Blac Chyna sues Kardashian clan over revenge porn

Much as we hate to put the over-exposed Kardashian family in this space, news that Blac Chyna is suing them is hard to resist.

USA Today reports that Rob Kardashian’s ex filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that he and his family damaged her brand and abused her.

The suit follows a tumultuous split for the pair, who began dating in January 2016 and had a baby girl Dream in November, before breaking up a month later.

In July, Rob, 30, attacked his estranged ex online, posting photos of her naked breasts and genitals and profanely accusing her of sleeping with another man.

Even though he took down some of the pictures, it made him vulnerable to charges of revenge porn, a crime in California.

In the suit, Chyna (real name: Angela White), 29, claims she suffered “significant damages,” and that the scandal and the Kardashians got the couple’s reality show pulled from E!.

“Rob Kardashian is an abuser intent on destroying Angela White, the mother of his baby, who left him in 2016,” the complaint says. “In revenge, the Kardashian-Jenner family became media predators, slut-shaming her on social media and killing her hit television show, which had already begun filming a second season.”

The suit calls the Kardashian clan “vindictive” and names Rob, momager Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.

At this point, Chyna and Rob have dueling lawsuits: In September, Rob and Kylie sued Chyna for battery, assault and vandalism, claiming she attempted to choke Rob with an iPhone cord during a fight last December.

In other legal developments, Johnny Depp filed a complaint on Tuesday, claiming he was swindled out of nearly $35 million by Hollywood lawyer Jacob A. Bloom, known for high-profile clients including Ron Howard, Nicolas Cage and Jackie Chan.
