Blac Chyna is reportedly under criminal investigation for battery just days after
losing her $108million defamation lawsuit against the Kardashian-Jenner family.
According to TMZ, the alleged female victim, Sequoya King, claims that Chyna
‘damaged her phone and kicked her in the stomach’ during a physical altercation at a
bar in Los Angles early Friday morning.
LAPD sources told the outlet that Chyna is currently being named as a suspect and
the battery claims are being investigated by law enforcement.
The victim claimed to TMZ that the incident between herself and Chyna was a verbal
dispute that eventually turned physical.
She alleged that Chyna had initially gotten upset because she was convinced that
fellow bar patrons were recording her without her permission.
King claims that Chyna then directly accused her of ‘using her phone to record,’
though she denies ever recording the rapper.
As per King’s version of the events, their verbal back-and-forth escalated to a
physical level when Chyna allegedly snatched her cellphone out of her hand and
damaged it by throwing the device to the ground.
King also claimed that Chyna charged at her and ‘kicked her in the stomach, causing
her to fall down.’
She alleges that the altercation came to an end when Chyna’s posse pulled her away
from King and into a vehicle.
Chyna’s reported new legal woes come just days after she lost her $108 million case
against the Kardashians, which she’s since vowed to appeal.
She had accused Kim Kardashian, her sisters Khloe and Kylie Jenner and their
Kris Jenner, of making statements that ruined or defamed her reputation and of
plotting to get her TV show Rob and Chyna axed.
All four of the women testified during the nine-day trial. Kim was later dropped from
the defamation part of the suit.
On Monday, the jury returned a verdict that, while it did not completely exonerate
the billionaire clan of any wrongdoing, it still awarded Chyna no damages at all.
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.
After about 10 hours of deliberations, the jurors decided on the long jury form that
the Kardashians often acted in bad faith, finding that they were not justified in telling
the executives and producers of Rob & Chyna that Chyna abused their son and
brother Rob Kardashian.
But they found that it had no substantial effect on Chyna’s contract or the fate of the
show, and she was awarded no damages.
Executives from the E! network, which aired the show, testified that Rob & Chyna
ended because the relationship ended, not because of the defendants’ actions.
Chyna’s attorney Lynne Ciani said that based on her reading of the verdict, ‘the jury
found that Chyna had not physically abused Rob Kardashian,’ and ‘the jury found that
all four defendants had intentionally interfered with her contract with the E!
‘We will appeal on the remaining questions,’ she added.
Chyna sat in stunned silence as the court clerk announced their decision. Her mother
has now launched a GoFundMe to try and pay for her daughter’s appeal. She is
The Kardashians, meanwhile, were ‘exuberant’ at the news, their lawyer Michael
Rhodes said. They were not in court, because they were attending the Met Gala in
