Blac Chyna Cannot Keep Up With Rob Kardashian, Settles Revenge Porn Lawsuit Ahead of Court Date

It’s confirmed! Keeping up with the Kardashians has become impossible for Blac Chyna. The American model has finally settled the revenge porn lawsuit out of the court with Rob Kardashian. The news comes just as Kardashian was due to appear at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in LA. Read on to learn more about this ugly battle.

Blac Chyna Bites The Dust!

In an obvious move, Angela Renée White aka Blac Chyna settled the revenge porn lawsuit filed against her ex, Rob Kardashian out of court. The news came just as Rob Kardashian was due to appear in front of Judge Gregory Alarcon at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles. Jury selection was set for Monday (June 20), with a three to five-day trial expected to follow.

Chyna’s decision to make an out-of-court settlement with Rob comes after the 34-year-old socialite lost the  $140 million defamation suit against the Kardashians-Jenners (sans Kourtney and Kendall) after a two-week dramatic trial in May.  Chyna first initiated legal proceedings against Kardashian, who is the father to their daughter Dream Kardashian, in July 2017.

At the time, Kardashian posted sexually explicit photos of Chyna to his Instagram and Twitter, after which she requested a temporary restraining order. The charges were going to be included as part of Chyna’s defamation lawsuit against the Kardashian-Jenner family, but a judge severed the two claims during a 2020 hearing.

Kardashian’s lawyer Michael Rhodes HAS confirmed the settlement. However, Chyna’s lawyer Lynne Ciani did not immediately respond to requests. The settlement move comes even though a judge from the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County denied Kardashian’s previous motion last week to enforce a settlement over Chyna’s allegations.

About the Previous LA Verdict

Blac Chyna faced a massive defeat in the court against the Kardashians in May when the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” stars were chilling at the 2022 Met Gala in Manhattan. During the court hearing, Black Chyna’s mom, Tokyo Toni appeared to threaten the judge who tossed her out of the courtroom for thrashing Krish Jenner and her children.

Moreover, the jury sided with the Kardashians after listening to a series of testimonies from Kris, Khloe, Kim, Kylie and Rob. A strong testimony came a few days back from Corey Gamble who is the boyfriend of Kris Jenner. Corey testified before the LA court that he heard Blac Chyna threaten to kill Roby Kardashian multiple times, and said that he had to physically intervene to stop her in December 2016.

After a two-week dramatic trial between the Kardashians and Blac Chyna, the jury ultimately decided no damages to Black Chyna but did find Kris, Kim and Kylie acted to protect their economic interest. Moreover, the jury found out that Kris, Kim, Kylie and Khloe were aware that Chyna had a contract with the E! network but did not that their conduct prevented Chyna from persuing her contract.

During the trial of her 2017 lawsuit, the Kardashian-Jenners also requested the judge to dismiss Chyna’s lawsuit after one and half weeks of trial because she offered “no additional testimony or evidence to support her claim”. This was taken into consideration.

Michael Rhodes, who represented the Kardashians painted Blac Chyna as an “opportunist” who wanted to become a part of the famous family. In his opening statement, Kardashians’ lawyer said that “She wanted to be one of them.” 

The judge instructed the jurors that Blac Chyna might have deliberately hid her finances because she failed to provide any financial statements, tax returns and other documents about her income or expenses. FYI, she was given almost six years to file those documents.

As it was a civil case, 9 out of the 12 jurors were supposed to agree that Chyna proved her two claims of defamation and interference with her contract. But nothing like that happened as the judge played a vital role in urging the jury to consider significant evidence in this case and sided with the Kardashians.

Chyna Flips From Her Statements…

Last week, Chyna’s lawyer, Ciani stated,Chyna is very pleased that the trial judge denied Rob’s motion to ‘enforce’ a settlement that never existed. Without a settlement, Chyna will prove her case to a Los Angeles jury on June 20 that Rob posted devastating revenge porn of her to millions of his Instagram followers without her consent.”

After making such a strong public statement to prove their case, Chyna and her lawyer seem to have realised that they do not have enough evidence. Moreover, it appears that Chyna filed a lawsuit to fetch money from Rob Kardashian. On the other hand, if her claims were true, then she would have never settled out of court.

Not only this, but the socialite also stated, “Revenge porn is a very dangerous form of violence predominantly perpetrated against girls and women. Victims of revenge porn typically experience serious anxiety, shame, and helplessness.”

Chyna added, “Some revenge porn victims have committed suicide. Rob Kardashian has never taken responsibility for his heinous and vengeful act of posting revenge porn against Chyna in July 2017.  He was never criminally prosecuted. It is finally time for Rob to be held accountable in a court of law.”

Well, the explicit content included a photo of what Kardashian claimed was Chyna’s vagina, which she allegedly sent him in a text message after he requested it so that he could ejaculate “before I shower.” In his defense, Rob wrote:

“This is from Chyna yesterday to me. I have never been so disrespected in my life. I just bought her 250K of jewellery yesterday. This woman is so disrespectful and I don’t care.” Kardashian also posted a video that appeared to show Chyna in bed with another man. He wrote:

“Hahahaha Chyna just sent me this video saying happy 4th of July what a crazy person,” he commented. Come spend time with your daughter instead of f–king me and then this dude right after. U need help.”

Well, all her big words are in vain as she settles her revenge porn lawsuit with Rob Kardashian just before the court date. We do not know who is right and who is wrong, but the move to settle this revenge porn lawsuit which Chyna supposedly called “a dangerous form of violence”, speaks it all. What do you think?
