Kim Kardashian West ‘Got in Trouble’ With Kanye West for Letting North Do This

If there’s one thing we know about North West, it’s that she’s just as creative as her famous parents. She knows how to walk a runway, likes to rap, and she’s been setting kid clothing trends since forever. 

And while Kim Kardashian and Kanye West generally support and encourage their daughter’s interests, there’s one thing the “Family Business” rapper did not agree with. He apparently was not happy with his wife’s decision to let North wear makeup.

Kardashian West recently reflected on the moment

The KKW Beauty mogul opened up to E! News on Sept. 12 about her decision to let North use cosmetics. In case you missed it, North has been seen wearing products like lipstick on various occasions. For example, she wore a dark purple lipstick to West’s Sunday Service back in May and sported a red one at the Kardashian’s Christmas party in December of 2018.

And while Kardashian West is OK with it, the ye rapper apparently is not. 

“[North] loves makeup, but her dad won’t let her wear it,” the reality star explained to the outlet. “I think he had it, he changed all the rules. I’d let her wear, you know, she has a little red for Christmas, I’d let her wear a red lip, or I’d let her do one pop of something. I’d let her, if she’s wearing a black dress, a black lip. Kylie would give her all of these lip kits, so I kind of got in trouble for that. So, it’s now no more makeup.”

It’s not the first thing West has shot down, either. He also won’t let North create her own YouTube channel.

Kardashian West previously faced backlash for letting North use cosmetics

In September of 2018, the reality star faced backlash after allowing her eldest daughter to test out some of her beauty products. She posted a few photos showing North wearing the products outside, which really set some people off. But Kardashian West clapped back at the naysayers in an Instagram Story, telling them to “relax.”

“North wearing #6 in the new Classic Blossom Collection. Relax mom shamers, it’s coming off in a few minutes. I needed a bribe to get out the door. You feel me?!” she wrote (via BuzzFeed).

Kardashian West also faced criticism in July of 2018 after straightening North’s hair, with many saying that the makeup star would damage North’s natural curl pattern. But she, again, defended herself.

“She is allowed twice a year, on her birthday and birthday party! This pic was taken back in June on her bday,” she replied on Twitter.

I can still feel the love

But West is letting North hold on to at least one thing

Kardashian West added that North is “absolutely” still able to “weigh in” on fashion, which seems to be her biggest love anyways. When she’s trying out new jewelry, she’s styling herself on family vacations.

“My Northie girl is the ultimate fashionista!” Kardashian West wrote on Instagram back in August, before noting that North had styled herself on a recent trip to Japan. “She comes with me to fabric stores and picks out what she likes and for our Japan trip, I let her style herself. I should have let her style me too lol. She’s having fun and I am so happy she’s so expressive.”

Kardashian West had also told The Hollywood Reporter in June that North “loves fashion.”

“She knows what she wants to wear and what she doesn’t. She’s very vocal about it,” she continued.

So, while she might not be able to wear makeup yet, at least she’s able to choose her own outfits at such a young age. Some of us can’t say the same.
