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.

If this is even true then it's all Kanye! Kim does everything in the public eye and as soon as Kim and Kanye break up she will start making money off this baby. Then we will see a huge legal battle between. Kim and Kanye.

That's because she's not really pregnant.

Either they want more or she's not really pregnant. I don't think she's pregnant, honestly.

I am not a fan of Kanye but what is wrong with this world? Why can't we be happy for them? A baby is a blessing & I think they will be great parents.

In my opinion. It's b.s. they r just holding out cuz she is so conceded and greedy that she prob thinks she can get more then 3 million. I bet when the baby is born we will def see pics from the highest bidder.

Headline is so misleading. They were not offered "Brangelina" money at $6 mil or even JLo cash. They were "offered" half that amount, huge difference. TMZ is obviously on the Kartrashian payroll. Her trashy families time in the sun is almost over.
