How much would you pay for a picture of Nick Lachey nude? How about Vanessa Minnillo nude? Or even both?
Reportedly, if you're OK! magazine, there is a price tag to be put on such sex photos: $400,000.
Indeed, the Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo sex pics have been purchased for just under a half million dollars, according to a report from the New York Daily News. But does this mean we'll get to see each and every naked pose?
Like those Lindsay Lohan nude photos that supposedly exist, this remains unclear.
Yes, Vanessa Minnillo is naked in this photo from Maxim. But it's not included in the batch a magazine recently purchased.
Just because OK! dished out the case for these for these photographs doesn't mean the publication plans on running them. While sources say the images are fairly tame - although nowhere near as tame as those Amy Polumbo pics - they would still damage Lachey's career because he has built a sweet, innocent reputation for himself.
As such, OK! - which is known for actually protecting people and not giving in to the pressures of the celebrity photo world - might keep them locked up. But that would beg the question:
Did they really pay so much money just to keep a secret for Nick and Vanessa?
