Kim and Kanye gift Michael Jackson’s jacket to daughter North

Kim Kardashian West and her rapper husband Kanye West gave daughter North a special gift for Christmas – a jacket of pop legend Michael Jackson.

According to People magazine, on Christmas eve, the 39-year old showed off the gift on her Instagram stories and explained how her 6-year old daughter is a huge fan of Michael Jackson.

The Kardashian-Wests shelled out $65,625 (£50,600) at auction back in October to buy the jacket that Jackson wore at Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday and to the Cannes Film Festival in 1997.

The TV star revealed that she and West won the jacket in an auction.

“North is a really big Michael Jackson fan,” she added.

In one of the stories, Kim showed the late singer’s pictures, along with Taylor. “We knew she would love this,” she explained in the videos.

The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star also mentioned that she had the sleeves of the jacket taken up so that North can wear it. The hem can also be stripped so that her daughter can wear it as she grows.

Kim seemed quite grateful and excited about the gift in the videos.
