No one does Christmas quite like the Kardashian-Wests. This holiday, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West spared no expense on their daughter North, gifting the 6-year-old a lavish jacket, previously owned by none other than the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. It’s reportedly worth $65,625.
On Christmas Eve, Kim shared a series of Instagram stories in which she showed the piece off, a black military-inspired jacket with a crystal-encrusted design across the front, along with a photo of Jackson wearing it at a party.
“For Christmas, Kanye and I gave North this jacket. And this was Michael Jackson‘s jacket that he wore with Elizabeth Taylor,” Kim explained. “North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this.”
The reality star revealed this is not just a museum piece, the custom jacket was in fact altered to fit North. “We had it tacked up so she can wear it and 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,” Kim said. “She is so grateful and so excited.”
Kim went on to say that she and Kanye won the garment at an auction, but would not disclose how much money they had to shell out. However, according to E! News, the jacket sold for a winning bid of $65,625 at auction last October.
