Kardashian became engaged to the NBA star Kris Humphries last month, with the magazine paying an initial $ 300,000 before making a second deal for wedding rights of just over USD 1 million.

According to sources, magazine staffers are concerned their investment won`t be fully recouped. Rival magazine `OK` reportedly made an offer of nearly USD 2 million but eventually pulled out of the bidding.

"People`s Kim engagement cover sold well, but did not as well as they hoped. Over a million copies were sold, which is good but not their best. And when you spend that much on a cover story, you expect it to sell," an insider said.        

Recent allegations that Kim was unfaithful to her fiance with NFL player Bret Lockett appear to have damaged the star`s reputation, with one source saying, "Some editors think the cheating scandal and the over-the-top ring and wedding could be a turn.
