Blac Chyna to Appeal Kardashian-Jenner Lawsuit Verdict, Lawyer Says

On Monday, a jury sided with The Kardashians family and awarded no monetary damages to The Real Black Chyna star

Blac Chyna will appeal the verdict in her defamation case against the Kardashian-Jenner family, her lawyer said.

The news comes after The Kardashians family members were cleared of all the key questions in court on Monday. No monetary damages were awarded to Chyna.

"The jury found that Chyna had not physically abused Rob Kardashian," Chyna's attorney Lynne Ciani said to The Associated Press. She added that "the jury found that all four defendants had intentionally interfered with her contract with the E! Network."

In response, she said she and client Chyna, 33, "will appeal on the remaining questions."

Kim Kardashian was dropped from the lawsuit by a judge earlier in the trial, but sisters Kylie Jenner, Khloé Kardashian and Kris Jenner were named in the defamation suit. Chyna attempted to prove that the Kardashian-Jenner family had purposely interfered to cause the cancellation of her E! Show Rob & Chyna — which aired while she was engaged to brother Rob Kardashian.

In a statement on Twitter in April, Chyna explained her thoughts behind the court case. "When they got my No. 1 hit show killed back in January 2017, that not only hurt me financially and emotionally, that hurt my beautiful KIDS," she wrote.

"I'm taking them to court to stand up for my legal rights and to be an example to my kids that 'what's right is right, what's wrong is wrong,'" she continued. "And what they did was so wrong. I am so thankful that a jury will finally listen to what really happened behind closed doors — the lies that were told and the damage that was done."

In a conversation with Variety at the Met Gala on Monday night, Kris explained her feelings around the end of the legal battle.

"I'm just happy it's over," she said, adding that prayer helped her through it.

"I live in my faith," Jenner said. "And just hope that that's enough, and yeah. I'm glad it's over, and I'm glad it's over for the girls."
