Kim and Kanye

Billionaire Fights Back

You NEVER Told Me I Couldn't Shoot Wedding Proposal

The billionaire who co-founded YouTube is refusing to back down from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West -- firing back at the couple after they sued him for posting video of their engagement online.

We broke the story ... K&K filed a lawsuit against Chad Hurley, claiming he violated the confidentiality agreement he signed at AT&T Park in San Fran back in October ... when he posted the footage on his video-sharing website.

But now, Chad has filed legal docs of his own ... claiming NO ONE ever told him he wasn't allowed to shoot or distribute the footage.

Chad says ... after the proposal, someone did approach him with a waiver and told him it was a release so they could use his image in a TV special .. and he signed the doc without reading it.

He also posed for a pic with the signed form, at the request of K&K's peeps.

But still, Chad says he shouldn't be legally bound by the waiver because he was misled into signing it and he got no compensation in return for signing away his rights.

Chad is asking the judge to throw out the case -- and force Kim and Kanye to pay for his legal fees.

Clearly, Chad can afford it ... he's just trying to send a giant F-you back to the happy couple.

Obviously the billionaire didn't get that way by learning how to read. Hey moron can you sign this million dollar check for me made out to Cash. Don't worry it's just for your electric bill.

Seems like everyone wants to send a giant F-you to the happy, ignorant, empty-headed couple of brain-dead morons. I know I do.... I hope he just strangles them with superfluous legal crap, for the sole purpose of draining away their precious money ha ha...
