On Monday we reported that Blac Chyna lost her defamation case against the Kardashians. Read that post here!
According to the Daily Mail, Blac Chyna was stunned at the results, sitting in silence as the verdict was read.
Her attorney Lynne Ciani said that based on her reading of the verdict, ‘the jury found that Chyna had not physically abused Rob Kardashian,’ and ‘the jury found that all four defendants had intentionally interfered with her contract with the E! Network.’
‘We will appeal on the remaining questions,’ she added.
Her mother has now launched a GoFundMe to try and pay for her daughter’s appeal. She is seeking $400,000.
The 33-year-old had accused Kim Kardashian, her sisters Khloe and Kylie Jenner, and their mother, Kris Jenner, of making statements that ruined or defamed her reputation and of plotting to get her TV show ‘Rob and Chyna’ axed.
On Friday, Kim was dropped from the defamation part of the suit.
But on Monday, the jury returned a verdict that, while it did not completely exonerate the billionaire clan of any wrongdoing, still awarded Chyna no damages at all.
The Los Angeles jury found that none of the members defamed Chyna, nor did any interfere with her contract by convincing the E! network to cancel her reality show ‘Rob & Chyna.’
After about 10 hours of deliberations, the jurors decided on the long jury form that the Kardashians often acted in bad faith, finding that they were not justified in telling the executives and producers of ‘Rob & Chyna’ that Chyna abused their son and brother Rob Kardashian.
But they found that it had no substantial effect on Chyna’s contract or the fate of the show, and she was awarded no damages.
Executives from the E! network, which aired the show, testified that ‘Rob & Chyna’ ended because the relationship ended, not because of the defendants’ actions.
‘They’re very pleased,’ Rhodes said. ‘I hope they enjoy their gala in New York.’
The Kardashians, meanwhile, were ‘exuberant’ at the news, their lawyer Michael Rhodes said. They were not in court, because they were attending the Met Gala in New York City.
‘I’m just happy it’s over,’ Kris Jenner told Variety.
She said the toughest part was ‘going through it’.
Asked how she coped, she replied: ‘Pray. I live in my faith and just hope that’s enough, and yeah, I’m glad it’s over. I’m glad it’s over for the girls. We’re here to celebrate.’
