Blac Chyna says daughter Dream suffered multiple burns while in Rob Kardashian’s care as custody battle intensifies
The custody battle between the former couple has intensified as Chyna's attorney in a statement has accused Rob Kardashian's nanny of grave neglect on two accounts
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are involved in a fresh mud-slinging battle where both of them have blamed each other for negligence towards their daughter Dream Kardashian's safety. It started on Wednesday when in a detailed statement to a media outlet, Chyna's attorney alleged that Dream suffered burns on her legs on two separate occasions - in the month of February and March while in Rob's custody. The incidents took place while Dream was in the care of a nanny, a claim which is now being dismissed by Rob Kardashian.
“In late February, Dream returned to Chyna’s home after visiting her father, Rob Kardashian, with a first-degree burn on her leg. Rob admitted that Dream had received the severe burn at his home and promised it would never happen again. Chyna immediately sought out and obtained appropriate medical treatment for Dream’s burn,” the statement begins.
Chyna claimed that Dream returned from Rob's house post visitation with another fresh burn “very near the first burn on her leg.”
The attorney also claimed that Rob denied the second burn happening at his house but then quickly to changed his story. “Rob then changed his story and had his nanny send a text message admitting that Dream received the second burn at Rob’s house from a hot lightbulb,” the statement continues. “Chyna again sought medical care for Dream and learned that the most recent burn on her leg was a second-degree burn.”
Chyna and Rob have been embroiled in a custody battle for Dream and in the light of alleged incidents, Chyna has requested a police investigation into the matter. “To protect her daughter’s physical and emotional well-being, Chyna contacted the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and the police to request an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Dream’s second-degree burn. Any responsible parent would do the same,” the statement continues.
“Chyna has since learned that the nanny who was allegedly watching Dream when she was burned both times will no longer work for Rob,” the statement reads and for now Chyna is requesting the rights to approve Kardashian's next hire.
“While that development is a good start, Chyna will do everything within her power to ensure Dream’s safety during her visitations with her father,” asserted Chyna's attorney in the statement. “At a minimum, this will include Chyna’s approval of Rob’s new nanny. Chyna still wants her daughter to be allowed visitations with her father. However, she also, of course, wants to ensure that Dream is never burned again (or injured by other neglectful conduct) while visiting her father,” the statement says.
Responding to Chyna's claim, Rob Kardashian's attorney, Marty Singer, issued a statement to the same media outlet in an attempt to further explain the alleged incidents.
“First and foremost, the health, safety and well-being of Dream is and has always been Rob’s top priority. Rob’s current nanny of the last two years has a high-risk pregnancy and in the process of leaving his employment at will. Unfortunately Dream has had two accidents in the last month while with this nanny,” the statement from Singer begins. “Rob treated Dream appropriately and Chyna was informed. Following an investigation by the DCFS and the police, in which Rob fully cooperated, he has every reason to believe that there will be no findings of any safety issues in his home,” the statement reads.
“It should be noted that on multiple occasions, third parties have called on DCFS to visit Chyna’s home for treatment of Dream and within the last month, Dream has arrived to Rob from Chyna with many unexplained injuries including rashes, cuts, bruises and a dislocated arm. Just this past Saturday while Chyna was claiming that she was so concerned about Dream’s safety, Chyna posted a video on Instagram depicting 3-year-old Dream on her 7-year-old brother’s back while he was jumping on a trampoline.” the statement alleges.
Singer's statement continues, “It is unfortunate that Chyna feels the need to publicly miscommunicate the situation and has once again wasted valuable public resources by calling first responders in a desperate attempt to smear Rob’s name in response to his ongoing lawsuit against her for full custody of their daughter.”
“In his ongoing lawsuit for full custody of Dream, Rob has had grave concerns about his daughter’s safety in Chyna’s care, and is grateful for the brave witnesses who have come forward to testify regarding the danger which Chyna presents their daughter in her home. His motion was set to be heard yesterday March 24 but will be moved due to the Coronavirus pandemic. He eagerly awaits the opportunity to present the available evidence at the earliest opportunity,” the statement concludes.
In January this year, Rob had filed for primary custody of Dream claiming that Chyna was out of control. However, the court had denied the request last month.
A Los Angeles judge had also rejected Kardashian’s emergency motion after finding no emergency with Chyna and the situation, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
