Many celebrities are known for their lavish lifestyle, but some people may be surprised to know that their pets also have a luxurious life as well. We all love our pets, but celebrities go the extra mile to give their animals the best life money can afford.
Some of them have the right to exclusive holidays, spa treatments, mansions, and private chefs. A-profile names like Oprah and Karl Lagerfeld went even further and included their pets in their wills. Some also became a celebrity and made their own money! Here is a list of the most spoiled pets on show business.
10 Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey is known for having a high-profile lifestyle and being the ultimate diva. Well, she loves her pets and wants them to enjoy the best things in life too.
According to Page Six, the singer spends $46,000 per year on grooming her dogs. They have the right to facial masks and Thai massages. She also believes they deserve holidays and already spends $200,000 to send her pets to a vacation to a dog hotel in England. The price included their own beds and a personal chef to prepare their meals. They are also used to traveling on private jets and follow her around the world.
9 Gisele Bündchen
Gisele Bündchen was sharing an apartment with other models in New York when she fell in love with a small Yorkshire, that cost her $3,000. She decided to call her Vida (life in Portuguese) and the small dog followed her everywhere. Gisele revealed in her book she felt the dog was her only true friend during that time.
When the Brazilian beauty became a high profile model, Vida also had celebrity status in the fashion industry. She was pampered backstage and also had the right to fly on private jets with Gisele. The model dedicated a whole chapter of her book to talk about her relationship with her dog, that passed away some years ago.
8 Britney Spears
A few years ago TMZ analyzed Britney Spears finances and expenses, and they were shocked with the amount the singer invested on her dogs. Just in 2015, she spent nearly $30,000 on her beloved five pets.
The singer pays $300 for grooming on each dog and also spent $24,000 on animal care and thousands on pet sitting. Spears sometimes shares images and videos of her dogs on social media, and we often see pictures of her traveling with her pets. Those pets for sure know how to live like an A-list celebrity.
Oprah has a net worth evaluated on $2.6 billion and she doesn’t hold back on spending part of her fortune with her pets. She has four dogs and wants to make sure they will be fine even if she is not around anymore. The legendary TV host is leaving $30 million in her trust funds to her dogs.
“Dogs are my favorite role models,” she wrote on her book What I Know For Sure. “I want to work like a dog, doing what I was born to do with joy and purpose. I want to play like a dog, with total, jolly abandon. I want to love like a dog, with unabashed devotion and complete lack of concern about what people do for a living, how much money they have, or how much they weigh.”
6 Karl Lagerfeld
Choupette is another famous pet in the fashion industry. The cat belonged to Karl Lagerfeld and is one of his heiresses and received part of his $200 million. The designer revealed the decision in 2012 during an interview with Numero, a French magazine. “Don’t worry, there is enough for everyone,” he joked.

The socialite has built a $325,000 dog house for her pets. She hired Faye Resnick to decorate the place and Philippe Starck to furnish it.“My dogs live in this two-story doggy mansion that has air conditioning, heating, designer furniture, and a chandelier,” Hilton wrote on her social media.
