North West already has $1 million worth of jewelry & $2000 La Mer diaper cream

star cover

I’m not even going to pretend that Star Magazine’s cover story this week is important gossip. It’s not important in the least. Most of it probably isn’t true. But it’s fun and silly and I enjoyed it immensely. I always say that Kim Kardashian and Duchess Kate are soul-twinsies and I enjoy seeing the comparisons expanded to include their children. North West was born five weeks before Prince George. North and George were the biggest celebrity babies to arrive last summer, and the babies live lives of extreme privilege. Here are some highlights from the cover story:

*Kim and Kanye see Nori as “an extension of themselves” which means they are “addicted to spoiling her.” Kanye has always bought Nori high-end designer baby clothes and at this point, Nori “already has more than $1 million work of designer clothes, and a lot of them are custom-made… she’s got tons of Givenchy, Gucci, Louis Vuitton… she even has a fur coat designed for her by Karl Lagerfeld that cost $20,000!”

*Prince George is spoiled in other ways – his security (provided by British taxpayers) has already cost millions of pounds. Duchess Kate “spends a lot on his wardrobe and she gets a kick out of dressing him up. She buys him lots of cashmere: he even has cashmere socks.” Still, Kate “makes sure that George doesn’t get too spoiled.” Kate rarely spends more than $100 on one of George’s ensembles.

*Nori already has a handbag collection (she has a mini-Birkin!) and a sizable jewelry collection. “Kanye bought her a ruby and pearl necklace in France that’s insured for $500,000 and he got her one pair of earrings that cost $75,000! The whole collection is worth more than $1 million, easy!”

*Meanwhile, Prince George has crazy real estate, including the Kensington Palace “apartment” (which has a nursery full of toys) and Anmer Hall.

*The Queen “adores George… she even changes his diapers!”

*Kim and Kanye want to get Nori her a toddler-sized gold toilet to match their adult-sized gold toilets.

*Nori “only travels in luxury vehicles, Range Rovers, Bentleys, Porsches. This girl is never going to ride in a Honda.”

*”Instead of regular diaper cream, Kim slathers North in Crème de La Mer, even though it costs $2000 a jar. Her sisters tell her she’s crazy, but Kim doesn’t care. She wants the best for her baby girl. Nori gets massages and hydrating facials too!”

*Prince George already has a “personal assistant to deal with everything from cataloguing his gifts to manicuring his nails. He isn’t even talking yet but Kate’s already hired George a tutor. He’s also got a private swim coach and a personal butler. The nannies curtsy to George even though he’s too young to know what’s happening.”

*Nori is isolated: “Kim and Kanye don’t mind her playing with her cousins, Mason and Penelope, but they don’t want her associating with people who aren’t rich, famous or ‘good enough’ for her.” As for George, “Kate doesn’t want her son growing up in a bubble of exclusively wealthy friends – she wants him to be comfortable around everyone.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Just a few things. Bulls—t on “Kate doesn’t want her son growing up in a bubble of exclusively wealthy friends.” If that were true, she and William wouldn’t be moving to Anmer Hall and their tight-knit group of wealthy friends and sycophants. She wants George to grow up in the bubble. As for Nori’s $2000 butt cream… sigh. I’m sure the less expensive stuff probably works better, but whatever. And I always think it’s asinine to buy crazy jewelry for babies.

    Yuck, so much excess.

    • CTgirl says:

      Maybe Kim should rub the ass cream on her face and see if her countenance begins to look human again. What a crazy family.

    • Soporificat says:

      Yeah, I really hope that all the bizarrely over the top materialism I hear coming from Kimye is just a lot of hype. Otherwise, they are just horrible, stupid, and selfish people.

      • aenflex says:

        I agree with your sentiment. However, it’s Kim and Kanye – two of the most excessive, opulent, image focused, money-bleeding celebrities. It’s probably true.

      • Ag says:

        i know. i feel gross even reading about it. there are hungry kids in the world, and both kimye and kate/william live in such insane excess.

      • DailyNightly says:

        They really are horrible, stupid and selfish people.

    • Michelle says:

      Diaper cream bought by all your charitable donations.

      • gefeylich says:

        Yes. Has to come from somewhere and the sex tape market isn’t viable anymore (and when Kendull does hers, she won’t share the profits with anyone but PMK). What better use of “charity” money than useless, ridiculously expensive things that only the dimmest of nouveau riche douchebags would think are “klassy?”

    • Audrey says:

      I thought my daughter’s $15 bum cream was getting a bit ritzy (it’s a smallish jar but works so well and lasts for a long time).

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        LOL And look how you still feel like you have to justify the $15? Different perspectives. But I can’t hate on the butt cream. Everything else but that. I don’t spend much on clothes or shoes but skin care? Uh, yeah. You have one face. Invest in it. Same with baby’s bum. Just spend it if you’ve got it.

        I don’t buy that the Queen is changing diapers. In what world???

      • Red32 says:

        I think Triple Paste ($10) is pricey, but it is the best and I doubt LaMer works better. Who cares about the size of the pores on a baby’s butt? It’s supposed to create a barrier against moisture and contain zinc to prevent rashes.

      • Audrey says:

        I might link my husband to this so he realizes how thrifty I really am 😉

    • Chicagogurl says:

      More importantly, how can one such as myself become a baby masseuse? I love chubby babies and I can give acupressure and tickle baby feet and get paid for it? This must be what Oprah meant when she said dream big.

