Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have refused offers of $3 million for photographs of their child North West.

North West was born on 15 June, surprising her parents and awaiting fans of the couple by arriving five weeks early. Kardashian may have given birth over two months ago yet no one, beyond Kardashian and West's immediate circle, has seen photographs of the child.
The couple, according to reports in TMZ, have already rejected an offer of $3 million for the snaps and it look as though they will continue to say no to offers. Initially the couple were, allegedly, considering donating the proceeds of the pictures to charity, but decided against it - because it's hard being a poor little rich couple isn't it?
If they had gone down this generous route, they would have followed the likes of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who sold the photographs of their new born twins (Vivienne and Knox) for $14 million to People and Hello magazine. The proceeds were donated to charity, hardly surprising considering Jolie is a UN ambassador. Whilst let's be fair: Kardashian is fame hungry and West has little more to offer society than flouncing around in oversized sunglasses. Oh, and making music.

Perhaps that's a little unfair, however, they have the capability of raising vast amounts of money and awareness for charity yet are refusing the opportunity.
Anyway, so the couple are left with two options. Either they will eventually cave, if the right offer comes along, and have their baby's pictures on a glossy magazine. Or else they'll simply post the images on one of their Twitter/Instagram pages.
