Rob Kardashian's Ex Blac Chyna Loses Her $108 Million Defamation Case Against His Family

Rob Kardashian's Ex Blac Chyna Loses Her $108 Million Defamation Case Against His Family

Blac Chyna has lost the lawsuit she filed against the Kardashian family.

On Monday, 2 May, a jury ruled in favour of the Kardashian family in the lawsuit Blac Chyna launched against them.

Chyna, legal name Angela White, is the ex-fiancée of Rob Kardashian.

The model was suing Kris JennerKim KardashianKhloe Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner for $108 million in damages for defamation and interference accusations.

Now a jury has ruled in favour of the famous family after around 10 hours of deliberation.

Blac Chyna filed the lawsuit against the famous family in 2017.

Chyna launched the lawsuit back in 2017, claiming the family defamed her and interfered with contracts and business deals that resulted at the end of her reality TV career, following her split from Rob.

The model was filming her reality series Rob & Chyna, a spinoff of Keeping Up With The Kardashians when the second season was cancelled.

The case commenced at an LA court on 18 April, and on 29 April Kim secured a major win, with judge Gregory Alarcon dropping the defamation claim against the beauty mogul specifically.

Chyna's team attempted to argue that a series of text messages and emails from the family were defamatory, but none of the messages were from Kim.

This led Kardashian lawyer Michael Rhodes to request that the defamation claim against the Skims owner be dropped.

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian have a daughter together.

 "Because [Blac Chyna] has neither identified an allegedly defamatory statement by Kim Kardashian nor specified an instance where she ratified an allegedly defamatory statement by another party, the claim against her must be dismissed," legal documents obtained by PEOPLE state.

"[Blac Chyna's] vague assertion on the record during [her] argument that Kim Kardashian 'ratified those statements and encouraged her sisters to make them' — without specifying how Kim Kardashian ratified them and to whom — is woefully insufficient to maintain a claim," it adds.

"Additionally, statements by other Defendants cannot form the basis of a defamation claim against Kim Kardashian because neither her mother nor her sisters ever acted as her agent."

The jury ruled in favour of the Kardashian family.

While Rhodes was successful in having the defamation claim against Kim dropped, the jury still had to deliberate on other claims, including defamation accusations against Kris, Khloe, and Kylie as well as interference accusations.

As the jury deliberated, the famous family attended the Met Gala in New York.

Chyna appeared at the LA court for the verdict, where jurors found that the issues brought up in the case had no substantial impact on Chyna's spin-off show, as reported by the Independent.

The ruling brought an end to the five-year-old lawsuit, which included motions to dismiss and settlement talks between both sides.
