Blac Chyna's 13-month-old lawsuit against her ex Rob Kardashian as well as his mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner, will be moving forward in January, her attorney Lisa Bloom announced Wednesday.
“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,” the attorney said. “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 the Kardashians' lawyer shared with ET: "The Bloom Firm’s tweet is not an accurate statement of what happened in court today. In fact, the Kardashians have successfully chipped away at Ms. White’s outlandish claims since her lawsuit was filed, culminating in today’s hearing —a hearing at which the Court invited counsel for the Kardashians to seek attorney fees against the Bloom Firm for their failure to support Ms. White’s spurious allegations with actual evidence."
ICYMI, Chyna is seeking unspecified damages following a much-publicized July 2017 incident in which Rob posted nude pictures of her on social media. She also accuses Rob of verbal and physical abuse and blames the entire family for sabotaging what was supposed to be a second season of the E! series Rob and Chyna.
Last month, Rob filed to reduce child support payments to Chyna for their daughter, Dream Kardashian, 2, due to lost income, which prompted Bloom to lash out, telling Page Six he has "deliberately retreated from social media to reduce his income so that he can pay less child support.”
“Poor little rich boy. What kind of father doesn’t want to support his own baby?” she asked rhetorically. “Rob and Kris Jenner have also been dodging their depositions. They can run, but they can’t hide. Like all other litigants and witnesses, eventually, they will have to show up and answer questions about where all of Rob’s money has gone. We’ll get a court order requiring them to come to my office and answer questions under oath if necessary.”
The child support modification request is apparently due to be heard in court in December.
