Blac Chyna's Lawsuit Against Rob Kardashian Reaches An Unexpected Conclusion

The legal battle between Blac Chyna and the Kardashian-Jenner family was a pretty messy affair, with the model alleging that the family conspired to terminate her reality TV deal due to the dissolution of her relationship with Rob Kardashian. Chyna (birth name Angela White) was seeking $100 million in damages, but in May, she lost in court after almost every member of the Kar-Jen fam-jam testified in their defense, including Kim Kardashian, Kendall, Kyle, and Kris Jenner, per Variety. Since then, the stars of "The Kardashians" have made a huge demand — they want Chyna to fork over almost $400K in legal costs, per TMZ

But that hasn't signaled the end of Chyna's legal battles with the most famous family in America, and in fact, this next legal battle against her ex-partner Rob, who is father to their daughter Dream, has been going on since 2017. Back then, Chyna was granted a restraining order against Rob for what she called "revenge porn" when he leaked nude photos of her without her consent in a series of social media posts, per The Washington Post. Chyna's attorney Lisa Bloom told the outlet at the time, where the judge issued the order prohibiting Rob from contacting Chyna, that, "Revenge porn is a form of domestic abuse, it is also a crime in California and 38 other states, and it is a civil wrong."

On June 6, Rob insisted he and his ex had settled the revenge porn case privately, but Chyna pushed for a trial, per TMZ. However, things have suddenly come to a grinding halt.

Rob and Blac Chyna eek out a deal mere hours before their trial

On June 17, Blac Chyna got her wish to go to trial against former partner and "Rob & Chyna" co-star Rob Kardashian in their ongoing revenge porn battle. A judge agreed with Chyna that, despite Rob's claims, they had not settled the dispute, per People. But now, just a few days later, it has all come to an unexpected end. 

TMZ reports that on June 20, mere hours before the trial was set to begin, jurors were informed they were no longer needed and were sent home because the ex-partners and parents to 5-year-old Dream had reached a settlement. There are no details at press time of the terms of the settlement. If there is monetary compensation involved, those details have not been made public yet. However, Rob's attorney Michael Rhodes has confirmed a settlement was reached to People

Back in 2017, People reported on the court documents, where Chyna alleged that when Rob leaked nude photos of her on social media, it caused her "significant damages" to her career and public reputation. He pushed back on that allegation, saying that she "did not suffer any injury or harm as a result of any conduct" on his part. TMZ has reported that in her initial filing, she was seeking damages from Rob that was rumored to be seven figures.
