Kim Kardashian has angrily hit back at rumours that her five-year-old daughter North has a boyfriend.
The romance speculation began when Caiden Mills, the seven-year-old son of rapper Consequence, shared an image of himself with his arm slung around North’s shoulders. He captioned the Instagram picture, which he shared on 9 February, “Boo’d up”.
North’s reality star mother Kim was asked about the report as she left the Hollywood Beauty Awards on Sunday night, when a waiting reporter questioned whether it’s “too soon for North West to have a boyfriend?”
Looking shocked, Kim replied: “She doesn’t have a boyfriend. Like, is that for real? She’s five!”
Consequence is a friend of Kim and her husband Kanye West, as he used to be signed to the rapper’s Good Music record label. And Caiden has long been a pal of North’s, shouting out to the young girl on Instagram earlier this month.
“Shout out to Northie, Babygirl I’ll see you soon,” he wrote on 6 February, along with three emojis of a kissing face.
Later that day he shared another snap of himself holding a box with a gold pendant inside, writing: “She’s gonna LoVe It. Wrap that up sir, I’ll take it.” He didn’t specifically say the present was for North, but the picture came just three days before Caiden’s “Boo’d up” snap with the five-year-old.
It seems Caiden is a fan of lavishing gifts on his nearest and dearest. To mark Valentine’s Day, he splashed out on a heart-shaped box of candy and a gift from renowned jewellers Tiffany and Co., writing: “Love is in the air.” Again, Caiden didn’t identify the lucky recipient of the gifts.
