After the verdict was read on Monday, May 2, Chyna's attorney Lynne Ciani spoke to reporters outside the courtroom, revealing: ”Two things. Number one, the jury found that Chyna had not physically abused Rob Kardashian," and, "Number two, the jury found that all four defendants intentionally interfered with [Chyna’s] contracts with the E! Network. We will appeal the remainder of the verdict."

KYLIE JENNER SLAMMED FOR WEARING WEDDING GOWN TO 2022 MET GALA: 'THE WORST SHE'S EVER LOOKED'

The social media personality sued Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Kylie Jenner for more than $100 million claiming they were responsible for getting her and Rob's MTV series, Rob & Chyna, canceled from the E! network shortly after the former couple's explosive 2016 fight. (Rob claimed that during the fight in question, the mother of his 5-year-old daughter, Dream, held a gun up to his head twice, used a metal pole to beat him and strangled him with an iPhone cord.)

Though the famous family maintained they didn't pressure the network executives and producers to ax the second season of Rob & Chyna — with Khloé admitting on the stand that the family considered canceling their own series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, if the coparents' show continued — the jury found the family's actions were not justified with respect to Chyna’s “contractual relationship” with the E! Network.

Nevertheless, the 12-member jury concluded the Kardashian-Jenners shouldn't be held liable in Chyna’s defamation claims and didn't have to pay her damages for her loss of income and future earnings.
