Karl Lagerfeld's cat Choupette is reportedly set to inherit some of the Chanel designer's estimated $195 million fortune.
Chanel confirmed on Tuesday that Lagerfeld, who had been the fashion house's creative director since 1983, had died at the age of 85 after a short illness.
According to French magazine "Le Figaro," Lagerfeld said in a past conversation that Choupette was an "heiress."
"If something happens to me, the person who will take care of her will not be in misery," he said in a 2015 interview.
Choupette is famous for living a lavish lifestyle, with Lagerfeld referring to her as a "full time job" and hiring maids dedicated to caring for her. She has 235,000 Instagram followers and more than 50,000 followers on .
Any inheritance Choupette receives from Lagerfeld's estate will add to her own fortune, with Lagerfeld revealing in the past that his feline companion had earned more than $3 million from modelling jobs.
Depending on how much is bequeathed to Choupette, she could be poised to set a new record for the world's wealthiest cat. The record is currently held by a cat named Blackie, who inherited 7 million pounds ($9.15 million) from his British owner in 1988.
A spokesperson for Chanel was not immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC.
