Kanye West To Reportedly Sue YouTube Co-Founder Chad Hurley

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian are reportedly set to sue YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley over the release of footage from the couple's proposal.

Yesterday (October 24), it was reported that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are reportedly planning to sue the person who released their proposal video, according to tmz.com.

Kardashian and West reportedly plan to sue the person responsible for the video's release because they say it was disseminated without their consent and because everyone present at their engagement party signed a confidentiality agreement. The site reports that a lawsuit is imminent. 

Vanity Fair published the video on October 23, reporting that it came from YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley, who uploaded it on his new video app, MixBit. 

Hurley reportedly released the video with a press release explaining that the clip includes “the orchestra and lights show in anticipation of the proposal, Kanye down on one knee, the reaction from family and friends, and the celebration and toasting to the newly engaged couple afterwards,” as per Vanity Fair

Hurley also released the video via Twitter. 

In August, Kanye West talked about his relationship with Kardashian on her mother Kris Jenner's talk show, "Kris." 

"I'm trying to remember if the first time we met was her being in the studio when she was Brandy's assistant," Kanye West said. "I think she brought us in something to drink that you can't drink on daytime TV, but we were in the studio so it was okay. Or it might have been when I was doing Brandy's video. I remember asking my manager, 'Who is that girl?'" 

During the "Kris" interview, West also defended his relationship with Kardashian.

"I could have people saying, 'This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or a designer,'" West said. "And I say, 'I don't care. I love this woman.' Or someone could say, 'When the paparazzi surround you, everyone knows you don't like the paparazzi. Why would you be with this person?' And I'm saying, 'I'm being with this person because I love this person and she's worth it to me."

West and Kardashian have a daughter together, North West, who was born June 15.

    I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!
