Kris Jenner testified about being told of death threats made by Blac Chyna against her daughter, Kylie Jenner, during an ongoing trial involving the Kardashian family.
Chyna, whose real name is Angela White, was previously in a relationship with Kris's son, Rob Kardashian, and together they had a reality show, Rob & Chyna, as a spin-off of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
During questioning from Chyna's attorney Lynne Ciani, Kris was asked whether Chyna had ever threatened to kill Kylie, to which Kris initially said she did not recall. The lawyer then pointed to Kris's earlier deposition in which she had alleged hearing of the death threats.
The mother told the court she was told about the threat by Kylie and her then-boyfriend Tyga, who is also Chyna's ex-fiancé.
"That basically was what Kylie and Tyga told me. Kylie was dating Tyga at the time – I believe that’s where this aggression was coming from," Kris said.
Ciani asked whether Kris had ever sought to talk about the alleged threat with Chyna, who she knew at the time through her friendship with Kim Kardashian, but Kris said she had not. She agreed the threat was 'of course' alarming, but said they 'just kept it internal within the family'.
The previous day, the Kardashians' attorney Michael Rhodes asked Chyna if she had a 'grudge against Kylie Jenner', to which Chyna responded: "No, not at all."
When asked how many times Chyna allegedly threatened her daughter, Kris told Ciani she would 'have to ask Kylie'.
"I probably thought it was just some drama, which I'm used to," she added.
Despite the allegation, Kris said she wasn't concerned when Chyna started dating Rob, saying: "I love second chances, and I wanted them to win. I just wanted my son to be happy."
The lawyer also called attention yesterday to a previous testimony given during a 2019 deposition, in which Kris said Tyga had told her about Chyna allegedly physically abusing him during their relationship. Kris claimed Tyga had told her Chyna 'fought with him a lot' and one time cut his arm with a knife, though stressed 'this is secondhand information', Buzzfeed News reports.
Chyna filed her defamation lawsuit against the Kardashians in 2017 after Rob & Chyna was cancelled in the midst of filming its second season.
