Poor Max, he’s just a couple of weeks old and already neglected by all media frenzy. Apparently his precious mom, Christina Aguilera, wants mucho dineros for her baby pictures. She almost nailed the deal with Ok! but it all went down the hill, when the magazine couldn’t guarantee a full-cover photo. Isn’t this a shame.

“Christina has an inflated sense of her own value and seems to expect an extortionate amount of money for these baby pictures. 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.”

According to a person familiar with Aguilera’s contract, the terms include a promise that a magazine that buys the Aguilera baby photos may not run photos of Nicole Richie’s new baby. “Christina can’t stand Nicole,” said a source who knows Aguilera.

“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.”
