Kim Kardashian suing YouTube founder over leaked Kanye West proposal video

Kim Kardashian is not having it after telling Jay Leno she is tired of people invading her privacy and is suing YouTube’s co-founder for allegedly leaking footage of Kanye West’s proposal. Video of Kanye West proposing was published online via MixBit, a new video company, in the days after West popped the question at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

In a lawsuit, Kardashian says Chad Hurley, who co-founded both YouTube and MixBit, is the man responsible for the leak.

According to legal documents, Kardashian alleges Hurley wasn’t invited to the event, which was planned as a surprise party for her 33rd birthday with her closest friends and family in attendance, but he somehow got inside. When he was granted permission to stay, Hurley signed a confidentiality agreement and was even photographed holding the contract.

Kardashian alleges that didn’t stop him from trying “to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else.”

The lawsuit points out that Hurley not only posted the footage online, but tweeted it to his 900,000-plus followers, and even sent out a press release heralding the video. Kardashian is suing for unspecified damages, says TMZ.

Do you think Kardashian is really mad at the leak or is she mad because didn’t get paid for it? –joi pearson @joiapearson
