Kate Spade"s Family "Disgusted" With Her Sister For Claims About The Designer"s "Not Unexpected" Suicide

Kate Spade's family members seem to have much different impressions of the late designer in the wake of her apparent suicide.

As we reported, Kate's older sister Reta Brosnahan made statements to multiple outlets saying her sister's suicide was "not unexpected" by her as she believed Kate suffered from mental illness for several years. Related: Kate & Husband Andy Were Reportedly Having "Relationship Problems" But a source close to the family says Reta doesn't know what she's talking about, because she's been estranged from her sister for over a decade. The insider explained People: "The family is disgusted and saddened that at this time of great sorrow, Kate's sister who has been estranged from the entire family for more than 10 years would choose to surface with unsubstantiated comments. Her statements paint a picture of someone who didn't know her at all." Did they though? In her emails, Reta said she spoke with Kate on the phone for "6 to 7 hours" on end prior to her death, claiming she had suffered "three to four years of mental illness" and "chickened out" from multiple attempts to seek treatment. Related: Kanye West On Being Diagnosed With A "Mental Condition" At 39 While the source described Kate as a "kind, generous, funny, warm and extremely private person," Reta claimed her late sister was "concerned how hospitalization might harm the image of the happy-go-lucky Kate Spade brand," and had "eventually became full-on manic depressive" due to the "stress and pressure" of her brand. Who do U think is telling the truth here? Either way, mental illness is serious and those suffering from depression can't be afraid to talk about it! You CAN overcome it!

According to new reports, the fashion designer and her husband Andy Spade (David Spade's brother) were having "relationship problems" prior to the 55-year-old's apparent suicide -- with sources saying Andy had been apartment shopping in NYC. As you know, the couple shared 13-year-old daughter Frances Beatrix. Related: David Spade Mourns Kate's Death The Blast reports Andy had been looking for a new one or two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan because of marital issues. TMZ adds that Andy was wanting a divorce, and had already been living separately before Kate's passing. It's said Kate did not want to break up. As was suggested by Kate's older sister Reta Saffo yesterday, the handbag designer self-medicated with alcohol while suffering from mental illness for the last three or four years. TMZ reports that law enforcement sources have said business problems and the separation from Andy were causing Kate to drink even more. The new report also goes against initial reporting by saying Andy was not in the family's Park Avenue home at the time of Kate's death. Andy told police that he was at his own nearby apartment, and that Kate "was drinking a lot." Just a devastating situation. We'll keep you posted, as we're sure more information will come out soon.

Kate Spade"s Sister Says The Designer Suffered From Years Of Mental Illness; Reported Suicide "Not Unexpected"

In an email to the Kansas City Star on Tuesday, Kate Spade's older sister — Reta Saffo — says the handbag designer suffered from mental illness for the last three or four years, and says her reported suicide "was not unexpected by me." As we reported, the fashion legend was found in her New York apartment [...] In an email to the Kansas City Star on Tuesday, Kate Spade's older sister -- Reta Saffo -- says the handbag designer suffered from mental illness for the last three or four years, and says her reported suicide "was not unexpected by me." As we reported, the fashion legend was found in her New York apartment by a housekeeper at 10:30 a.m. EST, after she reportedly hung herself. The 55-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. Related: Stars We Lost In 2018 According to Saffo, Spade reportedly self-medicated with alcohol, and seemed fixated on Robin Williams' suicide by hanging when it happened in August 2014. She told the newspaper: "I think there was a plan even as far back as then." After the publication posted a story about Spade's death, Saffo emailed the Star saying they misspelled Kate's childhood nickname, Katy. Although she was asked to do a phone interview, Saffo declined because she reportedly took a sedative. (She noted that her husband is a medical doctor.) In the email, Saffo said she tried to get Kate into treatment, but the designer "chickened out" as she was worried with how her hospitalization might affect the image of her brand. "I will say this was not unexpected by me. I'd flown out to Napa and NYC several times in the past 3-4 years to help her to get the treatment she needed (inpatient hospitalization). She was always a very excitable little girl and I felt all the stress/pressure of her brand (KS) may have flipped the switch where she eventually became full-on manic depressive... I'd come so VERY close to getting her to go in for treatment (to the same place Catherine Zeta-Jones went for her successful bipolar treatment program). I'd spoken with them on the phone (not telling them exactly who the patient would be). They agreed to fly in and talk with her and take her with them to the treatment center... She was all set to go — but then chickened out by morning. I even said I (would) go with her and be a 'patient' too (she liked that idea) I said we could talk about it all — our childhood, etc. That I could help her fill in any blanks she might have... That seemed to make her more comfortable, and we'd get sooo close to packing her bags, but — in the end, the 'image' of her brand (happy-go-lucky Kate Spade) was more important for her to keep up. She was definitely worried about what people would say if they found out."' Although her husband Andy Spade reportedly tried to persuade Kate to seek help, "nothing ever came of it." After numerous failed attempts, Saffo ultimately stopped trying. "After numerous attempts, I finally let go... Sometimes you simply cannot SAVE people from themselves! One of the last things she said to me was, 'Reta, I know you hate funerals and don't attend them, but for me would you PLEASE come to MINE, at least. Please!' I know she perhaps had a plan, but she insisted she did not."' In regards to Robin Williams' death, Saffo said Kate heard about his passing at a hotel in Santa Fe. "We were freaked out/saddened... but she kept watching it and watching it over and over. I think the plan was already in motion even as far back as then." Saffo ended her email remembering her "kind" and "funny" younger sister. "She was a dear little person. So dear — so kind, so funny. I'll miss our 6-7-hr-long phone conversations between NY and NM... I'm off to bed for a good cry." If you or someone you know are experiencing thoughts of suicide or self harm, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 and know that you are not alone.

