Usually celebrities spend lot of money on their marriages, but Kim Kardashian, who is tying the knot with NBA player Kris Humphries, is making money out of it. Yes! The reality TV star has reportedly sold her wedding photos to the People magazine for a whopping amount of $1.5 million.
Earlier, The weekly had shelled out $300,000 to Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries for their engagement announcement in May. And the Britain's OK! magazine paid $100,000 them for exclusive bridal shower coverage. Now, it is the People magazine, who is paying $1.5 million to the couple.
These high-priced deals make Kardashian one of the rare brides who will actually bring in more for her wedding than she paid for it. Saturday's ceremony has been estimated to cost at least half a million dollars but those costs are offset by items such as a free, $20,000 Vera Wang gown and a lucrative deal with E! for the two-part Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event special, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
However, this is not the first time a Hollywood celebrity is cashing in on her wedding ceremony. Earlier, stars like Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and Elizabeth Taylor had made money out of their weddings. OK! had paid Zeta-Jones and Douglas one million pounds for the right to publish exclusive photos, while The People gave $1 million and $50,000 Taylor and Cruise-Holmes weddings respectively.
