Kim Kardashian Dropped From Blac Chyna Lawsuit After Being Cleared Of Defamation Accusations
In the clear? Kim Kardashian has been dropped from the lawsuit Blac Chyna filed against her and her family.
Chyna, 33, had sued Kim, Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian for defamation and interference, claiming they made false declarations about her in order to prevent her and ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian's series Rob & Chyna being renewed for another season. But according to a report from PEOPLE, the court agreed on Friday, April 29, that nothing ever said by the Skims designer, 41, was defamatory.
"[Blac Chyna's] vague assertion on the record during [her] argument that Kim Kardashian 'ratified those statements and encouraged her sisters to make them' — without specifying how Kim Kardashian ratified them and to whom — is woefully insufficient to maintain a claim," the document reads. "Additionally, statements by other Defendants cannot form the basis of a defamation claim against Kim Kardashian because neither her mother nor her sisters ever acted as her agent."
The outlet claims Chyna's team countered that she still "has the right to a jury trial against Defendant Kim Kardashian for defamation," but the judge sided with the famous family.
"There is no evidence that defendant Kim Kardashian took a 'responsible part' in the publication of the alleged statement by the other defendants," the ruling stated.

However, the mom-of-four could still be charged with "alleged intentional interference with a contract." The outlet reported that a final decision for the makeup mogul and the rest of her relatives could come by the end of today, Friday, April 29.
As OK! reported, Chyna was denied when she requested to redo her testimony, something she wanted to do because she became "derailed" when the Kardashians lawyer presented her with papers that had the nude photos her ex had once leaked attached to them. It was previously agreed that the snaps would not be presented to jurors, and though they weren't, Chyna was reportedly still "upset" over the incident.
The mom-of-two's attorney claimed that showing Chyna the pictures was "a deliberate and unethical psychological attack" on her client, an accusation the Kardashians' lawyer called "absurd."
