Kim Kardashian‘s pricey and unusual Christmas gift to daughter North West appears to have disgusted fans. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star spent over $65,000 this year to make sure her eldest daughter was furnished with a gift to beat all gifts.
Kim spent $65,625 to win a bid for Michael Jackson‘s iconic “Thriller” jacket. The world-famous black jacket known for its rhinestone tassels is now the property of 39-year-old Kim’s first-born child, with Kim taking to social media to share her Christmas present.
Kim didn’t need too many words to caption an image of the deceased king of pop’s jacket.
“Michael Jackson’s actual jacket,” the reality star and makeup mogul wrote as she took to social media.
Kim then took to her Instagram stories to share a little more.
“North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this. We won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas,” Kim told her followers.
While Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi was gifted a luxury playhouse by grandma Kris and a life-size “Trolls” experience by dad Travis Scott, North West clearly won on the unique front.
Kim will always garner praise from her legion of social media followers, but not all of the mother of four’s fans were in the mood to throw her the thumbs-up on this occasion.
Kim sparked outrage as disgusted fans took to the digital space to slam her.
“With what ‘They’ spent on that jacket, how many children could of been fed,” one fan wrote.
“Isn’t it ironic that a child was gifted a jacket reminiscent of person who allegedly had issues with children,” another wrote, referencing Michael Jackson’s accusations of pedophilia.
Another fan simply called the gift “disturbing.”
As the above-mentioned Fox News report states, 6-year-old North already possesses some pretty high-end stuff. Kim’s eldest daughter owns a $10,000 bag from luxury French luggage brand Hermès.
The Birkin model owned by North is also much-loved by Kim’s younger sister Kylie Jenner. In fact, it looks like Kylie’s 1-year-old daughter already has the word “Birkin” in her vocabulary, having uttered the word on video in the run-up to Christmas.
Kim then posted snaps of Michael Jackson wearing his jacket with legend Elizabeth Taylor.
Christmas 2019 has been all kinds of extra for the KarJenner kids. Already spoiled rotten has been Stormi. The video showing Stormi saying “Birkin” was mostly dedicated to the luxury playhouse she was gifted by 64-year-old grandma Kris Jenner.
Stormi then appeared on her mother’s Instagram as she relished dad Travis Scott’s gift: the “Sicko Mode” rapper gave his daughter a life-size “Trolls” experience.
As to what 35-year-old Khloe gifted her daughter True (or Kourtney to her three kids), it looks like we’ll have to wait.
Kim has been spoiling North West since day one. The star’s daughter was still a toddler when she was gifted a Hermès bag “to paint.” Yes, 2014 brought one proud Kim as she showcased the paint-splattered bag that North had decorated.
“Me & my bae out today ? Wearing my favorite bag painted by my little North ?,” Kim wrote as she showed off the results of North’s art work on social media.
As ET Online reports, North’s bag was worth anywhere between $10,000 and $100,000.
The Michael Jackson jacket? Fans would likely consider it priceless, but clearly, not everyone was a fan.
