Kate Spade was found dead in her home on the morning of June 5, 2018, from what police have characterised as a suicide. But according to her sister, Spade's health did not match her sunny style.

Andy Spade said he had not yet seen a note left behind by his wife but was "appalled that a private message to my daughter has been so heartlessly shared with the media". There had been no plans for divorce.

"She was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety over the last five years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety", he said.

Kate's older sister Reta Saffo revealed that the fashion designer had been suffering from mental illness and was self-medicating with alcohol. 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.

Mr. Brosnahan said he and Ms. Spade had discussed "her sadness, which is what we liked to call it".

He said her death was a "complete shock". "Ask Daddy!" While it is not clear what she meant by adding, "Ask Daddy", some interpret it as her way of blaming Andy for her decision to end her life.

They lived apart, with Andy staying in a nearby apartment.

The injured service members were medevaced to Djibouti, where US Africa Command (AFRICOM) maintains its Camp Lemonnier base. The terrorist group al-Shabaab, the local al-Qaeda affiliate, has claimed responsibility for the attack.

"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. She was the kindest person I've ever known and my best friend for 35 years.

He and Spade had been married since 1994 and have one daughter together. The family continued to eat meals and take vacations together, he said. "She was definitely anxious about what people would say if they found out". Long before we talked about "authenticity", she defined it.

"I think women do want something that's interesting", said Spade in July 2000.

In the statement, provided to The New York Times, Andy addresses reports of a "suicide note" said to have been left behind for the couple's 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade. "Kate loved Bea so very much", he said. Anything else that is out there right now is false. "There were no business problems", he said in his statement.

Kate also told People that the key to their personal and business success together was their opposite approach to things.
