Karl Lagerfeld Might Have Left His $200M Fortune to His Cat

By Mark Pygas

Karl Lagerfeld, a prolific fashion designer who had been creative director of French brand Chanel for 36 years, passed away at 85 in Paris on Tuesday. Lagerfeld was pivotal in making the brand as famous as it is today, and built up a formidable personal fortune doing so. 

But as the world mourns Lagerfeld's death, there's been some questions about who will actually inherit the around $200 million net worth of the fashion designer. And some people think his cat, Choupette, might be getting a slice. 

It's an understatement to say that Lagerfeld loved his cat. The designer set up a blog and Instagram for the cat, which boasts over 200,000 followers, and even hired digital marketing expert Ashley Tschudin to run them.
