Blac Chyna goes to war with Kylie Jenner for profits from reality show claiming she 'interfered' with her series
In her latest move against the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Chyna is suing Kylie for interfering with her reality TV show on E!
The relationship between Blac Chyna and the Kardashian-Jenner clan has been icy since her spectacular fallout with beau Robert Kardashian in February 2017. After the latter posted sexually explicit photos of Chyna on social media, she even obtained a temporary restraining order against the Kardashian.
Since then, the model and entrepreneur has filed a lawsuit against Rob, momager Kris, as well as sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian, with Kylie being the latest member of the family she plans to drag to court. Keeping in line with the narrative in the previous lawsuit, which claims that the family interfered in her status as an E! reality star, this one practically states the same.
She alleges that Kylie's reality show, 'Life of Kylie,' took up the slot that her own show with Rob, 'Rob & Chyna,' was supposed to be allotted. In court documents obtained by The Blast, her lawyers argue: "The money paid to defendants for their services on Life of Kylie was acquired through the unlawful means of intentionally interfering with her contract for a second season of 'Rob & Chyna.'"
The bigger lawsuit, the one filed against the family in October 2017, still remains to be resolved and parrots a similar allegation: that the Kardashian-Jenner clan colluded to destroy her reality TV career by sabotaging the planned second season of 'Rob & Chyna' with E! executives. Chyna had recently also said that even Rob, with whom she has a daughter, Dream, had asked for the show not to be canceled.
The documents claim that the second season began filming in early 2017 and that "Reality television thrives on colorful personalities engaging in conflict. If anything, the E! network saw more potential in a second season given the success of season one and the new, unpredictable co-parenting relationship between Chyna and Rob."
In their defense, the Kardashians stress that Chyna's restraining order against Rob would have made the filming for the touted second season all but impossible.
Chyna going after Kylie should not come as a surprise to many. The pair famously fell apart in 2014 after Kylie reportedly began a relationship with Chyna's baby daddy, Tyga, and then sparred with one another on social media with thinly veiled jabs and insults. Though Chyna did mend her relationship with the Kardashians after, the peace was short-lived.
