EXCLUSIVE pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's newborn twins fetched $US14 million (RM 45 million), a person involved in the negotiations told The Associated Press, giving People magazine and a British tabloid joint rights to publish the most expensive celebrity pictures ever taken.
The person asked not to be named because he was not authorised to release the figure. People will feature Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon in an issue to hit news stands on Monday, spokeswoman Nancy Valentino said on Friday.
The money - more than double the $US6 million ($A6.38 million) People paid for Jennifer Lopez' twins on a March cover, according to Forbes - will go to a foundation created by Pitt and Jolie that largely focuses on helping children around the world.
Angelina Jolie, 33, gave birth to a boy, Knox Leon, and a girl, Vivienne Marcheline, by Cesarean section on 12 July night at the Santa Maria clinic of the Lenval Foundation in Nice, France
