What happens with Choupette after Lagerfelds dead?
Many wonder what happens to Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette. She hasn’t inherited millions, but she will be well cared for in the future. She will probably go back to her original owner Baptiste Giabiconi. Lagerfeld herself cleared up the rumours that she would inherit millions. “With her 135,000 followers, Chopette will certainly be able to finance her croquettes herself,” says Karl.
Karl Lagerfeld’s funeral
The funeral will take place exactly as the fashionable tzar wished. He will be cremated and scattered together with the ashes of your mother and ex-boyfriend Jacques de Bascher, who died far too early from HIV. He had a relationship with Jacques for 18 years, and Lagerfeld never got over the loss. The fashion house Chanel respects Karl Lagerfeld’s last wish and makes sure that it is kept.
