Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian's relationship drama led the Kardashian family to discuss the possibility of ending Keeping Up with the Kardashians, according to emails newly released in court.
Chyna filed a lawsuit against Rob Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner in 2017 that is going to drag out in court for a few more years, all involved parties found out during a Monday hearing, when a judge ordered a February 3, 2020 court date for Blac Chyna's defamation case to continue.
Monday's proceedings made public the content of 2016 emails written by Kylie and Khloe describing their discomfort with Rob & Chyna — and even Keeping Up with the Kardashians — continuing to film because of the former couple's drama.
“I feel very strongly about canceling Season 2 for Rob & Chyna,” Kylie wrote in an email obtained by Us Weekly. “The only reason Chyna wants to be with my brother is for this show. She does not love Rob and their relationship is too fake and destructive.”
"The sisters are clearly concerned and uncomfortable for our brother's safety and the credibility of the brand at this point due to how they [Rob and Chyna] are both tarnishing it," Khloe added in another email. "We are even considering not moving forward with our show if theirs continues. That’s how strongly we feel this is damaging to our family."
“For over a year, Blac Chyna has been fighting to get her day in court against Robert Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner,” her attorney Lisa Bloom said in a statement in November. “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. Today the court REJECTED the Kardashian family’s request to strike Chyna’s entire lawsuit. Most importantly, all of Chyna’s legal claims stay in. Chyna will therefore be permitted to have her day in court.”
Meanwhile, Rob and Chyna were expected in court this week to continue their child support battle but have reportedly paused the proceedings in hopes that they can settle out of court or, at least, enjoy Christmas. May we suggest some Arthur George "It's Lit" and "Sleigh All Day" socks for last-minute stocking stuffers?
