Rob Kardashian files for dismissal of assault lawsuit against Blac Chyna
According to reports, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian have settled their legal battle.
In legal documents reviewed by Page Six, Kardashian requested that his assault and battery case against his ex-girlfriend be dismissed. During a drug- and alcohol-fueled rampage, Kardashian sued the mother of his child, alleging that she struck him with a metal pole and tried to strangle him with an iPhone cord.
Chyna also allegedly pointed a gun at him and caused more than $100,000 worth of damage to the home he was renting from his sister, Kylie Jenner. The claims have been denied by Chyna.
Kardashian, 38, told Page Six on Friday that his love for Dream (Chyna and Rob's 5-year-old daughter) outweighs his desire to see Chyna tried publicly. “Now that the court has ruled that there is sufficient evidence to warrant a jury trial on my claim for assault, for our daughter’s sake, I am dismissing the action and focusing on my co-parenting relationship with Chyna.”
An assault case was due to be tried about a week after the dismissal was announced. Victory Belz and Eugene Shpilsky, two of Kardashian's close friends, were expected to testify in court. During multiple instances, Kardashian was reportedly threatened with a gun by Chyna.
