Karl Lagerfeld’s cat’s Instagram page has posted for the first time since his death
A pampered French cat who eats off fine china has two bodyguard, a personal chef, and two maids, the seven-year-old cat Will inherit a sizeable chunk of the late designer’s $200m fortune.
Karl Lagerfeld’s heiress cat has paid tribute to her late companion, appearing behind a black veil, in a heartbreaking Instagram post.
Choupette – who Lagerfeld famously said he would marry – could be set to inherit his $200m fortune, but was described as ‘simply heartbroken.’
The feline was Lagerfeld’s great love, flying with him on private jets, adorned in diamond necklaces and raking in millions as a model.
The Instagram post read: ‘Thank you, everyone, for your words of condolence. (cat face crying emoji) With a once cold but now simply broken a heart, I am going into mourning.
‘I pray that your kind words and well-wishes will help me to put my best paw forward in my future without Daddy @KarlLagerfeld & as my own woman.’
Clearly, someone else must have written this for the kitty, but it is not known who is looking after the gorgeous Burmese since Lagerfeld died aged 85 in Paris on Tuesday.
She was one of the designer’s most important companions in later life and enjoyed a life of luxury making more than $3.5million herself.
Choupette began her modeling career in August 2012, posing in the arms of French supermodel Laetitia Casta by the Eiffel Tower.
The cat has since been used in numerous advertising campaigns, including for Opel cars and various make-up ranges.
