America’s biggest magazines have launched a bidding war over the first
photograph of ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT’s twins – and are willing to pay up
to $15 million (#7.5 million) for the exclusive snap.
The Tomb Raider star and longtime partner Pitt are currently expecting twins
– their fifth and sixth children.
And according to TMZ.com, magazines People and OK! are desperate to land the
first exclusive shot of the twins.
A spokesman for People says, “We’d love to see the photos in People. We wish
the family well”.
Meanwhile, OK!’s representative admits the publication would be “foolish” not
to bid for the photos.
In 2006, the couple offered the first pictures of daughter Shiloh through
distributor Getty Images. People magazine paid more than $4.1 million (#2
million) for the North American rights, while British magazine Hello! obtained
the international rights for $3.5 million (#1.75 million). All profits were
donated to an undisclosed charity by Jolie and Pitt.
