Kim Kardashian’s daughter North West looked like the spitting image of her father Kanye West in a TikTok video uploaded Thursday night – after the rapper said he didn’t want his kids on the social media platform.
The little girl, nine, transformed into the rapper, 45, by using her special effects makeup skills, which Kim recently revealed she’s been taking classes for.
Kim, 42, joined in on the fun as she stood next to North, who contoured her face and drew on facial hair to perfectly emulate her dad.
North tucked her braided hair into a black beanie and drew on a fake hairline for a more realistic effect.
She completed the epic transformation by throwing on a black hooded sweatshirt.
Kim towered over her eldest child while rocking a pair of mirrored sunglasses from Kanye’s Yeezy line and pulled her newly-dyed brunette hair into a sleek bun.
The KUWTK alum highlighted her toned figure in a skintight SKIMS bodysuit paired with black leather pants.
As another nod to Kanye, a remix of the hitmaker’s 2013 track Bound 2 played over the video.
Kim famously starred as Kanye’s video vixen in the song’s music video.
In the now infamous video, Kim appeared fully nude while sitting backwards on a motorcycle driven by Kanye in front of a green screen.
It comes after last January Kanye stated that he does not want any of his four children to have TikTok accounts without his permission.
The rapper made the comment during an interview with Jason Lee for an episode of Hollywood Unlocked, while noting that he is taking a more active role in his kid’s lives.
North had been the focus of attention for maintaining a TikTok account over the few months before.
West had made his opinion on TikTok clear during an alleged incident at Kardashian’s home, where he had his ‘two female cousins’ speak to Kardashian’s ‘security’ on his behalf.
He recalled: ‘I said, “I need you to go and say these two things: Security ain’t going to be in between me and my children, and my children ain’t going to be on TikTok without my permission.”‘
The Stronger rapper then remarked that, although he was used to having his personal life become the center of attention, he was particularly sensitive about the public’s perception of his children.
‘They can go on SNL and make jokes, they can make jokes in the media, they can plant stories, about whoever I am dating and whatever I want to do…I can tell you straight up, don’t play with my kids,’ he said.
‘It is going to be all legal, it is going to be all legal, baby. You are not going to gaslight me, thinking it is going to be calm like this,’ he said.
Kanye and Kim share four children together which they are currently co-parenting; North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
North has been honing her special FX makeup skills in recent months.
She often showcases her work on TikTok and recently transformed herself into the Grinch ahead of the Christmas holiday.
During an appearance on Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP podcast, Kim gushed over her daughter’s newfound passion and revealed she has been taking classes to master the craft.
‘[North] loves special effects makeup, so she’ll be doing scars and faces and bullet wounds,’ she explained to the host.
‘She takes classes on it and that’s what she loves to do so she loves to show it.’
Kim said that making TikTok videos makes North ‘so happy.’
‘The way that she is so creative, the way that she loves to do TikTok and do these videos, and she’ll take my phone and do skincare stuff,’ she gushed.
Kim and her eldest child created their joint TikTok in November 2021 and currently boast over 12million followers.
And although Kanye disapproves of North having access to the social media app, the exes agreed on one rule: comments must be turned off on all posts.
The app is only allowed on Kim’s phone so the mother-of-four can monitor North’s usage.
It comes after budding makeup enthusiast North has previously showed off her artistic talent when she created a landscape painting in 2021.
The painting of snow-capped mountains overlooking a lake drew over a million ‘likes’, after becoming the subject of scrutiny.
The controversy prompted Kim to share more evidence of her daughter’s artistic prowess in the days to follow.
‘My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured,’ Kim wrote on her Instagram Stories.
The reality star had shared a photo of the painting to her Instagram stories earlier with the caption: ‘My little artist North’.
Almost immediately, some on Twitter were expressing their disbelief that the impressive painting was created by Kim and Kanye West’s eldest daughter.
Following lots of debate about the validity of the painting – with many comments suggesting Kim’s child was not responsible for the painting – she added: ‘How dare you see children doing awesome things and then try to accuse them of NOT being awesome!?!?!’
‘Please stop embarrassing yourselves with the negativity and allow every child to be GREAT!!! NORTH WEST PAINTED THAT PERIOTDDDDDABCDEFGZFDT!!!!!!!’
Some online critics even questioned North’s signature in the corner of the painting, claiming it to be fake.
Others, however, declared the painting was definitely within the skill range of a seven-year-old.
Kim and Kanye’s union – which the influencer considers her one ‘real’ marriage despite walking down the aisle two times before – came to an end in 2021.
Kim filed for divorce that February after nearly seven years of marriage. The former couple share four children: North, nine, Saint, seven, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.
It took over a year – and countless fiery Instagram rants from Kanye that aired out their custody battle and behind-the-scenes drama – for the pair to settle the split.
TMZ revealed that Kim will receive $200,000 in child support monthly. It was also agreed upon that Kim and Kanye will have joint custody and ‘equal access’ to their kids.
Though the pair have come to an agreement, Kim recently confessed that co-parenting with the rapper, 45, has been ‘really f***ing hard’ and that she’s done her best to shield their children from the drama.
