Kim And Kanye Sue YouTube Founder For Leaking Proposal Video

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are suing the billionaire co-founder of YouTube for "breach of contract” and “fraud,” blaming him for leaking video of Kanye proposing.

Entrepreneur Chad Hurley recorded video of Kanye on bended knee at the stadium in San Francisco and uploaded it to his new video sharing site, Mixbit.

The video shows the Kardashians flooding the field and the fireworks celebration that followed.

Hurley, who sold YouTube in 2006 for $1.65 billion, tweeted the two-and-a-half minute video to his followers with the caption, "So this happened last night. Congrats Kim & Kanye!"

In the court papers, obtained by INSIDE EDITION, Kim and Kanye allege that Hurley used their engagement "to promote his new but foundering business enterprise (Mixbit.)"

They claim Hurley wasn't even invited to the top secret event, but was allowed to stay after signing an agreement "not to publish any images of or from the event."  

Cameras for E! Entertainment Television had the exclusive rights to film the engagement event for Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

According to the court papers, "Hurley proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself and acting as if he were a sponsor of the event."
