AceShowbiz - More details about legal battle between Blac Chyna and the Kardashian-Jenner family are here. In court on Tuesday, April 19, the model claimed that the famous clan used their influence to cancel her short-lived E! series "Rob & Chyna". However, the family refuted the allegations.
In the second day of trial at the Los Angeles Superior Court, Chyna's attorney, Lynne Ciani, accused Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner of conspiring to cancel "Rob & Chyna" after its first season. Ciani also claimed that they tried to cover it up.
"Chyna wanted to bring the 'real' back into reality TV and a real relationship has its ups and downs," Ciani argued. "Kris Jenner falsely told them [network executives and production] that Chyna beat the s**t out of Rob's face and asked to take her off the show."
The lawyer noted that the flashpoint occurred on December 14, 2016, after Rob Kardashian and Chyna got into a heated argument at Kylie's house. According to the lawyer, the then-couple initially planned to celebrate news that their show got picked up for a second season. However, things quickly went south after Rob went through Chyna's phone and accused her of cheating on him.
During the ugly fight, Chyna admitted that she damaged a TV, two gingerbread houses and a door. The reality TV star, however, denied attacking Rob with a six-foot metal pole as his family alleged. Ciani also added that unaired footage from "Rob & Chyna" will provide evidence that Rob never had any bruises or injuries to his face.
Following the altercation, Ciani said that the Kardashian-Jenners began their plan to sabotage the show. According to her, Kris messaged E! network and Bunim/Murray producers the following day in which she called Chyna "stupid" and "really ghetto," and suggesting they should "ditch the b***h."
The other Kardashian-Jenner family members were also said to be actively trying to make E! cancel the show. Ciani claimed Kris, Kim, Kylie and Khloe emailed network executives numerous times to push the cancellation of sophomore season of "Rob & Chyna" with Kylie agreeing to film "Life of Kylie" to replace the show.
The Kardashian-Jenner family, however, denied the claims. Through their legal team, the family alleged that they were trying to protect Rob from an abusive relationship he had with the video vixen. The family's lawyer Michael Rhodes argued in his opening statement that Chyna became violent with Rob that night. She allegedly pulled a gun on his head and placed an iPhone cord around his neck. At one point, Kris' boyfriend Corey Gamble went to the house to separate the two.
Rhodes added that the network was still considering to salvage the show but eventually decided to cancel it because Rob and Chyna's relationship grew too toxic. "[Chyna] said we killed the show because we are bad people … but look at what's going on behind the camera," Rhodes said to the jurors. "The family was on board with what was proposed … if they could work on their relationship. But it couldn't get fixed."
He then showed the jurors various texts from Chyna to Rob. "Chyna claimed she was punched and thrown to the ground. The evidence will show you that this relationship was fraught with problems," he said. "The network was worried, but there were others, too, who were worried … a mother, a sister, and aunt. The truth they were worried about came true. This is a sad story because look where we are now."
