Blac Chyna’s mother Tokyo Toni is begging fans to donate $400,000 so that her
daughter can appeal the verdict in her defamation trial, which saw her lose a $108
million case against the Kardashians.
Chyna – real name Angela White – had accused Kim Kardashian
Kylie Jenner and their mother, Kris Jenner, of making statements that ruined or
defamed her reputation and of plotting to get her TV show Rob and Chyna axed.
Yet on Monday, the jury returned a verdict that, while it did not completely exonerate
the billionaire clan of any wrongdoing, still awarded Chyna, 33, no damages at all.
After Chyna vowed to appeal, Tokyo – real name Shalana Hunter – has launched a
GoFundMe to try and pay for her daughter’s appeal. Currently, $685 has been raised
by 37 donors.
Tokyo, 50, was banned from the courtroom during her daughter’s legal battle after a
scathing social media rant about the defendants.
During the jury selection process, she went live on Instagram and unleashed a furious
tirade in which she said the Kardashians ‘look like they dead’ in the flesh.
She called Kris ‘old and decrepit,’ comparing her to the villain in Saw, and said: ‘Khloe
was shaking her f***ing head off everything every juror said. You all right, b****? Did
you have some Xanax or something before you got there, b****?’
The Kardashian-Jenners attorney then argued in court that Kris ‘was worried about
her physical safety’ and the judge barred Toni from the courtroom.
The Los Angeles jury found that none of the members defamed Chyna, nor did any
interfere with her contract by convincing the E! network to cancel her reality show
Rob & Chyna.
The four Kardashian defendants – Kim, Kris, Khloé and Kylie – attended nearly the
entire trial, but when the verdict was read all were in New York at the Met Gala,
where this year’s theme was Gilded Glamour.
Chyna was in court for the verdict. She had no visible reaction.
