Kylie Jenner Testifies Tyga Said Blac Chyna Once Attacked Him – Billboard

Kylie Jenner testified Monday that she raised concerns with her brother Rob Kardashian about his new girlfriend and future reality TV co-star, Blac Chyna, because she had heard that Chyna had a tendency to abuse drugs and alcohol and become violent and she had returned a possible glimpse of herself.

“I felt it was my duty to voice my concerns, but ultimately it was up to him,” Jenner, now 24 and a teenager at the time, said from the witness stand at a Los Angeles trial. She said that her brother did not heed her warnings and continued the relationship.

Chyna is suing Jenner and three other members of the Kardashian family, claiming they smeared her for violence and forced the cancellation of her reality show, “Rob & Chyna,” after a short season.

Both Chyna and Jenner had previous relationships with rapper Tyga, with Chyna having a child with him. Jenner said Tyga told her dark stories of her time with Chyna and showed her a 6-inch knife scar he said she gave him while she was abusing drugs and alcohol, Jenner said.

Jenner said that while dating Tyga, she had received at least one threatening text from Chyna.

“From what I remember, he sent me a bunch of devil emojis and said something like ‘counting down the days’ until he could beat me or something,” she said. “I didn’t report it, because I assumed they were empty threats.”

Jenner testified that when Rob Kardashian and Chyna started dating in January 2016, she didn’t trust Chyna’s love was genuine.

“I felt like dating the father of her child had something to do with it, and maybe she was dating my brother for other reasons.”

Still, he said, he was cautiously optimistic after they announced in April 2016 that they were getting engaged and said in May that they were having a baby together.

“I was happy for my brother at the time,” Jenner said, “but I was curious what it would be like.”

“Rob & Chyna” was set to premiere in September, the couple would have a daughter, Dream, in November, and in December they would celebrate all night the approval of their show for a second season that turned into a bitter fight.

That feud, and how violent it may have become, was at the center of testimony from both Chyna and Jenner’s mother, Kris Jenner. Chyna said she was joking when she wrapped the phone’s charging cable around her fiancé’s neck and grabbed her gun. Kris Jenner, who did not witness the fight, tearfully testified that he felt Chyna had tried to “murder” her son.

Kylie Jenner, in whose house the two had been living, testified that after the fight she saw some of the damage and recalls that her brother was emotionally traumatized, but did not recall seeing any evidence of physical injury.

He definitely came out believing the violence had been serious, he testified.

“He used the words, ‘She was trying to kill me,'” Kylie Jenner said.

Jenner returns to the witness stand on Tuesday.

The other two defendants, Khloé Kardashian and Kim Kardashian, are expected to testify later in the week. Kim Kardashian was not in court Monday for the first time in the six-day trial.

Another witness, Jeff Olde, who in 2016 was senior vice president of E! Network, which aired “Rob & Chyna” and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” testified that he approved a second season for the show, though more approval from his bosses would still be needed.

But his enthusiasm for more episodes was based on the idea that it would include the stars getting married.

“I thought it was really promising because with a wedding that gave us a hook for the second season,” Olde said. “Everyone loves a wedding.”

Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, pressed Olde over an email she received from Kylie Jenner expressing concern about Chyna’s violent behavior. Email is a key element of Chyna’s defamation case.

Olde testified that it didn’t particularly influence his decision to change course on a second season of “Rob & Chyna.”

“I don’t really take direction from 17-year-olds,” he said.

A similar email shortly after from Khloé Kardashian also had little effect, he said. He thought the show should be cancelled, he testified, because the couple he was hosting was no longer a couple.

“It was the Rob and Chyna show and there was no more Rob and Chyna,” he said. “It wasn’t the show we bought.”
