Kim Kardashian and her baby bump are on FIRE!!!
The pregnant lady bared her bump while vacationing in Greece, and an A-MAZING bikini pic hit the cover of Us Weekly (above).
The picture looked authentic, but was actually staged according to one magazine person in the know.
“The controversial cover appeared to be a random shot, but in fact was staged by Kim. Us paid $80,000 for the exclusive images, but it ultimately paid off as Kim and her baby bump gave them the best selling issue of the year.”
$80,000 isn't exactly chump change, but it still turned out to be a smart business move for both parties!
The real question, however, is when Kim finally pops out that baby - how much will the first look at those photos sell for?
One source said:
“The success of this Us Weekly cover has made all the weekly editors think again about Kim. If a baby bump picture can sell like that, can you imagine how many copies the pictures of the actual baby will sell?”
Initial reports estimated that Kim's baby pictures would go for $1 million possibly, but those numbers seem outrageously low.
And since we all know that Kanye loves to be number one - we're gonna go ahead and say it is VERY plausible that the Kimye baby pictures will come close, match, or possibly fetch even more money than Brad and Angelina's did.
Plus, Brad and Angelina gave away all of their baby photo money to charity.
Will Kim and Kanye follow suit???
Guess we'll just have to wait and see!!!
