YouTube Co-Founder Sued By West, KardashianKanye West and Kim Kardashian are suing YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley for reportedly publishing a video of their marriage proposal without their consent.
According to West and Kardashian in their case filed on Thursday, Hurley defied a confidentiality agreement he has signed when he posted a video of the West-Kardashian marriage proposal to his newest site, MixBit.
The couple say that Hurley “manipulated” entry into the AT&T Park in San Francisco where West proposed to Kardashian on October 21.
According to previous reports, West invited close family and friends of Kardashian along with a number of technology industry personalities to watch his proposal.
Hurley, reports say, was not invited to the event. However, he was allowed to stay to watch the event after signing a confidentiality agreement. Attached to the couple’s lawsuit is a photo of Hurley holding the confidentiality agreement.
The couple said in court documents that “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.”
Their lawyer has also scoffed at Hurley saying that the YouTube co-founder is desperate to find another hit product to follow his massive success after selling YouTube to Google for $1.65 billion.
West and Kardashian are suing for unspecified damages.
