Kanye West + Kim Kardashian Turn Down Multi-Million Dollar Offers in Order to Debut Baby Photo on Kris Jenner’s Show
Considering Kim Kardashian capitalizes on every photo op she can, the world was curious as to why no one has seen nor sold photos of her daughter with Kanye West. And now we have the answer: North West has been chosen to save Kris Jenner's talk show.
Radar Online reports that West and Kardashian received an offer of $4 million from an Australian publishing outlet for the rights to the first photos of North (affectionately dubbed "Nori"), but they turned it down -- and that other offers were north (no pun intended) of $10 million.
"They were planning on giving it all away to [Kanye's] charity anyway," a source explained of the decision. "It's not like [North] needs to worry about [her] trust fund. Kanye's already set aside a serious chunk of change."
Still, the couple may change their minds. The insider revealed, "Kim pointed out how much that could help a charity and that they could look back on it and think of all the kids who got to better their situation because of one photo shoot." Pretty noble, right?
So what's the hold up? For one, Kardashian is worried about her daughter's safety. "Right now, she is worried about the safety of Nori because paps are throwing stuff over the walls, yelling awful things at her," a source said, ignoring the fact that Kardashian reportedly often calls paparazzi herself. "She feels threatened and scared right now that if they don't just let everyone see the kid, you all are gonna go cray cray on her when she does finally emerge."
Jenner, often accused of trying to control her clan, "would only have looked things over to make sure that the brand and her daughter's best interests were represented," the source said of the baby pics. The source added that Jenner "has learned to stop taking s--- so seriously with them -- that Kim is in love -- and she's kinda lost the control, and has to be OK with that, or else lose Kim as her daughter." Yikes!
Someone else is taking control of the pics: West is said to be the final decider of how to distribute the images, and he's looking at W and Vogue as options because he wants an artistic spread.
As for the photo that may appear on 'Kris'? It features Nori on a bedspread in a "very expensive" onesie. Cute!
