THE Kardashians are facing off with Blac Chyna in a long-awaited trial in Los Angeles, and the model has been accused of allegedly threatening to “kill” Rob Kardashian during their relationship.
Attorney Michael Rhodes accused Chyna of allegedly shouting at Rob during a previous fight, “I’m going to kill you,” asking: “You never said that to him?”
Chyna insisted she didn’t, but Rhodes claimed the threat was in leaked text messages, though he did not go into further detail.
Chyna also claimed in court on Wednesday that Kim Kardashian “reached out and said she can’t be friends with me anymore,” after Kylie Jenner started dating her former fiancé, Tyga.
Chyna is suing the Kardashian family for allegedly being the reason the second season of her reality show, Rob & Chyna, was canceled.
The influencer, whose real name is Angela Renée White, first filed the suit back in 2017 and is asking for more than $100million in damages.

Chyna said she didn’t recall what she smashed it with, saying: “I do not remember what I picked up, I was so furious.”
She claimed she was upset because Rob had taken her phone to check her messages.