    • gefeylich says:

      And Kartrashian is still trying to flog the idea that she is the Duchess of Cambridge’s American counterpart. She is beyond delusional. And her mother obviously paid the Star to write this drivel.

  2. Diane says:

    I was gonna say ‘way to keep a kid grounded,’ but they’ll probably buy her a set of wings next.

    • Giselle says:

      LOL, this is why the Kardashians stay famous/ in the press constantly. People believe EVERYTHING that is printed about their income, or spending habits. These people’s pr person deserves a medal for convincing the public they’re as wealthy as they claim.

      Even if this story is true, why do people still think Kim is going to donate to charity or help children in need? She’s been in the business for a while now and we know she doesn’t care about anyone else. The more people realize this, the less comments she’ll get!

      • Joan says:

        I agree with you..Kris Jenner is a genius not because she made her family but because she has manipulated every member of the public to make them think Kim has money..they don’t have half of what the media says they have and that makes the Kardashians spend all their money to portray the image they pretend to have…these people are nearing bankruptcy…

  3. msw says:

    my baby is just a couple months (weeks?) older than Nori. Her nickname is “the ruiner.” Baby jewelry and baby designer clothes are stupid. I don’t own anything unstained anymore and I’m not the one rubbing avocado in my ears and getting crumbs of cheese in my pants.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      MSW – love this! A baby is still a baby, even with $75,000 earrings.

      This is exactly why I LOATHE these people (as well as Beyonce and her diamond bathtub for Blue Ivy). People in other parts of the world are living with open sewage, but Nori gets a gold toilet. I would be profoundly ashamed if my kid used $2000 diaper cream. To me, this behavior is like a mental illness. Kim knows she is a human urinal and she is trying to compensate for it with this grotesque display of excess.

      They may have wealth, but their values are dirt.

      • Ag says:

        i just said something akin to your point in the comment above. they should be embarrassed and ashamed, but they’re not. it’s gross. (and aren’t they all religious? i’m pretty sure that no religion teaches being selfish and self-indulgent.)

        and @msw – yes! i have a son who’s almost two. while my clothing situation has improved since the time he was younger, i pretty much still own nothing that doesn’t have food/drool/snot on it. 🙂

      • Anne tommy says:

        So agree. Dreadful stuff.

      • msw says:

        They absolutely do equate wealth with worth. It’s vile. People who flaunt such excessive opulence, greed and and consumerism make me twitchy.

        It is really fitting they think they should sh*t on solid gold toilets. Its such a good analogy for everything Kardashian.

      • lucy2 says:

        Good post.
        I have no problem with someone using their wealth to have a nice house, give their kids a great education, let them experience many things, travel, etc. But at some point it’s just excess, and it’s gross. I would be ashamed too, especially knowing there are children out there suffering. A village could probably eat for a year on what they spend on one of Nori’s outfits.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        I don’t want to get yelled at but aren’t you guys taking the bait by getting upset? Also, aren’t we yelling because of how we perceive this family? If it were little Prince George wouldn’t we coo and fuss?
        *takes cover behind the sofa*

      • wolfpup says:

        It’s the parents who are responsible for all this silliness. Babies just want to feel comfortable and loved. It is not so much Kate wanting her child to grow up in a bubble, as it is the two British jetsetters feeling entitled to live in one, One minute the BP is renovated for their royal status, and then the abandoned, for their country life (bucolic as it sounds). For the life of me, I do not understand the willingness of the British people to fund all the fun and games. Is it for bread and circuses?

        It’s rather hypocritical in my mind, that the KWest’s are just as prejudiced against the poor, that Kanye wails about for being black.

  4. Tiffany27 says:

    But did the magazine photoshop the babies?

  5. eliza says:

    Lol. “This girl will never ride in a Honda” Good grief and people say Paltrow is an elitist!

    I would have GLADLY given Nori my hideous LA Mer face cream for her butt. I hated it so much I used it on my elbows and feet.

  6. Lizzie says:

    I believe the Nori stuff before I would believe the George stuff.
    I feel for the little West, I do. I am convinced Kim is going to be one of those mothers who resents her daughter for simply being younger than her. Almost like the way Kim is almost passive aggressive about how young and ‘hot’ Kendell and Kylie are.
    It’s weird.

    • moe says:

      I always thought those pictures of her wearing her sisters bikini screamed LOOK AT ME ME ME!!!! NOT HER!!!! I’M THE HOT ONE! Insecure much?

      I think as kim ages and her daughter grows up , she will be one of those horrible mothers who become insecure of their own fading beauty and turn on their daughters in weird and undermining ways. You know the type – the mom who puts her 11 year old on a diet and flirts with the teenage boyfriends. Something tells me Kris is probably the standard barer for that kardashian behaviour.

      I would be utterly ashamed if this article was about me. Ok so they have money and fame. But so do brad and angelina and look how that couple gives back.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Kim isn’t nice to anyone, she isn’t going to magically change into a kind person, I feel very sorry for her daughter.

  7. lana86 says:

    poor Nori- she has everything, except for adequate, intelligent parents.

    • Diana says:

      Poor, little rich girl syndrome — she has it all, except a nurturing and loving family. Buying $2000 butt cream is not love, but attention, affection and quality time spent with the child are. I feel sorry for this little girl.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Everything they give her is for them. She doesn’t want or appreciate jewelry at her age. It’s just so sad.

      • Chris says:

        One thing certainly separates the KWs and the Cambridges….nothing on earth would induce the latter to have a toddler with pierced ears, even if it were instead ‘Georgina’.

