Ryan Seacrest could be brought into Blac Chyna‘s ongoing legal battle with the Kardashian family.

A judge ruled that Seacrest, an executive producer on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, can be deposed in the case, according to TMZ.

According to the website, the judge determined that Seacrest could have “superior and unique” knowledge as to why E! canceled Rob & Chyna, her short-lived reality show with then-fiancé Rob Kardashian.

The deposition will reportedly take place during a single day and last for three hours. It will also be recorded on video.

Chyna, 30, sued Rob, 32, and his family in October 2017, arguing that she suffered “significant damages” after her ex’s social media rampage that summer, in which he shared graphic and expletive-ridden content about her — including three naked photos — while accusing her of drug/alcohol abuse and infidelity.

Chyna alleged that the nude photo scandal — along with influence from the Kardashian family — are what got Rob & Chyna axed.

In December, a judge granted Chyna a trial date in the case, set for Feb. 3, 2020, with pre-trial depositions of the famous family to take place in the spring of 2019.

E! network and Bunim Murray Productions will also have to turn over documents relating to season 2 of Rob & Chyna.

During a January appearance on WWHL, Rob’s sisters brushed off the legal battle.

“[We’re] still in a lawsuit,” Kim Kardashian said. “We don’t know. We don’t care.”

“We just honestly can’t keep up,” added Khloé Kardashian.

Rob, 32, has long denied the physical and verbal assault claims brought against him by his ex.

The contentious exes share a 2-year-old daughter, Dream Kardashian.
