“We hope that she will realise she cannot battle her issues alone. We would kindly ask that the media and wider public give Kate the time she needs to seek the necessary treatment, so that she can hopefully return to the Kate we know and love as a mother, daughter and sister.
“We are concerned and worried about her deeply, we know she lives her life publicly and to many she is fair game, but as a family we hope she can find her path privately moving forward during this very difficult period in her life. We are not asking for sympathy – just that it is recognised that Kate is unwell.
“We take great comfort in reading the messages of support and love for Kate that we will pass on to her, in the hope that these positive messages will spur her on.”
Concerned social media users took to Twitter to send the star, aged 43, much-needed well wishes.