    • Marieeeee says:

      @goodnames: Exactly! I’m sure she would take two unphotographed cuddles over all that stuff anytime. So sad

  8. Camilla says:

    It is truly an insane world that we live in…. And I am so tired of the Kardashians. I hope that my daughter won’t grow up to be a Kardashian fan (because they will probably still be around in ten years *dammit*)

  9. hutter says:

    “Queen changes his diapers” really made me laugh!!

    • Anastasia says:


    • ArtHistorian says:

      LOL. I doubt QEII has time to change George’s diapers, or that she sees him that much. And it’s Star – I seriously doubt that have any sources in the Palace.

      The Kardashians, however, seems exactly like people who have too much money for their own good so I kinda believe that they go completely overboard with the conspicious comsumption. And it is not for the child’s sake, it’s using the child as an accessory.

  10. Anastasia says:

    I highly doubt the Queen changes any diapers.

    • Chris says:

      That’s one thing I actually *would* believe!
      At least she can hand him back once she’s had a fix of baby. (My late Grandmother was mad for such opportunities late into her nineties).

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      She had her own children and plenty of grandchildren, why shouldn’t she change a nappy if she wants? She’s still a person, a grandmother or great-grandmother to someone who has no idea what “Queen” means, I bet she does enjoy time with baby George, I would and he’s not my grandson.

  11. Stephanie says:

    No way the queen changes diapers.

    And it’s one thing to buy your kids expensive materials, but f’ing diaper cream!? It literally gets smeared on the babies a$$. Sigh.

  12. An says:

    George has a personel assistent who gives him manicures? Insane.

    • LAK says:

      Otherwise known as a nanny.

      • An says:

        Still insane but it explicitly says it’s a personal assistant, the nanny (s) are mentioned further down.

    • Chris says:

      Hand on heart, I thought tiny hands and their fingernails were dealt with by mama biting the nails herself, keeping scissors out of the way til the child’s less likely to wriggle.
      (I should write a childcare book, it’d top the comedy charts at least.)

      • Emma says:

        That’s how I do it. When he’s breastfeeding I just bite his nails off for him. Works for us and it means I am not getting clawed to bits. *waits patiently for Baby Police to come yell at me about geeeerrrrrrmmmmmms*

  13. maybeiamcrazy says:

    Do nannies really curtsy to Prince George? So stupid. And Queen changes her diapers? I doubt it.

  14. Dawn says:

    How sad that it doesn’t say she has a million dollar education fund. Oh well Kim is about nothing more than excess anyway. And really she has done alright without an education and I am sure she thinks North will too because sex sells. I hope North goes north when grows up to get as far away as possible from her tacky parents.

    • LAK says:

      I doubt Kim K values an education. Her mother certainly doesn’t.

      I hope Kanye values an education considering his mother was an educator. I imagine North W has replaced the hole left by his mother, but let’s hope he remembers his mother’s values rather than allow the PMK values to be enforced onto North W.

    • Gypsy says:

      Don’t you think there would be millions of dollars put away in a trust fund that would cover a Yale or Harvard or Brown if North decides College is for her?
      Or North could sell her jewelery and easily afford College?
      The only difference between people like me and her is that her choices won’t effect her lifestyle.

      • LAK says:

        I’ve accidentally caught snippets of their show (3am, can’t sleep, try to watch TV and nothing on but endless Kardashians or QVC….), and PMK kept disparaging education as a concept and or undermining any attempts by Bruce to encourage education especially in the younger girls. As we all know she eventually pulled them out of school.

        The oldest girl (with 2 kids) is the only one with a college degree and you’ve got to give that to her being at college age whilst their father was still alive and could override PMK’s values.

        In conclusion, it isn’t the money, oit’s whether or not Kim K would think it important enough for NW.

      • lucy says:

        North’s parents are such controlling insecure people that when North actually does begin asserting herself and making her own choices, there is going to be quite the rumble. I look forward to Kim and Kanye’s disappointment when they find out that North is an individual and not a biological clone of servitude to either of them.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Kim is not doing alright in my book, money and fame are nothing if you’re miserable and her constant need to tamper with her appearance screams unhappiness. Money and fame cannot change how you feel inside about yourself, no amount of $2,000 butt cream is enough to make Kim happy.

  15. BeckyR says:

    Money doesn’t buy class but it can sure buy a lot of STUPID!

    • Chris says:

      And the irony is that excessive display teeters right on the edge of saying ‘lack of money, but trying to look loaded’.
      I am reminded of a child I often see round my way, in a pink buggy ( fair enough). Multiple diamante studs all around each ear, one in the flamin nose, toe rings, and a tattoo ( real….I saw it when it was new) The child csn’t be even 2 yet, but she has everything done to her that her Mama does to herself. No doubt she smokes dead sophisticated menthol fags at home, along with the Red Bull she lives on ( truly….the kid has a can every time I see her)

  16. shix says:

    Nori is such a beautiful little girl!! 😘 and Georgie is such a cutie!! I totally ignore my thoughts on the parents, baby pics always bring a smile to my face 😊 I pray that they choose their own personalities and path in life. Good luck pretty babies 😘

    • Sabrine says:

      Nori is really becoming more beautiful by the day. I saw some photos of her on The Daily Mail and she has changed so much lately. I think she looks much cuter with her hair slicked down and straighter. I don’t care to read about the excesses of the parents, not interested. But I do like to look at the latest photos of Nori. I doubt her parents are neglectful, just busy but I think she spends a good amount of time with them and other family members as well.

