Expect the Kardashians to ruffle a few feathers with their next move! North West, Kim Kardashian’s eldest daughter, stunned netizens with her Halloween costume, which included Michael Jackson’s real hat from the Smooth Criminal music video. Yes, you read that correctly! The nine-year-old dressed up as the late ‘King of Pop,’ wearing a black leather jacket, matching pants, and a white t-shirt with an off-white cap that still had remnants of the American singer’s makeup on top.
According to Page Six, Kim bought Jackson’s hat for North as a Christmas present in 2019 at an auction, along with a velvet jacket that the singer wore to Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday party in 1997 and a screening of his film Ghosts. According to the report, the jacket cost her a whopping $65,625 and was customised to fit North in such a way that she can adjust it as she grows.
The child wearing the iconic hat to a Halloween party did not sit well with netizens who chastised Kim on social media.
“Now, why did Kim K feel the need to give North West Michael Jackson’s actual hat for Halloween?” Half of the people she dressed the kids up as don’t even know who they are smh. “Let the kids be kids and PICK THEIR OWN COSTUMES,” one user commented.
“The fact that Michael’s kids couldn’t get this stuff and now have to watch the Kardashians treat their deceased father’s historical clothing as the party costume,” one person tweeted.
“North getting Michael Jackson’s things to dress up don’t sit right with me,” one user wrote on the microblogging site. Girl has no idea who he is. Atp Kim will go to any length to gain attention.”
