KATE SPADE: Suicide Note Addressed to Daughter

According to sources, the letter read, in part, "Bea - I have always loved you. This is not your fault. Ask Daddy!" Their daughter's full name is Frances Beatrix. Kate's husband, Adam Spade, is also mentioned in the note, which was found on a bed near her body.

KATE SPADE: Obsessed with Robin Williams’s Suicide


The Kansas City Star published an email from Kate Spade’s older sister. She detailed how the iconic fashion designer suffered “debilitating mental illness for the last three or four years and was self-medicating with alcohol.”

Reta Saffo wrote that Spade’s suicide by hanging “was not unexpected by me.” Four years ago, the sisters were together on the day of Robin Williams’ death (quote) “She kept watching [news reports] over and over. I think the plan was already in motion even as far back as then."

The family attempted an intervention convincing Spade to seek treatment for bipolar disorder at the same place Catherine Zeta-Jones went. Spade balked because she feared hospitalization could hurt her “happy-go-lucky” brand (quote) “She was definitely worried about what people would say.”

Reta Saffo said she finally gave up “after numerous attempts, I finally let go. Sometimes you simply cannot SAVE people from themselves!”

TMZ reports that her husband, Andy Spade, had moved out and a divorce was imminent.

Tamra remembered CPR skills because of a viral video showing an electrocuted squirrel brought back from the dead.

Jared Leto will play the Joker in a standalone movie. No other details have been released. He first portrayed the super villain in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Variety says Warner Bros plans "to expand on the world created by Suicide Squad and tie into future installments of that property."

Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloe Grace Moretz and Finn Wolfhard will provide the voices for the upcoming animated version of The Addams Family. The movie opens October 11th, 2019.

Former That's So Raven star Orlando Brown was arrested for narcotics possession Monday afternoon in Las Vegas. TMZ says cops nabbed the actor after seeing him "go in and out of a motel in a high drug and prostitution area."


CHICAGO: "Look Away" Composer Accused of Plagiarism


Songwriting ace Diane Warren faces a plagiarism claim on a number-one song she gave to Chicago.

TMZ reports that Brendan Greaves, an unknown British tunesmith, accuses Warren of pilfering his composition "Look Away" in 1988. He claims Warren copyrighted a song with an identical title and similar lyrics eight months after he entered his "Look Away" in a British competition for amateur writers. The contest was sponsored by EMI, the then-owner of Capitol Records.

Greaves believes EMI somehow gave Warren a look at his song. His song contains the line, "If you see me walking by with a tear in my eye, look away, baby look away." Warren's has a nearly identical phrase, "If you see me walking by and the tears are in my eyes, look away, baby, look away."

Warren has penned classics for dozens of stars since the '80s. Greaves remains a virtual unknown. And apparently one who doesn't listen to the radio. Chicago took Warren's "Look Away" to number-one in the fall of 1988 -- and Greaves was "blissfully unaware" of that mega-single until recently.

Greaves seeks $20 million in damages.
