Kim Kardashian and Kanye West win big settlement after engagement video was leaked

hellomagazine.com

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have agreed a settlement with YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley after he leaked a video of their engagement online. The couple sued Chad claiming that he had "manipulated" his way into AT&T Park in San Francisco in October 2013 to film Kanye's proposal.

Despite signing a confidentiality agreement, Chad then posted the footage onto MixBit, the video sharing service he co-founded in 2013.

TMZ reports that as a result of the court settlement, Chad will have to pay Kim and Kanye $440,000 within the next few days for the lawsuit to be dismissed.

Kim and Kanye have reached a settlement after their engagement video was leaked

Kanye hired out the AT&T Park Stadium to pop the question to Kim on her 33rd birthday in October 2013. As part of the elaborate proposal, the couple's friends and family were hiding in the stands watching, with the big moment filmed for their reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The couple tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Florence, Italy on 24 May and have since revealed that they are expecting their second child together – a baby brother for two-year-old daughter North.

Kim is believed to be almost six months pregnant, but was recently forced to dash claims that she was using a surrogate by baring all in a defiant Instagram post, saying she was sick of critics saying she either looked "too skinny" or "too big".

The big court settlement is not the only reason Kim and Kanye have to celebrate this week after it emerged that the rapper will be the recipient of the lifetime achievement award at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

The 38-year-old will receive the ceremony's highest honour, known as the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, in recognition of his "ground-breaking videos, legendary performances and continued impact on music, art, fashion and culture."