Kanye West On Being Diagnosed With A "Mental Condition" At 39: "It"s A Superpower"

Kanye West is here to make mental illness cool again! The rapper opened up about living with what he calls a "mental condition" in a recent interview with Big Boy TV, explaining how his eighth studio album gave him a platform to change people's perceptions about mental illness. Related: Kanye Says Beef Between Drake & Pusha T [...] Kanye West is here to make mental illness cool again! The rapper opened up about living with what he calls a "mental condition" in a recent interview with Big Boy TV, explaining how his eighth studio album gave him a platform to change people's perceptions about mental illness. Related: Kanye Says Beef Between Drake & Pusha T Is "Dead Now" Because while the rest of us may see depression or bipolar disorder as debilitating conditions that require constant care, Kanye sees them as superpowers -- or... at least that's how he sees his own mental state: "I had never been diagnosed [with a ‘mental condition'] 'til I was like 39 years old...I think everybody got something. But, like I said on the album, it's not a disability, it's a superpower." 'Ye definitely embraced this diagnosis on the new album, aptly titled ye. On the track Yikes, he rapped: "That's my bipolar shit, n***a what/That's my superpower, n***a ain't no disability/I'm a superhero! I'm a superhero!" For the record, Kanye never specified if he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. In the interview, he said he was diagnosed with a "mental condition." Photos: North West & Penelope Disick Have Joint Unicorn-Themed Birthday Bash! But before you go thinking Yeezy's just exploiting mental illness to sell some records, the 40-year-old said his eighth studio album is supposed to be an outlet for others struggling with similar conditions. He continued, bringing up his controversial comments about slavery: "Think about people that have mental issues that are not Kanye West, that can't go and make that and make it feel like it's all good. Think about somebody that does exactly what I did at TMZ and they just do that at work, but then Tuesday morning they come in, they lost their job and they can't go back and make that. That's why God put that on me at age 40." So fear not, people suffering from mental issues! You no longer have to hold in your possibly problematic thoughts because you can listen to Kanye's instead! As for his crazy thoughts, like when he mused about slavery being a choice in that explosive TMZ interview, Kanye said he knows the world will forgive him because we're all one big universal "family": "I feel like as a son and as a family member of the world and that's the reason why the world won't let me go because I'm just a family member. They might disagree with me on certain shit, but I'm they family. I've been here for 15 years, 18 years and I feel like the best thing I can do is sit there and go in that studio and keep chopping that thing that only I know how to do and only me and my crew know how to do." We guess every family has its bipolar superhero? Watch Uncle Yé's full interview (below). [Image via Disney/WENN.].....»»

