In recent celebrity news, Kate Spade’s husband, Andy Spade, released a statement a day after the 55-year-old fashion designer was found dead in her New York City apartment from an apparent suicide. Andy, 55, wrote in a statement to The New York Times, saying, “Kate was the most beautiful woman in the world. She was the kindest person I’ve ever known and my best friend for 35 years. My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can’t even begin to fathom life without her. We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already.” Andy also added that “Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives. We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy. There was no indication and no warning that she would do this. It was a complete shock. And it clearly wasn’t her. There were personal demons she was battling.” According to UsMagazine.com, Kate and Andy, who married in 1994, had recently decided to separate due to marital issues. The couple had one child together, Frances Beatrix, who is now 13. The pair launched the fashion brand Kate Spade New York in the ‘90s. Andy addressed his separation with his now deceased wife in the statement, saying “For the past 10 months we had been living separately, but within a few blocks of each other. Bea was living with both of us and we saw each other or spoke every day. We ate many meals together as a family and continued to vacation together as a family. Our daughter was our priority. We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce. We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how. We were together for 35 years. We loved each other very much and simply needed a break.” Rest in peace, Kate Spade.

In celebrity news, wife of late singer Chris Cornell wrote a truly beautiful, if saddening, epistle in honor of her husband. According to UsMagazine.com, Vicky Karayiannis, Cornell’s wife, wrote an open letter that was posted to Billboard.com following the musician’s suicide by hanging on May 17th. “To my sweet Christopher, you were the best father, husband and son-in-law. Your patience, empathy and love always showed through,” she confessed. “I’m sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night. I’m sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher. Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace,” Karayiannis reassured. She went on to write of her Hollywood relationship, saying Cornell was her “soulmate” and that while she is “broken” she will stand up for him always. The letter closed, “I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will. Always and forever, your Vicky.” Karayiannis has stated that she believes Cornell, a recovering drug addict, may have taken too much Ativan, which caused him to not be in his right mind. “What happened is inexplicable,” Karayiannis admitted, “and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details.” The celebrity couple have two celebrity children together, Toni and Christopher, as well as daughter Lillian from Cornell’s previous marriage.
