Kim & Kanye

REJECT Brangelina-Sized

Payday for Baby Pics

EXCLUSIVE

0106_kim_kardashian_composite2PREPARE TO BE SHOCKED ... unlike other celebs, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West turned down a chance to rake in some serious coin off their unborn child ... rejecting a $3 million tabloid offer for the baby's first pics.

Sources close to K&K tell TMZ ... the couple has been flooded with lucrative deals from magazines clamoring to score baby Kimye's coveted first photos, with offers ranging as high as several million. We're told the $3 million offer was from an overseas tabloid.

So far, no cigar. Our sources say the couple has no plans to sell the pics to ANYONE ... right now.

We're told they're aware public demand will only increase over time -- and still might consider offers in the future.

It's a pretty surprising move nonetheless, considering it's become S.O.P. in Hollywood to cash in post-baby-birth ...

-- Brad & Angelina: $4.1 million for Shiloh in 2006. $14 million for their twins in 2008.
-- J.Lo & Marc Anthony: $6 million for their twins.
-- Matthew McConaughey: $3 million for his son.
-- Christina Aguilera: $1.5 million for her baby.
-- Jessica Alba: $1.5 million ... the list goes on.

As TMZ first reported ... Kim and Kanye also nixed the idea of their baby guest starring on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" -- except while he/she is in Kim's belly.

I'd rather the tabloids pay for a DNA test because I don't for a minute believe that Kayne is straight.

why not just cut to the chase? we all know kanye would rather be known as "jayzlite" because he is as much j's lap dog as he is misswideload's lap dog. imagine having to throw yourself on kanye west to get a meal ticket thru life. ive heard of reaching for a brass ring but never heard of reaching for a mud ring.

I seriously doubt this is a true story. That bitch would SELL THAT CHILD for 3 million bucks. And they ain't no Brangelina either. Funny how the tabloid that offered the big bucks is anonymous and from overseas.... TMZ, y'all need to quit drinking the KK Kool Aid, or at least don't assume your readers are this stupid to believe they got those kinds of offers on a pic of their brat. They sre still a joke!

They have about nine months to get a better offer.......who are they kidding, no talents have to make it while stupid people are willing to pay because once everyone realized how truly useless these two are the gravy train stops....

Can't commit to $$$ because it will go to Kris Humphries. He is technically the dad on paper!!!!

Tell Kris this concocted fairytale of hers will NOT garner anywhere near 3 mil for the pictures no one cares about. That baby will be pimped out more than any of the other Slutrashians.

It appears, Harvey, that you have worked out some kind of lucrative deal with pimp mama Kris to keep "reporting" on her eldest slore. You're becoming another mto.

First off: Bull****, they had no $3 million offer. Second: They would never reject a figure like that because they're somehow better, the only reason they'd ever reject a figure like that is because THEY WANT MORE. But she ain't getting $3 million and never will.

We need to start a campaign now to boycott every company, product, magazine cover, etc. that PAYS this whore for her second attempt to cash out. We can start with that creepy baby company that sent her the $1,000 gift certificate.

no surprise to me at all.. they will sell them for sure.. but are holding out for more money, and i wouldn't be surprised if they already have a contract for pics likely with US.. mom likely inked a deal with the magz long ago when Kourtney had her kids, and the deal likely included all kardashian births lol

I believe Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie donated their money to an international charity. It makes a lot of difference whether parents try to profit from a child's birth or use the money for a greater good.
