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."

If this moment was to be so private, how did the you tube guy know it was happening? Does he just hang around closed ballparks? It's nice that they even had Jayden Smith there and not their own baby.

Well!!! this one is pretty much cut and dry, he is going to have to pay up and pay up big, you don't sign confidentiality agreements and then give up information, and they have a pic, he is done, they are going to take a good chunk of that billion.

Is anyone surprised their outrage is in proportion to Hurley's fortune? He's a billoinaire and they see a chance at a big pay off. Kim and Kanye are crass to the core.

However you all may feel he signed a confidentiality agreement. He broke it therefore he should face consequences. They can be the most hated but when it comes down to it.they are doing it legally

Thought it was a private affair and Kim knew nothing about it. Does Kanye not have any friends who can talk some real sense to him as this is not going to end well? Calling the Paps to an intimate affair, these folks are the height of all that has gone wrong in society.

She and Kanye are morons! If they are mad about the video being released, it's because they probably told E! that they could show the video on her show. She loves her life to be put on blast. She either authorized the release, released it herself, or had something to do with it. She planned the proposal herself and is trying to act like she had no idea. She designed the ring herself! She is stupid. I'm tired of these two. They are doing all they can to get attention. It's annoying already.

The entire Kim and Kanye situation has turned into a bad circus act. Is Kanye losing his mind? Why are some people so litigious? With Kim posing cheap photos of herself in a bathing suit, she is the last person who values privacy. Kanye has lost his mind and should take some time out to reevaluate his latest behavior. It is rather disgusting.
