OK! Magazine pulled their offer to pony up $1.7 Million for exclusive photos of DanniHope's first Birthday party. OK! claims they pulled their offer, because they found some effed up crap on Larry Birkhead and they are having "moral issues." Larry claims OK! is pissed, because rival UsWeekly put DanniHope on their cover.
Larry told TMZ , "I was just threatened via email by (the reporter) that OK! would do a negative story on me if I did any stories with any other mags. Ridiculous!!! I am not sure what planet she's on but I am not going to be threatened. She blew it!"
TMZ also got a hold of an e-mail OK!'s Editor-In-Chief sent to Larry, "You know how well we've treated you … from free suits to getting a singer for your party … to be honest, we are upset that you've turned on us."
The EIC issued this official statement:
"Newly obtained allegations are detailed, shocking and potentially incriminating. Furthermore, it makes it impossible for OK!, in good conscience, to promote this family’s highly questionable relationship in our pages. Next week's issue of OK! will bring all of the unfortunate, relevant details to light."
"It breaks my heart that OK! has to pull out of a shoot that would have chronicled the next great chapter of Dannielynn's life. That sort of celebration is what the magazine enjoys most. But first and foremost, we—and I—care dearly about the well-being of the young one, and my moral obligation lies with her. So, it's unfortunate, but at the moment, my biggest fear is that Larry and Howard may have tricked us all."
This is the way I see it. Larry is shady for selling his daughter for a cool (almost) 2 million. OK! is shady, because they claim they are having moral issues. Moral issues?! Come on now!!! It's about the mighty dollar people! It's a business. It's not about morals. Look at me talking like I even know what morals are! What is that word?
Howard is shady, because he's just always shady.
I still wanna read the dirt OK! has though.
