Brangelina twins pix worth $14 m

NEW YORK: A person involved in the negotiations for pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s newborn twins says the rights were sold for $14 million.

The person asked not to be named because he was not authorised to release the figure. People magazine scored the photos in a joint deal with the London-based Hello! magazine, and the two will split the bill. People will feature Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon in an issue to hit newsstands on August 4, spokeswoman Nancy Valentino said on Friday.

The money will go to a foundation created by Pitt and Jolie that largely focuses on helping children around the world. The $14 million is nearly double the $6 million People paid to feature Jennifer Lopez and her newborn twins on a March cover, according to Forbes.
