Kim Kardashian & Kanye are turning down offers to sell their baby’s first photos

I’m already getting an ulcer from all of the preemptive shade you guys are going to throw at Kim Kardashian for this outfit. So let me just say… I would wear this. Judge away!! Yes, palazzo pants/wide-leg trousers are not for everyone, but doesn’t she look comfortable? I’d rather see her in this kind of outfit as opposed to some bizarre fishnet gown or leather jodhpurs or something. Anyway, these are new pics of Kim arriving in Miami. I’m not sure why she’s there or anything.

Some of you have tried to make some kind of conspiracy about Kim’s baby bump or lack thereof. Let’s be clear: I’m always down for a celebrity conspiracy theory, but let’s give it some time. Kim is not going Full Beyonce and claiming that a pasta gut is a third-trimester baby bump. Kim is allegedly three months pregnant, her boobs look bigger to me, and she seems to have gained some weight overall. Let’s give it a few months, and if she’s still the same size, then I’ll join you in some conspiratorial haven where no celebrity woman (besides Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Garner, apparently) actually gets pregnant.

Meanwhile, preparations have already begun for the pimping of the newest Kardashian. But TMZ reports that Kim and Kanye are hesitant about selling their baby photos!

PREPARE 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.

Well, if they don’t sell the baby photos, that’s fine. It’s not like it would be “proof” that they aren’t famewhores or anything. But I think they’ll totally sell the baby photos, they’re just waiting until Kim is further along, and magazines can better gauge the interest in seeing the first photos of their baby. And I’ll admit it – I wouldn’t mind seeing Kim and Kanye’s baby on the cover of People Magazine or Us Weekly. But that stuff has never bothered me in general.

    They are not selling the photos – yet. They will wait for the feeding frenzy to work itself into a fevered pitch – for a lot more than $3 mil – and then they will sign a deal. My prediction.

  2. Dawn says:

    I will believe that someone offered these two that kind of money when it actually happens. I think this is a plant by pimp-mamma hoping to scare up some interest. So I say this is b.s.

  3. dcypher1 says:

    they are just waiting for the highest bidder. Of course they are gonna sell those pics its the kardashians were talking about.

  4. Ms Kay says:

    Eh. They wanted that baby first appearance on Vogue cover but Anna Wintour side eye just made them run up the hills!

    So they’re still waiting for the in-their-dreams highest of the highest bidder.

    As for her baby bump, honestly my sister is the same body shape as Kim and her pregnancy didn’t really show until she was 5-6months…

  5. Jennika says:

    They’re holding out for more money. That baby is business decision because the public is sick of her and she was disappearing. I hope when the baby is born, all the offers are really low

  6. BB says:

    I agree, they will sell the pics. Since US magazine missed out on the pregnancy annoucement, they will definitely get the baby shower pics and maybe the first photos. Their pregnancy annoucement made international news. It is just a matter of time.

  7. FeverDream says:

    She’s almost starting to look like old Kim, you know before she started messing with herself.

    For some odd reason it seems like Kanye is making her more settled and real again.

  8. T.C. says:

    “We’re told they’re aware public demand will only increase over time — and still might consider offers in the future.”

    Please, Kim and her mother are just holding out for a higher prize from a U.S. magazine that quote says it right there. Not buying this story TMZ is trying to spread for them.,

  9. anotherrandom says:

    I didn’t know there was a conspiracy with her already. She totally looks pregnant to me. Huge boobs, fuller middle, plus she’s breaking out and she had such beautiful skin before. That’s the hormones raging in her system. I think she’ll carry bigger than her sister but maybe she’ll maintain a strict diet in order to keep herself together.

  10. Really nice post, I read your blog every day. Keep it up :)

  11. SmokeyBlues says:

    I would wear that to travel, fer sher. I also agree with you that they are jut holding out – plenty of time left to negotiate.
    I just want to say that I read this already over at TMZ, but I have decided not to go to that site again. The amount of straight up racism in the comments is staggering, and TMZ does nothing to censor it. Good job CB for having rules and trying to cut that kind of commentary out, and to CB readers for calling out racism. It is truly sad and upsetting over at TMZ. That’s not the way we should be talking, people!

  12. Cinnamon says:

    I just hope Kim’s genes are stronger than Kanyes. he’s not even remotely attractive or seemingly intelligent given this life decision. Kim should have reeled in the drama and could have kept a good guy like Reggie

  13. Andrea says:

    I can totally see a she’s pregnant…pregnancy boobs…owwieeeee

  14. megs283 says:

    I LOVE that outfit. It’s like fancy pajamas. (And I mean that in a good way. Right now I’m working from home and wearing my non-fancy pajamas…so you see that I prioritize comfort.)

  15. mln76 says:

    I bet she carries small just like Beyonce did thick women tend to carry small. Get your pillow conspiracies ready.

  16. French reader says:

    There’s no way that baby will not be on the show, momager Kris won’t stand for that. There will be at least half a dozen cameras in the delivery room.