As we reported, Kate Spade died this week after taking her own life in her New York City apartment. On Wednesday, her father Frank Brosnahan spoke with the Kansas City Star to shed light on the designer's battle with mental illness. The nearly 90-year-old told the outlet: "She'd been taking some pills, which I advised her not to take." Related: Kate Spade's Husband Calls Suicide 'A Complete Shock' Frank went on to say that he last spoke with his daughter on Monday night and everything seemed normal at that time: "Well, I don't know what happened. The last I talked with her, the night before last, she was happy planning a trip to California to look at colleges. She doted on her daughter." As you know, Kate left behind her 13-year-old daughter with Andy Spade, Frances Beatrix. Frank also mentioned that he is hoping his daughter' body will be laid to rest alongside his late wife's back home in Kansas City: "At least that's what I would like. I'd like for her to be buried with her mother. They were very close." As for what comes of Kate's unfortunate passing, Frank is hoping it at least starts a conversation about mental health: "One thing we feel is that any talk that they do that helps somebody else, Katy would have liked that. She was always giving and charitable. If that helped anybody avoid anything — fine, she'd be delighted." When asked about the rest of his family, Frank said: "I think they're all right. We're a large family and all close. We'll get through it. But we certainly miss our bright, sun-shiney little person." Ugh. Our hearts just hurt for him. Sending all our love.

The actor got candid about his history with mental illness on Marc Maron's WTF podcast, revealing he's dealt with anxiety, self-hatred, mania -- and was even diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 25 years old after being committed to a mental asylum. The 43-year-old explained that his Catholic roots combined with being sober after years of substance abuse made him believe he was "in connection to some sort of God that I wasn't really in connection to." Insisting he wasn't on drugs at the time, Harbour confessed he had "a capacity to see ‘the elves' in the corners of the room if I really allow myself to go there" -- so, his parents took him into a "mental asylum" where he was diagnosed as bipolar. The actor then got real about how depressing being locked up in such an institution was, adding "it just ends up being sad and smells like shit." Harbour may be the only celeb (besides Kanye West) to think he's been in communication with God, but he's far from the first star to get candid about mental health...

As we reported, the handbag designer was found in her New York apartment on Tuesday after she reportedly hung herself. The 55-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. Related: Stars We Lost In 2018 Later reports came out that before her sudden death, the fashion legend and husband Andy Spade were having "relationship problems." While The Blast said David Spade's brother was looking for a new one- or two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan because of marital issues, TMZ added that Andy wanted a divorce, and had already been living separately before Kate's passing. It's said Kate did not want to break up. In a People article published on Wednesday, Guest -- actress and longtime family friend -- told the publication that she never witnessed any such discord between the two. She revealed: "They seemed to be the perfect, happy family... Nobody knows what's going on with someone. When the doors close, you never know." According to Guest, Kate and Andy were "a very social couple," primarily for the sake of their business. "I knew her from being in New York for years and years... We saw each other all the time. They were a very social couple, but you have to go out for business, of course. It's a rat race. You don't create a brand like that sitting on your ass. It's her name on the door, no matter who you are working for." Guest also said the fashionista had a very loving relationship with her 13-year-old daughter Frances Beatrix: "They were so close. She was just a cute little girl." Overall, Cornelia remembers the Kate Spade New York co-founder as "beautiful and elegant and charming." "It's so sad. She was beautiful and elegant and charming. She stayed true to form. She was always smiling, always happy, she had beautiful manners, and she always looked beautiful." She adds: "Every girl wanted to have a piece of Kate Spade. She was such an inspiration. It was aspirational and charming and whimsical and elegant. I still saw her around after the sale of her brand. Any time you create something like that, it's got to be hard to step away. She was always creating." Kate will be missed.

The 55-year-old entrepreneur, who co-founded the brand Kate Spade with his wife, issued the statement on Wednesday (June 6). “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,” he wrote. “We were in touch with her the night before and 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.” Our thoughts are with Kate‘s family. Read the full statement below, via Variety. “Kate was the most beautiful woman in the world. She was the kindest person I’ve ever known and my best friend for 35 years. My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can’t even begin to fathom life without her. We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already. 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. We were in touch with her the night before and 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. For the past 10 months we had been living separately, but within a few blocks of each other. Bea was living with both of us and we saw each other or spoke every day. We ate many meals together as a family and continued to vacation together as a family. Our daughter was our priority. We were not legally separated, and never even discussed 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. This is the truth. Anything else that is out there right now is false. She was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety over the last 5 years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety. There was no substance or alcohol abuse. There were no business problems. We loved creating our businesses together. We were co-parenting our beautiful daughter. 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. My main concern is Bea and protecting her privacy as she deals with the unimaginable grief of losing her mother. Kate loved Bea so very much.”.....»»
