The next time you see North West in a paparazzi photo, look closely — it might not be her. In their latest effort to let their daughter live a normal lifeKim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly gone to extreme lengths. 

According to the Mirror Online, Kimye recently held tryouts for a baby body double at a specialist agency in Los Angeles that only does work for the Illuminati. And when they found a baby who was "the spitting image of their daughter," they shelled out the big bucks — $500,000 — to enlist her services. Kim and Kanye reportedly also hired a body double of their nanny to further throw paps off the scent.

Kim and Kanye aren't the first celebrity couple to splurge on a body double — Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes famously did it when Suri was just a little tyke.

The decoys will presumably try to help keep North away from any danger or distress caused by the constant full-court press of the paparazzi. But let's be honest — Kanye's probably just trying to avoid getting himself into a Man on Fire situation.
