Blac Chyna And Rob Kardashian Reach Revenge Porn Settlement Just Hours Before Trial

Blac Chyna And Rob Kardashian Reach Revenge Porn Settlement Just Hours Before Trial

The eleventh-hour settlement was made hours before the revenge porn trial over 2017 allegations was due to begin

A settlement has been reached in Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s revenge porn case. 

The announcement was made today (20 June), just hours before the California trial between the rapper, 34, and the reality TV star, 35, was due to begin. 

A court clerk informed Page Six that the exes had come to an agreement, though the terms are currently unclear.

The announcement means that the trial between the exes, who share a daughter, Dream, will no longer take place.

At this time, it’s not known what the terms of the out-of-court settlement are.

Kardashian was accused of sharing intimate images and videos of Chyna without consent online back in 2017. 

The reality TV star previously said that he did not want the case to go to court for the sake of the couple’s five-year-old daughter, the Mirror reports. 

Kardashian’s attorney said: "He doesn't want in five/ten years his daughter to read about a fight between his parents that is going to involve sexually explicit images."

However, the rapper hit back at this claim and said that she wanted to set a good example for her daughter by taking Kardashian to court. 

She said through her lawyer: "There is a small daughter involved here. In fact, that’s why plaintiff is moving forward with this case. She wants her daughter to know that it’s not OK to have nude photos posted against your will, no matter who that person is."

Kardashian and Chyna had a famously turbulent relationship. They went Instagram official in early 2016 before breaking up, then announcing their pregnancy and engagement before breaking up again.

While they had reconciled by the time of Dream's birth in November 2016, it wasn't to last and their well-publicised legal troubles began the following year.

Today's announcement is not the first time that they have settled out of court.

The former couple also reached an out-of-court settlement earlier this year when Kardashian accused Chyna of assault.

According to Page Six, he decided to 'dismiss his assault lawsuit against Blac Chyna without prejudice for the sake of their daughter'.

The 35-year-old said at the time: "My love for Dream far outweighs my desire to proceed with my claims against her mother in a public trial.

"Now that the court has ruled that there is sufficient evidence to warrant a jury trial on my claim for assault, for our daughter's sake, I am dismissing the action and focusing on my co-parenting relationship with Chyna."
