KIM Kardashian has sparked outrage for giving her daughter North an original Michael Jackson jacket for Christmas – that cost over £50,000.
The 39-year-old revealed that she and husband Kanye had won the jacket, which was worn by the late pop-star for Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday party in 1997, at an auction.
The exclusive piece of memorabilia, which is now owned by the six-year-old super fan, sold for £50,707 ($65,625).
Kim told her followers: “Kanye and I gave North this jacket, and, this was Michael Jackson’s jacket that he wore with Elizabeth Taylor.
“North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this.”
She went on to reveal that they had it altered to fit the youngster, saying: “We won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas and we had it tacked up so she could wear it.
“The sleeves are half tacked up so when she gets older we can untack the sleeve and it can grow with her and she can have this for her whole life.”
She added: “She’s so grateful and so excited.”
Kim’s followers were rather shocked by the extravagant gift and took to Twitter to discuss it.
One person wrote: “I don’t care how much Kim Kardashian loves Michael Jackson, she bought his jacket for her f**king child to wear it. They don’t know the real value of these memorabilia. Lady Gaga did the same thing, I hate it.
“They belong to museums and should be framed and preserved like relics.”
Another added: “Kim Kardashian literally got north Michael Jackson’s actual jacket for Christmas.. oh my god those children really do have it all don’t they? Must be nice being born into a rich family init x”
While someone else tweeted: “Help me understand why tf this girl @KimKardashian would buy her daughter a #MichaelJackson original jacket for Christmas. After everything we’ve heard, we’ve seen – really?!?! This is what you buy your daughter?!?! #KUWTK #LeavingNeverland.”
It comes just days after North was seen using a $10,000 Birkin bag.
