In news we never thought we'd be writing about, North West ended up facing a backlash after copying a rap she performed at a Kanye West show.

Proving she's following in her famous father's footsteps, North surprised the crowds at his Yeezy Season 8 show during Paris Fashion Week when she appeared on stage and performed a rap.

But while plenty of praise rolled in for the six-year-old's impressive vocals, the parents of a child star called ZaZa, five, took to Instagram asking for credit.

After catching wind of North's performance, ZaZa's parents wrote: "We take PRIDE in creativity, and believe whether a child's involved or an adult... creativity deserves RESPECT/homage! What @kimkardashian (Kanye west) are doing with their daughter... with the inspiration of ZaZa & our family in mind is okay... we not mad BUT PLS SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!!"

"We admire Kanye West and adore his journey. However, we don't wanna feel like our daughter's journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED."

Squashing any beef, ZaZa's parents wrote back to Kim, saying: "All love, all good."

So that's that then.
