Why Kanye West Refuses to Sell Pictures Of Baby North West
The media world is clamoring for a picture of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s brand new baby girl, but there is no word yet on when photos of the famous infant will finally hit the front page. Of course, there are plenty of rumors that Kim (and/or momager Kris Jenner) are waiting to sell pictures of North to the highest bidder, but Kanye isn’t having it.
New dad Kanye is notoriously press averse, and recently told the New York Times that North, “isn’t America’s baby.” But apparently it’s more than that. Not only does Kanye want to protect his baby from the paparazzi, he’s also totally against the idea of profiting off of her.
“I know Kanye’s not about to make money off that girl,” a source told Hollywoodlife.com. “Trust, that’s not going to happen. Kanye isn’t no pimp and he damn sure isn’t about to pimp out his own daughter. That’s not in his character. Whenever he does decide to bring his girl out in public, it won’t be for money. It’s going to be on his terms and in an appropriate place.”
Uh oh. Are Kanye and Kris going to go head-to-head on this issue? As a manager, Kris is always on the lookout for the most profitable deal for her family, and we can’t imagine she’ll be cool with just giving these clamored-after photos away.
Kim and Kanye could go Brangelina style! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie reportedly sold baby photos of their twins Knox and Vivienne for $14 million in 2008, but then they donated the money to charity. Considering that Kimye asked for donations to charity in lieu of baby shower gifts, this seems like a solution they’d be into.
