When the news broke about Karl Lagerfeld’s death on Tuesday, my first thought was of Choupette, his beloved Birman cat. Choupette was not only the apple of her daddy’s eye, she was a star in her own right with a sizable social media following. She wrote a sweet blog post about her dad’s passing on her website. It is quite possible that Choupette may inherit part of Lagerfeld’s vast fortune estimated at $200 million. According to the Daily Star, Choupette was living a life of luxury – with her own personal bodyguard, multiple maids and an iPad. Lagerfeld had assured, long before his death, he would make sure Choquette would be able to go on living in the style she was accustomed to and once told a French TV station that “Choupette is a rich girl. She has her own fortune”, hinting at the fact she is written into his will.
