated with Kate for the past ten months but clarified that they never discussed getting a divorce.

“We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how. We were together for 35 years. We loved each other very much and simply needed a break,” Andy explained.

Finally, he expressed his devastation with losing his beloved wife. He shared that he and their daughter are trying their best to cope up with the loss. For more info about Kate’s death, visit our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.