      • swack says:

        I like her hair curly over the slicked down hair. Which may be because my hair is so straight that it won’t hold any type of curl without a perm. My youngest granddaughter has curls and I just love them!!

  17. GiGi says:

    Ok… excess, excess, blah, blah, blah… but because I’m a jewelry wh0re… I can’t bag them for the jewelry bit. They have the money – it’s money they earned (*ahem* Waity & Wills) and it’s probably not jewelry she’ll wear as a baby, anyway.

    I am def. guilty of buying jewelry for my kids for later – when they’re old enough to care for it. Nothing insane, but a few nice things.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Ok but you said “nothing insane” (assuming not millions of dollars of jewelry for a one-year-old)….I don’t see the harm in buying jewelry for when the kids get older.

      I personally own just a few expensive pieces (that I rarely wear) and the rest is trash. I always end up losing anything of value anyway.

    • Wren33 says:

      I can imagine buying some fancy stuff to celebrate her birth and first birthday. Jewelery she can wear her whole life and pass on. I can’t imagine wasting hundreds of thousands on baby clothes that will get worn once, probably get ruined, and be outgrown in a matter of months. It offends my Yankee soul.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I’m with you Wren, my Scotch blood rebels. Children grow so quickly, it’s silly to waste money on expensive clothes that they won’t fit into next week.

  18. pix says:

    Kim must feel so empty to fill her baby’s life with some much meaning less stuff. Kim, how about you bond with your daughter on an emotional level instead of shopping for more stuff you’ll have to sell when your 15 minutes are over.

  19. LAK says:

    All the Kate/HM stuff is nonsense, but it’s hard not to believe the Kim K stuff because it speaks to everything Kim puts into the public arena.

    • Jen2 says:

      Have to agree. Any idiot so vain as to publish a book of ‘selfies’ would probably do all of this nonsense and then tell the tabloids about it. That birthday party and all the free designer clothes being prime examples. Excess is their middle names and the poor child always looks so stressed. The kid is just another very expensive accessory to them. So sad.

    • Em says:

      Why is it nonsense? Kate and William obviously have no qualms in spending the public’s money for unnecessary things.

      • LAK says:

        EM: WK might be taxpayer funded, but they don’t live as crassly as Kimye. Their lives are closer to rich aristocrats than vulgar displays of wealth. There is a very wide divide between the two lifestyles.

        And I have a bridge to sell you if you think HM changes PGtips’s diapers.

      • Em says:

        So because they’re royalty (only for the benefits) they’re somehow better and it’s more acceptable. I don’t think so. A needless waste of money is a needless waste of money no matter who you are. And it’s not even their own! SMH.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        It is not about who they are, it is how they spend their money. Rich aristocrats and royalty live a life in luxury but not in the vulgar way Kimye do. They are more subtle about it which does not necessarily mean they are better.

      • LAK says:

        EM: what @maybeiamcrazy said.

      • Olenna says:

        I beg to differ: I don’t think there’s anything subtle about the way the Cambridges spend “their” money either and I’m sure there are British subjects who resent paying for them and consider their home remodeling, holiday/vacation and clothing expenses vulgar. Funny how most of the negative comments about this article target North’s parent and give George’s a pass.

      • Em says:

        I really don’t think that spending other people’s money “subtly” gives them more class – and even then, I wouldn’t call constant vacations, shopping trips and renovations subtle.

        What @Olenna said!

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Spending needlessly is not the same thing as crass, overtly vulgar consumption. LAK was not placing a value scale on what the Cambridges buy, only clarifying that the nature of those purchases is quite different, and she didn’t appear to giving them a pass one way or another just because they are royal, only that renovating your palace/country estate etc is a bit different than, say, $2K bum cream or his and her gold plated toilets. That’s my take.

      • Danskins says:

        What @Em and @Olenna said!

        Gotta love the double standards. Not sure why North’s parents are getting the brunt of negative comments when both sets of parents have equally gross over-the-top spending habits.

    • CynicalCeleste says:

      I recall reading somewhere that the Queen doesn’t allow children at the dinner table until they have developed manners. Zero chance she is changing diapers.

      • Chris says:

        No, that doesn’t mean she is anti-toddlers, but that she deems it inappropriate to have them, and their own little needs and fun, at a table set for adults. (Personally, I completely agree.)
        I’ve seen many an interiors magazine in which there’s a wee table set aside for a separate dining provision for little kids, it’s not unusual.

      • CynicalCeleste says:

        Ok I take your point, separate issues. But i’d be willing to bet QEII has never changed a diaper in her life. Not even her own kids or grandkids, let alone great-grandson. No matter how arguably entranced or doting she may be, she’s from a different era and a different echelon where babies were handed off for the dirty work. And I’ve lost count at how many staff members attend to PG, so really, where would there even be a need or opportunity to change his diapers and what would be the point? If I’m wrong, i want photographic evidence 🙂

  20. Fran says:

    I can’t be the only one who thinks they look identical on that cover.

    re: Queen changing diapers ….yeah, right.

  21. Victoria1 says:

    I would like to see the butt cream repoed when they all go broke for being so f*****g stupid with their money. I’m cranky because I just got paid and am wiped out, again. I hate Hollywood assholes.

  22. Marmaduke45 says:

    $2k for a jar of “diaper cream” ? The mentality of people who can only have what they perceive to be the best, and in most cases equate quality and exclusivity with price, just boggles. Not always.

