A co-founder of YouTube is paying a large settlement to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to settle a lawsuit, according to TMZ. The gossip website reports that Chad Hurley, one of the three founders of YouTube, must pay Kim and Kanye $440,000 for filming West’s proposal to Kardashian at San Francisco’s AT&T park and putting it on his new video site Mixbit. Hurley had reportedly signed a confidentiality agreement that prohibited spreading footage of the proposal.
$440,000 is a relatively small sum for Hurley, who sold YouTube to Google in 2006 for $1.65 billion. No word on whether the incident will stop West from rapping about YouTube among his many references to social media.
