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."

It was all staged anyways! Sorry Kimmy can't make money off your fake proposal! All this because your show is failing and your clothing/makeup products suck.

As MLK once said, " I have a dream", could Kanye and Beyoncé please get on a transcontinental flight with no fuel and crash into the ocean. I am truly at a loss for words that any functioning human being can listen to the stool sample these two put out and call it entertainment. I have heard better things at 3 a.m. in those Vegas bathrooms with 30 rows of ****ters with drunks destroying porcilin. Beyoncé and Kanye are so bad it is pitiful. Milli Vanilli puts these two ****piles to shame.

When pimp mom heard they'd been scooped, she must have blown a fuse and rallied the troops. LMAO Douchers out douched. What a shame. And they're just trying to be so very private now too. Sniff. Poor dear, like I wonder if her like "soul" was hurt or like just that yawning maw of hers that swallows money, money, money.

These goings on are so nutty I just have to comment. These people seem to enjoy living a bizarre kind of life where they make videos, then rant and rave when the videos get ino the wrong hands. I've never heard of anything so completely vacuous in my life. Why not try doing something meaningful for the human condition for ce in your lives.

I would be embarrassed too if anyone discovered that I had spent this amount of money to display publicly something that should be private. Peezus you are such an idiot. Public displays of something like this magnifies the insincerity and your stupidity. Who did you do this for....certainly it wasn't for Kim. Hope it is kicked out of court.

Hypocrites! You two are absolutely delirious and desperate. We don't care about your lives! You only want money and someone pimped you by beating you to the punch. Privacy my eye! Only until you use it on your spiraling down show. Goodbye you goofs.