    Snippet of Creme De La Mer product review: “The price really is shocking considering that Crème de la Mer contains mostly seaweed extract, mineral oil, Vaseline, glycerin, wax-like thickening agents, lime extract, plant oils, plant seeds, minerals, vitamins, more thickeners, and preservatives. This rather standard moisturizer also contains some good antioxidants, but the jar packaging won’t keep them stable during use. This also contains a skin-stressing amount of eucalyptus oil, as well as Kathon CG, a preservative that is recommended for use only in rinse-off products. Consumers who have a “steadfast devotion” to this product are not only wasting their money but also hurting their skin.”

    Vaseline, Kim. How pedestrian.

    • LAK says:

      I really hope they aren’t putting it on the baby’s skin. Ditto nonsense like facials and what not. Babies have the skin we all would like to have. To ruin it with these products and what not is criminal.

      • jwoolman says:

        Yes, Nori will likely end up with an allergy to that $2000 mixture. Do we honestly believe Kim is rubbing it on the poor child herself? Neither she nor Kanye are into changing diapers.

        I can believe the massages but I’m sure Kim isn’t giving them. Massage is good for babies and that child is superstressed. But facials?!? For a baby?!? Whose skin is what, 21 months old max?!? Another allergy on its way for Nori. Kim is so clueless that if she weren’t rich, child protection would be at her door.

        George has such a better life. He has non-insane parents and he actually knows them and interacts with them. He’s destined to be king and all the stuff mentioned just goes along with his future job. His parents aren’t doing the crazy non-baby-friendly stuff Kim and Kanye are doing. They dress him normally and let him drool. He even gets to hang out with a dog. Happy baby George.

      • Chris says:

        You said it! Bonny Prince George is more likey to have had Waitrose’s Baby Bottom Butter, with none of those nasty things like mineral oils in it.
        Blimey though, did we ever hear of a sleb so blatantly using her baby as a doll? That kid will be a bundle of entitlement and insecurities at 11.

    • emmie_a says:

      This is what I wanted to comment on. LaMer is full of chemicals! Besides it being a rip-off price wise, it’s totally not safe for a baby’s super delicate skin. Kim is starting North off early I guess, to build an intolerance to all the crap she’ll be injecting during her life. Dumb people

  23. K says:

    At least Kim and Kanye aren’t living their ekstravagant lives on the taxpayer’s dime.

    • Danskins says:


      It’s their money so they get to do with it as they wish. It’s quite different from Will and Kate, who don’t actually work for a living.

  24. dorothy says:

    North has diamond earrings, flies in a private plane, but lacks a maternal mother. A woman that is more obsessed and concerned with herself, than her own child.

  25. Leaflet says:

    I just passed the most bratty @ss kids this morning. Cursing up a storm. Acting nasty, foul language. Two young males and a female. One of the males was noticeably a sibling to the female. I had head phones on going about my way. One young male said, “Aey man, stop cursing. You see that lady walking by.” To that the undisciplined male said to me (in a very low tone) “What you lookin’ at!” It wasn’t really a question because if he wanted to know my answer, I would have said nothing much. He was baiting me. I pretended I had music on in my ear phones even though I didn’t and turned my head in a natural side to side ( looking for activity on both sides of me) motion resting bak on him. I’m not stupid. The kid says it again a little louder, “What you lookin’ at!” I notice his sissy mugging me. I notice his friend, who has manners and class, saying lowly, “stop being disrespectful, that’s an adult, man. I continue walking because I am an adult. Yet, I notice the mouthy boy has on all the expensive clothes but the respectful one doesn’t. And I think to myself, the undisciplined boy probably listens to Kanye, Jay Z, Lil Boozie, T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj , and also probably can’t read past a 5th grade level. Seems to me as if parents are more worried today about what their kids have than them behaving with morality and decency and being well educated. It sure is a real shame.

      What? Hip-hop music equals disrespectful human beings? You need to get out more.

      • Leaflet says:

        Baby, he had on a Rick Ross t-shirt. And my point is, why are parents allowing their kids to listen to that music because it reflects their behavior. Also, why are these parents not disciplining their kids. It’s sad.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I love hip-hop, but she has a point about the emphasis on materialism that is so prevalent in a lot of mainstream hip-hop–or at least that’s what I took away from her comment.

        I’m actually disgusted that a child would speak to an adult like that….smh…

      • An says:

        So? Hip-hop doesn’t create horrible human beings. That’s on parent’s who don’t properly supervise their children. And what part does global corporations and media play? It’s a billion dollar industry, of course the type of hip hop that’s “loudest” is the type that only reflects what appeals to the mass market and our society.

        And don’t call me baby. 😒

      • Leaflet says:

        AN, I see that you are not an adult. Best you not reply to me at all, okay baby?

      • An says:

        Wow, you’re the childish one here. Grow up.

        And @OKitt, no she didn’t. She made an assumption based on stereotypical and discriminatory views. Just because people listen to hip-hop doesn’t make them illiterate douchebags.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        You don’t have to tell me!
        Plenty of thought-provoking hip-hop out there. Might not be the stuff you hear on the radio but it’s out there and on my ipod 🙂

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        You were making great points but in all honesty, despite his Rick Ross tee, you invented an entire list of artists you thought the child listens to and made connections between that and the poor behavior/character of the child. Just because profiling will eventually yield a match doesn’t make the practice fair, accurate or humane.our interior landscape primarily informs our character and the outer trappings we gather about ourselves (music, clothes, friends etc) are more likely to display/prove that than engender it. Hip hop doesn’t create sh*tty kids but sh*tty kids have been known to listen to hip hop.
        And calling An baby after she expressed dislike for it was completely unnecessary. Sometimes when you are irritated you have to take a few deep breaths before responding. I understand that I have no real right to advise/put in my two cents but I usually find your posts to be thought provoking, informed and very articulate so I am giving my opinions here respectfully.

