Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and Rob Kardashian have challenged Blac Chyna's lawsuit against them and asked the judge to dismiss the case.
Blac Chyna's Lawsuit
In October, Chyna, who is Rob's ex and the mother of their 1-year-old daughter, Dream Kardashian, filed a lawsuit against him, Kris, and Kim, claiming that they were the reason behind the cancelation of her E! reality series, Rob & Chyna.
In the lawsuit, Chyna, whose real name is Angela Renée White, alleged that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars defamed her, interfered with contractual relations, and intentionally sought to get the show canceled.
"The famous family was flexing their muscles so as to destroy Ms. White's career so that she was no longer able to compete against the Kardashian-Jenner women as an entrepreneur and social media influencer," the lawsuit claimed.
The suit was originally filed against Kris, Rob, Kim, as well as Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner but was later amended and included only Kris, Rob, and Kim's names.
The Kardashians Respond
Rob, mother Kris, and sister Kim's attorneys have now responded to Chyna's lawsuit by filing legal papers challenging the suit and asking the judge's dismissal of the same.
As per court documents filed on Dec. 21, the Kardashian family claims that Chyna herself should be held accountable for the cancelation of Rob & Chyna. They alleged that the show could not go ahead with filming after Chyna obtained a restraining order against the Arthur George socks designer in July.
The order, which Chyna sought after he posted explicit video and images of Chyna on social media, prohibited Rob from contacting Chyna, and one of the conditions of the order also required him to maintain distance from her home and workplace.
At the time of obtaining the restraining order, Chyna also accused Rob of being physically abusive toward her and cited an incident where Rob punched her in the side and knocked her to the ground.
"Given Plaintiff's conduct in seeking and obtaining a restraining order that required Rob to stay away from Plaintiff and her workplace, no trier of fact could possibly find that it was reasonably probable that a second season of Rob & Chyna would have been picked up and filmed," the filing read.
The document also noted that Kris and Kim, who served as executive producers on Rob & Chyna, have a court hearing scheduled for Jan. 18 in Los Angeles, where they will put forth their case for the dismissal of Chyna's lawsuit.
