A news report that the Internet sensation known as Grumpy Cat has earned $100 million is "completely inaccurate," the cat's owner, Tabatha Bundesen, told The Huffington Post.
The British tabloid The Daily Express reported on Sunday that Grumpy Cat had earned 64 million British pounds, or roughly $100 million, for Bundesen.
Bundesen declined to comment on her cat's specific earnings. She said she is considering how and when to give a full interview to set the record straight. She said her TV deal with Lifetime likely meant she would provide additional details to that channel.
Grumpy Cat's agent, Ben Lashes, who calls himself a "meme manager," did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post.

Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, became an Internet meme for being a very grumpy looking cat. Her YouTube page now has more than 16 million views, and she has an endorsement deal with Friskies cat food. She also has "authored" two books, the first of which became a New York Times bestseller, and has a movie -– "Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever" -– currently airing on Lifetime.
