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."

Kim you dirty ass slut nobody cares about you, you are no one important. If you want privacy stop famewhoring and putting your pathetic life on national TV. No one is even interested in her sham wedding. PS go home and look after your baby you sad, pathetic, selfish slag.

If this fiasco was suppose to be a surprise to Kim, then how does she know who was invited?. Also since she did not throw the party why is she the one doing the suing? just proves she was in on the whole thing.

Oh, you mean that precious, private moment that she wanted to show on their reality overly scripted show??? She's suing because she's afraid it will have an impact on the shows ratings. PLEASE just go AWAY, and STAY private, with EVERYTHING you do from now on KK and family!!

What's wrong? Did you lose a buck? Frankly, I haven't watched your video. I've never watched your video's, show, or anything else. And truthfully? I never read articles about you, headline is as far as I ever get. Never will. Go home and be a mother. You really have no other use in life. BTW, birth control is your friend. That way we don't have to listen to you whine and weep about how horrible being pregnant is. Which is HIGHLY offensive to those women out there that would do ANYTHING to be able to have a baby and cannot. Wish you two would just fade away.

Wasn't she just saying she was going to "tone down her famewh0ring ways" of course I'm paraphrasing but methinks this smells of her mother's heavy hand. Also I cannot help but chuckle at the "surprise" proposal.

So she had people sign disclosure agreements, but then later says she knew nothing? You are an idiot if you believe a word that comes out of this self important dbag.
