Kris Jenner Admits Blac Chyna’s Defamation Lawsuit Was ‘Emotionally, Physically & Spiritually Exhausting’


Kris Jenner is getting candid about the impact that Blac Chyna’s defamation lawsuit had on her and her family.

During Thursday’s (Sept. 29) episode of The Kardashians, the 66-year-old momager spent time with her daughter, Kylie Jenner, 25, after the beauty mogul welcomed her second child with Travis Scott. However, Kris Jenner admitted she couldn’t be fully present with Kylie as she had a pressing matter on her mind — the then-ongoing lawsuit between her family and her son Rob Kardashian’s ex, Blac Chyna. In her confessional, Kris said,

“It’s always so special spending time with Kylie, but we also have this trial looming over our head. Blac Chyna is suing myself, Khloé [Kardashian], Kylie and Kim [Kardashian] for defamation of character and interference of character.”

She continued,

“As a mom, I’m very protective of my kids, and on top of that, it’s really draining. It’s emotionally, physically and spiritually exhausting to be going through this.”

Kris added,

“I can’t really say anything about it, I really don’t want to add to the drama but I want to take my mind off of it right now so I’m gonna spend some time with Kylie.”

This conversation was filmed before the Kardashian-Jenner family officially won the defamation trial against Blac Chyna.

Following Blac Chyna’s split from Rob Kardashian, the businesswoman sued the Kardashians in 2017 for allegedly interfering with the future of her reality show, “Rob & Chyna,” which documented their relationship. The show aired from September 2016 to December 2016. The show was renewed for a second season but put on hold until July 2017 due to Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s consistent breakups. Later that year, Blac Chyna, born Angela White, filed her lawsuit against the Kardashians.

The reality star/model sued her ex Rob Kardashian’s sisters Kim KardashianKhloé KardashianKylie Jenner, and mother Kris Jenner for more than $100 million in monetary damages. The hefty lawsuit called for $40 million for loss of earnings and more than $60 million in future earnings for allegedly having her reality show “Rob & Chyna” cut from the E! Network for a second season. Kim Kardashian was dismissed from the lawsuit earlier in the trial by a judge prior to the big win for the Kardashian-Jenner family.

In May, a verdict was handed down stating that the Kardashian-Jenner family won the case and Chyna was not awarded for claimed damages. A judge ordered Chyna to pay the Kardashians’ litigation costs, which were estimated up to $400,000 after she failed to convince the jury that the Kardashian family owed her $108 million.

According to Blac Chyna’s attorney Lynne Ciani, she plans to appeal the verdict in her lawsuit case. The news of the appeal came shortly after the verdict was announced. Despite not winning her court case, the jurors reportedly came to the conclusion that Chyna was not abusive to her former fiancée Rob Kardashian, and that his family was involved in the cancellation of their show. Per reports, attorney Lynne Ciani stated,

“Two things. Number one, the jury found that Chyna had not physically abused Rob Kardashian.” 

Lynne Ciani added,

“Number two, the jury found that all four defendants intentionally interfered with [Chyna’s] contracts with the E! Network. We will appeal the remainder of the verdict.”
