North also owns the white and black fedora Michael wore in his 1988 “Smooth Criminal” music video, as seen in another. Both pieces were purchased through Julien’s Auction House. The superstar’s jacket sold for $65,625, while the winning bid for his hat was $56,250.
But North isn’t the only celebrity kid to pay tribute to Michael on social media. Last year, Naya Rivera‘s son Josey was captured belting out “Man in the Mirror” and strumming on a guitar, as seen on his dad Ryan Dorsey‘s Instagram Story.
The August 2021 clip quickly had fans comparing the little one’s apparent love for music to his late mother’s. Naya—who died in July 2020 from an accidental drowning during a boating trip with her son—appeared in Glee‘s tribute episode to Michael in 2012, memorably performing “Smooth Criminal.”
Now, who can step it up with a moonwalk?
