Kanye West may have planned his proposal to Kim Kardashian with precision, but now the big moment has landed the couple in court.
Kimye are said to have filed a lawsuit against YouTube cofounder Chad Hurley, who filmed and posted footage online the next day.
According to E! News, the newly engaged duo 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.
But after the first video, albeit a pretty fuzzy one, emerged on YouTube the next day, Hurley looks to have broken his agreement. Oh dear.
The court papers continue: “Exclusive rights, such as those sold by plaintiffs to publication of video of the event, are particularly valuable.
“If people violate these rights…they are of substantially diminished value.”
Adding: “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.”
In plans to release the footage in his own good time, Kanye did allow the Keeping Up With The Kardashian cameras to capture the magical moment. Khloe Kardashian and co also shared snippets of the proposal via Instagram.
Sometimes even Kanye‘s best plans go a little wrong, eek!
