Kim Kardashian Pictures, Fine, But Proposal Video Leaves Kanye Fuming
Kim Kardashian pictures are all over the internet, though she and Kanye are fuming about a leaked video.
Kim Kardashian's pictures are all over Twitter. They're all over Instagram. One quick hop to our Kim Kardashian pictures gallery and you've got enough photos to last you a lifetime, though it seems that despite the power couple's penchant for sharing pictures over social networks - and Kim's need for publicity (hey, it's her job) they're absolutely incensed that a video of Kanye proposing marriage has hit the web.

In a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.com, Kim and Kanye's lawyer Eric George is going after Chad Hurley - the guy who set up YouTube and sold it to Google for $1.65 billion. The celebrity couple claim Hurley is one who posted the video of Kanye proposing at AT&T Park in San Francisco on his new internet venture MixBit.
According to Kim Kardashian and her soon-to-be hubby, Hurley was desperate to find a "second act" after two flops since the sale of YouTube and used the proposal video to boost the popularity of his new venture.
In the lawsuit, K&K claim Hurley wasn't even invited to the stadium in San Fran and somehow manipulated his way in. The couple say they eventually let him stay but made him sign a confidentiality agreement. They even got him to take a picture holding the signed confidentiality agreement, which is attached to the lawsuit.

They 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."
The problem for Kim and Kanye is that Hurley is a guy who sold YouTube for $1.65 billion and took $345.6 million away for himself. On top of that, he received 694,087 shares in Google and another 41, 232 in a trust. Put simply, he's absolutely minted and could pay Kim and Kanye $10 million in damages without even thinking about it. His new website gets publicity - and visitors - and he shells out a little bit of cash IF the case even goes any further.
Kim and Kanye are suing for unspecified damages including punitives. They don't say how much the video is worth though do mention it was destined for MC Cable Television, which is an arm of Bunim/Murray and E! which produces and broadcasts Keeping Up the Kardashians. Essentially, it was going to feature on the famous family's reality show. Oops.
Despite getting engaged, it's not been the greatest of weeks for old Kanye. He's been forced to cancel a string of US Yeezus tour dates after a truck carrying equipment including a huge LED screen crashed. The rapper postponed dates in Anaheim, Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis.
On top of that, Lana Del Rey 'politely' turned down Kanye's request for her to sing at the wedding proposal in San Francisco. The 'Blue Jeans' singer is known to be one of Kim's favorites, though Kanye was forced to hire an orchestra instead.
