Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are heading to court following leaked footage of THAT big proposal. Get the details...
Kanye West captured the showbiz world’s attention last month when he proposed to Kim Kardashian during a San Francisco football game.
But the big moment has now led to a surprise lawsuit as Kanye sues over a leaked video that made its way onto YouTube.
The Yeezus rapper may have taken the very public approach to proposing, but it seems he had big plans to share the footage on his own terms from there.
According to E! News, Kim and Kanye have now filed a lawsuit against YouTube cofounder Chad Hurley, who filmed and posted the video from San Fran’s AT&AT Field.
Apparently the couple say that Hurley “tagged along with someone who was invited”, but was allowed to stay after signing a confidentiality agreement prohibiting him from posting videos or images from that night.
The video went viral the next day as fans jumped at the chance to watch the public proposal for themselves – albeit via some very fuzzy footage on YouTube.
It’s thought that Kanye did allow the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s cameras to film, as well as whizzing an exclusive clip to one entertainment website.
'Exclusive rights, such as those sold by plaintiffs to publication of video of the event, are particularly valuable,' the lawsuit is said to state.
The complaint continues: 'If people violate these rights… they are of substantially diminished value.
'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.'
Kim’s friends and family also shared various photos from the night, but no video footage was shared prior to the YouTube leak.
It sounds like Kim and Kanye have genuine grounds to be annoyed, what do you think?
