North has achieved social media stardom in recent months, making frequent appearances on a TikTok account she shares with her mother.

Her TikTok fame comes after Kanye publicly voiced his strenuous objections to his eldest child being allowed onto the platform. 

Kim and Kanye, who married in 2014 and finalized their divorce last year, share four children – North, nine, Saint, seven, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.

Last year Kanye saw his career implode and his billion-dollar fortune plummet after a string of anti-Semitic outbursts in interviews and on social media.

North and Saint’s film roles come  on the heels of a social media furor over ‘nepo babies’ in who are said to have gotten showbiz careers via family connections.

The focus landed on a glut of rising starlets with famous parents, from Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp to Andie MacDowell’s daughter Margaret Qualley.

Maude Apatow, whose father is Judd Apatow, and Maya Hawke, whose parents are Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, have shot to fame in recent years as well. 

Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni Klum, Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber and Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough are also coming up, among other boldface names.

The online chatter around ‘nepo babies’ reached a fever pitch in December after New York magazine ran a viral cover story about the phenomenon.

Dakota Johnson, whose parents are Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith and whose grandmother is Hitchcock blonde Tippi Hedren, was one of the faces on the cover.

Jamie Lee Curtis, the daughter of Psycho actress Janet Leigh and Some Like It Hot dreamboat Tony Curtis, then waded into the debate.

Calling herself the ‘OG Nepo Baby,’ she complained: ‘The current conversation about nepo babies is just designed to try to diminish and denigrate and hurt.’
