You have to give Blac Chyna credit: Not many people would stand up to the powerful Kardashian-Jenner family in court.
Blac Chyna–who began her career as a successful stripper becoming a model, reality star, and makeup entrepreneur–has been mixed up with the Kardashian-Jenners for years. And, judging by the Instagram snap above, she’s also trying to out-Kylie her rival.
But the lawsuit has nothing to do with stealing Kylie’s look. Chyna is suing Kris & Ko. for millions of dollars over a canceled reality show.
A little background on the messy relationship between Chyna and the Kardashian-Jenners. Back in 2011, she was in a relationship with rapper Tyga. They welcomed a son (King Cairo) in 2012, but the couple broke up when Tyga hooked up with a certain Kylie Jenner in 2014.
Chyna and Kylie hated each other and got into it repeatedly on social media. Then she met Rob Kardashian in 2016, and suddenly Chyna was dating Kylie’s half-brother.
If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, apparently.
Rob and Chyna had a baby girl named Dream in November 2016; a month later, he announced that they had broken up. After a brief attempt to reconcile, they split for good. Then Rob posted revenge nudes of his ex on social media.
Chyna was able to get a restraining order against Rob because of that little stunt. Last year, she filed a lawsuit against not just her ex but the entire family, accusing them of putting pressure on producers to cancel her reality show Rob & Chyna after just one season.
Now, you and I might argue that a reality show about a couple has no reason to continue once that couple has split.
We might also suggest that the Kardashians and Jenners need to stop handing an employee timesheet to everyone they hook up with because things always get messy with their exes.
But Chyna wasn’t about to let her 15 minutes of fame end that easily. Too bad she’s no match for Kris Jenner.
Kris hasn’t built a billion-dollar empire on the backs of her daughters by being nice. She’s not going to let Blac Chyna win.
Kris demanded a ton of documents from Chyna, including every text and email between her and Rob, as well as photos and videos. Essentially, Kris wants their entire relationship exposed during the discovery phase of the lawsuit.
That could be bad news for Chyna, who alleges that Rob was abusive and that his family instigated a coordinated campaign to take her down. Her side of the suit states:
“Rob Kardashian is an abuser intent on destroying Angela White [Blac Chyna’s real name], the mother of his baby, who left him in 2016. In revenge, the Kardashian-Jenner family became media predators, slut-shaming her on social media and killing her hit television show, which had already begun filming a second season.”
Kris fired back by demanding that Chyna “describe each occasion on which you have been arrested or publicly accused of assault, battery and/or any other acts of physical violence against other PERSONS from January 1, 2008 through the present.”
In other words, she’s calling Chyna out for being an abusive mess herself. Neither side seems willing to back down, and now Kris is insisting that Chyna failed to submit all the requested documents and filed her legal paperwork incorrectly.
Kris Jenner is savvy–and she was married to a famous lawyer. She knows how to work the system, and it seems like she’s hoping to get the multimillion-dollar suit against her family thrown out before it goes to trial.
