Kim was left in shock on Sunday when she discovered that North had accessed their shared TikTok account to give fans a tour of their plush Southern California home before showing Kim laying in bed.
Weiss said that she couldn’t help but see the irony in Kim telling of North as she is a rule breaker herself.
Kim responded: ‘I guess you’re right. Like, I do break the rules. I didn’t really think about it that way. I’m cautious. I care so much about what other people think that I try to do it in a respectful way, even if I break them.’
The reality star went on to explain that she knows that North has a penchant for breaking the rules not only due to her own trailblazing but also because of who her famous father is.

‘North West is Kanye West’s daughter. Forget that, she’s his twin’: The reality star went on to explain that she knows that North has a penchant for breaking the rules not only due to her own trailblazing but also because of who her famous father is, they are seen in October 2020
She explained: ‘I mean, North West is Kanye West’s daughter. Forget that, she’s his twin. So she will still definitely do all of the above.’
However just because both of her parents are groundbreakers doesn’t mean the eldest of four can do whatever she wants.
Kim – who shares four children with West – North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two – added: ‘But in my household, there are rules. She did feel really bad about that, and she apologized to me and she said “I saw on TikTok that I got in trouble and I’m really sorry.” And she got it.’

The pair launched a TikTok account just over two weeks ago and in that short time the reality star and the eldest of her four children, have garnered more than 3.1 million followers and counting.
North’s mischievous doings over the weekend featured a tour of the family’s posh Hidden Hills mansion that’s decked out in Christmas decorations.
Among the first places she roams into in the clip appears to be her own bedroom, which featured an all-pink theme in stark contrast to the minimalist theme of the rest of the home.
She shows off an ornament described as a ‘gingerbread thing’ before bounding out to see another room.
While narrating her walk, and chatting to other children at the house, including her brothers and sister, North announces ‘lets go downstairs we have rented this Sing thing,’ in a reference to decorations and arts and crafts all related to the new animated sequel film, Sing 2.

As North makes her way down the stairs she asks her playmates to ‘say yes’ if they want her to show off the Sing 2 decors that has been set up in the bottom floor and backyard of their mansion.
They even do a countdown, ‘3, 2, and 1,’ before unveiling the beginnings of the Sing decor.
The kids then all take turns showcasing the various cutouts and blowup characters from the musical comedy film that premiered in Los Angles the very same day, but is slated to drop in theaters across the country on December 22.
‘So we still got some Sing things,’ she says, before one young boy runs up to the camera and declares, ‘North is live. North is live. North your live. No, not fair, TikTok live,’ he yells in a frantic pace and tone, all while smiling. He adds, ‘Not allowed to be live,’ in the remaining few seconds of the clip.

Following the house tour, North followed up with a quick 11 second clip where she confessed to be going live on TikTok to her mother.
‘Mom, I’m live,’ she tells her mom with mischievous laughs while walking with the camera in a bedroom, seemingly her mother’s.

Sensing she may have crossed the line with her mother, North shoots back, ‘Okay bye,’ and signs off of the live feed, but not before Kim K is heard saying, ‘Is she really going live?’ to an unknown female voice that answers, ‘I don’t know.
When shared on the Kardashian News page, the clip was captioned: ‘North gets in trouble for going live.
‘North went live on Tiktok and Kim had no idea. And this was after she gave a full house tour. I hope Kim doesn’t mind this because I have never seen her more relatable than this! I feel like we are getting to see the Kardashians from a new lens and I think it will only impact them positively. As long as North doesn’t expose any family secrets.’
Kim touched on several other subjects during her interview with Weiss including railing against the ‘ridiculous’ cancel culture plaguing America and says she now regrets trying to force Kanye to take off his MAGA hat during a 2018 appearance on Saturday Night Live.
The pair discussed her recently passing the baby bar law exam, and how she has no regrets about working with former President Donald Trump to get people out of prison, despite how unpopular he may be among her fans.
In 2018, Kanye West appeared on Saturday Night Live (right) wearing a MAGA hat. Kim Kardashian (seen left last week) has revealed her regret at trying to get him to remove it, and says he and others should be free to believe in what they want
On Kanye’s hat, Kardashian said: ‘I was very nervous. I didn’t want him to wear the red hat. I’m not really a rule breaker, so my personality would be like, “OK, you guys don’t like the red hat? I’ll take it off.’”
‘I remember other people were around and it became a thing where he wasn’t going to go on because he wanted to be who he is. I’m very neutral, but that night I was very forceful with him, and argued with him like, “You have to take that hat off.”
‘And now looking back, I think, why should he take that off if that’s what he believes in? Why can’t he wear that on TV? Half of the country voted for him, so clearly other people like him,’ Kardashian said.

On cancel culture, she told Weiss: ‘If I worried about every last thing that someone said and I had to try to change it, then I would never be me. Anyone wouldn’t be them!
‘That’s why I think cancel culture is the most ridiculous thing, because I really do believe—and you and I have been at several dinners together where people are discussing their thoughts on it—in rehabilitation and freedom of speech.
‘I’ve never really been into cancel culture.’
Kardashian, 41, told Weiss it felt ‘so f*****g good’ to finally pass the law exam this week after failing three times.
‘When you’re not right out of college and your mind is not in a study mindset, it definitely takes a second to recalibrate. And then you’re like, “Oh my God, am I just so old that I’m not retaining this information now? What’s happening? Why aren’t I passing this?” But I did it. And it felt so f*****g good,’ she said.
She revealed that when she wanted to get Alice Johnson out of prison in 2018, her first call was to Ivanka Trump, who sympathized with her and told her to contact her husband Jared.
‘My first call was to Ivanka Trump. I said, “You’re a woman. I’m sure you can understand as a mother.” She was so empathetic and understood. And she said: “Why don’t you talk to my husband, Jared?” And I brought him the case, and it took him a few months.
‘He really researched it and got the president behind it, and he granted her clemency and eventually gave her a pardon.’
She has worked with Trump to get people out of prison, like Alice Johnson. She says in her interview that she ‘doesn’t care’ if people criticize her for it, and that she’d work with ‘anybody’
