#goosebumps! Late Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette is reportedly an heir to the late Karl Lagerfeld as she inherits some 200 million dollars fortune.
This was disclosed in his “will” a few hours after the German Fashion designer passed on.
Recall that Lagerfeld had told Numero about naming his cat as one of the heirs of his estate. “Lagerfeld told French magazine Numero last year that he had named the cat as one of the heirs of his estate.”
According to BBC News, “It has emerged that the iconic Chanel designerwho died at the age of 85 on Tuesday, left some of his $200m fortune to his cat.
While the fashion world mourns the loss of Lagerfeld, attention seems to have shifted to his famous pet Choupette, who is almost as much of an icon in the fashion industry.
The cat is now richer as a ‘millionaire pet’ having reportedly earned Three million dollars doing adverts for a German car firm and a Japanese cosmetics brand with Lagerfeld.
Lagerfeld, before passing, in a separate interview with Numero, revealed he employed two maids to look after the pampered animal, adding that it has “four different dishes prepared for her” each day “served in fabulous bowls”.
He also made Choupette a social media sensation, with her own Twitter and Instagram accounts that have combined followership of about 200,000.
A tribute to the designer was posted on the cat’s Instagram account @ChoupettesDiary.
Unfortunately the cat can’t fill up the vacuum created in the fashion world by the demise of the iconic Chanel creative designer Karl Lagerfeld. But his legacy lives on and will be felt in the presence of his cat @choupettes.
Until his death, Karl had no wife or kids.
