According to legal documents obtained from Us on Friday, April 29, the judge ruled that there was no evidence that anything Kardashian, 41, said was “alleged to be defamatory” against Chyna, 33. Although the defamation case was dismissed, there are still allegations of intentional interference with a contract regarding the canceled. Rob & Chyna series.

In 2017, Chyna, 33, filed a lawsuit against the Kardashian-Jenner family — specifically Kim, Khloé Kardashian, Kris JennerAnd Kylie Jenner. The model is seeking $100 Million in damages for the cancellation of her reality series with ex Rob Kardashian. Chyna claimed that Rob’s family was responsible for the show being pulled off E!

Earlier this month, the Kardashians’ attorney Michael G. RhodesThe case was dismissed. Rhodes argued in legal documents that Chyna has provided “no documentary evidence, economic analysis, or expert testimony” in court to support the lawsuit going forward.

“Before trial began, these claims were absurd,” the lawyer wrote at the time. “Now that [Chyna]Defendants respectfully assert that such an instruction would not be a good remedy. She has testified in full and has no evidence or additional testimony to show her damages. … Ms. White’s unsupported and wildly speculative claims for damages must not be allowed to go to the jury.”

The Skims founder has previously stated in court that she does not recall specific details regarding the canceled reality series. Kim’s thoughts on Chyna joining Keeping up with the KardashiansThese issues were addressed on Tuesday 26 April. “Chyna can never be on her show,” a text written by the KKW Beauty founder stated.
