Kim, Kanye SUE

How DARE You Leak Our Proposal Video!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West think private events at major baseball stadiums should stay private ... and that's why they're suing the guy who allegedly leaked Kanye's precious, private proposal to a video-sharing site.

In the lawsuit ... obtained by TMZ ... their lawyer, Eric George, trashes Chad Hurley, the guy who co-founded YouTube and sold it to Google for $1.65 billion.   Kim and Kanye claim Hurley is the one who schemed to post the video on his new Internet venture, MixBit.

K & K go for the jugular, saying Hurley was desperate to find a "second act," after 2 flops following his YouTube sale.  In the lawsuit, Kim and Kanye claim Hurley wasn't even invited to AT&T Park in San Fran but manipulated his way in. 

Kim and Kanye say they let him stay, but only after he signed a confidentiality agreement.  And get this ... they even got him to take a pic holding the signed confidentiality agreement, which is attached to the lawsuit (below).

The couple say, "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."

Specifically, Kim and Kanye say he posted Kanye's engagement proposal on MixBit and tweeted it to nearly a million followers.  He then had the audacity to issue a press release, touting his video trophy.

Kim and Kanye are suing for unspecified damages ... including punitives.  Even though Kim and Kanye don't say how much the video was worth, they mention it was destined for MC Cable Television, which is an arm of Bunim/Murray and E!, which produces and broadcasts "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

Get over you! You did this, no one else! You're the one who needs attention. No on else! Over you!


Btw you've ruined your looks with too many procedures and you can't take them back! The blonde hair makes you look cheap. Your fake happy is see thru. Go back, when you were with Kris you were thin & pretty and seemed happy without acting.

Private my ass. Private would be in the confines of one of their homes. A surprise wouldn't be that hard to pull off with the entire family around. At a baseball stadium with a band, invited guests and a freaking proposal flashing on the fricking JumboTron. I wish both of them and her entire family would spontaneously combust.

OK    

These two obviously don't know the meaning of the word private. Sad the only way they can get any attention is to pretend to be upset by a "private" video being leaked. Vulgar, shameless pieces of trash.

What I don't get is ... Why would Attorney Eric George lend his name in this scam? Thought he was a serious lawyer and wanted to avoid fame whores, especially after Oksana Grigorieva/Mel Gibson fiasco.

Kanye and Kartrashian must have made a deal with Hurley. He gets to leak the first images (of course approved by Kanye and Ktrashians) on his new venture MixBit for a hefty price. Hurley gets the hits and pimp momma makes another huge deposit to the vault. To keep interest going they file a lawsuit claiming foul with weak lawyer Eric George (FREE publicity) but this lawsuit will go nowhere. He had no legal council to represent him when he signed. The public is being fleeced once again. Why else would billionaire Hurley want to get mixed up with this disgusting group? Business people are not stupid.... Hurley knew he would get the hits he wanted with the Ktrashians. It's business.
