Sure, it was held at a 40,000-capacity baseball stadium in San Francisco, had a lengthy guest list including the likes of Jaden Smith and Lorraine Schwartz and was serenaded by a 50-piece orchestra, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are maintaining that their engagement last week was, despite all the glitz and glamour, a private event.
That’s exactly why they’re reportedly suing YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley, who, according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, “manipulated” his way into AT&T Park and, despite signing a confidentiality agreement, leaked a video of the moment Kanye bent down on one knee and put a $1.25 million ring on her finger.
The video, which looks like it was shot from the dugout, quickly went viral after Hurley posted it to his website MixBit. But from the sounds of the new lawsuit, Kim and Kanye wanted to save that moment for later.
In the document, the couple maintains that Hurley was not actually invited to the engagement, but that he proceeded to “turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else.” They also included a photo of Hurley holding the confidentiality agreement.
In this case, that “someone else” may be is MC Cable Television, an arm of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” Bunim/Murray and E!.
There’s no way of knowing whether or not the moment will end up on “Keeping Up.” While the show surely captures intimate moments, in the season finale this Sunday, Kim kept the cameras out of the delivery room when she gave birth to Baby North.
