Blac Chyna loses defamation case against Kardashian-Jenners

Blac Chyna, the influencer, model, and former fiancée of Rob Kardashian, filed a defamation suit against the Kardashian-Jenners, which they won. Chyna alleged that the TV reality stars wrecked her career by persuading network executives to cancel her show, Rob & Chyna.

However, the famous family emerged triumphant from the dispute, valued at an estimated $100 million (£79.9 million), with no damages granted.

A jury decided that while none of them had defamed Chyna, they had acted in “poor faith.”

During the nine-day trial, the four defendants—Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner—all took the stand.

Rob & Chyna was a one-season show on the E! network in 2016 that followed the couple as they prepared for the birth of their daughter.

Chyna said the show was banned because Rob Kardashian’s family falsely told TV executives she had physically attacked him during a 10-day trial at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse.

According to jurors, the Kardashian-Jenners were not justified in notifying the producers of Rob & Chyna that Chyna harmed their son and her boyfriend, Rob.

However, they determined that it had no significant impact on Chyna’s contract or the show’s cancellation, so no damages were given.

According to executives from the E! network, which aired the show, Rob and Chyna ended because of the relationship, not because of any action taken by the Kardashian-Jenners.

Kim’s current boyfriend, comedian Pete Davidson, who recently divorced rapper Kanye West, was also in attendance at the trial.

Members of the Kardashian-Jenner family stepped out on the red carpet at the Met Gala in New York on Sunday to celebrate their win.