    • Dawn says:

      Oh you are so bang on. What a sad little group.

  26. Syko says:

    It’s still sh*t, whether you use a gold toilet or a porcelain one.

    I find this excess to be nauseating. With as much poverty and need as there is in the world, to see these people spending money like this is ridiculous. I know, I know, it’s their money. But wouldn’t it be a terrific legacy to establish a scholarship fund, or send a huge contribution to Doctors Without Borders? You can’t take the gold toilet and jewelry with you.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      So much word to your comment.

      Every time there’s a post that details the excesses of the wealthy, there are 8 million comments screaming “it’s their money they can do what they want!!”
      No one’s telling them they can’t spend their money how they want, just giving out opinion about it.
      It’s gross, period.

      • Leaflet says:

        @ AN,
        I’m tired of that stereotype argument. Are you implying that I’m racist? I AM BLACK. Grow up. Everyone doesn’t see out of the small lenses you do.

        Only a fool would argue that music and tv shows with adult content wouldn’t have a negative influence on teens. Why do you think they made up the whole censorship system in America?

      • Leaflet says:

        There is positive hip hop music out there, but it’s mostly underground. Yet, most of the rappers I mentioned aren’t making it. I do listen to an underground channel that plays positive hip hop music. I don’t care for commenters like AN, who are disrespectful and rude. She doesn’t sympathize with the situation but rather attacks me off the bat. I don’t have to like Jay Z or Kanye, and I don’t. However, I do like Andre 3000, The Fugees, the old school Goodie MOB and the old school OUTKAST. When I was a kid, I listened to music that called me a ho€. I grew up and realized that that’s not what I am going to accept from a man, so I no longer allowed the music to influence me any longer.

      • An says:

        LOL. You are hilarious. Instead of forming a well thought out answer, you act like a victim. No dice. No one has a monopoly on being discriminatory or believing in stereotypes – it’s indoctrined in everyone through media. But you obviously don’t react well to logical answers so buh bye.👋

      • Leaflet says:

        You’re the idiot that actually made a pointless argument, which you instigated with me so STFU.

      • An says:

        LOL. So grown, much intelligent, wow good, such smart, very logic… 👀✋

      • Leaflet says:

        I would have given you a full answer had you been respectful and genuinely asked for one out of good nature, but that’s not what you wanted to do because you wanted to be a troll instead. Just like you’re trolling now. But you know what, that’s it for me today. Enjoy the rest of your day under your bridge bridge troll.

      • An says:

        LOL. Demanding respect while calling me a troll and an idiot. So much delusion. No one is here to baby you so grow up. ✌️

  27. Blythe says:

    I’ll be honest: if I had Kim Kardashian or Princess Catherine money, I would seldom change diapers. The first few years of motherhood can be rough and having someone there to help and teach you the ropes is something, I think, every new mom should have (whether is be through the child’s grandma or babysitter). There’s nothing wrong with having a nanny, but I think Kim doesn’t realize that the nanny is not supposed to be an actual REPLACEMENT for a mother!

    • LAK says:

      Kim K ALWAYS kills my argument that nannies are a good thing to have and their presence isn’t a negative comment on a person’s parenting or connection to their child.

      She’s set back the argument back to the ‘seen, but not heard or even recognised except to show off’ times.

  28. Wilma says:

    I don’t really believe it based on what we have seen from Nori so far. Have not seen crazy accesoiries or jewelry and her clothing doesn’t seem to be abnormal (just a bit drab).

    • Lola says:

      I have not seen every picture of Nori, but (and just to play devil’s advocate in a way) what if the expensive clothes are not worn on a daily basis, just for pictures or so she won’t stain them, …. or what if the nanny would not want Nori to wear the couture when she is with her … I just get the impression from Kim K. and K.W that they would dock the cost of the stained clothes from the nanny’s pay…

  29. swack says:

    Is anyone else bothered by the fact that Kim is giving her daughter hydrating facials (if it is even true – this is coming from Star magazine)? Baby’s skin is usually sensitive and doesn’t need that type of thing. Also, when is she wearing designer clothes? All you really see her in are plain blah outfits.

    • LAK says:

      That stuck out for me too. Since this is Star magazine, i’m assuming it’s not true.

      Clothing wise, designer baby clothes don’t always scream their labels like adult clothing and are as dull as anything at the gap. Look at Harper 7 Beckham. Head to toe major designers from birth and no one pointed it out.

      • swack says:

        So my next question would be then why buy designer if they look like every other baby outfit you can buy at any retail store? Guess I don’t know what I would have done if I had the money to buy those types of things and could get them cleaned properly when they got messed up. Just seems a waste. I’m sure there are other celebs that do the same thing. I even tell my own grandchildren not to dress the kiddos in their good clothes when they are at my house because they will get dirty and I don’t want them to ruin any good clothes. My youngest has learned not to put white on them (we play outside most of the day).

      • Lola says:

        I would add, children grow up fast!!! If everything they own is designer, darn, it is not only the stains but the “keep buying” when the child grows out of it quickly.

