A source tells Page Six, “Joe is contacting all the weeklies and asking them to pony up $1 million to put Ashlee on the cover.” The deal would “include photos of Ashlee – taken by Joe, of course, so he can make more money – an interview and photos of the baby when she has it,” the source said. One magazine editor said the pictures would get “$60,000 maybe, but definitely not a million. The timing is a little suspicious. Her album [‘Bittersweet World’] is dropping next week, and there was little to no interest until now. Ashlee’s lucky she got pregnant, frankly.”
