Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are reportedly not going to entertain the idea of cashing-in millions for just coughing up a few photos of their recently born daughter, North West.
While the baby's face remains a mystery, new reports claim KimYe will not accept huge offers to dish out pics.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are passing up several million smackeroos ... because they've decided not to attach a price to priceless baby pics of North West. The pics could fetch a cool $3 mil ... but we're told K & K have already rejected such an offer. Our sources says Kim and Kanye toyed with the idea of selling the pics and donating the money to charity, but decided against it. They've decided to go one of two routes: Either release the pics to a fancy mag like Vanity Fair, or pull a Bey/Jay Z and release a crude snap on social media. We're hoping they can still make ends meet. (TMZ)
Recently, former boxing champion Laila Ali spoke out and took blame for taking a shot at the couple's newborn's name.
"Okay, I was recently at a charity event and I was asked my opinion on some of these non-traditional and creative names and I was speaking very candidly and honestly as I always do. And you know, as a parent, knowing how cruel the world is and the bullying, and you know, kids have to grow up and get a job one day, I did say that I think some of these name choices are stupid. I do realize that it was a poor choice of words, you know, it wasn't to single out Kim or Kanye. I actually mentioned a bunch of names, not just the name North. It was a general opinion to a question that I was asked, but it doesn't matter. I do realize and I take responsibility for it. I have no problem doing that. It was a poor choice of words that I used. ... You know I actually reached out to Kim and Kanye to apologize." (Egypt Said So)
Footage of Ali speaking out on KimYe's baby name surfaced online last week.
"A lot of people do things because it's a fad and they want to get some attention.. but this is your child...if it's crazy but cool and nice and it makes sense, that's one thing, but North and South and Leaf and Water Drop? Come on now, I don't care who you are that's just stupid, period." (Hip Hollywood)
West Coast rapper Game recently fully stood behind KimYe's decision to name their first child together North West and compared it to his and Jay Z's daughter's unique names.
"North West, one time for North West. Kanye, I'm gonna get you a cigar, man. I'm gonna stuff it with a little California if you know what I mean," Game said in an interview. "Fatherhood is beautiful, enjoy it man. A baby girl is nothing but a blessing. I had two boys and when I had my baby girl, it rechanged my life for a third time. The best of luck with North West and that's a dope a** f*cking name. I did the best I could with Cali Dream. I think it's right up there with North West. Ivy Blue. Is it Ivy Blue or Blue Ivy? Blue Ivy. ... Keep getting creative with these kids names. But congratulations to Kim K, Kim K West, Kanye and North West. That's dope man." (Rap-Up TV)
