David Spade Somber in L.A. After Kate Spade’s Death

David Spade‘s look of grief was undeniable after the death of his sister-in-law, and the comedian has a heartfelt message regarding the tragedy.

Spade was seen Tuesday afternoon walking around Los Angeles hours after Kate Spade committed suicide across the country in her Manhattan apartment.

On Tuesday afternoon, David tweeted a photo of Kate from a book signing of his, writing, “Katy at my book signing. I love this pic of her. So pretty. I dont think everyone knew how fucking funny she was… Its a rough world out there people. Try to hang on.”

The comedian has always acknowledged his relationship to the handbag maven through his brother, but rarely referenced her in public or in any of his comedy bits.

As we reported, Spade hanged herself in her bedroom with a scarf attached to the doorknob.  There was a note left at the scene, but the cause or causes behind her decision to take her life is still unclear.
