The restraining order of Blac Chyna against her former fiancé, Rob Kardashian, was the main reason why there is no second season for Rob & Chyna, according to the lawyers of the Kardashians.
Kim Kardashian and Kim Jenner answered the allegations of Blac Chyna that E! did not order a second season of the reality show because of them. But, the court papers indicated that the show was discontinued because of Chyna.
The Kardashian family is asking for the dismissal of the lawsuit of Chyna. The lawsuit alleges that the family defamed Chyna. It also alleges that they wrongfully interfered with the filming of the second season of the show. Attorneys for the Kardashians argued that it was not possible for the second season to be filmed after a domestic violence restraining order was secured by Chyna against her former fiancé, Rob Kardashian. The order prevents him from contacting or getting near her both directly and indirectly.
The court order was secured by Chyna following the posting of explicit photos of Chyna on social media by Rob. Rob was also allegedly abusive.
Lisa Bloom, Chyna’s lawyer, said the decision to discontinue the reality show happened some months earlier.
She said they allege that the interference of the Kardashian family caused the cancellation. This came after Chyna ended her relationship with Rob. Bloom added that they are confident they will win the motion and the trial.
The lawsuit was originally filed on October 17 by Chyna against Kris Jenner and the five Kardashian sisters, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, and Kendall. It alleged that they wrongfully interfered with the filming of the second season of the show. It also alleged that they defamed Chyna. While Chyna dropped the claims against four of the sisters, she kept the claims against Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner.
The claim was filed around two weeks after a lawsuit was filed by Rob Kardashian. The lawsuit accused Chyna of using Rob and his family for her own financial gain.
The lawsuit of Chyna pointed to the April 23 episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” where Kim showed her concerns on continuing the filming of the reality show of Rob and Chyna. Kim said that no one felt that the bad energy should not be fueled with a second season of the show.
According to Chyna, the comments showed that the Kardashians wanted to prevent showed that they were attempting to stop her from becoming a social media influencer and entrepreneur. She also said the Kardashians also made a false claim that she went to a party while leaving behind Dream, he newborn child, at home.
The lawyers of the Kardashians said their clients cannot be sued for being concerned with a loved one. They also argued that Chyna was not defamed since the statement about the party was partly true since she left Dream with a nanny at home while she made a public appearance in a nightclub.
The hearing on the dismissal of the lawsuit of Chyna is set to be held on January 18.
