Finally, he was heard. Rob KardashianThe stand was taken amid Blac Chyna’s defamation suit against Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloé KardashianAndKylie Jenner, testifying that he doesn’t believe he was in love with the mother of his daughter, Dream.
“I was probably at the worst place in my entire life, at my weakest, lowest point,” the 35-year-old former reality star said in court on Wednesday, April 27, per several outlets. “She was the one person who brought me in at my lowest point. So I ignored her bad behavior toward my family.”
Rob said he was “very vulnerable” during his 2016 relationship with Chyna, 33.
“I wasn’t thinking about that stuff. My mind was just in a completely different place,” he said. “It wasn’t real love.”
Rob later clarified, “My child wasn’t born out of spite.”
The Kardashian-Jenners were in court for days with Lashed Cosmetics founder as she sued them over cancelling former reality shows. Rob & Chyna, which didn’t continue for a second season following the pair’s messy split. Chyna is seeking $109635,021 in economic damages and $36,000,000 in emotional distress damages.
One day before Rob took the stand, Kris’ boyfriend and former security guard, Corey GambleRob claimed that he saw Chyna whip Rob in December 2016. Rob spoke out on Wednesday about the alleged incident.
“She landed several blows to my face, my back,” the Arthur George designer claimed, per Page Six. “She ripped my shirt early in the evening and we were throwing money around in our Snapchat. It was fun at first. I didn’t think it got serious until the second gun encounter … you don’t point a gun on your fiancé’s head whether you think it’s loaded or not.”
Chyna’s lawyer, Lynne Ciani, questioned Rob for not showing the bruises online, to which he replied, “She landed several blows on my body (with the metal rod) … but not everyone is going to bruise just because someone hit you. It didn’t leave a mark when I had a gun to my temple. The cord around my neck, I’m sure that left a mark.”
The model for her part downplayed the violence earlier in the month and told the court she was just having fun.
Kris, Kim, Khloé and Kylie have also testified in the case, which the Kardashian-Jenner family has asked the judge to dismiss before it goes to the jury’s decision.
“Before trial began, these claims were absurd,” their attorney Michael G. Rhodes wrote in the court documents obtained by Us Weeklyearlier this month. “Now that [Chyna]Having testified in full, and with no evidence or additional testimony to support her damages claims, the defendants respectfully submit that such an instruction would be an inadequate remedy. … Ms. White’s unsupported and wildly speculative claims for damages must not be allowed to go to the jury.”
