Kim Kardashian has splashed out more than £50,000 to buy a hat worn by Michael Jackson as a present for her six-year-old daughter North West.

The reality TV star’s little girl is a huge fan of the late King Of Pop, so she has spent more than £100,000 on memorabilia to keep the youngster happy.

Their latest purchase is the iconic white fedora hat donned by Jackson in his Smooth Criminal music video.

Kim revealed on Instagram stories that she splashed out $65,625 (more than £50,000) on the item.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also posted screen-grabs of the King of Pop wearing the hat in the 1988 music video.

Written in gold on the hat’s interior black band is “Michael Jackson”.

The big spend comes just days after she sparked controversy by revealing she and hubby Kanye West bought the youngster a black velvet jacket, which also belonged to the late pop star.

Fans of Kim and Kanye were repulsed by the cost of the coat – which set them back a staggering £50,000 and brought their total spending on Jackson trinkets to more than £100,000.

Others were outraged over the fact that the couple bought their young daughter items once owned by an accused paedophile.

Taking to Instagram stories on Christmas Eve, Kim explained that she and her husband had splashed out on the jacket for their six-year-old daughter North.

“North is a really big Michael Jackson fan,” Kim explained after winning the coat in a bidding war.

“We knew she would love this… She’s so grateful and excited,” Kim added as she showed off the coat via social media.

The coat came with a photograph of the late singer Jackson, who died in 2009 aged 50, wearing the item.

The troubled star died aged 50 from an overdose 10 years ago – less than three weeks before his first show on the This Is It tour was due to start at the O2 in London.
