Youtube Founder To Pay Kim And Kanye For Leaking Proposal Video

YouTube founder Chad Hurley will reportedly be cutting a big check to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for secretly filming their ballpark engagement ceremony.

Hurley has agreed to pay the celeb couple $440,000 in settlement cash to close the books on a lawsuit connected to a leaked video of their lavish engagement at San Francisco's AT&T Park in 2013.

News of the settlement was reported by TMZ.

In the suit, KimYe claimed the 38-year-old tech mogul broke a confidentiality agreement when he secretly filmed Kardashian saying "Yes" and posted a two-and-a-half minute video of the elaborate scene on MixBit, his video startup.

Hurley posted the video and tweeted it to his followers on Oct. 22, 2013 — a day after the proposal, which fell on Kim's 33rd birthday — along with a message saying, “Congrats Kim and Kanye!”

Hurley's legal team had argued the confidentiality agreement was not binding and that posting the video amounted to free speech.

Meanwhile, the settlement cash is likely a mere drop in the bucket for Hurley, who founded YouTube in 2005 with Steve Chen and Jawed Karim.

The part-owner of the Golden State Warriors and his partners sold the site to Google in 2006 for $1.65 billion. He has an estimated net worth of $330 million.