        Plus, wasn’t there an article about Kate buying in an outlet? That’s how I buy clothes for the young ones in the family … outlet and the mega deals and out of season, etc. etc. etc.

      • Chris says:

        The Beckhams are a much better comparison than the Cambridges. Harper looks adored because of her own and her father’s smiles, rather than being festooned in bling. And instead of a golden loo, she has a personal Damien Hirst in her bedroom!
        Both families are nouveaux riches compared to the Cambridges, but even between them we can see a yawning gap in good taste.

      • LAK says:

        Chris: absolutely. The Beckhams are more subtle with the stuff they adorn Harper 7, but it’s just as expensive as the obviously labelled. I remember one of her first appearances at VB’s fashion show……my first thought was goodness, baby in cashmere and hermes coming through!!!

        BTW: do you remember when the first child was born and VB went around in a LV baby papoose and diaper bag? Those were the days of in your face consumption. These days, they are subtle about it all whilst spending as always.

        Finally, have you looked at the clothes VB is selling on for charity? These are primarily her pre-USA clothing ie before DB was transferred. I’ve never seen a tackier wardrobe in my life. The shocker is that most, if not all are sold out!!!!.

        Swack: they buy baby designer clothes because they can. Who cares about the practicalities in reality or on the purse strings. They’ll simply buy some more.

      • Chris says:

        Yes indeed….VB has turned into an excellent model of restrained taste, learning quite early on that one thing riches can do is give you the freedom from conformity, in your appearance, and in your aspirations.
        You know I look at Hello mag: well there are squiliionaires (or wives of) in there who spend fortunes, and look like they cost £50 an hour, if you know what I mean.

      • LAK says:

        Chris: I know what you mean…LOL 😉

        That said, i’m envious that the baby has a Damien Hurst on her nursery walls.

      • Chris says:

        Yes, that’s one lucky Harper 7! I read it was David’s idea, which is a lovely thought (he is a dead ringer for my brother, so I doubly like him) I’d really love to know what other art they have; I bet they’ve one of T Emin’s neons.
        We also know that they have Kelly Hoppen decorate their homes, so that means rather more taupe than gold and zebra print etc.
        ( I loved the answer Nicky Haslam gave, when asked what he would never have in his home: ‘Kelly Hoppen’!!)

    • lucy says:

      Yes! Chemicals can be very harmful to skin, and can be systemically absorbed and distributed throughout the body when applied to skin.

    • lucy says:

      If someone is using hair relaxer to straighten North’s curls, that is also potentially harmful. Lye is corrosive and burns.

  30. Nicole says:

    The contrast between the moms extremely image-conscious, controlled faces and babies’ super expressive little faces is hilarious.

  31. Jenny12 says:

    They’re babies. It’s not necessary to do all this, especially on the taxpayers’ dime.

  32. Lis says:

    $2000 diaper cream = more money than brains
    Think of all the people she could be helping with the money she is wasting …
    Sad, shallow ppl.

  33. Gypsy says:

    They are (although this article is fake) missing one important detail, North has already started paying for her keep, as per with her recent modeling job…The taxpayers will never have to contribute a dime to North’s life.
    Also, I would think that putting your money in property, jewelery/art and other objects of value would be a proper way to dodge the tax-man’s axe, and when you have maxed out your deductions you turn around and give your child lots of valuables – Remember if you are rich whenever you spend it’s considered a taxable deductible loss.
    Not to forget that money doesn’t appreciate but these valuables grows in value over long periods.

    • jwoolman says:

      Personal expenses aren’t tax deductible in the US. Only business expenses and some medical expenses and some charitable donations (if you make enough money to use a different form rather than the standard deductible) are deductible. So unless they are engaging in extremely creative accounting, all those gold toilets and baby jewels and butt cream are not deductible for them. Of course, maybe they will list her occupation as “model” to get a deduction for such things for the little lass… If they are being creative, though, one random audit will get them into trouble.

      • Gypsy says:

        Every fool knows that if you have a lot of money coming in, in the hundreds of thousands/millions you incorporate….If your accountant doesn’t tell you that then he/she is incompetent.

        Every baby wipe/house office/every trip in private or commercial aircraft/every vehicle bought/ every dollar spent is being recorded and deducted by their company (INC) accountants, only poor/uneducated people with new money don’t know that.
        ALSO, being (yourself) a company saves you from being cleaned out by a lawsuit (limited liability company), so though they don’t advertise their business there is a off shore company that deducts and limited their exposure to liability.

        Kanye is not a person – He is a corporation and so are the Kardashians, due to the line of business they are in, it’s unavoidable.

  34. TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

    But she doesn’t have parents that actually love and care for her; think of what that money could do to help the refugees from the violence in Syria and Iraq, and the children escaping the drug gangs in Honduras, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. They are all disgusting. When will the public and the media be sick of them?

    • Em says:

      That argument can be made for ALL celebs. They make an insane amount of money.

    • Gypsy says:

      The Royal family has billions of pounds/dollars and huge estates where they have gained their wealth on the backs of the taxpayers but they contribute so very little the sufferings even in their own country.
      To me the Royals are like those little fish who follow whales (taxpayers) and eat the debris and dead skin, parasites.

    • lucy says:

      While we are each entitled to hold an opinion about people’s self-aggrandizing behavior and about how people acquire their money, how people spend or save their money is up to the people whose money it is.

      Ostentation is gauche.

      @Gypsy, I am enjoying your analogy about the royal family!

