Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Are Suing the Man Who Leaked Their Proposal

kim kardashianThe world's most in love (with themselves, jk) couple are mad. Suing mad. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are suing Chad Hurley, the man who co-founded YouTube and sold it to Google for $1.65 billion, for leaking the adorable video of them getting engaged on his new site, MixBit. Apparently, they made every single person who was there sign a confidentiality agreement and take a photo with said agreement (yep, there's one of Hurley). In the lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ, K Squared claim that Hurley is "desperate for a second act" since he's had two failed business ventures since YouTube. They also say that Hurley wasn't invited to the event, but manipulated his way in (not sure how one manipulates their way into a proposal).

At first when you hear this, you think: "Damn. Kim and Kanye really are super in love. They didn't want a single, solitary person seeing them get engaged." But then you hear the rest of the story ...


According to TMZ, the super private proposal at the super public baseball stadium was intended for MC Cable Television, which is a subsidiary of Bunim/Murray and E!, which produces and airs Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Yeah. Kind of makes it seem like the couple was less concerned with privacy and more concerned with making some coin. Although what this Hurley guy did was gross and devious, it's kind of hard to feel bad for Kim and Kanye when it seems like they're the ones who wanted to make their intimate moment public.

North's parents are suing for unspecified damages, including punitives. They don't specify how much the video was worth, but I'm thinking, if Kris Jenner has anything to do with this, Kim and Kanye are going to be just a little richer when all is said and done.

Do you think Kim and Kanye are more concerned with money or their privacy?
