Did North West Really Paint This?

In the midst of KKW Beauty promos and monochromatic bikini pictures, Miss Kim Kardashian West sprang this image on us yesterday — a painting of a beautiful mountainous landscape signed “North” (with a smiley face). “My little artist North,” she captions it. We’re sorry, what? North West, a 7-year-old, painted this Bob Ross–esque masterpiece? We find it hard to believe. If this were true, Kris Jenner would have found a way to use this talent a long time ago, selling North by Northwest painted mugs or something. North’s alleged art teacher’s daughter came to defend her on TikTok, showing herself painting the exact same image as part of her curriculum.

More evidence piled up on Twitter, showing another child painting the exact same mountain.

Still, we’re going to need to see some painting videos, Kim. Maybe North can share the tutorial?

Update, February 9, 5 p.m.: Kim has since posted a series of Instagram Stories directed at the media (hi), in which she seemed to be upset with the questioning of her daughter’s painting skills. “DON’T PLAY WITH ME WHEN IT COMES TO MY CHILDREN!!!” she wrote. “NORTH WEST PAINTED THAT PERIODTDDDDDABCDEFGZFDT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” She also posted some of Kanye’s old paintings, showing that artistry runs in the family.
