Kanye West has not bought his daughter North her own mini SUV and a nearly $80,000 diamond tiara for Christmas, despite a new report. Gossip Cop has learned it is not true. The story, originally published in Heat, was picked up and shared by a number of outlets, including the Mirror.

According to the paper, West and Kim Kardashian have some “VERY special gifts lined up” for the 18 month old. A so-called “source” says West “went totally OTT (over the top) and bought her a diamond-encrusted tiara, so when she plays dress-up, she’ll be a real princess.” Actually, a real princess would mean she’s born to a royal, but that’s neither here nor there. The source goes on say, “He’s hoping she’ll treasure it for all of her childhood years. It’s probably worth about £50k [$78,500], at least.”

But that’s not all. The Mirror’s story also notes that West bought North “one of those baby cars – an exact copy of his matte-black SUV. He thinks it’s the coolest thing ever, and it’s cost him around £10k [$15,500].” It’s not true, and Kardashian herself even said last week, “We try not to spoil, but we have something nice that I think she’ll really love… fun play stuff.” And that’s not a diamond tiara nor a mini SUV.

Of course, the Mirror is the same publication that manufactured a tale about Kardashian sending Kate Middleton notes while they were both pregnant and even wrongly claimed that the reality star once “forgot” North in a Paris hotel as she was preparing to head to the airport. Regardless, a source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop, the over-the-top gifts story is “trash.”
