Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna settled out of court just before the trial started

In late April/early May, Blac Chyna’s lawsuit against the Kardashians concluded. The defamation part of her case was tossed out of civil court, and at the end of the day, the jury deliberated for 10 hours, then came out and ruled against Chyna. That lawsuit was all about the cancellation of Rob & Chyna and about Chyna’s claims that Kim Kardashian had maligned her publicly. That court case ended up being awful for Chyna too – all of the Kardashians testified against her and Chyna came across as a violent drug user and stalker.

While the family has deep pockets – and that’s why Chyna went after them – I’ve been waiting to see what would come of Chyna’s civil suit against Rob Kardashian solo. In 2017, Chyna and Rob had one of the messiest, most disturbing breakups ever – the background is here, and basically, Rob posted multiple images of “revenge p0rn” on his social media to get back at Chyna during their split. It was awful. And that was the case Chyna had a shot at winning, hands down. But it won’t go to trial. Apparently, Chyna and Rob have settled out of court.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna don’t agree on much, but were apparently able to hammer out an agreement before another nasty trial was scheduled to kickoff between the two. Jury selection in the former couple’s revenge porn case was to begin Monday in L.A., however, potential jurors were informed they’d no longer be needed — as the two had reached a settlement.

We don’t yet know the terms of the deal, or if it was financial … but we do know Rob and his legal team put up quite a fight to prevent the trial from even happening in the first place.

As we reported, Rob claimed he and Chyna had already struck a deal to end the revenge porn case. Rob said he had agreed to help Chyna get out of another case if she’d drop the revenge porn case … but then claimed Chyna never held up her end of the bargain.

A judge decided Rob’s proof of a prior deal wasn’t good enough, and ordered the revenge porn case to continue … but obviously, that changed Monday morning when the two sides figured something out. It was back in 2017 when Rob posted several naked photos of Chyna on social media. At the time, she reportedly was looking for 7-figures from Rob for the alleged damage his posting the photos did to her reputation and potential business deals.

I think it’s interesting that they worked out something and considering the lack of details, I’m assuming that the terms were more beneficial to Rob than Chyna. If she got everything she wanted, she would want people to know. I hope she did get a nice financial settlement though – what Rob did to her was reprehensible and criminal.

Incidentally, Rob has been off/banned from Instagram since the 2017 mess, although I think Kris Jenner’s team runs this Instagram account, which mostly consists of photos of Dream. In March, Chyna posted some sh-t on her social media about how she gets “no support” from either Rob or Tyga, and both men ended up pointing out that they actually have custody of their children (King Cairo and Dream) for five or six days out of the week. I genuinely wonder how Chyna is doing financially right now.

    What a Kardashambles.

  2. Wiglet Watcher says:

    They’re both awful.

    • EnormousCoat says:

      WigletWatcher, I agree completely. It is tempting to fall into the trap of assigning goodness to a person just because their friend or significant other is bad, but sometimes, neither have clean hands. But the revenge porn should have had criminal legal consequences imo.

    Who’s William going to blame when he’s King?

    • ASH56 says:

      Of course, his brother. The Keens are worse than the Kardashians, at least they are not racist and do show up for family. I am sure if Boldermort has risque photos of Kate he would release them if they ever divorce so he can embiggen himself.

  4. Noki says:

    I know Kris Jenner is behind this not going forward, i get the feeling that Rob is not capable of having a public showdown right now. Its too bad Rob will always be taken care of and protected by PMK. I do hope Chyna got a fat cheque and they also dropped their legal fees that they wanted HER to pay.

  5. jferber says:

    Maybe Chyna had to sign a non-disclosure agreement about the money? I too hope she got a fat check.

    • AMA1977 says:

      It’s pretty standard to include non-disclosure language in an out-of-court settlement, so I’m sure that it was included here.

  6. AAW says:

    I looked at the Instagram and you can TELL it’s Rob himself and NOT “Jenner Communications” or whatever…also, I bet you anything she got NOTHING and the clan agreed to drop seeking that 400k from the other trial.

    • Swaz says:

      I bet you anything SHE GOT ALOT. It’s Kris that’s paying anyway, Rob has nothing to do with it🤢

  7. Delphine says:

    I don’t know who is advising her but she should have only pursued the case that she had a chance of winning. She should never have brought the case against the KJ’s about trying to kill the show. She had no shot with that and hurt her image with the trial whereas she really could and should have won the case against Rob. No matter what went down between them he had no right to post revenge porn in any universe. Why would he want his daughter to be able to know he did that and even see it? The fact that he would do that makes me question a little of the narrative that prevailed at trial. I’m not saying she’s innocent but only a misogynistic abuser posts revenge porn.

    Rob Kardashian is only worth 8 millions dollars and most of it is from inheritance from his father. So how much Black Chyna could have possibly gotten from her lawsuit? Beng a male Kardashian is a big hindrance to getting rich. Rob is just a loser who will end up living in his mother’s basement in a few years.

    • ME says:

      He does have a sock line and hot sauce line…not sure if they make good money or not. There are rumblings he’s getting married to an instagram model…and she’s pregnant. I guess we’ll see soon enough if the rumors are true.

      People call PMK a genius when it comes to business, yet she can’t seem to do anything successful with Rob. This family’s success has more to do with sex appeal than anything else. They sell sex, they sell a fake image, they sell their fake asses and bodies. She can’t do any of that with Rob.

  9. ME says:

    It’s too bad she didn’t go through with the trial. She would have won. I bet they gave her a lot of “hush” money. They know she needs the money too. The trial would have been horrible for the Kardashians. We know Chyna loves to talk. No way would Rob have looked good here. I hate how this family can just throw money at anyone to keep them quiet. Ray-J stopped talking too. I wonder if he got some money from them too lol.
