According to MediaBuffet, a TMZ defector claims the Rihanna police photo set the gossip site back $62,500. The same source reveals $22,000 was paid for the Octo-Mom pregnant belly photo and $165k for a hidden tape of the OJ break-in.
Since the photo’s release, a debate has sparked over the ethics of publishing such material. Rihanna’s father says it’s a good and bad thing and that at least now people will be able to grasp the situation.
In either case, $62 grand?! I would have bid at most $10 and a slice of pizza. It may seem a little on the low side, but I’ll have you know, it was a big slice of pizza and had almost three toppings.
