Word on the blogging streets is that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have passed up several lucrative offers to sell photos of their daughter North (“Nori”) West. TMZ reports that one offer was as high at $3 million!
Wowee!! As those of us who follow the celeb photo covers and know of the lucrative offers some have gotten from magazines for offering up the very first glimpses of their baby, the market has been on the downturn. Celebs haven’t been able to capture the multimillion dollar offers of its hey day in 2008 when we reported how celebs got millions. These days, they’re lucky if they can get 6 figures for a first photo.
A source to the gossip site said they had considered gifting a million dollar honorarium to charity like how Brad and Angelina did with the $4.1 Million they got for the first pics of Baby Shiloh, but have gone against that and may present the baby in a fashion mag spread similar to the way Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes did in Vanity Fair in 2006. Or, they’ll follow in Bey and Jay’s footsteps and release it in their own good time in their medium of choosing for no cost.
Time will tell.
