Rob Kardashian Opens Up About Dropping Lawsuit Against Blac Chyna

Rob Kardashian has decided to drop his lawsuit against ex Blac Chyna according to legal documents recently obtained by E! News.

The lawsuit, which alleged Blac Chyna had assaulted Rob Kardashian, has been dismissed without prejudice. A judge has approved the motion, finalizing Rob’s decision to step down.

According to Rob, the decision came from a desire to do what was best for Dream, his daughter with Blac Chyna.

“My love for Dream far outweighs my desire to proceed with my claims against her mother in a public trial,” he said. “Now that the court has ruled that there is sufficient evidence to warrant a jury trial on my claim for assault, for our daughter’s sake, I am dismissing the action and focusing on my co-parenting relationship with Chyna.”

Blac Chyna’s attorney Lynne Ciani has also spoken up about Rob’s decision, saying the following in a statement to E! News:

“Chyna was finally about to have her day in court at a Feb. 23 jury trial in Los Angeles Superior Court where she was prepared to prove with evidence that Rob’s claim that she physically attacked and assaulted him was a malicious lie. Instead, Rob dropped his case on the eve of trial, not because he suddenly wanted to drop the case ‘for the sake of his daughter,’ but because he knew his assault and battery accusations against Chyna were false.”

Ciani continued to say, “Rob’s avoidance of the serious consequences of an adverse jury verdict is why he dropped his case, not his supposed ‘concern’ for his daughter.”

Motivation aside, this decision marks the end of a legal battle that began years ago in September of 2017, when Kardashian alleged that he suffered “repeated physical attacks” from his then-girlfriend.
