Kate Spade's husband says she suffered from depression

Kate Spade

Though the reason why Spade chose to take her own life is still unconfirmed, the suicide note, which Yahoo News says was found on the bed near her body, suggests that Spade's husband and business partner, Andy-brother of comedic actor David Spade-may know something more.

Andy and Kate Spade were married for 24 years. Kate Spade's older sister, Reta Saffo, said that she had been trying to convince Kate to get help for several years without success and that Spade had been "self-medicating with alcohol". "We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly", the statement read.

Saffo said she'd come close to getting Kate Spade into treatment, but she backed out every time.

He said her death was a "complete shock".

Cops were unclear as to why Spade, who became a fashion sensation a decade ago, would have taken her own life.

"She made fashion fun and empowering and full of personality", Howard wrote in part.

Kate, who is also aunt to Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan, is survived by her teenage daughter, Frances, and her husband, Andy. The designer left a suicide note addressed to her 13-year-old daughter, telling her it was not her fault, reports CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan.

Late Tuesday, West shared a screenshot of an article about Spade's passing, adding a message of "love" for Spade and her family. They also worked on Kate's fashion brand, Kate Spade New York together from the very beginning.

In his statement, Andy Spade described his wife as "the most attractive woman in the world".

The sister said she tried to get help for Spade in a mental health facility. The family continued to eat meals and take vacations together, he said.

"She puts forth a sort of aspirational line, which I think 'Oh I want to be like that!"

Despite rumors, Spade insisted "this is the truth" and "anything else that is out there right now is false". Their friend and colleague, Fern Mallis, spoke to reporters from PEOPLE shortly after the news broke, calling the rumored suicide "so out of character" for Spade. "Kate Spade, the visionary founder of our brand, has passed away", Kate Spade New York said in a statement.

"There was a moment when you couldn't walk a block in NY without seeing one of her bags, which were just like her; colourful and unpretentious", Wintour said in a statement.

"For us, these bags were not simply versatile enough to go from boardroom to bar (as they were for numerous working women in our orbit), they were our first portal into the unfamiliar, intoxicating world of fashion", the magazine explained. We were coparenting our attractive daughter.
