The former husband of this suicided designer is worried because he knows an upcoming book is going to make him look like an a-hole who has a story that makes no sense.
Upcoming Kate Spade biography sets nerves on edge
Top fashion critic Vanessa Friedman is penning a biography of tragic designer Kate Spade for Random House, Page Six has exclusively learned.
But we’re told that — a little more than a year after Spade’s suicide — still-raw nerves and concern for her family are making the project a challenge.
Insiders say that Kate’s widower, Andy Spade — who has a good relationship with the New York Times’ fashion director and chief fashion critic — is aware of the project, but he’s anxious about its progress.
We’re told that Andy has already made some attempts to influence the book, but it’s not clear exactly how.
Andy — who had been separated from Kate for 10 months when she died on June 5, 2018 — gave his first, much-sought-after interview after the death to Friedman. – Source
