THE Kardashian family have slammed Blac Chyna’s claims that she was treated like a “unicorn black reality star” on her show with Rob Kardashian.
Blac’s attorney is claiming the 32-year-old’s race is the reason her E! reality show, Rob & Chyna, never got a second season.
In response, the Kardashian’s lawyer – Marty Singer – said: “This is a two-year-old lawsuit in which Chyna has changed her defense more times than we can count.
“Sadly, unsurprising to anyone, she has stooped to a new low, changing her defense to try to leverage the emotions and pain of the moment, insulting the pain and suffering of real victims of racial injustice and systemic racism.
“We take these allegations very seriously and once again, there is no ‘Rob & Chyna’ show if there is no Rob & Chyna.”
Rob & Chyna premiered in September 2016 and ran for one season. It was renewed but later canceled by the network.
It comes after Chyna’s attorney said in a statement to Page Six, that “had Chyna been a white reality TV star, rather than the ‘unicorn’ black reality TV star” then allegations made by matriarch Kris Jenner that Chyna had physically attacked Rob Kardashian “either never would have been made in the first place – or her false accusation would have been quickly investigated by E! and NBCUniversal and proven false.”
Jenner and three of her daughters – Kylie, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian – were accused by Chyna in 2017 of interfering with her show Rob & Chyna and working with producers to get the show canceled, which she has alleged caused her substantial damages.
A month earlier, Kylie and Rob sued Chyna for battery after alleging she tried to choke the father of her daughter Dream with a phone cord.
The statement from Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani read: “No one at NBCUniversal ever informed Chyna that Kris Jenner had secretly accused her of severely beating Rob.
“Next, without Chyna’s knowledge, Kris Jenner and three of her daughters (Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner) were able to convince E! executives that they needed to convene an emergency meeting to discuss the cancellation of Season 2 of Rob & Chyna based on the false accusation that Chyna had severely beaten Rob.
“NBCUniversal executives never invited Chyna, the allegedly violent cast member (and also an Executive Producer of Rob & Chyna), to the emergency meeting.
She went on to allege that NBC executives “never viewed the existing unaired Season 2 footage” which she claims “conclusively proves that Kris Jenner lied when she claimed that Chyna had ‘beat the [expletive] out of Rob’s face’.”
Ciana also added that the “executive-level decision-makers at the E! Network and NBCUniversal” – all of whom were white – “completely denied any due process to their black reality TV star regarding the fate of Season 2 of Rob & Chyna.”
New details of the alleged 2016 assault against Rob by then-girlfriend Chyna emerged earlier in 2020 and alleged that she was under the influence of cocaine and attacked him with a six-foot metal pole.
According to documents seen by The Blast, Rob claimed to have “believed that Chyna intended to inflict severe injury on him and feared for his life.”
The reality star, who is currently in the midst of a custody battle over Dream with Chyna, is said to claim: “Although Chyna did not drink or use drugs while she was pregnant with and breastfeeding Dream, as soon as she stopped breastfeeding dream in the second week of December 2016, she started drinking to excess and using cocaine again.”
On the day of the incident, Rob claims “Chyna participated in a photoshoot at the Hidden Hills house, along with photographers, a makeup artist, a hairstylist, Chyna’s friends, members of her entourage and others.”
He alleges that during the day, “Chyna consumed large amounts of Moet Rose champagne and snorted cocaine. As the day went on…he says she became “increasingly erratic, aggressive and violent behavior as she became more and more intoxicated.”
Ciani said at the time that there was “NO violent attack and that this is just another one of Rob’s lies.”
