Blac Chyna is adding a racism twist to the 2017 lawsuit she filed against the entire Kardashian family for interfering with her show reality show Rob & Chyna, causing the producers and NBCUniversal to cancel it.
Specifically, Chyna alleged that Kris Jenner pushed her out by accusing her of beating her co-star and Kris's son Rob Kardashian.
According to Page Six, Chyna's lawyers are now arguing there was a racial element to what went down:
“NBCUniversal executives never invited Chyna, the allegedly violent cast member (and also an Executive Producer of ‘Rob & Chyna’), to the emergency meeting.”
Ciani also claims that NBC executives “never viewed the existing unaired Season 2 footage … that conclusively proves that Kris Jenner lied when she claimed that Chyna had ‘beat the [expletive] out of Rob’s face.'”
In her previously filed lawsuit, Chyna, who in the past alleged that Rob punched her, claimed the cancellation of her E! reality show greatly impacted her financial livelihood and now says NBCUniversal deprived her of “due process.”
Chyna and her attorney also suggest in their new statement that “had Chyna been a white reality TV star, rather than the ‘unicorn’ black reality TV star,” then Jenner “either never would have been made in the first place or her false accusation would have been quickly investigated by E! and NBCUniversal and proven false …”
Kardashian-Jenner family lawyer Marty Singer pushed back hard on the new allegations.
“This its a 2-year-old lawsuit in which Chyna has changed her defense more times than we can count,” Singer told Page Six in a statement. “Sadly, unsurprising to anyone, she has stooped to a new low, changing her defense to try to leverage the emotions and pain of the moment, insulting the pain and suffering of real victims of racial injustice and systemic racism."
