Kim Kardashian Defends Daughter North's Oil Painting After Fans Can't Believe a 7-Year-Old Made the Art

The reality star defended her daughter's artwork, as well as shared some of Kanye West's old paintings as a child.

Kim Kardashian West is defending daughter North. The reality star posted a stunning oil landscape painting that her 7-year-old daughter did and was surprised to receive criticism online.

After people on social media started questioning whether Kim and Kanye West's eldest daughter painted the mountainous, lakeside creation, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star stood up for her daughter.

"Don't play with me when it comes to my children," Kim began her Instagram Story message, before sharing North 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, adding that as a "proud mom" she wanted to share her work with everyone.

"I'm seeing op-ed pieces in the media and social media from the grown adults breaking down whether or not my child actually painted this!" Kim exclaimed. "How dare you see children doing awesome things and then try to accuse them on NOT being awesome?!"

She concluded by telling people to "stop embarrassing" themselves with the negativity and "allow every child to be GREAT!"

North, meanwhile, does take after her famous father. Last year, North took the stage during Kanye's show at Paris Fashion Week, to deliver her very first public rap performance.

"To see her up there, I honestly just started crying. Because I'm happy for her, but I'm so nervous for her," Kim said during a KUWTK episode. "I'm so proud at how confident she is. She obviously gets that from her dad, and it just makes me so happy that she's not afraid to try anything. That, to me, was just so much fun to see."
