Blac Chyna will go head-to-head against the Kardashian family in court in 2020, her lawyer, Walter Mosley, announced on Monday.
“February 3, 2020 ... We’re going to court ... White v. Kardashian et al. #staytuned #blacchyna,” Mosely wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of him with Chyna, 30.
After Instagram users responded with negative comments, Mosley clapped back at one who had replied, “Shame in the both of u. Signed: Karma.”
“Just doing my job here. There is no shame in being a lawyer,” Mosley responded.
This prompted the user to try and further attack Mosley. “There are children involved,” the user wrote. “Shame on you for partaking in her mess. And making a scene of it all. Posting this on IG. Is for clout. So please miss me with your terrible lawyer talk.”
“You do realize Kylie and Rob sued Chyna first … refused to serve her through her lawyer and instead did a public serving to embarrass her," Mosley replied. "Just make sure you’re ‘keeping up'. This is just a counter suit … so let’s talk about the kids why don’t we.”
Another of Chyna’s lawyers, Lisa Bloom, also shared the news via a press release and tweet on Tuesday.
“Pleased that we now have a trial date and court orders in our favor in our case of Blac Chyna v. Kardashian/Jenner family members,” Bloom tweeted, directing readers to a press release for further details.
The release stated that Chyna will “have her day in court,” marking the first time that a jury will hear a case against the four members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, and that media personality, Ryan Seacrest (an executive producer on Rob & Chyna), is expected to be deposed in early 2019.
“The judge also granted Blac Chyna’s motions compelling the E! network and Bunim Murray Productions to produce documents relating to Season 2 of Rob & Chyna,” the release stated. “The court rejected E!’s argument that the documents were ‘trade secrets’ and ordered it to hand over the documents to Blac Chyna’s attorneys.”
During their time together, the couple starred in E! reality series, Rob & Chyna, and in October 2017, Blac filed a lawsuit against Rob, as well as Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, claiming they hurt her career by canceling the series.
ET Live spoke to Bloom on Tuesday, as she explained the case further.
“It was one of the most successful new shows of the year that year that the production company and company announced there was going to be a season two,” Bloom said. “And, of course financially it was very good for her. Then the Kardashians on their show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, were very open about the fact that they were joining together to kill the show because they didn’t like her.”

Why Rob Kardashian Allegedly Filed to Lower 20k Child Support to Blac Chyna
According to Chyna’s lawsuit, the Kardashian-Jenner family "became media predators, slut-shaming her on social media and killing her hit television show [Rob & Chyna]" as a form of "revenge" for leaving her relationship with Rob. The suit also alleged that Rob verbally and physically assaulted Blac.
Rob has denied the assault allegations and in December 2017, the Kardashian family's attorneys filed a demurrer, which challenged the basis of Blac's lawsuit and asked for a dismissal of her case.
Last month, Bloom claimed victory after writing on Twitter that the court had "rejected the Kardashian family's request to strike Chyna's entire lawsuit."
However, at the time the Kardashians' attorney, Shawn Holley, told ET that the reality television clan had “successfully chipped away at Ms. White’s outlandish claims since her lawsuit was filed, culminating in today’s hearing -- a hearing at which the Court invited counsel for the Kardashians to seek attorney fees against the Bloom Firm for their failure to support Ms. White’s spurious allegations with actual evidence."
During her interview with ET Live, Bloom reacted to Holley's comment by saying that evidence would be presented in court.
Meanwhile, a source recently told ET that Rob was turning his life around, and has made his health and Dream a priority while living at one of Kylie's houses.
