Blue Ivy steals the show at Los Angeles charity art auction

Blue offered a cool $19,000 for a portrait of Sidney Poitier at the Saturday night event, only to be outbid by Tyler Perry for the piece.

At the 2nd annual Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday the entire Knowles-Carter clan was on hand to celebrate Beyoncé Knowles-Carter's dedication to humanitarian work. The duo rocked matching gowns that slayed the "From WACO to Wakanda" theme.

Everyone's favourite six-year-old has stolen the show when she chose to bid $19k (£14k) on some art, as her parents tried to pry away the bidding paddle from her grip.

Video footage captured proud dad, Jay-Z hilariously trying to stop Blue Ivy from raising her paddle when the bid on an item began at $17,000.

The Brooklyn rapper and Blue's moment instantly went viral sparking Twitter users jealousy all at once. "Why you think I'm up here talking about it?"

A giggling Blue Ivy raised her bidding paddle again and seemingly confirmed a desire to drop almost $20,000 on Anderson's "Young Sindey".

It's unclear whether Blue Ivy actually won the bid on the piece - goodness knows Jay and Bay can afford it if she did - but that's TRULY high rolling by the adorable six-year-old!

"Let me tell you what's happening: her mother and father have been talking about how you gather art, and that is a big deal for African Americans", Star Jones, the auctioneer of the night, said on stage.
