Blac Chyna Under Investigation Despite Denying Claims She Allegedly Held A Woman Hostage In Shocking Hotel Incident
Shutting rumors down!
Blac Chyna is currently under investigation by Sacramento police following an incident at a party that allegedly resulted in a woman and her friends being held hostage in a hotel room for at least 20 minutes.
Despite the shocking claims, the 33-year-old model is denying all accusations of "criminal conduct" and chalking them up to petty false accusations.
The incident occurred when the mother-of-two reportedly invited a group of people back to her room at the Sheraton Grand Hotel, but according to an attendee, the "vibe" shifted when Chyna — who he stated appeared to be "high on cocaine" — began screaming at her guests, and then refused to let them leave the room.
Party-goer Ron Knighton told The Sun everyone was having a great time prior to the unsettling altercation. "The drinks were flowing and the energy in the suite was real good," he dished.
"Suddenly out of nowhere Chyna just yelled at my friend to ‘shut the f–k up’ or she’d beat both our asses," Knighton reportedly recalled. "The vibe immediately changed so at that point we thought it was best to leave, but when I went to walk out, she shut the door behind me and kept my friend in the room."
In a video taken by Knighton, he can he heard saying, "We aren't staying anywhere. We are leaving! You crazy?"
But Chyna was having none of Knighton's version of the story — video or not. Per her lawyer, Lynne Ciani, the socialite is denying any wrongdoing and writing off the incident as nothing more than "false accusations" meant to smear her image.
"This story is false," Ciani said in a statement to Radar. "This latest false accusation of criminal conduct is just the most recent in a long line of false accusations against Blac Chyna."
"We are very thankful that video evidence has allowed us to disprove past false allegations of 'assault & battery' by her then fiancé Rob Kardashian, a false accusation of 'assault with a deadly weapon', and now this false charge," she continued. "The video being circulated on social media shows that Blac Chyna did not hold anyone against their will."
Ciani then went on to rebuke the circulation of these stories, noting both she and the Rob & Chyna star were "hopeful that one day people will stop falsely accusing Blac Chyna of criminal conduct."
"Until that day, we will continue to disprove these false allegations to law enforcement and in the courtroom, if necessary," the celeb attorney added before concluding she wishes that in the future, the media would focus on the positive her client does, more than "sensationalistic and false accusations."
