Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian reach a SETTLEMENT in her ‘revenge porn’ lawsuit against him

Reality star Blac Chyna has reached an 11th hour cash settlement with her ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian in her lawsuit accusing him of posting ‘revenge porn’ of her online after they split up.

Just how much Rob – Chyna’s co-star in the reality show Rob and Chyna and father of her five-year-old daughter Dream – agreed to pay the 34-year-old hasn’t been disclosed and will likely remain ‘confidential.’

But the settlement averts a jury trial that was scheduled to start today at Los Angeles Superior Court.

As prospective jurors gathered outside the courtroom, neither Chyna nor Rob showed up today – and nor did their attorneys – for what was supposed to be the process to select 12 men and women for a jury.

Instead, Judge Gregory Alarcon’s clerk announced that a settlement had been reached between the former couple.

The judge will formally dismiss the revenge porn lawsuit – which Chyna filed almost five years ago – in a written ruling later today.

Today’s settlement comes four days after a motion from Rob claiming the two had already agreed a settlement was thrown out by the judge.

Chyna had insisted that she’d never signed any such agreement.

And, after hearing arguments from lawyers on both sides, Judge Alarcon denied Rob’s motion to enforce the settlement he insisted they had reached.

In the settlement Rob claimed he and Chyna brokered, she supposedly agreed to drop the revenge porn lawsuit if he got her removed from another unrelated lawsuit brought against both of them by her former friend, Pilot Jones, who accused them of falsely outing him as gay.

His attorney, Eagan, argued Thursday that the settlement Chyna denied signing, was actually agreed on May 23 via email by her attorney Lynne Ciani.

And, he added, Rob lived up to his side of the bargain by getting Chyna removed from the Jones lawsuit.

‘We performed the request…..And we got the dismissal (of the Jones case), signed by Mr. Jones.’

But he said, Ciani was trying to renege on the agreement and push for the revenge porn trial anyway.

‘She is trying to re-trade after we performed our part of the agreement,’ said Eagan. ‘It’s a classic bait and switch with them saying now, ‘We want hundreds and thousands of dollars.’

Ciani called Eagan’s motion to enforce the settlement he claimed Rob had, ‘absurd’ and ‘preposterous.’

‘There is no binding agreement to enforce,’ she told the court Thursday. ‘They are trying to enforce an unenforceable agreement.’

She said that Chyna never agreed to give up her claim to financial damages for the revenge porn lawsuit if the Jones case was dismissed.

‘We have a legal right to go to trial.’

Ciani added that the revenge porn case comes down to money.

‘What X amount of dollars would get this settled,’ she said. ‘If we came up with an amount to agree on, we would not be here today.’

Eagan proposed sending the case to a settlement judge for a ‘negotiated resolution.’

‘The parties do want to settle this case,’ he said. ‘Mr. Kardashian thought he had an agreement.

‘He doesn’t want his daughter in five or 10 years to read about a fight between her parents involving sexually explicit images.’

Ciani countered, saying that Chyna ‘wants her daughter to know that it is not OK to have nude photos posted against your will.

‘Revenge porn is serious – it’s a crime.’

Thursday’s ruling sending the case to trial was a major victory for Chyna who is still smarting over her loss to the Kardashian women in April when the jury in her $108 million defamation lawsuit against the billionaire family awarded her zero in damages.

It was also welcome news for her, hot on the heels of another blow dealt to the former stripper last week when the Kardashians stuck her with a $391,000 bill for expenses they ran up during her losing trial. She’s fighting their cash demand.

After Thursday’s ruling, Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, told DailyMail.com, ‘Chyna is very pleased that the trial judge denied Rob’s motion to ‘enforce’ a settlement that never existed.

‘Without a settlement, Chyna will prove her case to a Los Angeles jury on June 20 that Rob posted devastating revenge porn of her to millions of his Instagram followers without her consent.

‘Revenge porn is a very dangerous form of violence predominantly perpetrated against girls and women. Victims of revenge porn typically experience serious anxiety, shame, and helplessness. Some revenge porn victims have committed suicide.

‘Rob Kardashian has never taken responsibility for his heinous and vengeful act of posting revenge porn against Chyna in July 2017.

‘He was never criminally prosecuted. It is finally time for Rob to be held accountable in a court of law.’
