Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly bought Michael Jackson's jacket for over $65,000.

When you're the child of a super-rich celebrity, of course you're going to get spoilt at Christmas. Case in point, Kris Jenner gifting granddaughter Stormi Webster, one, a two-storey playhouse and her mother Kylie Jenner giving her a diamond ring. Oh, to be rich.

Stormi's cousin North West (the first child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West) received similar treatment, with her parent giving her a jacket worn by singer Michael Jackson for Christmas. Kim and Kanye purchased the velvet and rhinestone jacket for six-year-old North at an auction. Apparently, she's a huge Michael Jackson fan and they even had the sleeves tacked up so she would be able to wear it.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star showed off the gift on her Instagram Story, alongside a photo of Michael wearing the jacket with actress Elizabeth Taylor. "North is a really big Michael Jackson fan, and we knew she would love this," she explained. "We won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas."

She added: "When she gets older, we can untack the sleeve and it can grow with her and she can have this for her whole life. She's so grateful and so excited."

As you can imagine, the jacket didn't come cheap. E! News reported that the couple purchased the jacket for a whopping $65,625 at Julien's Auctions' Icons And Idols: Rock N' Roll event in October.

Needless to say, the internet had a lot to say about this gift. Michael Jackson, who passed away in 2009, has had allegations of child sexual abuse against him.

Others noted that it wasn't exactly an age appropriate present...
