Kanye West Explains North's Tantrum at Adidas Show

Proud papa says people were being mean to her daddy.

Last week, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter, North West, managed to steal the spotlight away from her famous parents — not easy! — when she made headlines for breaking into an all-out tantrum at her dad's first-ever fashion show. Like a true doting father, West stuck up for his kid when cameras caught her misbehaving. 


"Maybe she was just scared for her daddy," West jokingly told i-D after the show. "She just wanted people to stop being mean to her daddy. Because she knows that her daddy loves the world and just wants to make it a more beautiful place."
North, 19 months, was dressed the part at the Adidas-Yeezy collaboration event and even sat front row with Beyoncé and Jay Z on her right and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour on her left. 
She reportedly threw another tantrum a couple of days later when she sat front row at the Alexander Wang show, featuring her model aunt, Kendall Jenner. That time, North's outrage was the result of a photographer dangling a toy monkey out of her grasp, a source says.
