Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Sell Wedding Pics For $2 Million To Two Mags
While newlyweds Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross can’t seem to find a publication willing to buy their nuptial photos, recently wed Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie landed two–not one–deal for their exclusive wedding photos. Brangelina got $2 million for the wedding pics they sold to People and Hello! magazines. This comes one week following their private August 23 ceremony in France.
“Publishing insiders tell us that People and Hello! joined forces to pony up the cash for the exclusive shots of Brangelina’s union,” reports The New York Daily News.
Although the couple is usually deeply private they have in the past opened up their personal lives for magazines. They sold the first photos of daughter Shiloh to People for $4 million in 2006. The money went to charity. And in 2007, the pair had another deal with People and Hello!, selling first photos of their son Pax for an undisclosed sum. In 2008, it is rumored they received a record $14 million from People for first photos of twins Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon.
No word if the couple, whose combines net worth is estimated to be around $385 million, will give the $2 million to charity this time.
We’re also expecting wedding day photos of Ross and Simpson to pop up any minute now. They were unable to land a Pitt-Jolie type of exclusive for their big wedding and were hustling around on Labor Day to salvage some sort of deal.
When you compare this amount to what Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made on their wedding, it seems like Brangelinea settled too low. Kim and Kanye were estimated to have made $21 million from their May nuptials, when you tally up the more than $15 million offered by E! to tape the event along with other deals. But we’ll bet when they didn’t get paid in dollars and cents, Brad and Angie got in the intimacy they clearly crave.
