In honor of the “Any Time, Any Place” singer’s 55th birthday on Sunday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 40, revealed that she recently purchased a very special outfit Jackson wore in her 1993 “If” music video.
“Happy birthday queen!” Kardashian wrote on her Instagram Story, alongside a clip of Jackson wearing the ensemble. “For @janetjackson’s bday bc I’m such a fan I can’t believe I won this on juliens_auctions.”
Jackson responded to Kardashian in her own Instagram Story. “Thank u so much @kimkardashian! I hope ‘IF’ gives u as much pleasure as it did me,” she wrote along with three kissing face emojis.
Just two days earlier, the auction house announced that the outfit — a custom-made cropped suede top with artificial bone detailing and a pair of black lace-up front pants — had sold for $25,000.
The three-day auction, “Iconic Treasures From the Legendary Career and Life of Janet Jackson,” was held to commemorate Jackson’s birthday.
“Can’t believe this will be the last time I’ll see some of these items, but it’s for a good cause,” Jackson recently said in a video announcing the sale. A portion of the proceeds will go towards Compassion International, a non-profit organization that provides humanitarian aid to children in need.
This isn’t the first item of Jackson family memorabilia that Kardashian has purchased over the years.
In 2017, the SKIMS founder shared that she and Kanye West, whom she filed for divorce from in February, purchased daughter North a one-of-a-kind jacket once worn by Michael Jackson, as well as the white fedora he wore in his 1988 music video for “Smooth Criminal.”
