Blac Chyna’s civil suit against the Kardashians is ongoing in LA. It has only grown more intense in the past couple of days. News coming from the courtroom continues to dominate headlines. Now, a defiant Blac has asserted her reason for suing the Kardashian-Jenners.
After a full day testifying in a Los Angeles court Wednesday, Chyna faced a confrontational from Michael Rhode, the veteran attorney representing Kim and Khloé Kardashian and Kris and Kylie Jenner. Rhode grilled the former model about her reasons for filing the multimillion dollar lawsuit.
Page Six reported that when Rhodes asked Chyna if she sued the family for a “publicity stunt,” the model quickly responded, “No, not at all.” Rhodes then said in a loud voice. “You can benefit from this,” a visibly frustrated Chyna responded, “No, not at all. That’s why I want a fair trial. This is why I’m doing this right now.”
Chyna continued, “[The relationship] stopped when Kylie started dating Tyga, my fiancé at the time,” During cross-examination, Rhodes asked, “Do you have a grudge against Kylie Jenner? She took your boyfriend!” Chyna sighed at the question and replied, “I have no ill will against none of the ladies, actually.”
Chyna is suing the iconic family for more than $100 million in damages for defamation and interfering with her contract. She claimed the Kardashians conspired to cause the cancellation of the “Rob & Chyna” show after one successful season.
During Rhodes’ opening statement on Tuesday, he said network executives with E! and NBCUniversal decided to pull the plug on the show because the relationship between Rob and Chyna became too toxic, and they had already separated. Meanwhile, during Chyna’s six-hour testimony, she admitted that her connection with the Kardashian-Jenner family was complicated.
Chyna’s ex Tyga started dating Kylie Jenner in 2014, and two years later, she was engaged to Rob Kardashian. To say it was complicated would be an understatement. Chyna said during her testimony, there was “a lot of cheating” on Tyga’s part, which caused the breakup.
