And Kris Jenner isn't happy...
While there are pictures of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's wedding floating around the internet, they're all shots that were posted on Instagram. The couple turned down offers totaling up to $11 million for official pics from the wedding at Kanye's insistence and according to sources, Kris Jenner is very upset about it.
Page Six reports that offers were coming in from all areas to publish pictures, but that Kanye shut them down. One source said, "Kanye is taking a page from Jay and Bey, who own their photos." The source means that Jay and Beyonce typically release pictures on social media and their own website instead of selling them off. The source notes that Kris wanted to sell the pictures because she gets commission on her children's business interests as their manager and was "none too happy" that Kanye shut her down.
A source close to Kim said that Kris had nothing to do with her decision to turn down the money, saying, "These are Kim's wedding pictures. Kim and Kanye were getting offers for money, and they decided with their teams not to take any."
One possible reason for the lack of sold pics? According to another insider, the two didn't want people to compare this to Kim and Kris Humphries' wedding, which netted them $1.5 million from People Magazine.
