Judge denies Kardashians’ motion to dismiss Blac Chyna’s lawsuit

Blac Chyna has scored a legal victory against the Kardashians.

On Tuesday, a judge denied the Kardashians’ motion to dismiss 32-year-old Chyna’s lawsuit against them over the cancellation of her reality series with ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian, “Rob & Chyna.”

“Chyna is beyond thrilled that she will have her day in court,” Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, told Page Six in a statement.

The judge based his ruling on “the substantial evidence filed by Chyna, including unaired Season 2 ‘Rob & Chyna’ footage and internal business documents from NBCUniversal and Bunim Murray Productions,” the statement continued.

Rob’s attorney, Marty Singer, previously has claimed that the E! reality series was canceled because the then-couple, who share daughter Dream, had called it quits.

A rep for Rob didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.

The “Real Blac Chyna” star sued the entire Kardashian family in October 2017 over claims of assault, battery, domestic violence, defamation and interference with prospective economic relation in regards to the canceled show, “Rob & Chyna.”

Chyna later claimed that NBCUniversal “trampled” on her rights and alleged it was a company plagued by systemic racism, saying if she had been white she wouldn’t have been treated the way she was. She also claimed NBCUniversal and its smaller company, E!, didn’t inform her about allegations made by the Kardashian family that Chyna had physically abused Rob.

Neither NBCUniversal nor E! were named as defendants in the lawsuit, though Chyna later requested Ryan Seacrest, who served as an executive producer, be deposed in the ongoing legal battle.

Though Chyna has won this round in her ongoing legal battle against the reality TV family, she’s also hit snafus against them. Last month, Chyna attempted to have Rob Kardashian’s assault case against her dropped, but a judge ruled it should go forward.
