Rumor: People to Pay $10 to $15 Million for Pitt and Jolie's Twin Photos

Posted on July 31, 2008

The JustJared.com blog is reporting that People magazine has won the bid to run the first baby pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's twins - Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline.
JustJared.com has just learned that People magazine has drummed up the winning bid for the first pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's twins - Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline. It is rumored that the winning bid is between $10 million and $15 million. The pictures will come up in a future People magazine issue (but not this week!). The money paid to Brad and Angelina has already been earmarked for charity.
If true that would be more than the $4 to $6 million People paid earlier this year for rights to Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's baby photos. A magazine can see a jump in newsstand sales when a new celebrity baby is on the cover. People also bought rights to the first cover with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's baby Shiloh in 2006.
