North gets legendary gift

On Wednesday night, Kim took to her Instagram stories to reveal that she had bought King of Pop Michael Jackson's jacket for her six-year-old daughter. 

Kim posted pictures of the black piece which featured glittery decor on the shoulder and chest, and a red stripe on the arm. "Michael Jackson's actual jacket," Kim wrote over it. 

She said the tot is a big fan of the late pop superstar, and they knew she would love it. She added: "[North] is so grateful and excited." The reality star had already tailored the jacket for North.

The final cost 

They closed in on the sleeves so that the young girl could rock the suit in current day. If she wants to wear it when she's older, the hemming can be removed. 

According to E! News, the jacket cost the stars $65,625 at the Julien's Auctions' Icons and Idols: Rock N' Roll event. It was purchased back in October.

Jackson's jacket controversy

The item was reportedly worn in 1997 as Jackson attended Elizabeth Taylor's 65th birthday party. It also made an appearance at the screening of the film "Ghost" during the 50th Cannes Film Festival. 

The gift is inherently controversial since people have accused Jackson of child abuse. Earlier this year, the documentary "Leaving Neverland" further pushed the allegations to light.

Meanwhile, Kylie Jenner's gift to her daughter was a bit more traditional — but still crazy expensive. The 22-year-old must have a dished out a hefty amount for the diamonds she gave to her baby girl. 

The one-year-old also got a fully furnished, life-size playhouse from her grandmother, Kris Jenner. In a video shared on YouTube, we see as the little one gets the first look of her incredible gift.

Saint's birthday bash

Last week, Kim also went all out for her son Saint's birthday party. This year, Kim and Kanye did a dinosaur-themed bash for their son, who turned four on December 5. 

In the photos shared, we see various parts of the large dinosaur park. The entire family made an appearance in the slideshow. As for North, his joy was easy to see. 

We wonder what he and siblings Chicago, one, and Psalm, seven months, got for Christmas this year. Whatever it is, we're going to guess it probably didn't come cheap.
