YouTube Co-Founder Chad Hurley To Pay $400,000 To Kanye West And Kim Kardashian For Leaking Their Engagement Footage
YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley will have to pay $400,000 to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for breaking confidentiality. Read on to know more details.
Chad has been accused of sharing the footage of Kanye and Kim’s engagement illegally, breaking a confidentiality agreement. He will have to pay $400,000 for illegally taping and displaying their proposal which was held at a massive stadium.
The proposal was held at AT&T Park in San Francisco, 2 years ago in 2013. According to TMZ, the celebrity couple has decided to file a lawsuit against Hurley because he broke the law by shooting and sharing the footage despite signing a confidentiality agreement. Hurley illegally shared the footage on his new internet venture called MixBit and Kanye and Kim seem to be upset about it.
According to Business Insider India, Hurley attended the event despite not being invited and was only allowed on the condition that he signed a confidentiality agreement. He didn’t care about it and went on to shoot a video and upload it on MixBit. Not only that, he tweeted that video to nearly one million followers of his and also put out a press release.
Kim and Kanye have accused Hurley of trying to misuse their private matters to fund his new company after roping in $1.65 million by selling YouTube to Google with his partners, according to court documents. The footage rightfully belongs to Bunim/ Murray and E!, producers of the show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” It was even aired on E! during the show’s episode in February 2014.
Representatives of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian or Chad Hurley were not available for comments but $400,000 is rumored to be the fee the couple has demanded from Chad.
