Kris Jenner sought to cancel “Rob & Chyna” and even messaged E! Network execs need to ‘drop the bitch,’ Chyna’s attorney says
Chyna’s attorney says texts from Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner prove that Jenner played a role in the cancellation of reality show “Rob & Chyna,” Page Six reported.
The cause of the show’s ending — whether it was Kardashian interference, as Chyna claims, or Rob and Chyna’s breakup — is a key issue in the case.
Lyenne Ciani, Chyna’s attorney, said that on December 14, 2016, when E! announced that “Rob & Chyna” would be picked up for a second seasonan argument between Chyna and Rob broke out.
Ciani said after Jenner took it upon herself to reach out to E! Network executives, begging them to cancel the show and “give up the female dog”.
Ciani also said Jenner insulted Chyna in the process, calling her “stupid” and “really ghetto.” Ciani claimed that Kim, Kylie and Khloé also made similar demands to cancel the show.
Kardashian family attorney Michael Rhodes denied the allegations and said E! canceled “Rob & Chyna” due to the toxicity of the couple’s relationship.
Jenner also later said that as executive producer of the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” show, she “wasn’t part of the internal discussions” with the network about “Rob & Chyna” being greenlit for a show. second season.
While the details of December’s argument are unclear, Chyna said there was no physical altercation between her and Rob, while Jenner said Chyna “beat the shit out of Rob’s face.”
When asked to clarify the statement, Jenner compared the incident to the Oscars slap in the face between Chris Rock and Will Smith, calling his choice of words a “figure of speech.”
