Why is Blac Chyna suing the Kardashians?
Blac Chyna - real name Angela White - had a turbulent relationship with Rob Kardashian, which was shown on their E! series, Rob & Chyna.
The series was axed following their split, with Rob’s attorney maintaining that their split was the reason behind the show coming to an end.
According to documents obtained by MailOnline, Chyna is said to be suing the Kardashians for $108millon (£83million) in damages - $44million (£33million) for ‘past economic damage’ and $64million (£49million) for ‘future economic damage’.
The model alleges that the show being scrapped ‘not only hurt me financially and emotionally but hurt my beautiful kids’.
In response, the Kardashians have denied any wrongdoing and claim that they had legitimate concerns about Chyna and Rob’s relationship, which they branded ‘violent and toxic’.
During a recent appearance in court, Chyna testified about the night she wrapped a phone cord around Rob’s neck and grabbed his gun, telling the court ‘it was just a joke’.
Chyna, who also shares her nine-year-old son King Cario with the ex-boyfriend of Kylie Jenner, Tyga, recently told the court that former friend Kim ‘reached out to her and said she can’t be friends with me anymore’ when Kylie began dating the rapper.
The trial is expected to last a total of ten days.
