Designer Kate Spade, who committed suicide in NY, suffered for years from mental illness but had refused treatment, her sister said on Wednesday (Jun 6).

Late on Tuesday, actor David Spade, who was Kate Spade's brother-in-law, remembered the fashion designer as someone "sharp and quick on her feet".

In a statement, Spade's family in NY said they were all "devastated" to lose her.

The couple's marital problems had become so hard, The Blast reported, that in the months prior to Kate's suicide, Andy had started looking to purchase a new one or two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan.

"We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly", they said in a statement Tuesday. "She said, 'But you're not Kate Spade! It was a complete shock". "She was definitely anxious about what people would say if they found out".

"I, personally, I don't know about Andy - took off a good nine years raising my daughter and absolutely adored every moment of it", Spade said last April.

He said there were "personal demons she was battling". Saffo wrote in an email to the Star, painting a very different picture of a woman who made her brand in the "happy-go-lucky" image of herself that many have paid tribute to in the 24 hours since Spade's death.

"The last I talked with her, the night before last, she was happy planning a trip to California to look at colleges". Law enforcement confirmed with TMZ that Andy was not living at the family home, and that he and Kate had separated. But when we need to be serious we're serious, and she can tell the difference, but I think we've had a lot of fun. "Unfortunately, untreated, it finally took its toll on her", Saffo admits.

Calling his wife "the most handsome woman in the world", Andy Spade acknowledged that the couple had been living apart for the last 10 months. "There were no business problems", he said in his statement. "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break", he said in his statement.

Saffo believes Spade was suffering from bipolar disorder and wasn't surprised when she heard the news of her suicide. In 2016, they launched a new footwear and accessories brand called Frances Valentine, naming it after their daughter, who is now 13.
