Blue Ivy Carter – the ten-year-old daughter of Beyonce, 41, and Jay-Z, 52 – stunned the Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night. 

The young girl bid over $80K for a pair of Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings, shocking her grandmother Tina Knowles-Lawson, 68, and Keke Palmer, 29. 

Both women were up on stage serving as the auctioneers when Blue Ivy jumped up from her chair and entered the bidding war by waving her paddle.

Monique Rodriguez, the founder of Mielle Organics, went head-to-head with the formidable youngster and made the winning bid of $105K. 

This isn’t the first time that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s eldest child has caused a stir at the annual event’s luxury auction. In 2019, when she was only six years old, Blue Ivy bid $19K on another item up for auction at that year’s Wearable Art Gala. 

The art connoisseur, who was six years old at the time, bid on an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier and she entered into a bidding war with a mysterious rival. 

That mystery bidder turned out to be none other than Tyler Perry, 53, who didn’t even know that he was bidding against a child. ‘Somebody else was bidding against me,’ Perry later told NBC’s Today show after winning the bidding war with Blue Ivy. ‘I didn’t know who it was.’

‘I look over and it’s her,’ said the influential filmmaker. ‘She’s taking the paddle out of Jay’s hand and Beyonce’s hand and she’s bidding.’ 

Perry’s resolve didn’t waver once he realized that his competition was practically a kindergartener. ‘This kid’s not outbidding me today,’ he said of his determination. ‘You gonna learn today, little girl, I’m getting this painting.’

The celebrity auctioneer for the gala that year was Star Jones, 60, and she shined a light on how Blue Ivy’s passion for art has developed. 

‘Her mother and father have been talking about how you gather art and that is a big deal for African Americans,’ said Jones from the stage. The former host of The View went on to add that this insight came straight from Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles-Lawson. 

A force to be reckoned with: In 2019, when she was only six years old, Blue Ivy bid $19K on on an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier at that year's Wearable Art Gala. After a heated bidding war, she lost out to Tyler Perry, 53

Tina is co-founder of the WACO Theatre Center, which puts on the Wearable Art Gala every year in order to benefit WACO’s artistic and youth mentorship programs. 

The annual charity event is a family affair, with Beyonce serving as an honorary co-chair along with her sister Solange Knowles, 36.

The Carters never fail to make an impact every year, contributing to the cause with both their presence and their pocketbooks. 

Beyonce was decked out in Gucci for this year’s event where she revealed that her Renaissance World Tour will kick off next summer. The superstar donated the first round of tour ticket to the gala and they reportedly sold for $150K. 

Blue Ivy was not responsible for bidding up the astronomical price of the tickets.
