Andy Spade, the husband of Kate Spade, has released a statement following the designer’s suicide.

Kate Spade was found dead in her home on the morning of June 5, 2018, from what police have characterized as a suicide. She had hanged herself with a scarf tied to a doorknob. There was a note beside her, addressed to her daughter.

Kate’s sister and husband say that she had been suffering from mental illness for years, and Andy admits that they had been living apart for 10 months. There had been no plans for divorce.

Speaking publicly for the first time since her death, Andy said that his wife had suffered from depression and anxiety and was being treated by a doctor for the past five years. She was also taking medication for the condition. According to Andy, there was no drug or alcohol abuse.

He said, “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.”
