The model, who shares 5-year-old daughter Dream Kardashian with her ex, is granted a chance to defend herself as the court gives two-hour deposition each for the Kardashian-Jenner sisters as well as Kris Jenner.
AceShowbiz –Blac Chyna has been granted a chance to defend herself. The model and her legal team are set to depose Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner as part of Rob Kardashian‘s assault and battery lawsuit against her.
The 33-year-old model’s attorney Lynne Ciani said in a statement obtained by Page Six on Monday, January 10 that they are “very pleased to announce” that her client will be able to depose the Kardashian-Jenner family as the trial court has “agreed” the reality stars are “not above the law.”
According to sources, Blac, born Angela Renee White, had initially wanted each of the women to be deposed for seven hours. At the hearing, her lawyer said she would agree to a four-hour deposition. However, the court ended up reducing the deposition to just two hours per person.
Upon learning of the deposition, Michael Rhodes, counsel for the Kardashian-Jenner family, said in a statement on Tuesday, “We are pleased the court limited the scope of the depositions to minimize the burden on the very busy members of the family.” The reality family’s legal team previously had attempted to quash the deposition, arguing the women had already been “examined exhaustively in a related matter.”
“The subpoenas must be quashed because they present an unwarranted annoyance, embarrassment, oppression and undue burden on the Non-Parties,” the lawyers stated in court documents. The attorneys continued that the Non-Parties “have already been examined exhaustively by Ms. White in the related matter.”
The court documents added, “Ms. White has no basis for wanting to depose these Non-Parties again on the same issues, other than to harass and burden the Kardashians/Jenners and generate headlines forcing the Non-Parties to file this motion.” The lawyers further insisted, “The court should reject Ms. White’s misuse of the discovery process and quash the subpoenas.”
Blac and Rob, who share one daughter, 5-year-old Dream Kardashian, parted ways in 2017. That same year, Rob sued her for allegedly attacking him after getting drunk. He claimed she tried to choke him with the wire of an iPhone charger. He explained further that he was somehow able to escape but not before she repeatedly punched him in the face and caused injuries to his neck.
As for now, Rob is reportedly dating and “feeling really good about himself,” as his sister Khloe said. The Good American founder shared an update on her brother when speaking to Andy Cohen in the “KUWTK” reunion. Confirming that her sibling is no longer single, the 37-year-old added, “I know Rob is feeling really good about himself right now and he’s working really hard on himself.”
After host Andy asked Khloe about Rob’s absence from the reality show after he decided to step back, Khloe explained that Rob “just needed a break.” The mother of True Thompson said, “I think also a lot of his personal relationships. Really, it’s not so much about physical appearance, it’s a lot of how he felt internally about some of the women in his life and how they treated him, or how he felt they might have used him to get to certain areas or levels.”
“And I think that really affected him because my brother is such a lover and has like, the most incredible heart and personality,” Khloe further shared. “And I think he’s just getting stronger and I think you have to get heartbroken and you learn from your mistakes.”
