Kate Spade was under treatment for depression, anxiety -Husband

Our daughter was our priority.

The despondent 55-year-old fashion designer did not want her 24-year marriage to Andrew to end, TMZ reported, citing law enforcement sources.

Andy Spade threw on the freakish disguise and left his Park Avenue home just after 8:30 a.m. - two days after his wife Kate was found dead in the apartment. "This thing better work", she said in the interview.

He continued to say that his main focus now is the pair's teenage daughter, who Kate reportedly left a note to.

Andy Spade said he and his wife had made a decision to take a break and had lived in separate residences for 10 months.

It was officially confirmed by the Medical Examiner's Office to the New York Times on Thursday morning.

In Spade's suicide note to her daughter, she suggested that Andrew would know why she took her life.

Spade described his wife as kind and his best friend for 35 years. In it, he clarifies some of the reports surrounding her death and speaks candidly about her struggles with anxiety and depression.

In the statement, Andy explained that although they had been living separately for the past 10 months, they spoke or saw each other every day and co-parented their daughter together.

"Kate designed with great charm and humor, and built a global empire that reflected exactly who she was and how she lived". We loved creating our businesses together.

"There was no indication and no warning that she would do this", he said.

The husband of fashion designer Kate Spade, who took her own life Tuesday, says his wife was getting help for anxiety and depression. "Kate loved Bea so very much".

Earl "Frank" Brosnahan, Spade's father, has also spoken out about his daughter's death, telling The Kansas City Star he'd spoken to Spade the night before.

Meanwhile, Spade and her husband - brother of comedian David Spade - started a new handbag company a few years ago, Frances Valentine.
