1.5 million people flocked to Mixbit.com to watch the San Francisco proposal from rapper, Kanye West to Kim Kardashian. It’s only been a few days since the couple announced their engagement, but the media’s all over it. Given the coverage they have gotten, it feels like months.
The smiles in the photo used are all authentic, but Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were heated when the video hit the internet. When the announcement was first made, the couple said Kanye West MIGHT allow the footage to air on television. It was somewhat surprising when the footage hit the internet hours later.
Soon, it was revealed that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian may sue whoever leaked the footage. YouTube co-founder, Chad Hurley, leaked the video and reports say KimYe are angered and they will be suing. They are mad that someone close to them invited someone who would tape the proposal.
It turns out the footage was intended to be used for the upcoming season of E!’s “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
