Late Fashion Designer, Karl Lagerfeld 'Willed' $200m Fortune To His Cat Before He Died

Late German fashion icon, Karl Lagerfeld's cat, Choupette, is reportedly set to inherit some of 200 million dollars fortune after he named her 'in his will'.

According to BBC News, "It has emerged that the iconic Chanel designer who died at the age of 85 on Tuesday, left some of his $200m (£153m) fortune to his cat.

"Lagerfeld told French magazine Numerolast year that he had named the cat as one of the heirs of his estate."
The cat is now richer as a 'millionaire pet' having reportedly earned 3 million dollars (£2.3m) 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.

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.
