Why Kimye Are Receiving $440,000 From Youtube Founder
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her rapper husband Kanye West are to receive $US440,000 ($A614,053) after reaching a settlement with a tech tycoon who leaked a video of their engagement online.
West proposed to Kardashian in spectacular fashion in front of friends and family with fireworks and a 50-piece orchestra at AT&T Park in San Francisco, California in October, 2013, but there was one unwelcome guest - YouTube.com co-founder Chad Hurley.
The couple claimed the entrepreneur manipulated his way into the stadium to witness their special moment, and had to sign a confidentiality agreement in order to stay.
However, Hurley secretly recorded the proposal and then posted a video online, prompting the couple to sue.
After failing to have the lawsuit dismissed in March, Hurley has agreed to settle the case for $US440,000, according to TMZ.com.
The website reports that the former YouTube executive is expected to pay the settlement in the next few days.
