The Telegraph reports Kim spent early years alone at his family’s luxury beach home in Wonsan and in their luxury compounds in Pyongyang.
He was reportedly became difficult at school and kicked other pupils in the shins – earning him the nickname ‘the little dictator’, journalist Anna Fifield revealed.
In her biography of Kim, The Great Successor: The Secret Rise and Rule of Kim Jong Un, she said he wore the Colt .45 pistol around his hip as a pre-teen.
She added: “The boy grew up thinking he was special.”
The book claims in one incident, he shunned a Japanese chef just because he was not from North Korea.
Kenji Fujimoto met Kim at the age of six, but Kim refused to shake his hand, glaring at him with “sharp eyes”, that the chef said appeared to suggest, “You abhorrent Japanese”.
In this same book, Ms Fifield revealed that Kim’s half-brother Kim Jong-Nam had worked as an informant for the CIA before he was assassinated.
