A brief look into Blac Chyna’s relationship with the Kardashian-Jenners

After Rob and Chyna premiered, the show reached massive success. Viewers tuned in to see Chyna and Rob’s life together, as well as Rob, becoming a parent for the first time. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s network picked it up for another season. However, Season 2 of the series never aired on E! In December 2016, Chyna called off their engagement. Following their split, Rob and Chyna stopped production.

Why Blac Chyna sued the Kardashian-Jenners

In October 2017, Chyna decided to take legal action against the Kardashian-Jenner family. She sued Rob, his mother, Kris Jenner, sisters Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, and Kylie. According to Us Weekly, Chyna claimed that the family used their “power and influence over the E! network to kill the second season” of Rob and Chyna. The Real Blac Chyna star also claimed the tribe “permanently damaged” her career by allegedly ending the show.

Additionally, Chyna’s former attorney, Lisa Bloom, claimed the family attempted to get Chyna to drop the lawsuit in November 2018. 

“For over a year, Blac Chyna has been fighting to get her day in court against Robert Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner,” Bloom 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.”

According to Rob’s attorney, Marty Singer, the Arthur George founder opted not to dispute. Chyna is currently suing Kardashian after he released nude pictures of her on Instagram in 2017. 

“We have not filed an opposition to the court for this request because the footage has no impact on the case,” Singer said in a statement. “However, we have requested Blac Chyna’s OnlyFans footage, and she has refused to release that footage to us.”
