The ex-fiancee of Rob Kardashian, Blac Chyna, is heading to trial with the Kardashian and Jenner family, one year after she filed a lawsuit over claims they damaged her career. She claimed that they canceled her hit TV series, Rob & Chyna, with her ex-fiance Rob Kardashian.
Her attorney, Lisa Bloom announced this on Wednesday. She divulges:
‘For over a year, Blac Chyna has been fighting to get her day in court against Robert Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner,’ Chyna’s lawyer ‘Chyna alleges that she was slut-shamed, defamed and the victim of a plot to kill her hit show, Rob & Chyna, causing her significant financial damages.’
Bloom also asserted that the Kardashian family has tried to avoid going to trial.
‘The Kardashian family has filed numerous motions with the court, seeking to have the case thrown out so that Chyna would not get to present her case at trial,’ she said.
‘As her attorneys, we have fought these motions every step of the way, and the case has remained alive.’
‘Today the court rejected the Kardashian family’s request to strike Chyna’s entire lawsuit,’ she added.
‘Instead, the court struck only portions of six paragraphs out of a 317-paragraph complaint,’ it was added.
‘Most importantly, all of Chyna’s legal claims stay in. Chyna will therefore be permitted to have her day in court.’
It was also shared that Chyna and her team ‘look forward to getting a trial date next month.’
According to her, Chyna alleged that Kris, Kim, Khloé, and Kylie published defamatory things about her and kept the second season of Rob & Chyna from getting made. The next court date for the case is set for Monday, January 7.
The court documents submitted by Chyna claim that the second season of the show began filming in early 2017, despite the paperwork having not been finished.
The lawsuit states: ‘Reality television thrives on colorful personalities engaging in conflict. If anything, the E! network saw more potential in a second season given the success of season one and the new, unpredictable co-parenting relationship between Chyna and Rob.’
