North & Blue’s diva battle
Inside the luxe lives – and rivalries – of Kim & Bey’s babes
Celebs are nothing if not competitive – hey, you don’t reach the top of the A-list by being Mrs Nice Guy. But if you thought the rivalry between Kim Kardashian and Beyonce was fierce, it’s nothing on the competition they’ve sparked between their daughters. In one corner, we have North West, the fur-loving five-yearold who’s more used to sitting next to magazine royalty Anna Wintour in the front row at Fashion Week than having play dates at home. And in the other, we have Blue Ivy Carter, the girl with the killer stare who, at six years old, has no time for childish antics. Both are forces to be reckoned with – and their competitive mammas aren’t going to let a little thing like childhood stand in the way of young (young!) Hollywood domination!
“There’s a rivalry between [Kim and Bey] and it most certainly extends to their daughters,” says a Kardashian insider. “Kim is obsessed with her legacy, the next generation. And she doesn’t care how early she needs to start.”
North knows best
First up, let’s take a close look at Kim and Kanye West’s firstborn, who was recently unveiled as Fendi’s newest ambassador and is already designing her own clothes.
According to a source close to little Northie, her ’tude is only matched by her expanding roll call of employees.
“North has a bigger entourage than her mum and dad,” an insider tells Heat mag. “Wherever she goes, even at home, it’s a huge, orchestrated event. Her chefs have to prepare special meals and snacks for
her – often on demand – and she travels with at least two bodyguards because Kim and Kanye are hyper-vigilant about security.”
But that’s just the half of it among North’s ever-growing posse, she has a nanny and a personal assistant (plus their standbys), six tutors covering everything from music to literature, and a crack team of stylists. As the source explains, “North doesn’t mess around. She has the biggest and best entourage money can buy.”
Frankly, it’s no surprise that North is surrounding herself with minions, because her arch-rival means business.
Blue on the big screen
During her short life, Blue has stolen the spotlight wherever she goes, winning praise for the nonchalant way she wields power – even over her A-list parents Jay-z and Beyonce.
And now, according to sources, she’s about to rule Hollywood as the star of her very own movie all about her fabulous life.
“Blue loves performing and Bey wants to be the architect of her daughter’s career, rather than leaving it to strangers,” a source reveals. “She’s talking to producers and wants Blue to play herself in the movie, which she’ll direct. Bey and Jay will have full creative control as executive producers.”
Yikes – wait until Kim finds out about this!
Of course, the Carter versus West rivalry has roots that long predate their little cherubs. But now, North and Blue’s one-upmanship has taken things to a whole new level – and it’s far from over!
“We think [Kim] should just let North be a kid,” says the Kardash source.
“But she won’t hear of it. She’s just so competitive.” ■
