Kanye West is sending love and light to the family of Kate Spade in the wake of her untimely passing by suicide…
According to People.com:
Late Monday night, West added his voice to the chorus of celebrities across the globe paying tribute to Spade on social media by tweeting a screenshot of an article headline referencing her death and alleged struggle with depression. (These claims were disputed by a source close to the Spade family in an interview with PEOPLE.)
“All love to her family,” West, 40, tweeted, alongside multiple emoji of hands folded in prayer.

The message comes just days after West went public with his own mental health status on his new seven-track album,YE, which dropped last Friday. After hinting at his struggles in recent interviews, he confirmed a bipolar diagnosis on the song “Yikes” — referring to the disorder as his “superpower” and declaring it “ain’t no disability, I’m a superhero.”
Additionally, the album’s artwork — which West shot on the way to the listening party — features an image of the mountains with a lime green text overlay reading, “I hate being bipolar it’s awesome.”
He elaborated about his “mental condition” during an interview recorded with radio host Big Boy following the YE listening party held in Wyoming last Thursday night. “I had never been diagnosed until I was 39,” he said before adding, “but like I said on the album, it’s not a disability, it’s a superpower.”
