Blac Chyna – real name Angela White – lost her $108 million (R1.7 billion) defamation case against her ex-fiance and baby daddy Rob Kardashian’s family on Monday 2 May.

The model had been involved in a legal battle with Kris Jenner and her daughters Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. She filed a lawsuit five years ago, suing them for defamation and intentional interference with her contract for a reality show at E!.

BLAC CHYNA AWARDED NO DAMAGES

A Los Angeles jury ruled that while it did not completely exonerate the wealthy family of any wrongdoing, Chyna would still be awarded no damages at all.

According to PEOPLE, jurors were sent back into the jury room to answer two outstanding questions that they accidentally skipped, but that didn’t change the outcome of the ruling.

Daily Mail reported that the 13-page verdict revealed that the jury found all four Kardashian defendants’ actions were not justified where Chyna’s Rob and Chyna contract with E! was concerned.

In addition, it was found that only Kylie Jenner’s conduct intended to disrupt the performance of Chyna’s contract with E! The jurors also ruled that Kylie’s statement – “she (Chyna) will proceed with using and physically abusing my brother” – was not true.

Another claim made by Kris Jenner – “she (Chyna) beat the s*** out of Rob’s face” – was also found to be false.

LAWYERS WEIGH IN

The Kardashian-Jenner family was not present for the ruling as they attended the glittering Met Gala in New York City.

However, their family lawyer Michael G. Rhodes did reveal that he spoke to his clients who were “happy to have this behind them.”

“I think the case was very clear. The jury did a great job, they got it. The family was very pleased and grateful, they were exuberant,” PEOPLE quoted Rhodes as saying.

On the other hand, an unhappy Lynne Ciani – who is Chyna’s lawyer – also spoke after the verdict.

“I’ve never seen in my career before a jury have to go back and deliberate on four questions,” she said. “The victory is that Chyna did not physically abuse her fiancé, Rob.”

She also added that they will appeal.
