Yeah, we know, enough with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian already, but guess what? They actually made real news by suing the cofounder of YouTube for posting a video of their Oct. 21 engagement. Because two attention hounds like this pair deserve their privacy, see.

The couple filed the suit in L.A. County Superior Court Thursday against Chad Hurley, whom they said had "finagled entry" into their "exclusive event" at AT&T Park in San Francisco, Yahoo reports. Hurley was the guest of an invited guest, and signed a confidentiality agreement promising "he would not publish any aspect of the event."

He didn't seem to take that to heart, because he took video and posted it to his new site, MixBit. He also sent it out in a press release pimping his site to media outlets. Kimye saw it and wee not amused.

In case you were thinking this had anything to do with maintaining privacy, you can forget it: The couple reportedly wanted to maintain rights to video for E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians. They even had their own video crew there to record it.

They're seeking for unspecified damages, allegin breach of contract, fraud and something called unjust enrichment. Frankly, getting millions after making a sex tape with a third-tier rapper is unjust enrichment in our book.
