In case you don’t keep pace, the Kardashian-Jenner clan likes to go big or go home for the holidays, especially when it comes to showering loved ones with thoughtful and extravagant gifts.
Friday, December 27, the Incredible Kardashian family star revealed that she and her husband Kanye West gifted their 6-year-old child, North West , Two articles from the closet of late Michael Jackson: a black velvet jacket decorated with jewelry and “Smooth Criminal” hat. The two pieces were purchased by Julien’s auction house.
The late singer’s jacket, which he wore Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th anniversary and the 50th Cannes Film Festival, was sold for $ 65,625. The winning bid for his “Smooth Criminal” fedora was $ 56,250.
however, a recent article published by Raffinerie 29 on December 30 claimed that Kim and Kanye gave North much more than that. The publication wrote that the two also allegedly offered their daughter the shirt that President John F. Kennedy wore during his assassination in November 1963. ( Refinery 29 has since edited the article to exclude this information .)
And as soon as Kim heard of the allegations on social networks, she was quick to close them.
Kim apparently noticed the claims after a Twitter user pointed it out. “I’m screaming someone tweeted as a joke that Kim Kardashian offered the bloody shirt from North JFK and Refinery 29 wrote about it like it was true ????”, wrote the Twitter user.
the star KUWTK and mother of four retweeted this tweet and wrote , “WOW, this is obviously wrong! @ Refinery29 I didn’t have the JFK shirt. It’s a sick joke that someone tweeted like a false story ig that I never published. “
Fans and followers of beauty tycoons quickly pointed out that this was another example of irresponsible fact-checking and spreading incorrect information on social media.
The image in question of the alleged shirt that the former President of the United States wore during his assassination in November 1963 has been altered to look like if Kim had posted it on his Instagram story and the caption accompanying it indicated : “With Michael Jackson’s jacket and hat, North, also got the shirt that John F. Kennedy wore during his assassination.”
From the gift, the publication also wrote in the article published since, ” The visual of the shirt displayed on his stories is shocking – and raises questions about why someone would give a child something so violent. “
