I swear to God, these two make me sick. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven’t shut up about just how elated they are about their engagement and how they wanna live in heaven together and brush each other’s fur coats or however they fill their time, but now they’re trying to claim that the video of their proposal that’s been everywhere online was actually “leaked”. Not only that, they’re trying to sue the co-founder of YouTube for it! Fuuuuuck off!
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.
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.”
HAHAHA okay, so wait… the problem here isn’t that their private relationship moment was shared with the public when it was meant to be just for them… it’s that THEY wanted to make money off of it by selling it to E! Oh my God, you couldn’t WRITE better trash than this.
I don’t necessarily believe that the contract stipulated the privacy of this video – after all, Hurley is a professional and this wouldn’t be his first confidentiality agreement (and knowing how litigious Kimye are, why would he even bother pushing it?) but even if he was that stupid, kudos to him. Kimye are the fucking worst and need to be rocketed right off this planet, like, yesterday.
