Blac Chyna says she knows the Kardashians never harmed her
Former reality TV star Blac Chyna admitted Thursday that she had no personal knowledge of anything Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian or Kylie Jenner said or did to tarnish their reputation.
Hyna was on the witness stand in a Los Angeles court for day three during the trial for her $100million (£77million) lawsuit against the four Kardashian women, who allege they forced the cancellation of their Rob & Chyna show and her celebrity damaged status.
When questioning Chyna, Kardashian attorney Michael G. Rhodes forcefully asked, “Am I right, you are not aware of anything Khloe Kardashian has done or said, verbally or in writing, that has harmed your career?”
“Right,” she replied. “Not in the face.”
“Same goes for Kim Kardashian, right?”
“Right, I was fine,” Chyna said.
“As you sit here in this courtroom before this jury,” Rhodes said angrily, “is there anything you know of that either of you has done to tarnish your reputation?”
“No,” she replied, “but now I know what they did behind my back.”
All of the Kardashian defendants except Kylie Jenner were in court Wednesday. All four were present every other day of the hearing.

Chyna, 33, whose real name is Angela White, struggled a lot more on the witness stand than she had the day before as she remained calm as she discussed a 2016 party night that turned into a bitter battle with her ex-fiancé and father of hers daughter Rob Kardashian, which led to the end of their relationship and reality series.
She repeatedly said she didn’t get it when Rhodes showed her a document that appeared to include her signature and agreed to receive a $100,000 “killing fee” for canceling Rob & Chyna, at a time when she previously said she still believed the show would get a second season.
“I wouldn’t have signed that,” she said. “We had the green light.”
Rhodes also read Chyna a long list of negative headlines about her involvement in public fights and clashes with authorities, and asked her if the Kardashians had anything to do with those stories.
She tried to refute some and explain others.
“They always report wrong things,” she said after a dispute was reported with a neighbor who called the police.
But Rhodes repeatedly replied: “I’m not saying it happened or not, I’m just saying there was a public media report. Did you have reason to believe that one of my clients had anything to do with these reports?”
Chyna answered “no” every time.
At one point, she freely admitted that Kris Jenner had taught her a lesson on the subject.
“Actually, Miss Kris told me if you have celebrity kids, people will call the police at random, and CPS might come.”
The attorney took the opportunity and twice asked her to tell the jury what “CPS” meant.
“Child Protection Services,” she said, repeating it louder the second time.
“Have they ever come to your house?” he asked.
“Yes,” she said.
Chyna is to return to the witness stand. She is to testify for the first time in a case in which all four defendants are also expected to testify.
The lawsuit, which was filed in 2017, alleges defamation and infringement of contracts.
Two other defendants, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, were released from the trial ahead of the trial.
