The Kardashians finally came back for Season 2 of their hit Hulu show, The Kardashians. The first episode was full of drama, but the rest of the season was teased in the show. Let us just say there is a lot to figure out, like why the family was sued for $100 million for libel.
Even though the preview for the season did not say who was suing the family—specifically Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner—we all know that Blac Chyna sued them all for $100 million. In the teaser, a worried Khloé says, “We are putting our fate in the hands of 12 random people. “What if they do not like us? On the other hand, Kris says through tears, “It scares the shit out of me.”
What happened between Rob Kardashian’s ex-girlfriend and his family is as follows:
What does Blac Chyna have to do with the Kardashian family?
As many may remember, Rob, the only brother in the family, confirmed he was dating the model in 2016. After only a few months, he surprised his family by proposing to marry her and telling them they would have a baby together.
Chyna’s first child, King Cairo, was with the rapper Tyga, who was dating Rob’s younger sister Kylie at the time. In the end, things were pretty tense, and it took a while for the family to accept her.
But the relationship did not last long. After giving birth to their daughter Dream Kardashian at the end of 2016, they broke up for good in 2017. This was just the beginning of a very messy time for the Kardashian family.
Why did Blac Chyna file a $100 million lawsuit against the Kardashians?
Rob & Chyna, an E! reality show, was made about them while they were still “going strong,” whatever that means. The couple broke up after the show was picked up for a second season, and according to Us Weekly, the network told Variety that it would be put on hold because they wanted to “follow the [Kardashian] family’s lead” on what to do next.
The show was canceled and never came back for a second season. On the other hand, Chyna blamed the family for the cancellation of the show and, according to Us Weekly, filed a lawsuit for “defamation, intentional interference with contract, and intentional interference.”
Who won when Blac Chyna and the Kardashians went to court?
Last spring, Rob and Chyna’s family members, who were named in the lawsuit, testified against her in court. Kris’s boyfriend, Corey Gamble, told the court that he saw Chyna hit Rob. It also appeared that she held a gun to Rob’s head, which she said was a “joke.”
Just hours before the Met Gala, it was announced that the Kardashian family had won the case and would not have to pay Chyna any money. This shows that the Met Gala gods were looking down on the family.
The Kardashians airs every Wednesday at 9 p.m. PT and every Thursday at 12 a.m. ET on Hulu.
