Kim Kardashian Defends North West Amid Painting Controversy

(Page Six) – Kim Kardashian is going head to head with Instagram critics claiming her daughter, North West, did not actually create the artwork Kardashian showed off on Tuesday.
“DON’T PLAY WITH ME WHEN IT COMES TO MY CHILDREN!!!” the Skims founder said in her Instagram story. “My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured.”
“North worked incredibly hard on her painting, which took several weeks to complete,” she continued. “As a proud mom, I wanted to share her work with everyone. I’m seeing op-ed pieces in the media and social media from grown adults breaking down whether or not my child actually painted this,” she continued, alluding to the popular theory that the piece was in fact a Bob Ross painting. “How dare you see children doing awesome things and then try to accuse them of NOT being awesome!?!?!”
Kardashian’s BFF Tracy Romulus — whose daughter Ryan is also talented with a paintbrush — defended the girls on social media earlier in the day.
“Both girls are in art class together and learning oil painting techniques from an instructor,” she told fans. “They spend weeks at a time on a single painting and are incredibly proud of themselves once they complete a project.”
Romulus added that North, 7, and Ryan follow a curriculum that encourages their own interpretation of the artwork at hand.
