Kris seethes at Kimye's refusal to sell royal wedding snaps which could have netted her millions

Kris Jenner is apparently 'seething' at missing out on millions in commission after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West opted not to sell their wedding photographs.

A source told Page Six that Jenner 'very much wanted to sell the pictures' and was 'none too happy' at the couple's decision to use social media and handouts of the snaps instead of an exclusive magazine deal.

Shots of the couple's lavish wedding on May 24 in Florence could have fetched a whopping $11 million, with 'momager' Kris getting commission on her children's business interests.

An inside source told the publication that international offers to publish the pictures topped $10 million.
But in the same vein as friends Jay-Z and Beyonce, Kanye decided to 'keep control of the shots.'

'Kanye is taking a page from Jay and Bey, who own their photos,' a source told the newspaper, pointing out that Beyonce used her Tumblr account to post the first snaps of her daughter Blue Ivy.

Kris negotiated the deal to sell pictures from Kim's wedding to Kris Humphries to People magazine for $1.5 million, with the U.S. publication also splashing out $300,000 for the couple’s engagement announcement.

But another source insists that Jenner's opinion was not a factor in Kimye's decision to turn down cash for the snaps.

'These are Kim’s wedding pictures,' the insider said. 'Kim and Kanye were getting offers for money, and they decided with their teams not to take any.'

The decision also serves to distance Kim from her ill-fated union with Kris Humphries where, not only were pictures sold, but the nuptials were also televised on Keeping Up With The Kardashians on E!

'You will see everything leading up 'til and after!' Kim tweeted to her fans earlier this month about the lack of cameras at the wedding.
'As much as we would love to share these memories on camera, we've decided to keep this close to our heart & share thru photos,' she added.

A number of official photographs were released via E! Online showing the couple embracing in front of a wall of white flowers, walking down the aisle hand in hand and Kim showing off her stunning lace wedding dress.
