Blac Chyna has filed a motion to dismiss Rob Kardashian‘s assault and battery claims after he accused her of strangling him with an iPhone charger in September 2017
“Chyna has submitted evidence to the court proving that she never committed assault and battery against Rob and that his case should be thrown out of court,” attorney Lynne M. Ciani said in a statement.
Kardashian filed a lawsuit in September 2017 claiming Chyna, 31, strangled him with the charger after consuming significant amounts of drugs and alcohol. The incident allegedly occurred in December 2016.
Chyna has denied these claims but Kardashian stands by his accusations, his lawyer, Marty Singer, said.
“Blac Chyna’s motion seeking to dismiss the claims against her for assault and battery is without merit. She admitted in her deposition that she wrapped an iPhone charger cord around Rob’s neck. In addition, there are several third parties who witnessed the assault. We feel confident that the court will deny the motion.”
Chyna and Kardashian are currently in a custody battle over their 3-year-old daughter Dream.
Her claim against her baby daddy for allegedly posting revenge porn photos of her will also be tried before a jury on May 26, the lawyer added.
Chyna also wants to put an end to her ongoing legal battles with other members of the Kardashian clan.
