It can be argued (quite easily), that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are fans of the spotlight, but one memorable moment has landed the founder of YouTube in a lawsuit.
Kimye filed a lawsuit Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court against Chad Hurley for releasing highlights from Kanye’s proposal on Oct. 21.
West asked Kardashian to marry him during a private event at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.
West and Kardashian probably have a case against Hurley because he, like all the guests at the engagement party, was forced to sign a confidentially agreement when he showed up at the park. The billionaire wasn’t personally invited; he tagged along with one of the other guests and was only allowed to stay after signing the document promising not to breathe a word about it. Lawyers for West and Kardashian claim he taped and then released the footage to promote MixBit, his new start-up.
West and Kardashian requested actual and punitive damages for Hurley’s violation of the agreement. The amount is unspecified.
