Blac Chyna’s decision to tell Kris Jenner “you’ll be hearing from my attorney” continues to be an expensive one. I know it sounds like a bad bitch baller line, but if you don’t have the means to back it up, it could spell financial ruin. Unfortunately for Chyna, after hearing from Chyna’s attorney in a court of law, Kris is now asking Chyna to pay the $391,000 in legal fees that convo generated. Tch. And they say talk is cheap.
As we know, Chyna lost her $100,000 lawsuit against Kris and kompany. The lawsuit alleged that the Kardashians plotted against her to get Rob & Chyna, her spin-off reality TV show with ex Rob Kardashian, canceled. According to Page Six, part of the judgment made in favor of Kris, Khloé Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner was that Chyna would have to cover the cost of their legal fees. And now we’re hearing from Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, that “Kris Jenner’s attempt to financially ruin Angela White … will not work.” Probably because it’s too late. Chyna’s GoFundMe has only increased by $59 since last month. Somebody better find God and start praying for a decimal error. Page Six reports:
Blac Chyna’s attorney hit back at the Kardashian-Jenners’ filing demanding she pay them more than $391,000 in legal fees.
Lynne Ciani, who represented Chyna in her recent two-week trial against the reality TV stars, told Page Six in an exclusive statement late Tuesday that the powerhouse family “cannot recover” the legal fees from her client (born Angela White).
“Kris Jenner’s attempt to financially ruin Angela White, the mother of her granddaughter Dream Kardashian, will not work,” Ciani said.
Won’t somebody other than Lynne please think of the children, or does she have to do everything? Lynn’s argument is that Chyna should not have to pay the legal fees because the defendants were not found to be without fault. Which is demonstrably true in the broader sense, but may not hold water in this particular instance.
The lawyer explained that, under California law, costs are only awarded to defendants “when they are without fault,” but the jury came to a verdict that both Kris and Kylie Jenner “falsely claimed” Chyna had abused her ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian.
“The same Los Angeles jury reached a verdict that defendants Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner did not act reasonably and in good faith to protect their own economic interests in the ‘Rob & Chyna’ show,” Ciani’s statement continued.
“Because Ms. White achieved these litigation objectives, defendants cannot be considered ‘prevailing parties’ under California law, and they cannot recover their exorbitant litigation costs of $391,000 from Ms. White.”
Let’s not forget that Chyna is still in negotiations with Rob over her revenge porn lawsuit against him, which she used to try to wiggle out from under a lawsuit filed against the both of them by her other ex Pilot Jones for alleged cyberbullying. I hope future Supreme Kourt Justice Kim Kardashian is paying attention to all this. Chyna’s spent so many non-billable hours pursuing lawsuits against her family that Kris might get ideas. Next thing you know, Kris will agree to drop her request for the legal fees if Chyna will sign on to star in a new spin-off called Blac to School all about Chyna’s journey from the pole to the (baby) bar.
