In January, Oprah pal Gayle King purchased a $7 million penthouse apartment in New York — and, at the time, we noted that the financing of her apartment was unknown.

This morning's Page Six reveals that the penthouse was "purchased in the name of Oprah's recently departed pooch, Sophie. According to deed-transfer records released yesterday, a company called Sophie's Penthouse LLC bought a $7.1 million full-floor sky palace atop the 36-floor building at 207 E. 57th St."

Oprah's 13-year old cocker spaniel, Sophie, recently died of kidney failure.