      • Gypsy says:


        I really agree with you on that because I too believe when it comes to personal possessions, I have no say in your decisions, just as you have no say in mine.
        Just as long as Kim and Kanye pay their taxes as members of our little society, I have no problems.

        Thanks, I have never been a royalist even though my mother was crazy in love with them. I would go so far as to call them the human version of the appendix, an appendage no longer needed or wanted.

    • snowflake says:

      well, I don’t agree with that way of thinking. Where do you draw the line? if you make 50k, are you required to help the needy? Or 30k? How do you decide the income level at which point are you required to help the needy? I love helping people and if I had more money, I would donate a ton. but it should be my choice, not dictated by my income level. the bottom line is they make the money, they should have the right to spend it as they wish. after all, that is why people work, so they can buy what they want. otherwise why work? you have to take some pleasure in your life and work just doesn’t cut it.

  35. Onthefly says:

    I think its unfair to compare the lifestyles of Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton. While I agree that the degree of materialism Kardashians endorse is appalling, I won’t condemn her for it as it’s not my place to. She works for the money she earns and as long as she’s paying her requisite taxes she has the right to spend it anyway she wants to (even if its a gold toilet). Who are we to tell her how to spend her money. If she wants to spoil her kid rotten, by all means go ahead. You’re the only one who has to deal with a rotten kid. Middleton on the other hand is married to the future nominal head of country, enjoys innumerable perks funded by a huge amounts of tax-payer funded money. Its despicable that people in the UK have to curtsey to a baby. Such is the entitlement endemic to a these people who have done nothing to earn the position they enjoy, but marry or be born into it. Considering you enjoy such enormous privileges with farcical merits and education, the least you could do is live a humble lifestyle with the grace a future monarch of a country with such a heritage. But we see how that’s clearly not happening with these fickle, unapologetic spenders who do the bare minimum to contribute to the economy.

  36. Dommy Dearest says:

    I wish magazines would stop comparing these two. The Kartrashians are NOT any type of royalty. Except of Golden showers to which Kim is Queen.

    • Snowflake says:

      Thank you! Now I know their pr team is behind this story, because Kim has compared herself to princess Kate. Kk is not princess, just spoiled rich woman like Paris. Only diff Kim was smart enough to marry well.

  37. Cupcake says:

    Even slathered in Creme de la mer her name is still North West.

    That being said, NW is way cuter than GAL!

  38. me says:

    I think the Kardashians purposely put out ridiculous rumors about themselves and how much money they have/spend. We all know Kim is cheap. If she’s using $2000 lotion on her baby it’s because she got it as a gift or got it for free (in exchange for free twitter promotion).

    Also, Kim is not a billionare.

  39. Mischa Jane says:

    I normally think these types of stories are ridiculously made up. However, Kim is totally a person who would spend $2,000.00 on diaper cream. She would.

  40. rudy says:

    I think it’s disgusting how Kim dresses that baby like herself. She wears distressed jeans, so does the kids. She wears black slinky, so does the baby.

    I bet Nori has no idea who Kim is anyway. Kim only holds the kid when the paps are there making photos.

  41. BlackVeronicaLake says:

    Everyone is saying Kim works! What does she do?? I guess being in the longest living profession is work. Taking selfies…

  42. Gypsy says:

    I have noticed that there are quite of a lot of people on “Social Media” with lots of uninformed/mal-informed knowledge but that doesn’t stop them having strong opinions and advice.
    I once worked for a Managing Director and it was a beauty to watch him navigate life without paying for anything and yet having the finer things in life.
    1. As an example of how business is conducted: the Kardashian don’t get paid by The E! Network, the Network pays the Kardashian company and the Kardashian company pays them an amount that covers their living expenses and gives them company credit cards and pays Lawyers and Accountants and Nannies and LearJets bills, so whenever you sue them they financial exposure is company limited and the company is insured so the insurance pays out, not them…..These are all paper companies, but legal.
    2. Kanye is the same it’s standard industry process to work with the other person’s company so the money doesn’t come under personal/individual income tax 30%/40% laws but as a company you end up paying between 0%-25% taxes, but then your company is registered as a foreign company so you also get a deduction for that, so the U.S Govt could end up owing you, if you are a tax pirate.
    Many companies in the USA don’t pay any taxes because of tax shelters and dodges like above.
    All have to do is have an office/residence (as Kanye in Paris) outside of the U.S.A and you are able to register for additional tax breaks, as Independent Contractors under the IRS 1099 code..

  43. Amy says:

    $2,000 worth of beauty cream and likely not a single book.

  44. ketjo says:

    This is a complete bull crap story…….
    Have you ever noticed the more People brag about how much money they have really don’t have anywhere near to what they say they do…..Real Millionaires and Billionaires don’t brag they don’t splash their worth for the world to see…the don’t constantly throw their wealth into the spotlight…. The Kardashians for all their Bragging are not multi millionaires…its all Smoke and Mirrors….They are Con Artists and shysters on the make…..and lastly …That little girl is not nor will she ever be a Princess..only in her father’s mind…..and George is a genuine Prince… no comparison at all….. another story written and promoted by Kris Jenner ….

  45. Marianne says:

    First of all I doubt North travels on a private plane by herself.

    I get that you can spend your money on whatever you want, but I just can’t see why you want to spend so much money on stuff like baby clothes. They are going to grow out of it. They could break all that expansive jewellery. $2,000 cream is going to be no different than some $25 cream. Its crazy.

  46. Melanie says:

    Gross. This whole family is just gross. Poor North West.
