Also spotted coming and going from the apartment were Judy Spade - mother to Andy and actor David Spade - as well as Kate's business partner Elyce Arons and Bella Cariaga, the housekeeper who discovered the body of her "best friend" Kate.

"And it clearly wasn't her".

As we reported, Kate Spade died this week after taking her own life in her New York City apartment. "We were co-parenting our handsome daughter", he stressed.

"For people who think they know, you'll never know", she said through tears.

Designer Kate Spade, one of the biggest names in American fashion known especially for her sleek handbags, was found dead on 5 June 2018 in her NY apartment. She was the kindest person I've ever known and my best friend for 35 years. "I have yet to see any note left behind and am appalled that a private message to my daughter has been so heartlessly shared with the media", the statement concluded.

He said he and his wife had been living separately for the past 10 months but saw each other or spoke every day.


Andy Spade called his wife the kindest person he knew and said he can not fathom life without her. According to reports, the famed fashion designer fell into a deep depression after her husband Andy, right, moved out of their home and sought a divorce. "Kate loved Bea so very much".

Spade was born in Kansas City, MO, in 1962, and she attended the University of Kansas before transferring to Arizona State University.

She was working as an accessories editor at Mademoiselle magazine when she launched her company with husband Andy in their NY apartment in 1993. The husband-and-wife duo parted ways with their successful company in 2007, after selling to Liz Claiborne Inc.

"She had a light that words can't capture but touched everyone she came into contact with", Brosnahan wrote on Instagram alongside a video of the designer dancing with Andy Spade.

Since then, numerous reports have surfaced surrounding her death, including speculation about her battle with mental illness, alleged marital problems, and a reported suicide note addressed to the couple's 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix. Over a decade ago, she sold the business and later launched a luxury line Frances Valentine.

Kate Spade was known for her colourful designs.

On behalf of the CFDA, CEO Steven Kolb and designer Diane von Furstenberg released a statement to say they felt "devastated".
