Kris Jenner, Kim and Rob Kardashian Respond to Blac Chyna's Lawsuit Against Family
By Liz Calvario
Rob Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian West have asked a judge to dismiss Blac Chyna's lawsuit claiming that they are responsible for E! not renewing Rob & Chyna for a second season.
According to documents obtained by ET, the trio filed a "demurrer" on Dec. 21, which pleads for dismissal of the suit by noting that, even if the facts alleged in the suit were true, the suit has no legal basis. The family claims that Chyna's arguments that they painted her in a "false light" or that they have committed libel are untrue, adding that they have not published any false statements about Chyna that were defamatory.
In Chyna's original lawsuit filed in October, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, along with Kylie and Kendall Jenner, were also listed as defendants. The four sisters were then removed from Chyna's lawsuit in November, but Kim, Rob and Kris remained. According to those docs, the suit claimed that the "Kardashian-Jenner family became media predators, slut-shaming [Chyna] on social media and killing her hit television show, "as a form of "revenge" for leaving Rob.
In Kim, Rob and Kris' response, they claim that they have the right "to express opinions about situations involving their loved ones. That is all Defendants are alleged to have done here, and it is simply not actionable conduct," adding that Kim and Kris' opinions aren't an interference with any contract or reason for Chyna's "lost economic advantage."
They also point to Chyna’s restraining order against Rob as a reason that season two did not take place, arguing that because Chyna requested -- and was granted -- the restraining order, Rob was ordered to stay away from her.
"No trier of fact could possibly find that it was reasonably probable that a second season of Rob & Chyna would have been picked up and filmed," reads the document.
Rob and Chyna are parents to 1-year-old daughter Dream. The former couple separated in December 2016. Following their rocky separation, Rob shared nude photos of his ex on Instagram in July 2017, leading her to file a restraining order against him and accused him of domestic violence. She later agreed to drop the domestic abuse hearing from the court calendar and reached a custody agreement.
