A person involved in the negotiations for pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s newborn twins says the rights have fetched $14 million.
The person asked not to be named because he was not authorized to release the figure. People magazine scored the photos in a joint deal with the London-based Hello! magazine, and the two will split the bill.
It is the second time People magazine has won the North American rights to the couple’s exclusive baby pictures in exchange for a hefty donation to charity…
Getty Images was back in the game this time: In a statement, Getty co-founder and CEO Jonathan Klein said his company was “delighted that all proceeds from these stunning images will once again be donated entirely to charity. It is a privilege to use the power of our imagery to make a difference in the lives of so many throughout the world through the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.”
Jolie and Pitt established their foundation in 2006, and children are often the recipients of the charity’s bounty.
