Blac Chyna vs. The Kardashians - A Ruined Career & Death Threats? Details From Inside Court.
While right now most people are focusing on the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial there is another high-profile case taking place that is involving Blac Chyna and the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Rob’s former fiance is suing the family for over $100 million and they have all been in the courtroom. The model has hit back against the family with accusations of purposefully canceling her reality show yet during the trial other things had come to light. What details do we know? Did Chyna threaten to kill one of the sisters? And why did she pull a gun on her ex? Read on to find out.
Reason For Being In Court
Earlier in April Blac Chyna had reestablished her 2017 lawsuit against the Kardashian. Especially targeting Kris, and her daughter Kim, Khloe, and Kylie. In the show, she had accused them of purposefully getting her and her ex-fiance Rob Kardashian’s E! reality show, Rob & Chyna, axed. She first revealed her plan at the start of the month, adding that the cancelation of the show meant that it was a huge financial loss for her two kids 5-year-old Drema whom she shares with Kardashian, and a 9-year-old King Cairo with her ex-Tyga.
Rob & Chyna’s Show
Their show, Rob & Chyna, was one of the Kardashians’ spinoffs that premiered in September 2016. That same month their months-long turbulent relationship came to an end. The show focused on their romance, which saw them engaged and pregnant within months of going public. When it premiered around 1.4 million viewers tuned into it but shortly after the pair's breakup made headlines, the ratings dropped below 1 million viewers. And it was soon after that Rob had posted multiple photos of Chyna on social media, which led to her filing for a restraining order against him in July 2017. Later on, she would go on to accuse him of domestic abuse in another lawsuit, but that was dropped after the two reached a settlement outside of court which included joint custody of their daughter.
She Threatened Rob With A Gun?
Weeks after that, Rob along with his sister Kylie, had sued Chyna. They alleged that she’d attempted to choke her ex with an iPhone cable during a fight, and that she had also raised a gun near him, among other harms. They later dropped the suit but this was something that Chyna was asked about while in court. As per reporters from Us Weekly, she noted that she did hold a gun up to Rob but denied that she put her finger on the trigger and claimed that it was only in a joking manner. She further asserted that she had attempted to get Rob’s attention while he was playing a video game by wrapping the cell phone cord around his neck in a playful way but noted that there was no struggle.
Accusing Rob Of No Help
Since that moment Chyna had kept out of the public eye but once again in March 2022, she made headlines after claiming that she gets no child support as a single mother. In a tweet that has since been deleted, she claimed that she had to give up 3 of her cars adding “my reasons… morals, beliefs, being a single mother, no support I’m a MAMA. Single no support child support.” Though once screenshots of them were shared by an Instagram page The Shade Room, Rob decided to publicly comment to defend himself. “I pay 37k a year for my daughter’s school. I handle every single medical expense. I pay for all her extracurricular activities. I have my daughter from Tuesday-Saturday. Why would i pay child support lol,” he wrote. Similarly, Tyga also commented under the post, writing: “I pay 40k a year for my son's school & he lives w me Mon- sat. Why would I pay child support lol.”
Starting The Trial
The court battle had officially begun on April 18th, at the LA County Superior Court. As per the media reports, Chyna’s attorney did not specify how much in damages she's seeking, and the Kardashians simply referred to the figure as “millions.” but later in the media, the sum was reported to have been $108 million. According to Insider, the Mail Online, and Metro — all of whom have obtained court documents — Chyna’s demands include $44 million for “past economic damage” and $64 million for “future economic damage.” She has claimed that her show’s cancellation caused her to miss out on attaining several lucrative deals, including reality TV appearances, club appearances, and social media posts.
No Bank Account And No Taxes?
During one of the hearings, Chyna was grilled hard on dates, contracts, and her history of violent entanglements. Along the way, she was cornered into acknowledging she hasn't filed taxes in three years. This came to light when documents were brought up that showed that Chyna's signature may have given the E! Network every right to end the show when and how it did, four episodes into shooting the second season. When she was confronted about them she said that she couldn’t remember seeing or signing them. The agreement paid Chyna a $100,000 kill fee upon the series' demise. The same agreement paid her a $370,000 flat fee for the four episodes that were shot and for any additional appearances on "KUWTK." When asked whether she had any bank accounts or recent tax statements to demonstrate her financial status, she commented that she did not have a personal bank account.
Threatened To Kill Kylie?
But with all of her claims, the Kardashians also had some of theirs. Such as Kris Jenner giving a bombshell testimony in court, claiming Rob Kardashian’s ex once threatened to kill Kylie Jenner. While on the stand, the momager testified that she was “alarmed” years ago when Kylie and then-boyfriend Tyga told her about the alleged threat. Kris added that Tyga told her on multiple occasions that Chyna allegedly tried to physically harm him with a knife.
“Of course it was alarming but we just kept it in the family”. She also added that they did not report the alleged incident to the police.
