There is nothing good about suicide. The loss of life, even when self-inflicted should be mourned and at the very least make us all pause to think of the well being of others for a change. Kate Spade’s suicide earlier this week shocked millions worldwide. The fashionista and designer was loved and adored by many, but was clearly battling some demons of her own. That is exactly what her husband, Andy Spade, had to say in an official statement released after her demise.

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.

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.

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.

This is the truth. Anything else that is out there right now is false. She was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety over the last 5 years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety. There was no substance or alcohol abuse. There were no business problems. We loved creating our businesses together. We were co-parenting our beautiful daughter. I have yet to see any note left behind and am appalled that a private message to my daughter has been so heartlessly shared with the media.

My main concern is Bea and protecting her privacy as she deals with the unimaginable grief of losing her mother. Kate loved Bea so very much.

Our heart goes out to Kate Spade’s family in their time of grief. We would like to reiterate that there is help for anyone feeling suicidal. If you or anyone you know is feeling this way please notify someone immediately and contact the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. Be blessed.

The loss of any life is a true tragedy, and a time to reflect and honor that person’s absence. Today, we pause to do the same as we are deeply saddened to report R&B diva, Aretha Franklin, has passed at the age of 76.

aretha franklin death

Aretha Franklin, as known as “The Queen of Soul,” due to her gospel music and blues roots, was one of the greatest singers of all time. She is greatly revered by other legendary singers like Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight; and influenced the sound of careers of singers like Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey, and still countless others.

Ms. Franklin passed earlier today at 9:50 AM from “advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin’s oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit,” in a statement from her family. Her death comes just three days after it was reported to CNN anchor, Don Lemon, that Aretha was now in hospice care.

A few celebrities have also remembered her in their own way:

 

This is a great loss and a tragedy that millions of people are mourning today. This amazing woman touched so many lives, made so much amazing music, and is now immortalized through her life’s work as one of the greatest singer to have ever graced the face of this Earth. Our thoughts, prayers, well wishes, condolences, and love are with her family and friends during this dark hour.

Below we have posted a few of our favorite songs by Aretha Franklin. We definitely encourage you to share your own, or even comment your memories or experiences with Ms. Franklin. May she now fly high, God Bless.

The last two years of Tyrese’s life feel like one long soap opera that just keeps on dragging out story lines. Just when we thought the R&B would be laying low for awhile more news pops up about his finances. Apparently Tyrese is saying he cannot afford his lifestyle nor to pay his estranged wife, Norma Gibson’s, attorney fees.

via TMZ

Tyrese just filed docs responding to Norma Gibson‘s request for him to pay for her divorce attorney, and they reveal some serious monthly expenses. According to the docs, Tyrese says he’s dropping about nearly $114k each month for his mortgage, child care, groceries, utilities and $10k in child support payments to Norma.

Here’s where that number becomes a problem — Tyrese says in the docs he’s only bringing in $51k on average each month. Doesn’t take a math genius to see he’s in the red. In fact, he says his savings have dwindled from $800k in cash last November to just $130k now.

He’s also blaming Norma for his lack of income these days — saying the negative coverage he got last year when she accused him of domestic violence … has made it hard for him to book movie work.

We are not really sure what to make of Tyrese’s claims. We do know for a fact he gets royalty checks for his past albums and he has made millions of dollars off The Fast & The Furious franchise. If he is broke, and that is a big IF, then where has his money gone? We really hope this custody battle between he and Norma is resolved soon and that Tyrese seeks professional help to get through his recent crises. What do you guys think? Is Tyrese really broke or do you think he is playing the system and avoiding giving Norma those coins? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
