Kris is fuming after Kanye said no to $11m for his wedding pics!

Los Angeles - Kris Jenner is reportedly furious after Kanye West refused to sell his wedding pictures.

The Bound 2 rapper and his new wife Kim Kardashian - with who he has 12-month-old daughter North - were offered over $11m to publish pictures of their nuptials in Florence, Italy, last month in publications across the globe, but decided to keep the rights and control of the images themselves, much to the unhappiness of the showbiz matriarch, who, as her daughter's manager, would have gained a percentage of sales for herself.

A source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "Kris was none too happy.

"Kanye is taking a page from Jay Z and Beyonce, who own their photos."

Another source admitted Kris had nothing to do with Kim's decision to refuse all offers for the photographs, which she and Kanye have opted to release themselves through their social media accounts.

The source said: "These are Kim's wedding pictures. Kim and Kanye were getting offers for money, and they decided with their teams not to take any."

As well as maintaining control, the couple are said to have decided against selling the pictures as they wanted to differentiate their nuptials from Kim's wedding to Kris Humphries in August 2011, for which her mother negotiated a deal which saw People magazine pay a reported $1.5m for the wedding pictures, plus $300 000 for their engagement.
