Kim Kardashian admits she’s ‘obsessed’ with auctions as she collects more MJ memorabilia for North

On Christmas Eve, Kim Kardashian revealed on Instagram that her and Kanye West gifted daughter North a jacket that belonged to the 6-year-old’s music idol, Michael Jackson.

The pampering parents won the jacket worn by the Bad singer at auction for $65,625 in October, but that wasn’t the only piece of music memorabilia they’ve happened to get their hands on. 

The Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s star snatched up Michael Jackson’s signature hat that he wore in the Smooth Criminal music video, along with rings worn by music legend, Elvis Presley.

The 39-year-old stunner wasn’t about to stop at one piece of priceless memorabilia for her first born, North.

Kardashian also got her hands on the original white fedora worn by Jackson in the iconic music video for his hit song Smooth Criminal. 

In a snap shared to her Instagram story, Kim wrote: ‘North also got Michael’s Smooth Criminal Hat. It still has his makeup on it.’

The hat, sitting on what appears to be Kim’s floor, appeared well-loved by Jackson as foundation stains covered a large portion of the inner and outer brim.

Kim followed the post with a slew of pictures taken directly from the Smooth Criminal video to give fans a side-by-side comparison to prove its legitimacy. 

The reality star went on to admit that she is ‘obsessed with auctions.’

Kardashian must also be obsessed with the act of giving because in a later post, she revealed she snatched up two gold, stone encrusted rings worn by another music icon, Elvis Presley.

But, this time, the items weren’t for daughter North, instead they were gifted to brother Rob.

‘My brother is the biggest Elvis Presley fan so I got him two of Elvis’ rings for Christmas,’ Kim gushed.  

The first ring, featuring an awe-inspiring ruby, was won at auction by Kim for $7K.

The second Elvis-worn ring went for $8K and was decorated with a row of sparkling diamonds. 

Kardashian tagged Julien’s Auctions, thanking them for her hefty purchases.

On Christmas eve, the day the memorabilia gift giving all began,  Kim Kardashian revealed she and Kanye West had gifted North one of Michael Jackson’s jackets – something which they won at an auction with her in mind.  

The jacket was worn by the late pop-star for Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday party in 1997 – and sold for $65,625.   

‘We won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas and we had it tacked up so she could wear it,’ she said.

‘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 added that the six-year-old was ‘grateful’ for her early Christmas present. 

‘She’s so grateful and so excited.’

Michael’s jacket was sold for auction at the same time of Kurt Cobain’s green cardigan, which sold for a record-breaking $334,000. 

It was reported on October 26, 2019, by CNN, that the Black or White singer’s jacket had been sold for $65,625 – although the winner was not named.  

And it appears as though Kim and Kanye overpayed, with the estimated sell initially between $10,000 – $20,000.