  17. dorothy says:

    This baby is another cog in the Kardashian money making machine. They are turning down THIS offer. Doesn’t mean they won’t use their own spawn to cash in. Pathetic, desperate people. Just shows why some people shouldn’t reproduce.

  18. Jess says:

    She is obviously at an airport, and I would wear comfy trousers on a plane too.

    Does it matter if they sell the baby photos or not? It is not like the baby will suffer negatively from that by itself.

  19. Ailine says:

    Maybe they don’t want to sell because they know people will trash them for it. Kanye has never been too out there with the media anyway.

  20. Vicky says:

    Sorry. Not buying this. No one offered them $3 million. In this day and age, the most they could get is about 400K.

    Does anyone really believe Kim’s pimp, err mom, would allow her to forgo selling the baby pics?

    Plus E! network released a statement saying their baby will be on the show.

  21. tabasco says:

    Bullsh*t. *Kanye* is turning down offers to sell the baby. (for now)

  22. Cathy says:

    I hate to admit this, but I like the outfit she’s wearing. It’s the best outfit I’ve seen her wear in a long time. As for the baby pics, they’ll sell them, they’re just waiting for more money

  23. tabasco says:

    pregnant or not, she looks 1,000 times better like this, laid back, not stuffed into something 3 sizes too small, easy on the hair and makeup, much better.

  24. OhDear says:

    I guess they’re biding their time, but can’t blame them if the do decide to sell the baby pics. It’s better than dealing with a mad pap frenzy in getting the first shots.

  25. grabbyhands says:

    Nice try. There’s no way that they’re not going to eventually sell the pictures-they’re just waiting for the best deal. The two of them are too committed as famewhores NOT to do it. And as for it not being on the show, please. I can’t believe they think people will believe this stuff.

  26. Andrew says:

    I’m going to go out on a huge limb here and say that they won’t sell the photos. I think Kanye really does have some sense (I can’t believe I’m saying that)

  27. The Original Mia says:

    They are holding out for more. No way do I believe anyone is offering them Brangelina money for their kid’s first picture. They are testing the market to see if they can get that much.

    Kaiser, I hope you guys get the pictures of her in this awful blue cut-out dress. Girl can’t dress. At all.

  28. littlestar says:

    Does anyone else notice that her skin looks really bad lately? Look at all the pimples on her face! I’m really surprised she hasn’t done a better job of covering them up, considering how she likes to keep up appearances. Maybe the bad skin is a pregnancy thing? When my best friend was pregnant a couple of years ago, her skin was awful – big red pimples, the really deep painful kind. I felt so bad for her and nothing she did helped :( .

    • 'Sup? says:

      She has psoriasis, which really effs up the skin. I thought pregnancy would make her skin better, maybe in the upcoming months. My skin was perfect, dewy and soft during my pregnancies. It was the only time I didn’t have to worry about looking like a lizard. Then, 4 to 5 months after childbirth the red patches and flakes came back and had to be on methotrextate.
      If Kim was on biologic drugs she had to stop them, because theu usually reduce your body’s folic acid and could even cause miscarriage.

  29. mln76 says:

    I don’t think they will get the money they want. She is due right around the time the future Monarch of England is coming and those photos will be released gratis.

  30. Elceibeno08 says:

    I’m a little offended that Keiser would assume that us bloggers would be predisposed to judge Kim Kardashian. I’d much rather see Kim wear an outfit that’s comfortable than a size four leather peplum skirt. Call me prejudiced but it seems extremely suspicious and unnatural that Kim is turning down three freaking millions dollars for her baby’s pictures. Kim’s mom must be foaming at the mouth.

  31. Rachel says:

    I agree Kaiser. When I saw the full pic, I thought this was the best she’s looked in a very long time. Except for the fact that her pants are eating her feet. And seriously, does she not know about the dangers of wearing pants like that on a moving walkway??? She could get her cuff caught in it and lose a leg!

    • Sassy says:

      As a small person with a big bust and small hips, may I comment, please. In order to get pants that fit your butt or thick waist, you fit the largest area, which makes the pants too long, which always involves tailoring fees. One way to deal is to wear high heels. As far as jackets and blouses/shirts, you fit the bust, then have the arms and length tailored. All of the alternations take fitting time, and sewing time, so it is difficult to just pop something on that fits. I always notice that Kim’s sleeves are way too long, indicating to me that she didn’t have time for alterations.

  32. Viv says:

    Dear Kim,
    since you make tons of money for nothing proper besides being photographed, it would be nice if you could slap some make up on those pimples.
    You done went and had that hair done, might as well have spared a minute for a touch of concealer.

  33. Kathryn says:

    I wonder is she’ll have a pillow pregnancy — a la Beyonce?

    If she really is pregnant, I’m assuming she is, I hope that it sets her priorities straight. If I remember correctly, she’s one of the most visible “celebrities” but one of the least charitable. Maybe she’ll rake in tons of dough and donate it — that could be a positive in all this, right? :)

  34. truthful says:

    the outfit would look better on someone taller or if she had it tailored to fit.

