Kris Jenner spoke on day three of Blac Chyna’s $108 million defamation lawsuit against the Kardashian-Jenner family and told the courtroom that she discussed allegations that Blac Chyna threatened her daughter Kylie Jenner with Tyga and Kylie “many times”.
Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, called Jenner to the stand for the final hour of Wednesday’s session.
Chyna, whose legal name is Angela White, is seeking $108 million in damages from the Kardashian-Jenners. She claims they unfairly insulted her at E! Network executives five years ago after she and Rob Kardashian split, jeopardizing the show’s second season “Rob & Chyna.” The family denied the allegations in the lawsuit.
During Jenner’s testimony, Ciani asked about her Dec. 4, 2019 deposition, related to the case. Ciani read a passage where Jenner claimed Chyna was “threatening my daughter’s life.”
Jenner told the court she heard about the claim from Kylie and Tyga, who were dating at the time. Chyna and Tyga dated from 2011 to 2014 and were briefly engaged before going their separate ways. Kylie dated Tyga between 2014 and 2017, and Rob Kardashian and Chyna dated and got engaged between 2016 and 2017.
Jenner alleged that she heard about the threats before her son Rob started dating Chyna.
“Kylie got dragged into this because she was dating Tyga and that’s where the assault came from,” Jenner told the court. When asked to elaborate on the specifics of the allegations against Chyna, Jenner told the court “you should ask Kylie” or “you should ask Tyga” on several occasions.
“I’ll stand by what she says,” Jenner said of what Kylie told her, which included allegations that Chyna cut Tyga’s arm with a knife. Jenner said she never called the police on Chyna when she heard those stories and “we just kept her in.”
Jenner later told the court she “didn’t react much” when she found out Rob and Chyna were dating, after learning about the domestic abuse allegations.
“If you thought Blac Chyna was trying to kill your daughter, why don’t you care if Rob is dating her?” Ciani asked Jenner.
Jenner pointed out that Ciani said “attempted” instead of “threatened.”
“It’s a big difference,” Jenner told the court.
“I’m sorry I misspoke when I said ‘tried,'” Ciani said.
The Kardashian-Jenner matriarch, who spoke in an electric blue suit and Travis Scott Jordan One sneakers, told the courtroom that there had been “a lot of drama in my family and I’m there. accustomed”. She said she was happy for Chyna and Rob before things got out of hand on December 15, 2016.
“I didn’t know where it was going, it was a rocky relationship from the start,” Jenner said. “I just wanted my son to be happy, I wanted him to be happy and I just wanted him to win. I tried to be a mentor for Chyna, helping businesses, nurseries, things like that .”
Jenner later told the court that as executive producer of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’, she was ‘not part of the internal discussions’ with the network and had no knowledge of the spinoff’s season 2. “Rob & Chyna” being greenlit despite an E! network statement on the resumption of season 2 of the series.
“I wasn’t aware of that,” Jenner told the court; his testimony will resume on Friday.
