Yesterday (October 24), it was reported that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were reportedly planning to sue the person who released their proposal video, according to TMZ.
Well today (Oct 25), that lawsuit is going down, and Chad Hurley is the man under fire. It was initially reported that all attendees of the surprise proposal (who were mainly close family & friends) signed a confidentiality agreement to not release any video, pictures, or details of the event.
When the video hit the web, it went everywhere. Vanity Fair (one of the very first media groups to publish the video) published the video on October 23, reporting that it came from YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley, who uploaded it on his new video app, MixBit.
Hurley reportedly released the video with a press release explaining that the clip includes “the orchestra and lights show in anticipation of the proposal, Kanye down on one knee, the reaction from family and friends, and the celebration and toasting to the newly engaged couple afterwards,”.
Hurley also released the video via Twitter (seen below).
So this happened last night. Congrats Kim & Kanye! https://t.co/o1FKsB87He
