Kate Spade's Downfall Fueled by Alcohol, Fashion Insiders Claim

Kate Spade's Downfall Fueled by Alcohol, Fashion Insiders Claim Kate Spade's Downfall Fueled by Alcohol, Fashion Insiders Claim

Kate Spade fell into a deep depression days before hanging herself because her husband - who had moved out of their Park Avenue home - sought a divorce, according to a report.

The handbag designer was found dead in her Manhattan apartment on Tuesday, from an apparent suicide. She was 55 years old and had a 13-year-old daughter with husband Andy Spade, who called her death "a complete shock".

Paying tribute to "the most attractive woman in the world", Andy also revealed her struggle with depression and anxiety, saying: "She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives".

He said he and Kate had been living separately for the past 10 months and that their daughter was their first priority.

"We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce", he added. Prior to launching her fashion line, Spade spent five years at "Mademoiselle", a women's magazine, and eventually become a senior fashion editor and head of accessories. "If that helped anybody avoid anything - fine, she'd be delighted".

Her daughter is only thirteen years old and just lost her mother.

Ethiopia to implement dormant peace deal with Eritrea
Ethiopia became landlocked in 1993 after Eritrea, which comprised the country's entire Red Sea coast, voted to leave. All legislators in Ethiopia's parliament are members of the ruling party.

On Wednesday, Kate's father told the Kansas City Star that his daughter had been prescribed unidentified medication, which he urged her not to take.

Kate Spade took her own life, a coroner has ruled.

"She was happy and we made plans to meet in California", Brosnahan says.

"We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how", he said. "There was no substance or alcohol abuse", he says. We were together for 35 years. "There were no business problems". They moved to NY in the mid-1980s before Kate launched Kate Spade Handbags in 1993. "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break". "We were co-parenting our attractive daughter", he stressed. We loved creating our businesses together.

Andy Spade said he was appalled that "a private message to my daughter" had been shared with the media. But it is sad and very hurtful, given the pain the family is enduring, that people with no real knowledge of the situation are leaking false, speculative information that maligns Kate's character and belittles the health issues she bravely fought.

"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".
