The Kardashian family is ripping Blac Chyna over her new claims that racism played a role in the cancelation of the reality TV show she once starred in with her ex, Rob Kardashian.
Back in 2017, Chyna sued the entire Kardashian family, claiming they torpedoed "Rob & Chyna," which aired for only one season on E!. Initially, she said the family interfered with production, leading the network to put the kibosh on it. The cancelation of the show, which had lackluster ratings compared to other Kardashian spinoffs, greatly impacted Chyna's bottom line, she said at the time.
Now, with systemic change at the forefront of many conversations throughout the country, Chyna's team says racism is the real reason "Rob & Chyna" never got a second season on E!.
In a statement to Page Six, Chyna and her attorney argue that the three white "executive-level decision-makers at the E! Network and NBCUniversal … completely denied any due process to their black reality TV star regarding the fate of Season 2 of 'Rob & Chyna.'"
Chyna's team argues that had she not been a "'unicorn' black reality TV star" things would have been handled differently.
Following the new claims, the Kardashian-Jenner clan's attorney, Marty Singer, blasted Chyna, implying that she's attempting to capitalize on the unrest in the country, stemming from the killing of George Floyd.
"This is a 2-year-old lawsuit in which Chyna has changed her defense more times than we can count," he told Page Six in a statement. "Sadly, unsurprising to anyone, she has stooped to a new low, changing her defense to try to leverage the emotions and pain of the moment, insulting the pain and suffering of real victims of racial injustice and systemic racism."
"We take these allegations very seriously and once again, there is no 'Rob & Chyna' show if there is no Rob & Chyna," the statement said.
On Friday, TMZ added that Rob and Chyna could not have filmed a second season with fresh content because they had split up in the summer of 2017, and also because Chyna had a restraining order against Rob, which kept him away from her.
