Take the stand. Blac Chyna was called as a witness in her ongoing defamation case against the Kardashian-Jenners, opening up about an alleged altercation with her ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian.

The 33-year old model claimed during Wednesday’s April 20 court testimony that she pointed a gun in the direction of Arthur George, 35-year-old sock designer, in December 2016. It was all a joke. According to TMZ reports, Chyna claimed that Rob locked himself inside a room with her smartphone, making her more agitated. She allegedly smashed a gingerbread home and damaged their television set as a result. She allegedly told Rob: “Give me back my phone, give me back my property.”

Rob previously filed court documents, alleging that Chyna — with whom he shares 5-year-old daughter Dream — intended to “inflict severe injury to me and I feared for my life.” He also claimed that she attempted to choke him with an iPhone charging cord and pointed a loaded gun at his head.

The Kardashian family’s attorney, Michael RhodesChyna was then cross-examined on Wednesday by Rob about the incident. She said that she held the gun up to Rob, but denied that she had touched the trigger. She also claimed that it was only a joke. The “Cash Only” performer further asserted that she had attempted to get Rob’s attention while he was playing a video game by wrapping the cell phone cord around his neck in a playful way, claiming there was no struggle.

During her testimony, Chyna (real name Angela Renée White) also alleged that Rob kept the firearm on his bedroom dresser, noting it was not loaded when she picked it up, per Entertainment Tonight.

The Real Black Chyna alum filed her lawsuit against Rob’s family in 2017 after their reality TV show, Rob & ChynaThe production of, was put on hold. The docuseries, which aired between September to December 2016, chronicled the former couple’s relationship amid Chyna’s pregnancy with Dream. The Washington, D.C. native claimed that Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Khloé KardashianAnd Kylie Jenner — who were all in court on Wednesday — interfered with the show’s production after it was renewed for a second season.

“Blac Chyna will seek millions in compensatory and punitive damages from Kris, Kim, Khloé and Kylie for defamation, intentional interference with contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage,” the rapper’s lawyer, Lynne Ciani?, told Us Weekly in a statement in October 2020. “Chyna is beyond thrilled that she will have her day in court.”

Although the Kardashian-Jenners initially moved to dismiss the lawsuit in the beginning, court proceedings began earlier in the month.

“I am so thankful that a jury will finally listen to what really happened behind closed doors — the lies that were told and the damage that was done,” the Lashed Cosmetics founder tweeted at the time. “At the end of the trial, I’m going to be able to proudly tell King and Dream that I did everything I could to right the wrong that was done to me. And that, in life, it is my hope that they will be able to stand up for themselves when it matters too.”
