Kris Jenner wants Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West to sell their wedding pictures to the highest bidder, but the newly married couple has other ideas. According to the New York Post, Kim and Kanye had the opportunity to sell them internationally. Needless to say, this has left Kris furious that she is going to lose out on all that money. Being the Kardashian manager, Kris would receive a hefty commission from the sale.

An inside source told the New York Post that offers on Kim and Kanye’s wedding pictures soared past $10 million. However, Kanye has taken control and refused all offers. He will have total say over when any pictures are released on social networks. A source said, “Kanye is taking a page from Jay and Bey, who own their photos.”

Jay Z and Beyonce believe that a wedding is a private affair, not to be turned into a money-making opportunity.

However, another source disputed the fact that Kris had nothing to do with Kim and Kanye’s ultimate decision. “These are Kim’s wedding pictures. Kim and Kanye were getting offers for money, and they decided with their teams not to take any.”

Kim and Kanye were married on May 24, 2014 in Florence, Italy. The couple treated wedding guests to a pre-wedding party in Paris, France. After the wedding, Kim and Kanye honeymooned in Ireland and later finished honeymooning in Mexico.

Kim wanted something to be different between this wedding and the one she had with Kris Humphries. That marriage lasted only 72 days. E! televised the ceremony and the pictures allegedly sold to People magazine for around $1.5 million. Keeping control of the pictures is Kim and Kanye’s way of keeping the two weddings separate.

If Kim and Kanye's wedding last longer than a year, that should made it different enough.

Do you think that Kris should have a say in whether Kim and Kanye's wedding pictures are sold? Do you believe that it cheapens a wedding to sell the pictures to the highest bidder?
