Kim Kardashian Sues Over Leaked Proposal Video


Kim Kardashian is suing the guy who allegedly leaked Kanye’s private proposal to a video-sharing site.

In the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Kim’s lawyer, Eric George, goes after Chad Hurley, the guy who co-founded YouTube and sold it to Google for $1.65 billion.   Kim claims Hurley is the one who conspired to post the video and share it via his new Internet venture, MixBit.

Kim goes for the jugular, saying Hurley was desperate to find a “second act,” after 2 flops following his YouTube sale.  In the lawsuit, Kim claims Hurley wasn’t even invited to AT&T Park in San Fran but manipulated his way in.

Kim says 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).

Kim says, “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 says 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 is suing for unspecified damages … including punitives.  Even though Kim doesn’t say how much the video was worth, Kim mentions it was destined for M C Cable Television, which is an arm of Bunim/Murray and E!, which produces and broadcasts “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

Ouch. While we’re glad to have gotten to see the video, we can’t imagine that Hurley feels it was worth it.
