North West must’ve been a good little girl this year. Kim Kardashian shared on Instagram that she and husband Kanye West gifted their 6-year-old daughter with a custom black velvet jacket that was worn by the late Michael Jackson for Christmas this year. The jacket, which was won at an auction for $65,625 at Julien’s Auctions’ Icons And Idols: Rock N’ Roll back in October, was worn by the “Thriller” singer back in 1997.
“North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this,” Kim said in her Instagram Stories. “We won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star explained that the jacket was fitted to fit her young daughter’s frame, but can be altered as she grows, so she can wear it for years to come. “It can grow with her and she can have this for her whole life,” she said. “And she is so grateful and so excited.”
It’s clear the little one is appreciative of her parents’ very thoughtful and generous gift, as she was seen in photos from the holidays grinning ear-to-ear. But the jacket wasn’t the only jaw-dropping gift little Northie received — she was also seen posing with a $10,000 Birkin bag! The pint-sized fashionista paired the luxurious bag with a customized robe from her mother’s SKIMS Cozy Collection. Now, it’s unclear if the eldest of Kim and Kanye’s four kids was gifted the purse or if she was just wearing it for the night — but regardless, the internet had a lot to say about it.
“Overindulgent parents raise kids with no concept of the value of money,” one commenter wrote, while another added, “Absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary. It’s a shame the wealthy don’t instill values in their kids and teach them humility instead of literally giving them whatever they want.”
But regardless of the backlash, little North seems to have no problem with the luxurious items she gets the privilege of wearing!
