Angelina Jolie’s $10 Million Baby Photos?
Experts are claiming Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt could command up to $10 million for exclusive photos of their rumoured twins as the demand for celebrity baby photos grows.
Christina Aguilera was reportedly paid $1.5 million in February for shots of her newborn Max, and Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony nabbed $6 million from People for the first photos of new twins, Max and Emme.
One magazine editor confides to Page Six: “It’s at the point now where some stars might decide to have more kids just to collect the money from their photos.”
Barry Levine, an executive editor at the National Enquirer believes that pregnant stars are now “treating this like a game.”
“It’s become big business now,” he states. “It’s outrageous, they’ve gotten very sophisticated. The rights are bought up now even before the celeb enters the hospital. They hire extra security so it’s impossible to obtain a photo illegally.”
Another expert, Bonnie Fuller, said the amount of money celebrities are receiving just keeps growing.
She says: “If J.Lo really did get $6 million, then I think Angelina can now command $8 million. The magazines must look at it as a long-term investment, but I think it’ll cap out at a certain point.”
“I can’t think at this point who could command more money than Brangelina.”
