Kimye have done it again...

For most six-year-olds, Christmas morning means toys, maybe some books… hey, even a puppy if they’re super lucky. But North West isn’t most six-year-olds.

WATCH: This is what Kim’s been up to this Christmas…

And her parents, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, aren’t your average parents either.

So we were equal parts horrified and unsurprised when Kim took to Instagram to share the gift she and her rapper hubby had bought to put under the tree for their eldest this year: a custom-made, one of a kind jacket that once belonged to Michael Jackson.

“For Christmas, Kanye and I gave North this jacket and this was Michael Jackson’s jacket that he wore with Elizabeth Taylor,” Kim said as she showed off the black velvet outerwear on her Instagram story.

“North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this.”

We take it North was good this year, because her doting folks paid an eye-watering $94,790 for the piece, which is decorated with a red band on the right arm, and a sparkly rhinestone motif that hangs from shoulder to shoulder.

Michael wore the blinged-out jacket twice – once to his close friend Elizabeth Taylor’s birthday celebrations and once to the Cannes Film Festival for the screening of his short film Michael Jackson’s Ghosts in 1997.

So we won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas and we had it tacked up so she can wear it,” Kim continued, showing where they’d taken up the sleeves and waistband with semi-permanent tacking so that it could be undone as North gets older.

“It can grow with her, and she can have this for her whole life. And she is so grateful and so excited.”

Kim has been making a habit of being extra this Christmas (by which we mean… all year long, every single year), and came under fire recently for unashamedly using Photoshop in order to nail the perfect holiday snap of her family of six. 

Kim appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss the picture and she admitted to photoshopping North in.

“It was a time thing and it was hard to wrangle everyone together so I said I’ll just do my own family,” she said.

“It was so much anxiety with the four kids, North was having a day and I said fine we’ll do it without you but then she said she just wanted to shoot with me. So I said fine we’ll just Photoshop her in. So that’s not actually her in the picture. The anxiety I went thought to get that picture. There’s always one.”
