Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West gave their eldest daughter North one of the late Michael Jackson's lavishly decorated jackets as a bizarre Christmas gift.

On Christmas Eve, Kim told fans on her Instagram Story with video, "For Christmas, Kanye and I gave North this jacket and this was Michael Jackson's jacket that he wore with Elizabeth Taylor. And North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this."

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians queen revealed that she and her husband won the black jacket with a dazzling design of crystals, pearls chains and a red arm band at an auction.

It's reportedly worth $65,625.

"She is so grateful and so excited," Kim said of their daughter's reaction.

The coat is obviously too big for North, who is just 6 years old, but Kim explained in Tuesday's video, "We had it tacked up so she can wear it, and the sleeves are half tacked up so when she gets older we can untack this sleeve and it can grow with her and she can have this for her whole life."

Inside the jacket, photos of Jackson wearing the look alongside Taylor lined the pockets.

Jackson, who shocked the world with his death at age 50 in 2009, had worn the jacket to close pal Taylor's 65th birthday party and a Cannes Film Festival screening of his film, Ghost, in 1997.

Kim and Kanye's strange gift will shock many as Jackson's legacy is in tatters after fresh charges of child molestation.

This year's HBO documentary Leaving Neverland exposed Wade Robson and James Safechuck's claims that the singer had molested them when they were boys.

In 2005, Jackson was acquitted of charges of molesting Gavin Arvizo, a cancer patient in remission who was thirteen years old at the time of the alleged abuse.

Jackson's family has vehemently denied that he was a pedophile, and the star himself denied every allegation when he was alive.

The "Thriller" singer's death more than 10 years ago while preparing for a blockbuster series of comeback concerts was caused by a combination of prescription drugs.

His doctor, Conrad Murray, was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson a lethal dose of anesthesia.

Kim and Kanye's Jackson flashy coat present to North is particularly odd as recently reported that the rapper who has found religion recently convinced his wife to stop putting makeup on the little girl.

"She loves makeup but her dad won't let her wear it," Kim said about North during her KKW x WINNIE makeup collaboration dinner in New York City on September 12.

"I think he had it, he changed all the rules. I'd let her wear, you know, she has a little red for Christmas, I'd let her wear a red lip, or I'd let her do one pop of something. I'd let her if she's wearing a black dress, a black lip. My sister Kylie would give her all of these lip kits, so I kind of got in trouble for that. So, it's now no more makeup," Kim said.

Jackson's pricey jacket apparently wasn't the only luxury gift for celebrity child North.

The girl was seen walking around with a $10,000 Birkin purse on Monday!
