this girl lay lay – 14-year-old rapper who just landed her own Nickelodeon series – is calling Kim kardashian for allegedly demanding that she remove a TikTok … but sources close to Kim and Kanye question the motivations behind the video.
Yes, Kim and Kanye smoke with a teenager. It happened to that. 🤷🏽♂️
Here’s the backstory … TGLL shared a TikTok video that shows a 6 year old girl, North West, hanging out while the young rapper stops one of her tracks.
Shortly thereafter, Lay Lay claimed Kim texted her asking her to remove the clip, and she wasn’t sure why. A rep for the rapper tells TMZ… Lay Lay feels hurt and wants Kim to let her repost the video because she thinks there is no good reason to remove it.
However, a source close to Kim and Kanye said they never allowed their 6-year-old to appear in the clip, and believes Lay Lay’s team used the old footage of North for publicity purposes. .
We are told that Lay Lay’s father asked Kim and Kanye months ago for permission to use North’s footage, but had no response in July … so they decided to post it, thinking that it wouldn’t be a big deal because they had approved another video in the past.
For context, the video was shot in March 2020 … as Kim was taking a little heat not to credit another young artist, ZaZa, when North played one of his songs at Paris Fashion Week. We are told that Lay Lay now thinks Kim only organized that first meeting and then TikTok to limit the damage of what happened with ZaZa.
Our source Kim and Kanye says that couldn’t be further from the truth, and says it was just meant to be a game date… and now they feel taken advantage of.
The source continues, “Lay’s father refuses to release the clip without images of North because he’s clearly trying to use his image as a source of publicity, which is why North’s parents have a problem to begin with. C ‘is a question of principle at this point and the answer is always no. He cannot commercially use filmed footage of North taken inside his home during what should have been a play date. innocent child.
As for Lay Lay’s claim, Kim texted him directly to remove the video? We are told it was Tracy Romulus, Kim’s friend and KKW Brands CMO.
Lay’s rep tells us that she thinks it was only done because Kim isn’t enjoying TikTok this time around. We’re told the 14-year-old is struggling to cope.
