Kate Spade's friend, Cornelia Guest, is speaking out. As we reported, the handbag designer was found in her New York apartment on Tuesday after she reportedly hung herself.

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. 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.

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.”.....»»

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.

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.
