A deal between OK! Magazine and Christina Aguilera for the first pictures of the singer's son Max Liron Bratman has reportedly fallen through.
There won't be Christina Aguilera's son on newsstands, literally. The pop singer has reportedly pulled out of a deal with OK! Magazine for the first pictures of her newborn son Max Liron Bratman because the publication could not guarantee a full-cover photo of the mother-and-son.
Speaking on that matter, a source told MSNBC, "Christina has an inflated sense of her own value and seems to expect an extortionate amount of money for these baby pictures."
The source revealed further, "I'm not sure OK! or much of the industry thinks is a dollar figure that's worth it. ... She hasn't proven to be a real seller" adding that "The OK! wedding cover didn't sell as well as they hoped, and even her recent Marie Claire cover underperformed, all things considered."
In other related news, it's been reported that Christina has also banned any magazine that using her baby photos from running pictures of Nicole Richie's baby Harlow Winter Kate Madden. "Christina can't stand Nicole. Nothing would make her more upset than to see those two babies on the same cover, even if it wasn't at the same time," another source revealed.
