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."

I bet this is what happened.. Kanye was told the cameras were there just to have a family video of the proposal. Kim or kris was in cahoots with this guy and said there's no way kanye will agree to put this on tv so you have to leak it and you keep the profits. If it's leaked then I can use it also for my show because then kanye will not care because everyone has already seen it anyway. Kanye is just as dumb as humphries and ill divorce him shortly after the wedding cause that's why I do and stupid Americans will tune in again for my over the top wedding

Chad Hurley should sue back for millions! After all he once owned youtube I am sure he is rich enough to sue K & K for their money.

Baseball stadium? Isn't she a basketball slut? Oh well, skanks dont discriminate I guess. She should be used to "leaking", I hear Ray J leaked on her in a private video. Kanyes just pissed (no pun intended..okay, it was intended) because he couldn't leak it AND get paid first.

FFS can these two just get over themselves? This has gone from the ridiculous to the sublime. Their over-inflated sense of self importance is their own. As much as they would like people to always be out to get them they might be saddened to find out that most people are not interested in interfering with the fake privacy. They themselves put it all out there and if its not themselves then its someone very close to them. Save your suing hassles and just go be parents like your idols Beyonce and Jay Z. You two are well past your sell by date. How many times do you have to hear that? You're now embarrassing yourselves.

Enough! GET OVER YOUR DAMN SELVES you sue-happy jerks! In a few years you'll be old news... you guys make me sick and epitomize everything that's wrong with our society. Why not spend you money on important things, instead of paying for lawyers to get back at people who interfere with everything going your way? You're fame whore and your entire livelihoods are based on your fame-whoring, so stfu.
