Rob Kardashian’s assault lawsuit against ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna was dismissed in 2017.
Rob Kardashian has dropped his assault lawsuit against his ex, Blac Chyna, after a year-long legal struggle.
Rob Kardashian has chosen to quit his legal battle with Blac Chyna, his ex-girlfriend. According to Page Six, the 34-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star filed a petition to drop his assault complaint against the 33-year-old without prejudice, which was approved by a judge on Friday, Feb. 18. «My determination to proceed with my allegations against her mother in a public trial greatly outweighs my love for Dream,» Rob told the site on Friday.
«Now that the court has concluded that there is sufficient evidence to warrant a jury trial on my assault claim, I am dismissing the action for the sake of our daughter and focusing on my co-parenting relationship with Chyna,» he stated. The motion was dismissed after a judge granted Rob’s request to postpone the trial, which was slated to begin next week.
Rob first sued Blac Chyna for assault in 2017, stating that after ingesting a substantial amount of drugs and alcohol, the mother of his daughter Dream strangled him with an iPhone charger.
Rob claims he got away in the end, but Chyna allegedly continued to punch him in the face and head.
Rob also claimed that Chyna caused him many neck injuries, however, the model continued to dispute the claims.
Eugene Shpilsky and Victory Belz, two of Rob’s acquaintances, both claimed (on different occasions) that they had seen Chyna raise a gun at him and threaten his life.
They were supposed to appear in court to testify on his behalf. Rob’s mom Kris Jenner’s boyfriend, Corey Gamble, was reportedly slated to appear in court on Rob’s behalf.
Before the case was dropped, Chyna’s lawyer, Lynne Ciani, told Page Six that «Chyna has video evidence proving Rob didn’t have a mark or scratch on him after the purported attack — because there was no attack.» She also called the complaint «malicious» and «baseless.»
«For more than four years, Rob has worked to tarnish Chyna as a mother and even as a human being through this vexatious lawsuit,» the lawyer stated.
«On the eve of trial, Rob abandoned his lawsuit, not because he suddenly decided to drop the case ‘for the sake of his daughter,’ but because he knew his assault and battery allegations against Chyna were untrue.» In other words, Rob’s decision to dismiss his lawsuit was motivated by his desire to escape the catastrophic implications of a negative jury verdict, not by his ostensible ‘care’ for his daughter.
«Chyna will now seek court relief to ensure that Rob is unable to refile his claim and to make him pay for her significant litigation fees,» she said.
