Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West this week won a $44,000 settlement from YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley over their leaked proposal video.
As ENTmania! reported, the couple sued Hurley in 2013 for filming their extravagant engagement ceremony and uploading it to his MixBit website. Kim and Kanye claimed that Hurley violated the confidentiality agreement he signed by doing that.
Hurley tried to get the case tossed out by arguing that he was deceived into signing the agreement … and that he was unaware that he couldn’t film the engagement. But in April, a judge ruled against him, paving the way for the case to go to trial.
But on Thursday, it was reported that both sides have reached a settlement, which requires Hurley to pay the couple $440,000. This was confirmed by Kim and Kanye’s lawyer in a statement, which did not mention the amount of the settlement money.
‘My clients brought this case because they take confidentiality agreements seriously,’ said Kim and Kanye’s lawyer. ‘We are gratified that California’s trial and appellate courts upheld all our claims in this matter. With Mr. Hurley’s settlement payment, we believe a fair and just outcome has been achieved.’
