Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Sue Over Proposal Video Leak

YouTube co-founder named as defendant, was not even invited.

It's confirmed. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are suing YouTube cofounder Chad Hurley over that fuzzy two-and-a-half minutes of proposal video that he posted to his new website, MixBit, reports TMZ.

The newly-engaged couple claim that Hurley wasn't invited to the event, and once he made his way in, he, "proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else," reads the lawsuit.

For Kimye, beyond it being a private family moment, it's money. E! cameras were already there ―
 the network airs Keeping Up With the Kardashians ― and Hurley was asked to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Kimye says Hurley literally stole their shine because, since he sold YouTube (to Google for $1.65 billion), his other Internet ideas have been flops, and he wanted to direct traffic to his new launch, MixBit. They claim Hurley did this by sending a press release out about the bootleg footage, and tweeting a link to it to his 500,000 followers.

They are seeking an undisclosed amount from him and his company, Avos Systems Inc.
