Fashion Icon, Karl Lagerfeld Wills $3.4 Million To His Cat

Late Fashion Icon, Karl Lagerfeld, has reportedly willed $3.4 million (1.2 billion Naira) from his fortune to his cat, Choupette.

Lagerfeld, who died single at age 85, provided his pet with extravagant lifestyle which includes a bodyguard and two maids.

Before his death, Lagerfeld, had once told French television that the white Burmese cat has her own fortune.

He said: “Choupette is a rich girl, she has her own fortune.

“If anything happens, the person who looks after her will not go without.”

The eight-year-old cat has appeared in various commercials including those for a German car firm and a Japanese cosmetic brand.

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

Lagerfeld didn’t allow the cat feature in cat food ads.

According to him: “She is too sophisticated for that, she has something unforgettable in the way she moves and I’m inspired by her elegance and attitude,” he said, referring to the cat that has 170,000 followers on Twitter.
