In the photos, snapped during her sleepover birthday bash, the oldest of Kim and her ex-husband Kanye West‘s four children was spotted with a black iPhone dangling from her wrist.
The device was in a case with a small loop attached to help hold it and the case was personalized with North’s name.
The photos made their way to Reddit where commenters had a field day picking apart Kim’s previous reveals about how she parents and the rules she sets in her home.
A Kardashian skeptic began a thread titled: “Didn’t Kim say that North does not have a phone so she does not know anything?”
One fan noted: “On the latest episode, I remember her saying that the kids only watch certain things on TV and she limits what shows they can watch, so like no E! Entertainment style paparazzi shows. I don’t recall her saying anything about the phones though…”
Someone else speculated: “I commented this before somewhere but I think Kim says the kids don’t know what’s going on to protect their privacy and not have the paparazzi or fans inappropriately shouting things at the kids to see their reaction or in (delusional) hopes of an actual response.
“Remember her reaction when one of the paparazzi guys asked her how she feels about Kanye’s antisemitic comments in front of North and she snapped at the guy and told him not to ever bring that up in front of her kids?”
A third commenter wrote: “An alternative: I take care of my younger sister and she has a phone, but I have a lot of restrictions on it and she can’t visit websites without me approving it and can’t download or delete apps without my approval. No social media is allowed because she ran into problems with it in the past.
“So North could very well have a lot of restrictions on it & it’s just easier to say she doesn’t have a phone/doesn’t have access to it.”
Another fan wrote: “IIRC Kim and Kanye got North a phone as a Christmas present in 2021. She mentioned it on Gwyneth Paltrow’s podcast last year.”
Someone else chimed in: “I am so sure those phones are HEAVILY monitored and have a lot of restrictions on them.”
North frequently appears in TikTok videos on the account she shares with her mom.
Sometimes Kim is in the clips as well and sometimes North stars solo.
Fans have been buzzing about the Skims mogul’s daughter’s phone access, recently slamming Kim for appearing in an inappropriate video with her daughter.
Still, Kim maintains that she has complete control over what her daughter sees on her phone and on TV.
During a season three episode of The Kardashians, the beauty mogul revealed the extremes she goes to in order to protect her kids from their dad Kanye’s antics.
Speaking with Kris Jenner, she confessed how challenging it is to shield her children from her ex’s online attacks and all the drama, revealing that she has spent a lot of time and energy acting as the “clean-up crew.”
Kris responded: “Imagine trying to explain this to a nine-year-old, North, who I’m sure is hearing something and maybe she won’t say it.
“And that’s what breaks my heart.”
She appeared stunned as the mom of four revealed: “She actually doesn’t know and that’s what’s so crazy is like when stuff is said, it’s a chain to my whole household. No TV, only Apple TV.
“I can’t risk an Access Hollywood ‘coming up next’ or anything on the news coming up next about what their dad mentioned and they want to watch.”
She concluded, appearing to get a little choked up: “I have to figure out a way to, like, protect and so they still haven’t seen anything but I go into crisis mode.”
In a confessional interview, she said of the conflict with Kanye: “I am the one being accused for so many things and blamed for so many things and it really, really is hurtful and it sucks but I can control how I react and I can control if I’m a mess then my kids will see that.”
Kim opened up to Angie Martinez about the strict rules in place in her home to shield her kids from the drama back in December 2022.
During the interview, she discussed co-parenting with Kanye and her home rules.
The SKKN founder told the radio VJ at the time that she goes above and beyond to shelter her children.
Kim said at the time: “My kids, they don’t know anything. At school, some of my best friends are the teachers, so I know what goes on at recess, I know what goes on at lunchtime, I hear what’s being talked about. None of the kids have ever said anything to my kids.”
She went on: “Social media, my kids aren’t – North has a TikTok account on my phone and my phone only. She’s – they’re just not on social media. They don’t see stuff. I keep, you know – when stuff’s going down, like, I protect stuff in the house as far as like, the TVs and the content.”
Kim briefly got emotional, confessing: “Co-parenting, it’s really f**king hard.”
She added: “I had the best dad and I had the best memories and the greatest experience and that’s all I want for my kids as long as they can have that, that’s what I want for them.”
