Nicole Kidman and her husband, country singer Keith Urban are turning down millions for photos of their newborn baby, Sunday Rose. I saw this story two days ago on another blog but I yawned and kept it moving. Until I found out that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were offered $16 million for photos of their newborn twins.
It’s kind of hard for any celebrity to top $16 million for exclusive rights to photos of their kid. I’m sure egos are being bruised all over Hollywood. As you know, most celebrities are a narcissistic bunch. If they can’t command top dollar for their baby then no one sees the pics.
Anyway, Nicole’s publicist claims the couple simply want to preserve their child’s privacy. I doubt that seriously. According to the NY Post’s Page Six, Nicole’s publicist says, “A number of publications called to offer money, but [Nicole] never considered it.” Well, a number of publications also called Usher and Tameka with offers for pics of their baby. But since the offers never got any higher than $50,000 – they didn’t consider it either.
