Blac Chyna’s attorneys revealed that they’re going to appeal their case after the 33-year-old model lost in her lawsuit against the Kardashian family on Monday, May 2. One of the points that the lawyer Lynne Ciani highlighted was that the jury ruled that Chyna had not been physically abusive towards her ex Rob Kardashian, 35, even if they didn’t rule that Kim and Khloe Kardashian as well as Kylie and Kris Jenner had defamed her.
In a statement, received by HollywoodLife, Lynne pointed to verdicts reached by the jury that statements by Kris and Kylie Jenner about statements regarding alleged abuse from Chyna towards Rob were found to be “not true or substantially true.” The statement also pointed to verdicts that the Kardashians had interfered with Chyna’s contracts. “The jury reached a verdict that ALL 4 defendants — Kris, Kim, Khloe, and Kylie — did not act reasonably and in good faith to protect their own economic interests in the Rob & Chyna show,” the statement said in part. ” The jury reached a verdict that the actions of ALL 4 defendants — Kris, Kim, Khloe, and Kylie — were not justified with respect to Angela White’s (Blac Chyna’s) contractual relationship with E! Network.”
The lawsuit had claimed that the Kardashians had defamed Chyna and interfered with E! to get her show Rob And Chyna canceled. Kim had been cleared of the defamation claims on Friday before the final verdict came in. The Kardashians’ lawyer Michael Rhodes thanked the jury for the verdict. “We are also grateful for the steady hand of Judge Alarcon in making sure that this was a fair trial. The jury sent a clear message to Ms. White and her lawyer — I hope they are listening. Justice has prevailed,” he said in a statement, received by HollywoodLife.
After the verdict came in, the Kardashians all attended the Met Gala in New York City and celebrated the win. Kris seemed glad to put the trial behind her in a brief red carpet interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I’m just glad it’s over,” she said.
The trial was filled with bombshell testimonies from so many members of the Kardashian family, including Rob alleging that Chyna had “strangled” him with a phone cord and “put a gun to [his] head,” while she was drinking and on cocaine.
