Kate Spade's Family Speaks 

Legendary handbag designer Kate Spade committed suicide at the age of 55. She was found yesterday morning and there was a note left for her 13-year-old daughter. Let this be a reminder to everyone: regardless of who you are, how famous you are, how much money you make… depression does not discriminate. Kate's family released a statement: "we are all devastated by today's tragedy. We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terrible. We would ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very difficult time." The actor David Spade, who is her brother-in-law, posted a few pictures and made it clear how funny she was. He ended his caption "it's a rough world out there people. Try to hang on." Kate's sister said her suicide was not unexpected, as she had suffered from depression for years and both Kate's sister and Kate's husband tried very hard to get her into treatment but Kate wouldn't go.
