Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat To Get $200 Million

The cat owned by legendary fashion designer, Karl Lagerfeld in his lifetime may receive $200million in properties left behind.

Lagerfeld rates the cat highly and employed two bodyguards and maids for it when he lived.

The late fashion designer stole the cat from his young friend, male model Baptiste Giabiconi.

“Choupette is a rich girl,” he once told French television, hinting that had written her into his will.

“She has her own fortune,” he added, thought to be at least three million euros ($3.4 million) which she earned with him doing adverts for a German car firm and a Japanese cosmetics brand.

“If anything happens the person who looks after her will not go without,” said Lagerfeld, who designed for Chanel, Fendi and his own brand right up to his death aged 85.

Choupette — who the designer they called the Kaiser compared to the enigmatic star Greta Garbo — is something of a cult figure in the fashion world, with more than 170,000 followers on social media.

Karl Lagerfeld and Choupette, the cat

She is also the hero of a book, “Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat”, where she was photographed in arms of supermodel Linda Evangalista and snuggling with model turned actress Laetitia Casta.

And unlike ordinary cats, Choupette eats at a table.

“She is like a human being, only with an extra quality — silence,” Lagerfeld quipped.

Despite her reputation as a gastronome, the designer forbade her from doing ads for cat food.

“She is too sophisticated for that,” said the legendary wit, who lived alone and admitted that “Choupette is the centre of my world”.

“She has something unforgettable in the way she moves — I´m inspired by her elegance and her attitude,” he said.
