Kim Kardashian Says North West's Fashion Week Rap Is a 'Remix' After Being Called Out For Similarities to Child Star

Kim Kardashian took to social media to respond after North West was accused of plagiarizing her impromptu rap at Paris Fashion Week on Monday (March 2).

The drama all started after the parents of kiddie Instagram star ZaZa's posted on social media asking the Kardashian-Wests to credit their daughter's original song, which contained lyrics similar to the one North performed at dad Kanye West's Yeezy Season 8 show.

"What @kimkardashian (Kanye west) are doing with their daughter... with the inspiration of ZaZa & our family in mind is okay... we not mad BUT..PLS SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!! We admire Kanye west, and adore his journey. However, we don’t wanna feel like our daughter’s journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED," they wrote.

The reality star promptly put out the fire in the comments section of the post, writing, "We love you, North is a huge fan and records in the studio all the time with her dad and is inspired by ZaZa and loves Lay Lay too! Todays performance of North’s remix of ZaZa’s song was something she asked to do at the last minute and a complete surprise. I didn’t mean to not give credit where credit was due" and suggesting the two pint-sized rappers meet soon.

While Kardashian then took to Twitter to give ZaZa a shout-out, the Insta-famous six-year-old's parents seemed appeased by the beauty mogul's note, writing back, "All love, all good" in the comments.

Check out the back-and-forth between Kardashian and ZaZa's parents on Instagram below.
