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.

Andy and Kate - who have 13-year-old daughter Frances Beatrix together - had been living separately for 10 months before her passing, but the pair were still close, and Andy has insisted earlier reports about an impending divorce are untrue.

"She was exceedingly kind, beautifully sensitive, insanely talented, amusing as heck and one of the most generous people I have ever known".

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

"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".

A suicide note was found at the scene, he said. I said we could talk about it all - our childhood, etc. After multiple attempts to help her sister Saffo said she finally "let go", adding, "sometimes you simply can not SAVE people from themselves!"

'Just dear - but she was surrounded by YES people, for far too long, therefore she did not receive the proper care for what I believed to be (and tried numerous times to get her help for) bipolar disorder. stemming from her vast celebrity'.

European leaders have suggested they will stick with the Iran deal , also expressing disappointment with Trump's unilateral move. According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a "national security" issue.

She added that sometimes you can't save people from themselves, and the stress and pressure of her empire led to Spade becoming manic-depressive (Doctors used to use the term to describe bipolar disorder).

"We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce", Spade said.

Other family members disputed Saffo's account.

Kate Spade founded famous fashion and handbag brand that bears her name in 1993 with her husband. But within hours of the tragedy, her older sister Reta Saffo spoke to multiple media outlets, and Spade's heartbroken family is not happy with what she had to say. I even said I (would) go with her and be a "patient" too (she liked that idea).

He said her death was a "complete shock". She could make me laugh so hard.

"If you're as honest and fair as you can be, not only in business but in life, things will work out", she told the magazine in a recently resurfaced interview. "If that helped anybody avoid anything - fine, she'd be delighted".
