Blue Ivy, 6, Bids $19K on Painting at Auction

posted by Sierra Marquina -

Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s six-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter is one sophisticated kid. The tot sat alongside her parents at an art auction in Los Angeles on Saturday, March 17, and bid $19,000 on a painting.

The auction was held at the 2018 Wearable Art Gala and was organized by Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles and her husband, Richard Lawson, and raised money for the WACO Theater Center and also honored Jay-Z’s mother, Gloria Carter, for her humanitarian work with the Shawn Carter Foundation.

In a video posted to a fan account's social media, Blue Ivy can be seen sitting between her two parents and at first raising her paddle to bid $17K on the acrylic painting. After another bidder went for $18K, Blue raised her paddle. Jay-Z could be seen hilariously trying to press her hand down and the crowd laughed.

Auction host Star Jones then joked that Blue was working on her art collection. Beyoncé’s mini-me ended up losing out on the piece to Tyler Perry who bid $20K.

What a legend.
