Are Kanye West and Kim Kardashian suing over that leaked proposal video from their engagement?

TMZ reports that West and Kardashian are "pissed off" that someone recorded their Oct. 21 engagement at San Francisco's AT&T Park and leaked it to the press -- and they might sue. The website reports the person who did it signed a confidentiality agreement. "We're told a lawsuit is imminent."

The person who filmed and uploaded the Kimye proposal video was YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley. The 2-and-a-half minute clip was posted to his new collaborative video app, MixBit, and has since gotten more than 1.5 million views.

Although the proposal video wasn't the only footage from the night (the reality star's BFFs Jonathan Cheban and Robin Antin uploaded some Instagram pics), it was, by far, the most intimate look at the lavish proposal dreamed up by Yeezy.

"It seems like Yeezus and Mary were OK with a few Instagrams from their guests, but Hurley's footage went beyond snapshots -- and has racked up almost 1.5 million views since last week," writes ValleyWag's Sam Biddle. "We were wondering why the hell the co-founder of YouTube was at Kanye West's marriage proposal, and now, it seems privacy-craving Kanye is wondering the same thing."

While West does like both privacy and control, it's hard to believe he would actually sue the Silicon Valley honcho. However, there might be an issue if the footage was meant to be a surprise for an upcoming "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" episode or an E! special.

Reps for MixBit and Kardashian could not be immediately reached for comment.
