Housekeeper Who Discovered Kate Spade’s Body Considered Her A ‘Best Friend’
Kate Spade’s body was discovered by her housekeeper, whose son now has made a statement and referred to Kate as her “best friend,” according to The Post.
“My mom was one of the people that found her,” said Mark Roldan, 23, said of his mom “She is a little shaken, especially with trauma such as this. It just really hit our family and I’m pretty sure the Spade family as well. It was just really shocking to find out her best friend Kate Spade and also a big influence in my life just passed.”
Mark also said that Kate mentored him, since he is trying to be in fashion too. “She believed in my vision,” he said. “There would be times we would be in California — you know she brought me to Napa Valley and showed me: ‘This could all be yours if you do the same thing I did. Really push and push and push day in and day out.’”
Mark’s mom was even invited to Kate’s mansion in Napa Valley. “Tiff and Justin was invited to spend the weekend at kate spade place,” she wrote in an August 2017 post along with a photo of two kids standing in front of a Spanish-Colonial style home, reports Page Six.
