Mariah Carey Is Struggling To Sell The First Photos Of Her Twins — She May Have To Settle For Just $200,000!

Magazines have made offers for the first shots of seven week old Moroccan and Monroe — but nowhere near the millions Mariah and husband Nick Cannon want.

The superstar couple are seeking a sum close to the $14 million Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were paid for photos of their twins Vivienne and Knox in 2008 — but they’re only likely to make a paltry $200,000!

Mariah’s rep insists it’s NOT about the money — the singer is just enjoying being a mom: “She is still deciding when and if she’s going to [do the pictures]. She is enjoying being a mom, and there’s no rush. It’s not about the money.”

But sources insist there are offers on the table and they fall SHORT of the 42-year-old’s expectations. An insider says, “There’s not much movement going on right now. Everyone wants them, and everyone is putting in offers. But times and budgets have changed from the Brangie baby years.”

Sources also claim they’re waiting to agree a deal, because Nick, 30 is nervous about cashing in on Moroccan and Monroe, and wants to make sure the photos are tasteful.

“Mariah and Nick are more concerned with doing the right thing than going to the highest bidder,” said a source tells the New York Post. “They’re talking to a number of publications about doing it in the best and most tasteful way. Nick has said on radio he doesn’t feel entirely comfortable selling pictures of his children. But the first picture remains very valuable to the paparazzi.

After he posed alongside a heavily-pregnant Mariah in Life & Style magazine in April, the comedian admitted, “My children are going to have to see these pictures . . . It’s a little weird.”

It’s great to see Nick’s nervous about exploiting his babies. Do YOU think they should sell the photos? Or put us all out of our misery and release them for free?

They should sell and donate the money to a worthy cause, a charity that is more specific to educating children or to pay for children who need medical attention.

Of course it’s about the money. It’s always about the money. I personally think that your children’s photos should be sacred, and not sold to the highest bidder.

What is this thing to sell your kids image ? and the prices they want to get is just ridiculous.
they should just release a picture on twitter or something, like some other celebs did ( like miranda kerr for example)

or Option 4… who cares? Ian Garland stop creating your own stories from “sources”. you’ve already said her “rep” has spoken and it seems like a valid answer they gave. that is the only source that is important. so just leave it at that. seems like you were pretty desperate to fill this webpage this week! lol. you can do better Ian, im sure.
