Blac Chyna's Request to Trademark Kardashian Name Has Reportedly Been Denied

She won't be able to own the name Angela Kardashian, reports say.

Though the official status of Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian's relationship still remains a mystery, if she does ever become Mrs. Kardashian one day, it appears that she won't be able to put a trademark on that name, after all. 

Chyna's (nee Angela Renée White) petition to trademark the name, Angela Renée Kardashian, has been successfully blocked by the Kardashian family, according to TMZ. Lawyers for Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian opposed the trademark, claiming that their companies would “suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill," and Chyna is “deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity,” according to court documents filed in December, as reported by PEOPLE.

Chyna's lawyer, Walter Mosley, told PEOPLE last December that of the "many trademarks" he's filed for her, "this is the first one that's ever been opposed." “I have to respond to the notice of opposition, so the way this works is we filed the mark, it was initially unopposed, it was published and then the representatives of the sisters’ companies filed an opposition to Angela owning her name," he explained to PEOPLE. "Sure, it’s not her legal name now, but it is certainly her stage name — her next stage name and her legal name once the wedding is done. In the complaint they are not short or shy as to how they feel about Angela using the trademark. I’m hoping that it’s just a big misunderstanding but I’m just proceeding as if it’s not and am going to do the best work I can for my client.” 

It's unclear if Rob and Chyna will ever tie the knot and give Chyna the opportunity to become Angela Kardashian legally, at least. The couple had reportedly broken off their engagement in February, but they were recently seen packing on the PDA on Snapchat, according to PEOPLE
