Kardashians Appear in Court for Jury Selection in the Family's Case Against Blac Chyna

Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner were seen in the courtroom without Rob Kardashian

The Kardashians are gearing up for their trial against Blac Chyna.

According to courtroom sketches obtained by PEOPLE, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner all appeared in court on Monday. However, Rob Kardashian, Chyna's ex, was noticeably absent. The famous family was present to witness their legal team and Chyna's own representatives select the trial's jury.

Chyna, 33, was also spotted making her way into the courthouse.

TMZ was the first to report the news.

Chyna's legal battle with the Kardashian-Jenner family began in 2017. After her on-off relationship with Rob, 35, ended, Chyna — born Angela White — claimed the Kardashians were responsible for influencing the cancellation of the Keeping Up with Kardashians spinoff, Rob & Chyna.

Blac Chyna filed a $108 million lawsuit against the Kardashians, accusing the billionaire clan of deliberately plotting to have her hit TV show Rob and Chyna axed.

The parents of 5-year-old Dream starred in the series for one season. At the time, a spokesperson for the network told Variety that Rob & Chyna had "not been in production for several months and the series is not currently on the E! schedule."

Right before the show's decision was announced, Rob leaked nude photos of Chyna on social media. She has since claimed the revenge porn incident, in addition to Rob's family's influence at E!, led to the show's abrupt end.

Chyna recently addressed the case publicly, saying that she wanted to "re-focus [her] attention" on winning in court.

"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," Chyna, who also shares 9-year-old son King Cairo with Tyga, wrote in the statement on Twitter. "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.' 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."

Added Chyna, "At the end of the trial, I'm going to be able to proudly tell King and Dream that I did everything I could to right the wrong that was done to me. And that, in life, it is my hope that they will be able to stand up for themselves when it matters too."

Rob, on the other hand, is "focused on being a great dad" to the former couple's daughter.

"Rob's family really loves her," a source recently told PEOPLE. "Rob spends a lot of time with Dream. She brings him a lot of joy. She is in preschool and doing great."
