Kanye West Sues YouTube Founder Chad Hurley Over Proposal Video Leak

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian sue YouTube founder Chad Hurley because they say he leaked a video of their engagement party.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are reportedly suing YouTube founder Chad Hurley, according to tmz.com.

West and Kardashian are suing Hurley for unspecified damages because Hurley posted a video of the couple's proposal on his new venture, MixBit. Hurley then released the footage along with a press release. 

West and Kardashian say that Hurley was looking to capitalize off their engagement after failing to match YouTube's success with other ventures, as per tmz.com.

In the lawsuit, Kardashian and West also say that Hurley was not invited to the event, according to tmz.com. The site also reports that Hurley was allowed to stay after agreeing to sign a confidentiality agreement. The couple have an image of Hurley holding the contract, according to tmz.com. The image is reportedly a part of court documents. 

"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," the couple say, as per tmz.com. 

The proposal may still be released for audiences. According to the lawsuit, the footage was meant to go to MC Cable Television, an arm of Bunim/Murray and E!, the network that houses "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," a reality television series based around the Kardashian family. The show has featured Kanye West in the past.

    no...the only reason he's doing this is to create publicity about his new engagement tape, he could have simply asked to take it down. but no would of heard about that.
