LONDON — Fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who committed suicide in February last year, left £50,000 of his £16 million fortune to his beloved pet dogs, details of his will released Tuesday showed. McQueen, who found huge success with his provocative designs, left the equivalent of $82,000 or 56,500 euros to ensure his dogs were pampered after he was gone. The will, seen by AFP and originally released after a request from Britain’s Press Association news agency, said £50,000 was being left “for the upkeep and maintenance of my dog or dogs so long as my dog or dogs shall live.” He left behind three dogs called Minter, Juice and Callum, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reported. Four charities — HIV and sexual health charity The Terence Higgins Trust, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, the London Buddhist Centre and animal welfare charity Blue Cross — each received £100,000 [~$165,000 USD]. - Google News
