Barbra Streisand says she successfully cloned her dog, Samantha, before she died in 2017 … and she’s currently cuddling up with scientific fruits of that labor.
Babs told Variety her pups, Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett, were cloned from Samantha — a Coton du Tulear — who died at 14. She says the cells were harvested from cells taken from Sam’s mouth and stomach.
She also has a cousin of Samantha’s, who happens to at least look identical to the clones. She frequently posts pics of all 3 pooches, but we had no idea just how designer her dogs were until now.
Also, we now know just how rich Streisand is — she’s got CLONING dough! The process can set ya back as little as $50k or as much as $100k, and you can bet Babs went top shelf.
