As speculated, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are going after Chad Hurley for leaking footage of Kanye's proposal to Kim.
As we previously reported, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were looking to sue the man who leaked footage of their engagement proposal-- it turned out to be YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley. Now a lawsuit has been filed by the couple.
The lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ, states that Hurley schemed to post the footage on his new video venture, MixBit, thus giving it a lot of free promo. Kanye and Kim say in the suit that Hurley was desperate to find a "second act" after the two ventures following YouTube flopped (he sold YouTube to Google for $1.65 billion.) They also say that Hurley wasn't even invited to the extravaganza at San Francisco's AT&T arena, however, he manipulated his way in.
Eventually the power couple decided to let Hurley stay, only after he signed a confidentiality agreement-- which they even got him to pose with (see the image in the gallery above), the image of which was attached to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit reads, "Hurley proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else." They go on to say that after Hurley tweeted out the MixBit engagement video to his followers (which are almost at a million), he even sent out a press release along with the video.
Kim and Kanye are suing him for unspecified damaged, including punitives. While they do not state how much the footage is worth, it was meant for the Kardashian reality TV show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
