People paid Christina Aguilera a reported 1.5 million dollars for pics of her newborn son Max, and shelved out a whopping 6 million dollars for those of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's new twins, Max and Emme. National Enquirer Executive Editor Barry Levine said that the whole process had become a big business nowadays, with magazines going the extra mile to make sure the paparazzi don't obtain the photos.
"It's become big business now. It's outrageous, they've gotten very sophisticated. The rights are bought up now even before the celeb enters the hospital. They hire extra security so it's impossible to obtain a photo illegally," the New York Post quoted him, as saying. He added that the people who would command the highest price would be Angelina Jolie and partner Brad Pitt.
Added American Media Editorial Director Bonnie Fuller: "If J.Lo really did get $6 million, then I think Angelina can now command 8 million USD. I can't think at this point who could command more money than Brangelina."
