Blac Chyna reveals staggering salary she was to be paid for spinoff show with Rob Kardashian
Court documents reveal that Chyna was going to make $92,500 per episode from the second season of the now-on-hold reality show
Blac Chyna and the Kardashians are fighting a legal battle over the cancellation of her spin-off show with former fiance Rob Kardashian. Court documents obtained by Radar Online reveal that Chyna was going to make $92,500 per episode from the second season of the now-on-hold reality show.
The 33-year-old socialite is suing the Kardashians for $300 million. While she is suing Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner for allegedly causing the cancellation of the show, she is also suing Rob for posting explicit photos of her online without consent. As per reports, the Kardashians are trying to block Chyna from showing the jury certain documents and testimony.
Chyna believes that the alleged lies the Kardashians spread about her abusing Rob led to the executives canceling her show, 'Rob & Chyna.' The famous family asserted that Chyna should not be allowed to testify about her beliefs or understanding of her contractual rights under agreements with the E! Network. Radar Online reports that they want her barred from testifying about her understanding of the contract and speaking on "the effects of Defendants' alleged actions on her brand and reputation."
Chyna's attorney Lynne Ciani says the former was guaranteed $92k per episode for 8 episodes. "[Chyna] is fully competent to testify about the terms of the contract, i.e. her Talent Agreement with NBCUniversal, of which she is personally aware, including the episodic rate of $92,500, that after Season 2 was approved by NBCUniversal she was guaranteed payment for eight episodes, and that she never signed or authorized an amendment to her Talent Agreement," her motion reads.
Breakdown of the $300M
The documents break down the $300 million+ Chyna believes she's owed. $100 million+ is owed to her in economic damages, $44 million in past economic damages, and another $64 million for future economic damages. The past damages include $7.8 million for 2 seasons per year of 'Rob & Chyna', $5 million in lost income from club appearances, and $31 million in lost social media income. Her future economic damages include $11 million lost on television appearances, $7 million from club appearances, and $46 million in social media posts.
Chyna states that the Kardashians threatened to stop shooting their popular reality show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' unless 'Rob & Chyna' was canceled. According to previously obtained documents by Radar Online, the Kardashian clan has filed a motion demanding that "any conversation or evidence regarding their wealth or financial condition should be banned from the jury trial."
The statement says, "While it is widely known that Defendants have achieved financial success through various and divergent business endeavors, it is nevertheless true that allowing to refer to Defendants as 'billionaires' or to reference their wealth in more general terms would tend to inflame the passions of the jury and confuse the issues." The trial will take place on April 15.