    I’m not beleiving she is pregnant yet, it could be a ploy from her mammy to get Ye to let his guard down and then she gets pregnant or others have said “she’ll feign a miscarriage” later.

    I put nothing past this attention whoring family.

    you’re getting soft CB, it saddens me.

    this cow is still a married chick “supposedly” pregnant by a closeted bi-sexual rapper.

    a non talented desperate ass bird,
    “wooo look at me”


  35. Nicolette says:

    Oh please, she would do anything for money. She’s probably just trying to pique interest in the photos and hoping to start a bidding war among the tabloids.

  36. HK9 says:

    That decision will last about 72 days.

  37. Katarina says:

    Kim was just in my city, Calgary, Alberta, Canada at at the nightclub Cowboys. She posed with some fans and hugged them even though there was a no touching rule, and was really sweet and tweated a fan she met saying it was nice to meet you. It sounds like she’s a sweet girl

  38. LeeLoo says:

    Am I the only one who thinks this baby is going to ruin Kim’s figure?

    I have a friend who has a similar body type to Kim K, and she’s also a mother to a 3 y/o and it’s taken 2.5 years of HARD work to get herself back to her pre-baby weight. While we all know Kim has limitless access to plastic surgeons, I think Kanye’s trauma of his mother’s death makes him very anti-plastic surgery and Kim has had to tone it all down or stop altogether. I just don’t think she has the willpower to actually work hard at keeping her figure. However, Pimp Mama will probably lock her in a room with the baby for the first month in order for Kim to keep some semblance of her figure.

    • littlestar says:

      I agree with you. I have a cousin who has the same build as Kim (same hair and skin colour too actually) and after having two kids, she says her body has gone to complete hell and it is taking a lot of work to try and get it back to what it used to be. Even after her first child she said her body changed drastically.

      So I wouldn’t be surprised if Kim keeps wearing outfits like this for the next couple of years (although I actually like this outfit – she used to be quite stylish BEFORE Kanye).

    • Gemini08 says:

      I don’t. Curvy girls tend to take to pregnancy better than boy shaped girls do. Wider hips help. Now if she eats up a storm and gains more weight than what is recommended then yes- it will ruin her figure. But the same goes for any woman who uses pregnancy as an excuse to gorge themselves.

  39. G says:

    Oh she’s going for it isn’t she? LOL!! Come on with the “haggard look” Kim we get it your “pregnant” (eye roll).

  40. thatgirl says:

    If the baby isn’t on the show that is just going to reveal and staged and not “reality” that the show is. Why wouldn’t your child be with you at family gatherings etc…stupid.

  41. Nudgie says:

    Heck with the pictures – I want to wait for the fight between Kris Humphries and the Kartrashians. According to CA law, the current husband of the mother is ‘assumed to be the father of the baby’ unless the ‘other man’ proves through DNA or whatever that he is the father.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go on the Maury Show!!!

  42. KellyinSeattle says:

    I’m surprised they didn’t sell out the moment of conception, on film.

  43. Kim says:

    There is no way they were offered $3million Jay and Beyonce werent offered that much.

  44. anon says:

    PR stunt setting the starting bid at 3 million.. thats what there asking for not what was offered.. There selling pics absolutley selling pics.. Look at beach pics today for photo shoot.. definatley a lot of weight on already.. That butt is going to be rediculous in size.. Belly may not be as she may carry in back & butt.. lol.. Oh the joy for

  45. Nev says:

    EVERY celebrity waits for the highest bidder…let’s not be naive about this and try to pin it only on Kim.

  46. nhi says:

    I noticed that little miss superstar isn’t wearing that much makeup in private and not so much nail polish like she used to… hmmm

  47. Lynne says:

    I don’t think they were offered 3 million, I think that they are setting the bar at 3M. IMO the kardashian’s are friends with Harvey and use TMZ to spread their rumors.

  50. Amy625 says:

    I thought tv deal first too. Kourtney gave birth twice on tv so I don’t see why Kim wouldn’t. Although Kim’s probably will be re-enacted so that she looks good. Plus nobody gives photo rights this soon. That doesn’t happen until just before/after birth. I don’t know if overexposure will hurt the numbers if they wait. Before her wedding to Kris, they were all over the place and still had huge ratings.

  51. Boo says:

    What on earth is she wearing?

  52. Gemini08 says:

    Her face is fuller and her boobs are bigger- she looks like a woman in her early trimester.

  53. Dea says:

    Kaiser: i dont believe dor a bit she is pregnant. See at Daily Mail today where kim has a blue dress. In one of the photos (where is very close to her belly) you can see the spandex under. Tell me a woman who is pregnant that will wear a spendex? Also, there is no glow for her at all. She is just fatter now and is rounded more. I got in almost the same shape when I gained weight as I am a big on the chest area and i could have passed for a pregnant woman easily.
