Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Suing the Co-Founder of YouTube for Leaking Engagement Footage
You may think this seems like a bit much, but keep in mind: This is Kim Kardashian, the woman who once sued an actress for looking too much like her, and Kanye West, the dude who regularly goes on lengthy verbal and Twitter rants. This is not a bit much for them, and really, it only goes to show how perfect they are for each other. According to People, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are suing a co-founder of YouTube for leaking their engagement video, after they discovered it was none other than Chad Hurley, who was present at the event.
Apparently, the couple is claiming that Hurley violated a confidentiality agreement when he posted the video to his new video sharing site, and are saying that he wasn't even invited to the proposal — he was just allowed to stay "because he signed an agreement not to post any video or images from the event."
What happened here is likely that Hurley saw an opportunity to promote his new site, MixBit — which lets you upload and remix videos with other users — and promptly filmed what footage he could with the intention of posting it. If there were actually confidentiality agreements in place, Kardashian and West could actually have a case here. According to TMZ , to up his sleaze factor, he apparently also released a press release about the video to attract even more attention.
The couple is reportedly seeking unspecified damages for the video, claiming that the video has gone down in value since Hurley posted it — and that they had wanted to premiere it on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. And the saga continues...
