You read that right folks: We’re here today with the troubling news that a breach in security has taken place: that of the one and only Choupette Lagerfeld, cat and companion to Karl Lagerfeld.
We know, we know — who would do such a thing!?
The hostile takeover of the account was announced Thursday by Ashley Tschudin, who runs social media for the beloved Birman. (As much as we’d like to imagine Choupette’s very own paws are behind these wildly popular social media accounts, there is alas a human controller.)
“ATTENTION!” Tschudin wrote in a tweet from her ChoupettesDiary account. “Somebody hacked my Instagram & changed the PW.”
ATTENTION! Somebody hacked my Instagram & changed the PW. Anyone have a contact at Instagram to send moi? Merci!

Oddly enough, whoever has tapped into the account hadn’t worked up the courage to make any posts — the most recent Choupette post before the hack was from a week ago.
The Choupette Instagram has more than 96,000 followers, with 51,000 on Twitter — and as of press time, Tschudin has regained control of the account, she confirmed. If the return to Choupette-heavy content doesn’t bring a sigh of relief, we don’t know what will.
