The 53-year-old actor took to his social networking sites shortly after it was announced on Tuesday that the fashion designer had tragically been found dead in her NY apartment in what appears to have been a suicide.

But Spade, whose brands - first Kate Spade and later Frances Valentine - were associated with freewheeling modern living, felt that seeking help would hurt her products.

Police were called to Kate Spade's Park Avenue apartment Tuesday morning after a housekeeper found her body.

Andy has not spoken publicly aside from giving a joint family statement in which he said he was "devastated" by Kate's death.

Andy's brother, the comedic actor David Spade, took to social media after Kate's death to pay tribute to her.

In reference to claims Kate had been troubled by recent issues in their relationship, and was "drinking" as a result, Andy explains the couple had been living separately for 10 months but within blocks of one another.

Andy Spade called his wife the kindest person he knew and said he can not fathom life without her.

"I, personally - I don't know about Andy - took off a good nine years raising my daughter, and absolutely adored every moment of it", she said.

Over the years, Brosnahan and Spade appeared together on red carpets and other events as the actress' star rose. "They loved each other very much".

"The contents of that note as well as the physical state of the apartment and the comments of the witness lend to the credibility that it is an apparent suicide", NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said.

He elaborated, "Kate was upset by the way the fashion community treated her".

Saffo said she flew to New York City and Napa several times in the past three or four years in this effort.

Spade's family confirmed her death in a statement to The New York Times. "She was exceedingly kind, beautifully sensitive, insanely talented, amusing as heck and one of the most generous people I have ever known".

Sources also told TMZ that Kate Spade was suffering from extreme depression before she died. I even said I (would) go with her and be a "patient" too (she liked that idea) I said we could talk about it all - our childhood, etc. She left in 1991, after 6 years at the company and chose to launch a line of handbags after noticing a lack of good handbags in the market.

Spade also referenced media reports of a suicide note that had been reportedly left by his late wife.

"Last year, Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand in a $2.4 billion deal".

"Kate was the most handsome woman in the world".
